Data Matrix codes are 2D matrix barcodes most commonly used to mark small items, due to the fact they can encode fifty characters in a symbol that is readable at 2-3mm square, with only a 20% contrast ratio.
Often used to label small electronic components, Data Matrix codes are part of a new traceability drive in many industries. You can create a custom data matrix code that can be used for a wide variety of applications — a data matrix symbol can store up to 2,335 alphanumeric characters and a data size of up to 1556 bytes, making it a truly versatile and reliable option.
Wondering how a data matrix code works? The 2D barcode consists of black and white “cells” or modules that are arranged in a square or rectangular pattern and used to encode text or numeric data. Error correction codes are often used to increase reliability — even if one or more cells are damaged, the message can still be read.
