Successful creation of bar-codes for printing requires reliable software capable of generating valid bar-codes of the required symbology.
We provide a range of software. From simple production of bar-codes on the PC’s clipboard for adding to pre-designed documents; right through to sophisticated label & form design and print software that can be linked to databases and/or generate complex bar-code data from several concatenated sources including serial numbers etc. The more sophisticated design and print software can incorporate relevant live data at print time.

The above software can print bar-codes in forms or labels on standard PC printers or on specialist label printers. Label printers are convenient when pre-designed labels are required on demand or in large numbers.
Another type of label printer is one where the labels can be designed on the label machine itself – as well as, in some cases, via a PC program. These typically use an adhesive plastic tape anything from 6mm to 36 mm wide available in a range of colours.

Where it is required to add bar-code capability to an existing laser page printer the product to use is a Bar-Code Printer Module.

For every day use we recommend the CCD based barcode scanner. Its sophisticated ergonomic design includes unmatched low power consumption and built-in quality. It is programmable and supports all popular computer interfaces. Its advanced decoding technology allows decoding of nineteen of the most popular bar code symbologies available today. It is rugged, reliable and dependable. Available in hand-held and fixed versions connecting to your PC or Mac via USB or Bluetooth.

For more sophisticated or specialist requirements Laser base barcode scanners provide accuracy and reading at a distance.

Fixed barcode scanners are used where hands free reading is required, again there is a choice of cost effective CCD products and more sophisticated Laser products.

For accountable verification of printed barcodes it is necessary to use specialist equipment known as Barcode Verifiers. These analyse bar code quality against traditional quality parameters and ANSI/CEN/ISO bar code print quality guidelines. Each unit includes all standard symbologies and is manufactured and traceable to N.I.S.T. (National Institute of Standards and Technology) standards developed by the U.C.C. (Uniform Code Council) and AIM (Automatic Identification Manufacturers).

Where data needs to be collected, verified and quantified an intelligent terminal capable of being configured with the electronic equivalent of one or more forms is used. This type of device is called a Portable Data Terminal – or PDT.

We have a good range of PDTs which can be viewed and ordered on-line – click here.

PDTs are a combination of a small hand-held computer and a built in bar-code scanner. The PDT is configured by designing a form in an easy to use PC program. The form can comprise of prompts to scan a bar-code and for data, such as quantity, names or other text. The form is downloaded to the PDT together with any required look-up tables and it is the ready to use.

There can be several forms, selected on the PDT by a menu. Each use of a form saves a transaction which can be time and date stamped. The number of transaction that can be stored in the PDT is a function of its memory capacity – typically hundreds or thousands can be stored.

When the work is done the PDT is either physically located in a cradle near the PC or, in some cases is connected by a wireless transmission protocol. The transactions are then uploaded to the PC for processing, and after possibly recharging the PDTs battery it is ready to use for more.

On-line PDTs are also available, typically using WiFi to link to a database server. For example, we created a live ticket validation system for the Royal International Air Tattoo 2011.
