What is an Code 93 Barcode?

Date December 8, 2010 Author AM Labels

The Code 93 Barcode symbology is an alphanumeric, variable length symbology, designed by Intermec to improve upon Code 39. Providing a higher density and data security enhancement than Code 39, the Code 93 barcode is capable of encoding 47 characters (compared to the 43 of Code 39) and is also capable of representing all 128 ASCII characters.

The Code 93 barcode is more secure than the Code 39 symbology as it requires two check characters which are referred to as “C” and “K”.

Code 93 is a continuous, variable-length symbology.
