EntomoLabels 7.7.02 released

In version 7.7.02 the ability to import graphics (CSV) has been added and the functionality of the code has been improved.

Work on the EntomoLabels Manual has been completed! You can download Revision 1 from the download section. Thank you Mike Gould for your patience and big contribution work to the preparation of the Manual.

QRcode in EntomoLabels

A QR code uses four standardized encoding modes (numeric, alphanumeric, byte/binary, and kanji) to store data efficiently. It enables encoding of kanji / kana characters, hence it is popular in Japan. In addition, it allows you to encode characters that belong to the Arabic, Greek, Hebrew or Cyrillic alphabet as well as other symbols specified by the user.

QR Code is available in two versions: basic (Model 1) and extended (Model 2), which allows you to encode up to 7089 numerical characters, 4296 alphanumeric characters, 1817 Kanji characters, 2953 eight-bit binary data or 984 UTF-8 characters.

DataMatrix barcode in EntomoLabels

You can use DataMatrix barcode in your labels. The maximum capacity of a DataMatrix is defined according to the standard by:

  • the symbol size: number of rows and columns of dots
  • the data type: numeric or alphanumeric
  • in this code you can include a full, extended ASCII character set, the code also allows you to encode Arabic, Greek, Hebrew and Cyrillic characters
  • six coding schemes selected in such a way that the resulting code is as small as possible (one optimal code is selected)
  • up to 2335 alphanumeric characters, 1556 eight-bit characters or 3116 numeric characters can be encoded

Check if your printer prints accurately enough for the code reader to read a small code.
