Code 16K Barcode
This Symbology is also known as Code16K
Code 16K was developed by Ted Williams in 1989 to provide a
simple to print and decode multiple row symbology. Williams also developed Code
128, and the structure of 16K is based on Code 128. The code is a continuous,
variable-length symbology that can encode the complete ASCII 128-character set.
It is mainly used in the health care industry.
This symbology has six modes 0 through 5, but Barcode
Professional products only supports the Modes 0, 1, and 2.
