Barcode verifiers are Quality Control test instruments that verify a barcode’s print conformance to ANSI/ISO Standards. Selection of the correct verifier is very application dependent. Important criteria for verifier selection include the symbologies to be verified and the density (“x” factor) of the barcodes. Portable printers are options.

What is barcode verification?

Testing the barcode to assure it’s parameters conform to industry standards and verify the content is correct. Barcodes are usually evaluated and given a grade of A through F.

Why verify barcodes?

Simply, good verification will assure the barcode will be readable by all parties in the supply chain, facilitating speedy, accurate inventories and movement of goods from manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer and user.

Criteria for verification

Specific items tested in the barcode verification process include:

  • Code Content
  • Code Symbology
  • Readability-an overall evaluation
  • Bar growth-tolerances on bar width
  • Quiet Zone-Clear area before and after the code
  • Reflectivity
  • Contrast of printed code

Selecting a verifier

Determine which symbologies are in use. Decide if portability is required.
Define the maximum length of the barcode in inches or millimeters

Many users provide us with samples of their codes for evaluation to enable us to recommend which verifier may be the right choice for the application. Call us at 800 729-2444; we look forward to the opportunity to assist you.
