• Bar codes are used for mail sets that are processed in Document Systems. The bar codes tell the system¬†if:

    • The document set is complete
    • The envelope should be sealed
    • Enclosures should be added
    • Etc.

    Barcode can be printed vertically and horizontally. Two types of barcodes are supported, 1D and 2D barcodes (depending on installed licenses).

  • Supported 1D barcodes

    • Code 39
    • Interleaved 2 of 5
    • Minimum line thickness of a bar: 0.25 mm (0.01 inch)
    • The thickness ratio of thick bars versus thin bars: 2.2
    • Minimum width of the barcode: 5 mm (0.2 inch)
    • The white area in the picture shows the limits where the code can be printed

     

  • Note

     Code 128 is not supported. It may work but it is not recommended because it is very sensitive to speed variations.

  • Supported 2D barcodes

  • Position of the code on the document

  • BCR license types

    There are two BCR license types:

    • Basic
    • Advanced
  • BCR basic license

    For the BCR basic license the following functions are available:

    • Page N of M: as long as N is below M, the document set is not complete. As soon as N=M, the set is complete and will be inserted into an envelope.
    • Insert/Accumulate: defines when a document set is complete and must be inserted into an envelope.
    • Customer ID: BCR uses the Customer ID code to complete a set. If the ID changes, the set is inserted. This is only possible with reverse reading.
    At least one basic commands is required. Page N of M can be used in combination with Customer ID as an integrity check.
  • BCR advanced license

    For the BCR advanced license the following functions are available:

    • The basic functions (page N of M, insert/accumulate, Customer ID).
    • Sheet sequence - Every sheet has a number, regardless of the document set it is part of. If a sheet is missing, an error is generated.
    • Group sequence - Every document in a set has the same group number. If one document set is missing, an error is generated.
    • Divert (Divert & Continue) - The set will be diverted and the system continues.
    • Stop (Divert & Stop) - The set will be diverted and the system stops indicating error (FT1-RE1-000 Reading stop - Stop mark read).
    • Selective feed - If the system reads the command, an enclosure from the enclosure feeder is added to the set. This function is printed on the last sheet of a set. It is also possible to add an enclosure from the versaFeeder. 
    • Sealing control - Determines if envelopes are sealed or not.
    • Present on Deck & Continue - The set leaves the system from the upper unit. The system does not stop processing. The envelopes are not sealed.
    • Present on Deck & Stop - The set leaves the system from the upper unit. The system stops. The envelopes are not sealed.
    • Exit selection - Determines if the envelope is transported to stacker or to the side exit.
