Conformance Calibration Standard for GS1-Databar (AI-CCS-DATABAR)




Default Calibration Aperture: Unless otherwise specified, this card is calibrated with a 150µm (0.006′) aperture.

Nominal X dimension: 8.33mm

Substrate Size/Overall size: 216mm x 152mm (8.5 x 6 inches)

Substrate Type: White photo paper bonded to a rigid, flat black plastic board. Typical thickness is 2.5mm (0.1′).

Image Forming Material: Photo-Emulsion

Image Description: The topmost three symbols have all parameters made to Grade 4(A). The top three symbol types are: – GS-1 Databar Expanded Master Grade – GS-1 Databar Limited Master Grade – GS-1 Databar Omnidirectional Master Grade

The last three symbols are GS-1 Databar Omnidirectional Master Grade; – Grade 2(C) Defects, Void – Grade 2(C) Low Decodability – Grade 2(C) Contrast

The Defects, Void symbol tests the Defect parameter by incorporating a precise void in one of the large bars and reducing the ISO/ANSI Defect grade to 2(C).

The Low Decodability symbol tests the Decodability parameter by manipulating bar and space sizes to reduce the ISO/ANSI Defect grade to 2(C).

The bottom symbol tests symbol contrast by placing dark gray bars on a gray background and reducing the contrast to Grade 2(C).

Image Contrast / Density:The first 5 symbols are high contrast (Grade 4(A) or near Grade 4(A) contrast, depending on scanning aperture size). The last symbol is a dark gray on gray test of Grade 2(C) contrast.
