Barcode Technology - Interleaved
Hide the description
Interleaved 2 of 5 (also known as
Code 25 Interleaved) is a continuous
two-width barcode symbology
encoding digits. It is used
commercially on 135 film, for
ITF-14 barcodes, and on cartons
of some products, while the
products inside are labeled with
UPC or EAN.
Interleaved 2 of 5 is a special
type of Code 25 that is also a
numeric code able to display
digits from 0 to 9. The code is
also known as Code 2 of 5
Interleaved. It has no built in
check digit. The advantage of
Code 25 Interleaved is that the
code uses self-checking and it
is very compact so it does not
need much space like the simple
Code 25. Code 25 Interleaved is
only valid if there is a even
number of digits. To display an
odd number of digits you have to
add a zero to the beginning (123
becomes 0123) or you may use
your own check digit..
Interleaved 2of5 is one of the many
barcode formats currently in
A Barcode is a method of
representing data in a visual,
The barcode formats has two
One-dimensional (1D) ---
Barcodes represented data by
varying the widths and spacings
of parallel lines.
Two-dimensional (2D) --- Using
rectangles, dots, hexagons and
other geometric patterns to
Interleaved 2of5 is 1D barcode.
Interleaved 2of5 is variable with
no fixed length.
No built in check digit.
Most barcodes display their
corresponding values below them,
which makes it possible to human
read and manually enter
the barcode values into the
equivalent system when the
barcode label is worn out and
cannot be read by the barcode
The Advantages of using
The bar code design and printing
cost are low. Generally
speaking, no matter how they are
used or where they are posted,
the cost is not high. They can
be customized economically, in a
variety of finishes and
The barcode system is very
versatile, it can be used for
any necessary data collection.
This may include pricing or
inventory information or
management information service
system. In addition, because
barcodes can be affixed to
almost any surface, they can be
used not only to track the
product itself, but also to
track the production process,
shipments and equipments.
When barcodes are used in
management information systems,
they can promote better
decision-making. Because data is
obtained quickly and accurately,
you can quickly obtain a full
range of information for the
entire company or organization,
so it is possible to make more
informed decisions. Better
decisions can ultimately save
time and money.
Barcodes are cheap and
user-friendly, providing an
indispensable tool for tracking
data from pricing to inventory.

FAQ About Interleaved 2of5 Barcode
What is the
historical origin of the Interleaved 2of5 barcode?
2of5 barcode is a continuous two-width barcode symbol capable of
encoding an even number of digits. Its predecessor, the standard
or industrial 2of5 barcode, could only encode information in the
width of the bar, not in intervals.
2of5 barcode was invented by Intermec in the United States in
1972. It was widely used in the fields of warehousing and heavy
industry in the early days, and was later also used in the field
of transportation and packaging.
In 1987, Japan
introduced the cross 25 barcode and standardized it for the
identification and management of storage and transportation
units. The EAN specification uses the interleaved 25 barcode as
the standard barcode for storage and transportation units.
Is this encoding
method is still used, but is not very common.
It is mainly used
for 135 film, ITF-14 barcode, and some transport packaging
cartons or wooden boxes, while the products inside the box use
UPC or EAN barcodes.
What industries are
Interleaved 2of5 barcodes mainly used in?
barcodes are mainly used in logistics, warehousing,
transportation, medical and other industries.
of Interleaved 2of5 barcode
2of5 barcode is a barcode symbology that can only encode
numbers. It was developed on the basis of the standard 2of5
barcode to increase data capacity.
It consists of 5
barcode lines (3 black lines and 2 white lines). The barcode
lines are only divided into thickness (thick is 1, thin is 0).
There are only 2
wide bars out of every 5 bars, and the width of the bars and
intervals represent information.
consists of two interleaved numbers, and each number is
represented by 5 barcode lines.
It is necessary
to add a start character and a terminator, as well as a check
The number of
digits in each barcode must be an even number, and "0" is added
in front of the even digits.
Interleaved 2of5 barcodes often use protective frames to prevent
misreading of data caused by incomplete scanning.
What is the
difference between Interleaved 2of5 barcode and Code 128
2of5 barcode can only encode numbers, while the Code 128 barcode
can encode 128 characters such as numbers, letters, and symbols.
The data length
of the Interleaved 2of5 barcode must be an even number of
digits, while the data length of the Code 128 barcode is not
The coding rules
of the Interleaved 2of5 barcode are to represent information
based on the width of the bars and intervals, while the coding
rules of the Code 128 barcode are to represent information based
on three subsets A, B, and C.
What is the
difference between Interleaved 2of5 barcode and EAN-13 barcode?
2of5 barcode can encode information of any length, while the
encoding length of the EAN-13 barcode is a fixed 13 bits.
2of5 barcode is a universal barcode suitable for a variety of
industries, while the EAN-13 barcode is a commodity barcode
mainly used for the identification and management of goods.
What are the
advantages and disadvantages of Interleaved 2of5 barcodes?
The data capacity
is large, the encoding is simple, and information of any length
can be encoded, as long as it is an even number of bits.
logistics, warehousing, transportation, medical and other
2of5 barcode is a higher density barcode. Since both bars and
spaces represent information and there is no barcode character
interval, it is a continuous barcode. Because it can represent
different numbers of numeric characters, it is a non-fixed

contamination and damage.
barcodes are prone to misreading due to information loss. When
the scanning path does not pass through two blank areas, it is
easy to regard the bars and spaces of a barcode symbol as start
characters or terminators, causing information loss or decoding
errors. Therefore, Interleaved 2of5 barcodes are often used to
identify fixed-length characters. At this time, the decoder or
computer only receives fixed-length information. Short data
information can be added with a "0" character at the beginning
to achieve a fixed length.
