The basic requirements are, these also serve as a guide to setting up the device when you receive it. Normally there is a setup card or book to guide you thru the setup.

  • Ability to set the length of the interleaved 2 of 5 bar code to 10.
  • Ability to set the "DO NOT TRANSMIT" the check digit.
  • Ability to set the termination character to nothing.
