Symbologies: ITF-14

 

ITF-14 formally known as Interleaved 2 of 5
ITF-14 is a popular barcode used by shipping industries, warehouses, and in the medical field. ITF-14 is a very unique because the widths of the spaces and bars vary. The bars and the spaces are interleaved: the odd-numbered digits are represented by the bars and the even ones by spaces. This means that this barcode can hold a lot of information.

ITF-14 is a variable length, even numbered, numeric bar code symbol. It is typically used in industrial and master carton labeling. The symbology uses bars to represent the first character and the interleaved (white) spaces to represent the second character. Each character has two wide elements and three narrow elements.

A modulo 10 check character can be used to enhance data security for ITF-14 symbols. When this option is selected, the last digit of the symbol is assumed to be the check digit, and it is compared to a calculated check digit to verify the symbol.
