What is a Industrial 2 of 5?

Industrial 2 of 5 is a low-density numeric symbol that has been with us since the 1960s. The barcode is called “2 of 5” due to the fact that digits are encoded with five bars, two of which are always wide (and the remaining three are narrow).

Industrial 2 of 5 is a very simple symbol in that all information is encoded in the width of the bars. The spaces in the barcode exist only to separate the bars themselves.
