Code 128 An alphanumeric barcode which is an industry standard.
The Code 128 barcode is a high-density linear symbology which encodes text, numbers, numerous functions and the entire 128 ASCII character set. (from ASCII 0 to ASCII 128)
Commonly used for several implementations. Including shipping and packaging. ISBT-128, GS1-128, UCC-128, EAN-128 and USS Code 128 are other titles for Code 128
Code 128 is higher in data density than Code 39.. Therefore, we recommend that you label very small items using a Code 128 barcode.
