Generating Barcodes

There are a number of websites offering free utilities to convert text into Barcodes.

We recommend using https://www.barcoding.com/resources/barcode-generator/

This website will give you a step-by-step guide for generating your barcodes. Alternatively, many office products now come with a Barcode font.

The MM7000’s Barcode reader can read the following codes:

All UPC/EAN/JAN Codes

EAN28 Codes

Code 39, Code 128

Interleave 25

Generate the barcodes, giving each a unique number to enable them to be recognised by EMS.
