DataMatrix Code

Due to its small size and large storage capacity, the Data Matrix code is most frequently used in the aerospace, automotive, and electronics sectors. Applied through permanent marking, the code can identify spare parts over their whole lifespan. It also has applications in healthcare and postal services.

  • 2D barcode with L-shaped border and pixel matrix.
  • Defined in the ISO/IEC 16022 standard.
  • Stores up to 3116 numeric or 2335 alphanumeric characters.
  • Smallest size: 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm, thus ideal for small units.
  • Often engraved on items via Direct Part Marking (DPM).
  • Readable even with low contrast.
