                            This page provides some guideline about the GS1 barcodes and which one of our components can be used to generate them. 

                            GS1 Databar

                            GS1 is a set of barcode symbologies that was formerly named RSS. Look for RSS in our download page. If you want to try the generation of GS1 Databars.

                            The following table shows the old and new names of the symbologies:

                            former RSS name current GS1 Name
                            RSS-14 GS1 Databar Omnidirectional

                            GS1 Databar Omnidirectional (RSS-14) encodes a 14-digit EAN.UCC item identification. It can be can be scanned omnidirectionally by point-of-sale scanners.

                            RSS-14 truncated GS1 Databar Truncated

                            This is the regular GS1 Databar, except its height is reduced to a 13X. It is small for small items.

                            RSS-14 Stacked GS1 Databar Stacked

                            The stacked version is a GS1 Databar truncated two-row barcode.

                            RSS-14 Stacked Omnidirectional GS1 Databar Stacked Omnidirectional

                            GS1 Databar Stacked Omnidirectional (RSS-14 Stacked) is a variation of the regular symbology that is stacked in two rows. This is used when the regular GS1 Databar barcode is too wide.

                            RSS Limited GS1 Databar Limited

                            The limited symbology encodes a 14-digit EAN.UCC item identification with Indicator digits of zero or one .

                            RSS Expanded GS1 Databar Expanded

                            The expanded version encodes the EAN.UCC item identification and  supplementary application identifier elements. It can encode 74 numeric or 41 alphabetic characters.

                            RSS Expanded Stacked GS1 Databar Expanded Stacked

                            Stacked version of the expanded barcode.


                            The following Java code shows how to create a GS1 Databar stacked omnidirectional:
