A variable length, bi-directional bar code standard in many industries that consists of a total of nine bars, three of which are wide.
A full alphanumeric bar code consisting of nine black and white bars for each character symbol.
An alphanumeric bar code symbology that is discrete, variable length, and self-checking. It requires loose printing tolerances. It is used in manufacturing, government agencies, and health care. The character set is A – Z uppercase, 0 – 9, dollar sign ($), period (.), slash (/), percent (%), space ( ), plus, (+), and minus (-). It can be extended to full 128 character ASCII by use of a two-character encoding scheme (see full ASCII). Its maximum density is 9.8 characters per inch.
Standard bar code symbology and one of the most widely used.
Is the most commonly used bar code. It can encode both numbers and letters, which is ideal for most industrial and non-retail applications. The Automotive industry uses Code 39 as its standard for shipping container labels. If you are just starting out a bar code application of your own, we recommend using Code 39. EXAMPLE OF A CODE 39 BAR CODE
The Code 39 symbology (also called "3 of 9" and "the universal code"), developed by Intermec, is probably the most commonly used barcode, and it is a standard for many government bar code specifications. This barcode encodes numbers, uppercase letters, and some punctuation. The list of valid characters for the Code 39 barcode includes: Capital letters A to Z Numbers 0 to 9 The space character Symbols -.
A code developed by Intermec that encodes 43 data characters (0 through 9, A through Z, six symbols, and a space); three of the nine elements are wide and six elements are narrow. Normal bar code density is 9.4 characters per inch, depending on the 'X' dimension width. Also known as Code 3 of 9.
A full alphanumeric bar code consisting of nine black and white bars. Three bars are wide (Code 3 of 9). Code 39 is the most frequently used symbology in industrial bar code systems today.
A full alphanumeric bar code type composed of five bars, four spaces, and an intercharacter gap for each character. Code 39 is the standard for many industries, including adoption by the U.S. Department of Defense for its LOGMARS specification. Also known as USD-3 code and 3 of 9 code, it is one of three symbologies identified in the ANSI standard MH10.8M-1983.
A discrete, variable length, self-checking alphanumeric symbology employing two-element widths. Every character has five bars and four spaces; three of the elements in any given character are wide, and six are narrow. Every symbol starts and ends with a unique start/stop character.
a code developed by the Intermec Corporation that encodes 43 data characters. Each data character is represented by nine elements (five bars and four spaces), where three of the nine are wide elements and the remaining are narrow elements. Code 39 also is referred to as “Code 3 of 9.
a bar code symbology that encodes 43 data elements (0-9, A-Z and 7 special characters). Each character has 9 elements, bars have two widths.
variable length, bi-directional, discrete, self-checking, alpha-numeric bar code. Code 39 encodes 43 characters; zero through nine, capital "A" through capital "Z", minus symbol, plus symbol, forward slash, space, decimal point, dollar sign and percent symbol. Each character is encoded by 9 bars, 3 of which are always wide.
An alphanumeric bar code type which can encode capital letters, numbers and 7 special characters.
Code 39 (also known as "USS Code 39", "Code 3/9", "Code 3 of 9", "USD-3", "Alpha39") is a barcode symbology that can encode uppercase letters (A through Z), digits (0 through 9) and a handful of special characters like the $ sign. The barcode itself does not contain a check digit (in contrast to—for instance—Code 128), but it can be considered self-checking by some, on the grounds that a single erroneously interpreted bar cannot generate another valid character. Possibly the most serious drawback of Code 39 is its low data density: It requires more space to encode data in Code 39 than, for example, in Code 128.
