Interleaved 2 of 5 can be
defined as a two width numeric only high density and
continuous barcode symbology derived from Industrial 2
of 5 barcode font. Interleaved 2 of 5 symbology are
compact barcodes representing every pair of numbers by
one character only.
Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode symbology also known as USS ITF25, SSC-14, I 2 of 5, ITF, I-2of5, ANSI/AIM ITF 25, ANSI/AIM I-2/5,
Uniform Symbology Specification ITF, USS ITF 2/5, I-2/5,
2 of 5 Interleaved and 2/5 Interleaved.

- Start/stop character.
Structure of Interleaved 2 of 5 Barcode
Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode
symbology has following structure components:
1. Leading quiet zone.
2. A start pattern.
3. Interleaved symbols showing data.
4. An elective check digit (calculated
according to mod 10).
5. A stop pattern.
6. A trailing quiet zone.
7. An elective bearer bar pattern
neighboring the complete symbol.
Start character is composed of narrow
bar-narrow space-narrow bar-narrow space and stop
character comprises of wide
bar-narrow space-narrow bar. Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode structure
is a combination of five bars such as two wide bars and
residual three narrow bars, ten two width numeric
characters (00 to 99) and a non-compulsory check digit
(calculated according to modulo 10) with bars at even
locations while spaces at odd places.
