GS1 DataBar is the collective name for a family of 7 compact linear barcodes.
This information is encoded using Application Identifiers.
This type of barcode is mainly used for two applications:
- for coupons: in this case, a GCN, along with the value of the coupon, is encoded in the barcode
- for weighed items that are scanned at the POS: the GTIN, together with the net weight, is encoded in the barcode
The minimum dimensions for a GS1 DataBar Expanded (Stacked) on a coupon are:
|DataBar Expanded||0,9 cm||6 cm||0,264 mm|
|DataBar Expanded Stacked||1,9 cm||4 cm||0,264 mm|
