MSI/Plessey Barcodes

MSI-PLESSEY is a variable length, numeric only, symbology. The symbology is one of the earliest barcode symbologies ever developed and is based on a four bit binary number scheme. Each symbol is framed by a start and a stop pattern and contains a check character that is calculated from the values of each of the encoded data digits. MSI-Plessey is rarely used in anything other than grocery store shelf marking applications. In fact most modern barcode readers do not provide support for reading MSI-Plessey symbols.

"There is not a person I would rather recommend to someone than you. Boy, if every support person was like you, people would have to learn to speak without curse words, the average blood pressure of users/customers would drop significantly, etc.. I'd be more than happy to talk with any potential users (of TALtech software)."
