TSC Barcode Label Printing Machine Qualifies for the Testing and Certification of GS1 Barcodes

Taipei, Taiwan – August 12, 2013 – TSC Auto ID Technology Co., Ltd. (TSC), a leading innovator in the design and manufacturing of thermal barcode printer technologies undertook the GS1 Taiwan two-dimensional barcode tests in July. The company offers 11 models, including Data Matrix, QR code, GS1 Databar and all were tested on 88 different labels. All the samples were found to be in compliance with the international standards testing requirements.

Validated models include desktop model TDP-247 series (TDP-345), TTP-225 series (TTP-323), TTP-243 Pro series (TTP-342 Pro), TA200 series (TA300), TTP-245C series (TTP-343C), TTP-247 series (TTP-345), and industrial-type models ME240 series (ME340), TTP-2410M Pro series (TTP-644M Pro, TTP-344M Pro), TTP-268M series (TTP -366M), and TTP-384M.

The GS1 Taiwan two-dimensional barcode test provides quality verification of two-dimensional GS1 barcodes in accordance with international ISO standard IEC 15415. The test parameters include light source, printing quality, etc. and testing is done using sophisticated measuring instruments and proper control standards.

The growing popularity of smartphones promotes the creative development of two-dimensional barcode which is very similar to the widely used one-dimensional code used in commercial applications in the high tech, medical, logistics, wholesale and retail industries. The quality of the barcode label printing is vital to ensure readability.

The TSC Auto ID Technology products, at desktop entry-level or in the high-performance industrial-type models, are stable, durable and in compliance with the basic product design principles. TSC Auto ID Technology successfully passed 18 of the ISO IEC 15415 two-dimensional barcode quality tests. The printed labels have large data storage capacity, are secure and easily readable.

Since last year GS1 Taiwan has been promoting two-dimensional barcode testing services, which comply with international ISO standards and all GS1 barcode requirements for two-dimensional barcode verification. We hope to achieve fair, objective and technically correct verification of all the two-dimensional barcodes symbols used everywhere and continue to assist the domestic barcode equipment suppliers to provide the best quality products.
