Bar Code Numbering
Bar code numbering is used on many
types of applications to code and decode information automatically.
It is a very accurate way of reading data quickly. It is also a way
of adding security to identification type products. Bar codes are
used on products such as, ID cards, membership cards, access control
badges, visitor passes, season tickets, and other type of cards that
need to be coded with information pertaining to the card holder. When
the card is run through a card reader, it can instantly access information
to help verify authorized use of the card. Bar codes should be used
along with other security features because they can be duplicated
on copiers or produced by software that is readily available and then
printed on a standard printer. See Bar
Coding for more information on bar codes.
