Bar Codes: An Introduction

Big BarcodeA barcode is a series of parallel, adjacent bars and spaces that hold information. Information is encoded into spaces and bars of various width. A barcode device scans the bars, translates the information back into regular characters, and allows them to be viewed and stored on a computer or portable terminal.

There are many different barcode symbologies (bar code type). Each uses its own unique pattern of bars and spaces. The UPC code used in the retail market is an all-numeric code; so is the Interleaved 2 of 5 Code. Code 39 was the first commercial alphanumeric bar code symbology. Code 128 is also an industrial code that includes the ASCII character code set.
