Nine modules with three bars

varying width bars of 1, 2 or 3
modules wide
Code 93 is compatible with Code 39 but uses a smaller space to represent a character. A label produced in Code 93 is approximately 25% shorter than the same label produced in Code 39. A state-of-the-art handheld scanner will usually be able to auto-discriminate between Code 93 and Code 39 so they can be used interchangeably. Code 93 is alphanumeric and represents the full 128 ASCII character set along with control characters. Because of its complexity it also has two check characters built into its algorithm. The unique modularity in Code 93 permits special buffering and information directing in software. Code 93 is available in 13.89 cpi density or greater.

Applications For Code 93:

  • Healthcare
  • Graphics
  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive
  • Electronics
  • Paper
