Please note - the Manufacturing and Electronics symbols are not
available on the BarSIMM for HP LaserJet 4 / 4 Plus / 4Si / 4P / 4V
for technical reasons.

Human readable characters

The BarDIMM supports many different styles and position of
human-readable characters including:

6 different typeface styles (Courier, Letter Gothic, Univers,
Univers Condensed, CG Times & OCR-B).

Automatic or user-defined point size.

Regular, Bold, Italic or Bold Italic styles.

Barcode Size

The size of bar codes is fully configurable with the BarDIMM. Height may be
selected via point size from 4 point up to 999 point.

The width of individual elements (bar widths and space widths) is fully
definable in 600 dots to the inch measurements.

All bar codes have default values so can be used straight away.

Error Checking

The BarDIMM has built in error-checking for invalid characters and incorrect
number of digits.

Pricing & Distribution

Please contact us for latest pricing and a detailed quotation. The units are
dispatched from our offices in London, England. Appropriate carriage
charges will be added.

Please note, if you want to use Code 39 or Codabar, a cheaper solution may
be to use a Datascan Custom Eprom DIMM, SIMM or Cartridge - see our main
section on barcodes. If you are using a symbology other than Code 39 or
Codabar and you are willing to do a little programming (following our
worked-through examples), then this may also be a better solution for you.
