The Code 128 barcode is a high-density linear symbology that encodes text, numbers, numerous functions and the entire 128 ASCII character set (from ASCII 0 to ASCII 128.) It is commonly used for several implementations; and is also referred to as ISBT-128, GS1-128, UCC-128, EAN-128 and USS Code 128.

For an FAQ on Code 128 Barcode Standards, please visit:
https://www.idautomation.com/barcode-faq/code-128/#Specifications

It has three major character sets: Code 128 A, Code 128 B, and Code 128 C. A fourth set, Code 128 Auto, is the most efficient and uses a combination of A, B, and C.

Set A encodes numbers 0-9, uppercase A-Z, and control characters, and special characters.

Set B encodes numbers 0-9, uppercase A-Z, lowercase a-z, and special characters.

Set C encodes numeric data and FNC1.
