Figure 1 shows some representative examples of 2D barcodes that have been released and frequently used: (a) the quick response (QR) code, (b) DataMatrix, and (c) PDF417 In different forms, all of them show a 2D barcode generated from the same information, the message "123456789" Among them, PDF417 is stack barcode, whereas the QR code and DataMatrix are based on the matrix method.
The software contains hundreds of pipe marker templates and allows users to create custom pipe markers; add QR, DataMatrix and bar codes for maintenance record access; and add text, sequence numbers, company logo, or symbols to help enhance communication on any pipe marker, tag or label.
