Issue / Question

Why UPCE and UPCA are sent as 13 chars when AIM ID

Applicable To

All DCS Scanners

Resolution / Answer

AIM label identifiers (as opposed to custom characters you select yourself as with label identifiers) can be included with scanned bar code data. AIM label identifiers consist of three characters as follows:

• A close brace character (ASCII ‘]’), followed by...
• A code character (Refer to Code Character in the Scanner Product Reference Guide), followed by...
• A modifier character (The modifier character is symbol dependent Refer to Modifier Character section in Product Reference Guide) .

UPC-A and UPC-E labels are converted to EAN 13 when adding AIM IDs.
