Code 39 Example

Code 39

Unlike other common barcodes, Code 39 can also encode letters, which makes it indispensable in the transportation industry and the industrial sector. A frequent use case is in factory automation in the automotive and electronics industries. In the US, it was standardized and adopted by the Automotive Industry Action Group and is now used as the standard VIN Barcode.

  • One-dimensional barcode that encodes 43 characters: uppercase letters, numeric digits, and a number of special characters
  • It does not contain a check digit, so it is self-checking. Occasionally it contains a modulo 43 check digit.
  • The low data density makes it unsuitable for tiny items
  • Standardized as ANSI MH 10.8 M-1983 and ANSI/AIM BC1/1995

What are Code 39 barcodes used for?

Unlike other standard 1D barcodes, Code 39 can also encode letters, making it indispensable in the industrial sector. A frequent use case is factory automation in the automotive and electronics industries.

Is Code 39 or Code 128 better?

Due to its higher data density, Code 128 is more convenient for smaller items. Additionally, it allows you to store the whole ASCII character set. For use cases that don't require large amounts of complex data to be stored, Code 39 can be preferable, as the lack of a check digit makes it much easier to print.

What is another name for the Code 39 barcode standard?

Code 39 is also known as Alpha39, Code 3 of 9, Code 3/9, Type 39, USS Code 39, or USD-3.
