UCC/EAN-128 Barcode

The UCC/EAN-128 symbology is a variation of the original Code 128 symbology designed primarily for use in product identification applications. The UCC/EAN-128 specification uses the same code set as Code 128 except that it does not allow function codes FNC2-FNC4 to be used in a symbol and FNC1 is used as part of the start code in the symbol. The check digit in UCC/EAN-128 symbols is also calculated slightly differently than in Code 128.

You simply enter the human readable line including the brackets: e.g. (11)050301(13)050301. The software will removes the brackets and codes the UCC/EAN-128 code correct as 1105030113050301. If you are using AI's that have a variable length of data, you may be forced to use the control character FNC1 before the next AI to close the current AI. This control character "tells" the scanner that this AI is closed and a new one will follow. To create a FNC1, you simply enter into the text property: e.g. (10)ABC123(11)050301
