5 Measurement methodology
5.1 General requirements
The measurement methodology defined in this standard is designed to maximize the consistency of both reflectivity and bar and space width measurements of bar code symbols on various substrates. This methodology is also intended to correlate with conditions encountered in bar code scanning hardware.
Measurements shall be made with a single light wavelength and a measurement aperture of a diameter defined by the application specification or determined in accordance with 5.2.1 and 5.2.2.
Whenever possible, measurements shall be made on the bar code symbol in its final configuration, i.e. the configuration in which it is intended to be scanned. If this is impossible, refer to annex D for the method to be used for measuring reflectance for non-opaque substrates.
5.2 Reference reflectivity measurements
Equipment for assessing the quality of bar code symbols in accordance with this standard shall comprise a means of measuring and analysing the variations in the diffuse reflectivity of a bar code symbol on its substrate along a number of scan paths which shall traverse the full width of the symbol including both quiet zones. The basis of this methodology is the measurement of diffuse reflectance from the symbol.
