http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1824191/what_upc_barcode_numbers_mean.html?cat=3 The UPC, or Universal Product Code, barcode is a method of marking consumer products so that they may be identified easily. Most UPC barcodes, called version A, and have twelve numbers. However, there are other versions such as the UPC version E with only eight digits, and the ISBN-13 version with thirteen numbers used for books. There are also other barcode systems such as EAN-13 and EAN-8 that are used outside the U.S. But the UPC version A barcode is the most common. What do the numbers in the UPC version A barcode mean? There have been rumors circulating recently stating that the first the digits of any UPC barcode represents the country where the item was made. Many internet users have received emails regarding this. The emails usually also give a listing of three digit numbers and their corresponding country. These emails are generally not from spammers, but from friends or relatives relaying this information with good intentions. Since many American consumers do not want to buy products from certain foreign countries, this seemed like a great way to tell where the product was from. Believing the three digit story in the emails, American consumers who wanted to buy only American products, had, it seemed, a way of assuring the origin of a product. And they could avoid buying products from countries that sell inferior products, have no laws regulating food processing and use processing methods that are illegal in the U.S. However, the three digit story is untrue. The senders of these emails were misinformed and those who received them were unintentionally misled. The first three digits of the UPC barcode does not represent the country where the product was made. So what do those numbers really mean? The first number represents the type of product. For example, a zero indicates regular UPC codes, a three means that it is an item that needs to be weighed at the store, and a four is used for drug and health type items. The next five numbers are the manufacturer's identification number. This is assigned to the manufacturer or the distributor of the item by the UCC Council, the organization that coordinates barcode standards. The next five numbers are the manufacturer's or distributor's item number for that individual product and is assigned by the manufacturer or distributor. The last number, called the check digit, is the most interesting number of the barcode. It is gotten by a calculation using the other eleven numbers of the code. For example, the UPC barcode pictured with this article is 073435000068. We can determine what the 8 represents by the following: First the numbers that are in the odd positions are added together. In this example 0 + 3 + 3 + 0 + 0 + 6 = 12. The sum is then multiplied by three, 12 x 3 = 36. Then the numbers that are in the even positions are added together. In this example 7 + 4 + 5 + 0 + 0 = 16. The two numbers are then added together. In this example 36 + 16 = 52. Then we determine what number when added to 52 becomes a multiple of ten. In this case 52 + 8 = 60, where 60 is the multiple of ten and 8 becomes the last digit in the barcode. Every time a barcode if read, the scanner performs this calculation to make sure the item is scanned correctly. Now that you know what those UPC barcode numbers really mean, you can disregard any future emails from well meaning associates regarding UPC barcodes.

How does a bar code reader work in reading a bar code?

A barcode reader works by directing a laser across the bar code and measuring the amount of light that is reflected back to its photosensors. A scanner, imager or reader will act just like any other input device for your computer. When the cursor is in the field on any application or form that you will be using and an item is scanned, the data will enter the field exactly as if someone was typing the data into the field. There is no additional software that is needed to load for this to work. The only set up may be required would be to initialize the scanner by scanning the corresponding barcodes that are in the user manual. In a store each barcode represents a certain item that is for sale. The scanner knows which barcode is which, so it can read the item for the price or other features of the item.

What do the lines on a bar code mean?

As your in the Shopping section Ill explain the UPC barcode as its the most common A bar code is a product descriptor code created to be read by a computerised scanner or EPOS machine ( a till). It consists of 11 numbers in groups of "0"s, the black strips and "1"s are the white strips. Tis is the format computers use - BINARY. A The first number describes the type of product. Most products begin with a "0"; exceptions are variable weight products such as meat, cheese and vegetables (2), health-care products (3), bulk-discounted goods (4), and coupons (5). The number 1 is never used as the scanner (a laser) could mistake it for a black bar - a 0 The next five numbers are the product's manufacturer. These are registered internationally to make the manufacture code unique. The next five numbers after that describe the product itself, including its color, weight, size, and other distinguishing characteristics. The code does not include the price of the item or any taxes to be added. When the identifying code is read, the information is sent to the store's computer database, this is frequesntly called the back office system, which checks it against a price list and returns the price to the cash register. The last number is a check digit, which tells the scanner if there is an error in the other numbers. The preceding numbers, when added, multiplied, and subtracted in a certain way will equal this number. If they do not, a mistake exists somewhere. Complicted at first but once you look at the codes on your food you will soon understand. You will also see a in many codes now that they have become 14 charectors. This is because a 3 digit code as been added to the existing product information . GS1 Prefixes do not provide identification of country of origin for a given product. They simply provide number capacity to different countries for assignment from that location to companies who apply. Those companies in turn may manufacture products anywhere in the world. lines on a bar code are almost like encrypted files, they can only be read or detected through a special device. This allows a computer (cash register) to acknowledge an item and decodes the price.

What is the relationship between the bar code lines and the numbers underneath?

Each type of barcode with fat and thin bars (UPC & code128 for example) use an algorithm to calculate the bars that represent the underlying digits. Many barcodes include checksum bars to help with possible errors when reading the bars. Code 3 of 9 barcode font (see related link), uses a set of bars for each digit 0-9, as well as each letter of the alphabet and a few symbol characters. The US Post Office's POSTNET font is one of the few that I know of that is even close to human readable. It reads like this: a tall bar represents a 1 and a short bar represents a 0. The very first bar and very last bar are called frame bars and have no value. So starting with the second bar, each group of 5 bars represents a digit 0-9. Within each group of 5 bars, the bars have the following place values: 7,4,2,1,0. By using this, rather than straight binary (8,4,2,1,0), you get the following rule: Each group of 5 will have 2 tall bars and 3 short bars. This provides kindof an error check against misprinted bars. Example, to represent a one: ...|| would be (1 times 1 plus 1 times 0). Here are the digits 1-9: ...|| ..|.| ..||. .|..| .|.|. .||.. |...| |..|. |.|.. For zero(0) this set of bars is used: ||... (it adds up to 11, but the barcode readers know that this means zero, and it's the only other way to use 2 tall bars. The last digit represented by the last set of 5-bars in the string of digits, is a checksum digit. All the digits are added up, and then the checksum digit is the number required to make the total sum of digits equal a multiple of 10. So if the digits add up to 32, the checksum digit will be an 8.

What is the number of bar code combinations?

Assuming you mean the 13 digit bar code and by "combinations" the mathematical permutations, then there are 10 12 different bar codes - the 13 th digit is a check digit based on the other 12. On the 8 digit bar code there are 10 7 different bar codes - the 8 th digit is a check digit based on the other 7. . "Combination" has a specific meaning in maths: Permutations are sets arranged in order whereas Combinations are sets where order does not matter. So for the six sets: {1, 2, 3}, {2, 3, 1}, {3, 1, 2}, {1, 3, 2}, {2, 1, 3}, {3, 2 1} they are different permutations of the digits 1, 2 & 3 (as the order changes each time) but the same combination (as each set contains one 1, one 2 and one 3 in some order). The same is true of the six numbers: 123, 231, 312, 132, 213, 321 They are different permutations of the three digits 1, 2 & 3 but the same combination of them - each number contains one 1, one 2 and one 3.
