BS ISO IEC 19762-2 pdf download Information technology — Automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) techniques — Harmonized vocabulary Part 2: Optically readable media (ORM)
This part of lSO/EC 19762 provides terms and definitions unique to optically readable media (ORM) in thearea of automatic identification and data capture techniques. This glossary of terms enables thecommunication between non-specialist users and specialists in ORM through a common understanding ofbasic and advanced concepts.
2Classification of entries
The numbering system employed within lSO/IEC 19762 is in the format nn.nn.nnn, in which the first twonumbers (nn.nn.nnn) represent the “Top Level” reflecting whether the term is related to 01 = common to allAIDC techniques,02 = common to all optically readable media,03 = linear bar code symbols,04 = two-dimensional symbols,05 = radio frequency identification, 06 = general terms relating to radio, 07 = real timelocating systems,and 08 = MIM.The second two numbers (nn.nn.nnn) represent the “Mid LevelT reflectingwhether the term is related to 01 = basic concepts/data,02 = technical features，03 = symbology,04 =hardware, and 05 = applications. The third two or three numbers (nn.nn.nnn) represent the “Fine” reflecting asequence of terms.
The numbering in this part of lSO/IEC 19762 employs“Top LeveT” numbers (nn.nn.nnn) of 02,03, and 04.
3Terms and definitions
optically readable mediumORM
member of the set of automatic identification techniques such as a linear bar code,two-dimensional, marksense, or optical character recognition (OCR) symbols, that are illuminated by a light source and examined byan optical detector that converts the received reflectance into electrical signals that are grouped in apredetermined method, recognized by the reader and converted into the corresponding computer code
standard means of representing data in optically machine readable form
NOTE Each symbology specification sets out its particular rules of composition or symbol architecture.02.01.03
bar code symbol
combination of symbol characters and features required by a particular symbology which together form acomplete scannable entity
structure of a bar code symbol
NOTE See symbology.
dark element corresponding to a region of a scan reflectance profile below the global threshold
area free from interfering markings which must surround a bar code symbol and, in particular, precede the start character and follow the stop character
physical representation of the codeword as a pattern of dark and light elements
NOTE There may be no direct one-to-one mapping between symbol character and data character or auxiliary character. Decoding through the compaction rules is necessary to identify the data.
coded character set
set of single characters that are mapped onto their byte values according to a linear bar code or two dimensional symbology
bar code character See
specified width of the narrow elements in a bar code symbol or the specified width of a single element in a two-dimensional symbol
