    9 - 82 DS4208 Digital Scanner Product Reference Guide Security Level Parameter # 4Dh The digital scanner offers four levels of decode security for delta bar codes, which include UPC/EAN and Code 93. Select increasing levels of security for decreasing levels of bar code quality. There is an inverse relationship between security and digital scanner aggressiveness, so choose only that level of security necessary for any given application.

  • Page 246: Intercharacter Gap Size

    Symbologies 9 - 83 Intercharacter Gap Size Parameter # F0h 7Dh The Code 39 and Codabar symbologies have an intercharacter gap that is typically quite small. Due to various bar code-printing technologies, this gap can grow larger than the maximum size allowed, preventing the digital scanner from decoding the symbol.
