    13-50 Symbol LS4278 Product Reference Guide Symbology - Intercharacter Gap The Code 39 and Codabar symbologies have an intercharacter gap that is customarily quite small. Due to various bar code printing technologies, this gap may grow larger than the maximum size allowed, causing the scanner to be unable to decode the symbol. If this problem is encountered, scan Large Intercharacter Gaps to tolerate out-of-specification bar codes.

    Advanced Data Formatting 14-3 Introduction Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) is a means of customizing data before transmission to your host device. Scan data can be edited to suit your particular requirements. ADF can be implemented by scanning a related series of bar codes, which begin on page 14-7, or by installing the 123Scan utility (see Chapter 12, 123Scan) which allows the scanner to be set up and programmed with Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) Rules.

  • Page 254: Adf Bar Code Menu Example, Rule 1: The Code 128 Scanning Rule

    14-4 Symbol LS4278 Product Reference Guide ADF Bar Code Menu Example This section provides an example of how ADF rules are entered and used for scan data. An auto parts distribution center wants to encode manufacturer ID, part number, and destination code into their own Code 128 bar codes.

  • Page 255: Alternate Rule Sets

    Advanced Data Formatting 14-5 Alternate Rule Sets ADF rules may be grouped into one of four alternate sets which can be turned on and off when needed. This is useful when you want to format the same message in different ways. For example, a Code 128 bar code contains the following information: Class (2 digits), Stock Number (8) digits, Price (5 digits) This bar code might look like this: 245671243701500...
