This parameter set lengths for D 2 of 5.
The length of a code refers to the number of characters (for example, human-readable characters), including check digit(s) the code contains. Set lengths for D 2 of 5 to any length, one or two discrete lengths, or lengths within a specific range.  The default is
1-55
.
The maximum range is 0-55.
When setting lengths, enter a leading zero for single digit numbers.
Scan one of the following barcodes to select a length option:
• One Discrete Length - Decode only D 2 of 5 symbols containing a selected length.
• Two Discrete Lengths - Decode only D 2 of 5 symbols containing either of two lengths.
• Length Within Range - Decode D 2 of 5 symbols with a specific length range.
• Any Length - Decode D 2 of 5 symbols containing any number of characters within the scanner’s capability.
Due to the construction of the D 2 of 5 symbology, it is possible for a scan line covering only a portion of the code to transmit as a complete scan, yielding less data than is encoded in the barcode. To prevent this, select specific lengths (D 2 of 5 - One Discrete Length, Two Discrete Lengths) for D 2 of 5 applications.
Select lengths using barcodes in Numeric Barcodes. To correct an error or change the selection, scan Cancel.
For example:
• To decode only D 2 of 5 symbols with 14 characters, scan D 2 of 5 - One Discrete Length, and then scan 1, 4.
• To decode only D 2 of 5 symbols containing either 2 or 14 characters, scan D 2 of 5 - Two Discrete Lengths, and then scan 0, 2, 1, 4.
• To decode D 2 of 5 symbols containing between 4 and 12 characters, scan D 2 of 5 - Length Within Range, and then scan 0, 4, 1, 2.
