Code 2 of 5 is a low-density numeric barcode that does not require a checksum.
It is a non-interleaved barcode that is easier to print than Interleaved 2 of 5
because interleaving is not required.
Industrial 2 of 5 barcode fonts are scalable, and should be printed at the
correct font size to suit both application and scanner equipment. The Code 2 of
5 barcode font was designed to be printed at 6 to 20 points with a minimum font
size of 6 points; however, it can print smaller point sizes if the printer and
scanner equipment support it.
Details of the Industrial Code 25 Barcode Font Package
Easy To Use:
The symbology of the Industrial Code 2 of 5 character set consists of barcode
symbols representing the numbers 0-9, the start character and the stop
character. In the code 2 of 5 barcode fonts, the parentheses are used as start
and stop characters.
For example, to create a barcode
that encodes the data "1234" with the Code 25 Font:
- Select the font from the list of fonts in the application.
- Type the start character; in this example it is "(".
- Type the data; in this example it is "1234".
- Type the stop character; in this example it is ")".
- Change the font back to the
default font of the document.
Multiple Versions Provided:
Four versions of Code 2 of 5 barcode fonts are provided to support different
height-width requirements. The last character in the Code 25 barcode font
name determines the height of the barcode with the shortest being
IDAutomationC25XS and the tallest being IDAutomationC25L.
To decide which Code 2 of 5 barcode font to use, first print out the IDAutomationC25XS barcode font at 10 or 12 points and determine the smallest size that will work with the barcode scanner. Then, choose the
