UPC-E Valid Character Set

The UPC-E barcode is often used on products with a small labeling field that a full UPC-A barcode, whose image size is larger than the labeling field, is not suitable. The UPC-E barcode symbol is compressed from the UPC-A barcode symbology. It compresses out extra zeros of the UPC-A, and has about half size as the later one.

An UPC-E symbol is a fixed length barcode and only encodes 6 digits. UPC-E barcode only encodes numeric characters from 0 through 9:

UPC-E Character Set: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

UPC-E Barcode Symbol Components

If encoding the numeric string "123456" into an UPC-E symbol, it looks like the following image:



An UPC-E barcode symbology is made up of three fields from the left to right:

1. System number, a single digit at the left side of the UPC-E symbol. The first digit "0" in the above UPC-E image

2. Manufacturer code & Product code, the digits "123456" in the above UPC-E image. In UPC-E barcode symbol, the encoded six digits, converted from the five digits of manufacturer code and the five digits of product code in UPC-A, represents the manufacturer code and product code.
