Our Codabar Font Advantage Package contains TrueType, OpenType, PostScript, PCL, BDF and FON Codabar barcode fonts for support on Windows, Macintosh, UNIX and other operating systems. Custom BDF, FON, AFP, Xerox Metacode, XES and FNT fonts can also be created with the Developer's License.  If you are only interested in TrueType barcode fonts for Windows only, look at our EZ Barcode Font Package for Windows.

This Package is much more than just a few fonts. The Codabar Font Advantage Package contains 12 different font versions in 6 font formats. You also receive font tools, macros and source code to help you integrate the fonts into your application. Implementing solutions with our fonts provides a high level of scalability with operating system, application and printer independence.

Codabar Symbology Information

  • The Codabar bar code symbology is used for various numeric bar coding applications including libraries, blood banks and parcels. Codabar was designed for character self-checking eliminating the requirement for checksum characters.  However, checksum characters in the Codabar barcode are optional and they do maximize data integrity.
  • The symbology of the Codabar character set consists of bar code symbols representing characters 0-9, Letters A to D and the following symbols: -  .  $  /  +.  Additional data can be encoded in the actual choice of Start and stop codes. The letters A, B C and D are used for Start and stop codes. For example, if you want to print the data 2727 in the Codabar barcode font you would print A2727B with the Codabar font selected.

Codabar Font Advantage Package Features

With this package you receive twelve different font versions in six font formats. You also receive font tools, macros and source code to help you integrate the fonts into your application. Details of the Codabar Font Advantage Package are as follows:

  • Easy to use -  our Codabar fonts are easy to use in applications and can be entered directly from the keyboard. All barcodes require a Start and stop character and these can also be entered from the keyboard. For example, to create a barcode that encodes the data "1234" with the Codabar Font, you: (1) select the font from the list of fonts in your application; (2) type the Start character, in this case it is "A"; (3) type the data, in this case it is "1234"; (4) type the stop character, in this case it is "B"; and then change the font back to the default font of your document.
  • Multiple Versions Provided -  the Codabar barcode fonts are scaleable and should be printed at the correct font size to suit your application and scanning equipment. Twelve (12) versions of the Codabar barcode fonts are provided to support human readable versions and different width and height requirements. Fonts beginning with ID-AutomationH are human readable versions with the translation below the barcode. The last characters in the Codabar barcode font name determines the height of the barcode with the shortest being IDAutomatonCBXS and the tallest being IDAutomatonCBXXL. To determine which Codabar barcode font to use, first print out the IDAutomatonCBS barcode font at various font sizes to determine which size is the smallest that will work with your scanning equipment. Then, choose the tallest version that will fit in your scanning area.
  • Industry Standards - the ID-Automation.com, Inc. Codabar barcode fonts have been developed according to Rationalized Codabar standards. Rationalized Codabar is 100% compatible with traditional Codabar and just as secure with the added benefit of higher density. 
  • Tools Provided - to help users integrate barcodes into their applications, we provide font automation tools such as MS Office Macros for Word, Excel and Access, Visual Basic, ANSI C and C++ Source Code, ActiveX DLLs for development platforms that support Microsoft's ActiveX / COM technology, Crystal Reports User Function Libraries (UFLs) and a check digit calculation application with Visual Basic source code. The DLLs, macros, UFLs and code provided automatically format the Start , stop and check characters to the barcode font.
  • Calculated Field Use - Our Codabar fonts can be easily printed or displayed as calculated fields in applications by selecting the font for the field and using the following formula examples to calculate the field:
    • Lotus Notes (Use for Barcoding in forms and views):  "A" + DataField + "B"
    • Lotus Approach:  Combine ('A', DataField, 'B')
    • Lotus 123 for Windows - enter in another cell, text data from cell B4:  ("A"&B4&"B")
    • Lotus 123 for Windows - converts a number in cell B7 to text for barcoding:  ("A"&@STRING(B7,0)&"B")
    • Clarion:  loc:barcode='A'&left(clip(DataField))&'B'
    • Microsoft Access:  =("A"&[DataField] & "B")
    • Microsoft Excel - enter in another cell, text data from cell B2:  =("A"&B2&"B")
  • Multiple Formats Provided - when you purchase a license for this font, you will receive all versions in a single ZIP file. The manual is supplied in a file named "readme" in the ZIP file. The following fonts are included:
    • TrueType fonts are supplied in PC and Macintosh format. The TrueType TTF fonts are compatible with Macintosh OS X and all versions of Microsoft Windows. Macintosh formatted MTT TrueType fonts are compatible with Macintosh System 7.1 and above.
    • OpenType OTF fonts with PostScript outlines are provided. These are compatible with Windows, Macintosh OS X and other systems supporting the OpenType format.
    • PostScript Type 1 fonts are supplied in binary, ASCII and Macintosh Classic MacBinary versions.
    • Also included in this package are PCL, BDF and FON fonts. PCL fonts are supplied in 10, 12, 16 and 24 points.
    • With the purchase of a Developer License and 1 year of support and upgrade protection, we can convert fonts from this package to PCL 4, Xerox Metacode, XES, FNT and AFP. The Developer License also grants you the right to convert our fonts to other formats as necessary including TrueDoc and OpenType.
    • You may also get more information on what font types are provided.

Specifications

The X dimension (X is the width of the narrow bar) is listed below for various point sizes. Our advanced Codabar fonts have been designed to be able to produce dependable and scannable barcodes when printed at large and small point sizes. With a 600 DPI laser printer, the Codabar font can be printed as small as 6 points if the scanner supports reading it. Printed with an HP Laserjet at 600 DPI, we have been able to dependably scan our Codabar font printed at 6 points with the Internec CCD scanner. Excluding the Start and stop characters, you can achieve slightly more than 18 CPI print density when printing at 6 points. Keep in mind though, the Codabar fonts should be printed at 12 points or larger for open systems.

Point Size Approximate X dimension
24 .50 mm .020"
18 .38 mm .015"
12 .25 mm .010"
9 .19 mm .008"
6 .127 mm .005"

Twelve different versions of the Codabar barcode fonts are provided to support human readable versions and different height requirements. Fonts with the letter "H" in the font name are "human readable" versions. The last characters in the Codabar barcode font name determines the height of the barcode, with the shortest being "XS" and the tallest being "XXL". Because each single font can be printed at various point sizes, there are several combinations of heights and widths that can be produced.

Font name of purchased version Font name of eval version* Font height at 12 points*
Codabar Fonts with no text below the barcode:
ID-AutomationCBXS ID-AutomationSCBXS  1/16" (.078") or .2 cm
ID-AutomationCBS ID-AutomationSCBS  1/8" (.125") or .4 cm
ID-AutomationCBM ID-AutomationSCBM  1/4" (.25") or .6 cm
ID-AutomationCBL ID-AutomationSCBL  1/2" (.5") or 1.1 cm
ID-AutomationCBXL ID-AutomationSCBXL  5/8" (.625") or 1.6 cm
ID-AutomationCBXXL ID-AutomationSCBXXL  1"  or 2.5 cm
Codabar Fonts with text below the barcode:
ID-AutomationHCBXS ID-AutomationHSCBXS  1/16" (.078") or .2 cm
ID-AutomationHCBS ID-AutomationHSCBS  1/8" (.125") or .4 cm
ID-AutomationHCBM ID-AutomationHSCBM  1/4" (.25") or .6 cm
ID-AutomationHCBL ID-AutomationHSCBL  1/2" (.5") or 1.1 cm
ID-AutomationHCBXL ID-AutomationHSCBXL  5/8" (.625") or 1.6 cm
ID-AutomationHCBXXL ID-AutomationHSCBXXL  1"  or 2.5 cm
* Measurements are approximate and were measured when printed at 12 points which should work for most scanners. Measurements for Human Readable fonts do not include the text below. At 12 points, the X dimension is about 8 mils. To print at a different height, find the font that has the height closest to what you need and use this formula to find the point size you need to print the font at to get that height:
12 * (height you want) / (height at 12 points) = (point size converted to integer)
For example, if you are using ID-AutomationCBL and you want it to be about .75" tall, you need to print it at 18 points because: 12 * .75 / .5 = 18
