Data Matrix Barcode Font and Encoder

  • Data Matrix Barcode Font and Encoder PackagesGenerates 2D Data Matrix barcodes, including ECC200 and UID markings, with fonts and font encoder tools.
  • Complies with ECC200, Department of Defense UID, ANSI/AIM C11, ISO/IEC 16022, ISO/IEC 15434, MIL-STD-130 and other specifications that require Data Matrix.
  • Easily integrates with many 32 and 64-bit platforms such as Windows 7, Mac, Linux, UNIX and applications including Microsoft 2013 Excel, Word, Access, Crystal Reports, FileMaker Pro, VB, .NET, Java, ActiveX and many others.
  • Utilizes Vertical Interleaved Technology™, which allows for the display or printing of barcodes as small as 3 points, an X dimension of .025CM (10 mils).
  • Supports encoding of Functions, such as Tab, Escape and others, allowing scanned data to output to a variety of fields rather than just one.
  • With a purchase of the Developer License or above, Web Fonts are included in WOFF, EOT and SVG formats to easily display barcodes in any web browser.
  • Data Matrix fonts require special formatting so that the data-to-encode will create a readable barcode when the font is applied to it. Font encoders and graphic encoders are provided to complete this encoding process automatically.
  • Single and Multi-User Licenses for the DataMatrix ECC200 Font and Encoder start from $199, with Royalty-free Developer Licenses from $595.

Data Matrix Font and Encoder Overview

Order the Data Matrix Font and Encoder PackageData Matrix is a popular 2D barcode symbology that is capable of encoding much larger quantities of data than standard linear barcodes. The data encoded in a Data Matrix barcode may include text letters, numbers and actual bytes of data such as extended characters, Unicode characters and even small images. Consider restricting the data-to-encode into each symbol due to the fact that many 2D barcode scanners have difficulty reading barcodes that contain more than approximately 800 characters of data.

This Data Matrix barcode was generated using IDAutomation Data Matrix FontsTo print Data Matrix barcodes as a font, the data-to-encode must first be formatted with an IDAutomation Data Matrix encoder, which will return a text string that, when combined with the Data Matrix Font, will create an accurate Data Matrix barcode. For example, sending the text of "IDAUTOMATION DataMatrix Font and Encoder" through the encoder returns the string of characters as depicted below on the left. An accurate Data Matrix barcode is generated with the appropriate font is applied to that text string.

The text string returned from the Data Matrix Encoder. This Data Matrix barcode displays when applying the font to the text string.

Multiple Encoders Provided

Multiple encoders mean more options for integrating Data Matrix barcoding into application. Using an encoder is necessary because of the complexity of the 2D Data Matrix barcode symbology. IDAutomation provides both font and graphic encoders in these packages.

The accompanying chart summarizes how font and graphic encoders work to generate accurate Data Matrix barcodes.
