GS1 is currently unable to supply Linear Calibration Cards (including UPC/EAN, GS1-128, ITF-14) and therefore these are out-of-stock at both Webscan and GS1. The Webscan Calibration Card can be used in place of the UPC/EAN for calibration purposes. We will update this information as we get updates from GS1. (The GS1 Data Matrix 2D Calibration card is not affected).
Calibration Cards expire after 2 years from the date of issue. Calibration is important for industry standard compliance. If your calibration card is expired, contact Webscan for purchasing information.
Note that for 2D verifiers, you can choose either a “2D Calibration Card” or a “Linear Calibration Card”. Either of them will allow you to calibrate the reflectance levels which is what calibration does. However, only with the GS-1 Data Matrix calibration card (Option #2 below) contains Data Matrix symbols with intentional imperfections that you can measure with the verifier to check the reporting capabilities of the verifier.
To order a new calibration card, please call us at (303) 485-6811 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|GS-1 Data Matrix calibration card. This can be used to calibrate reflectance levels, dimensional measurements for aperture and X dimension and also to measure imperfect data matrix symbols with “known” expected results. Webscan Part Number 4744.||$600|
|GS1-128 Calibration card. Can be used to calibrate Webscan 10 mil Laser systems such as TC-201-10MIL, or TruCheck Laser USB 10 MIL. Conformance test symbols for EAN-128 are included. Webscan Part Number 2633.
Currently out of stock due to GS1 supply issue (see above notice).

|ITF-14 Calibration card. Can be used to calibrate Webscan 20 mil Laser systems such as TC-201-20MIL, or TruCheck Laser USB 20 MIL. Conformance test symbols for ITF-14 are included. Webscan Part Number 2222.Currently out of stock due to GS1 supply issue (see above notice).
Note: As of now, GS1 lists (only) these as in-stock. However, we will not carry them until the overall issue with linear calibration cards is resolved. Please contact GS1 directly if you wish to purchase an ITF-14 card.

|GS1-UPC/EAN Calibration card. Can be used to calibrate any Webscan system, including 1D and 2D. (Linear bar code can be used to calibrate 2D systems because the calibration is adjusting reflectance levels, not anything that relies upon the structure of a 2D symbol.) Conformance test symbols for EAN/UPC are included. Webscan Part Number 1556.Currently out of stock due to GS1 supply issue (see above notice).|| $489

|Webscan Calibration Card. Contains a Master (nearly perfect) Data Matrix symbol and a Master (nearly perfect) UPC-A symbol. This card can be used to calibrate any Webscan bar code verifier, both 1D and 2D. Conformance test symbols are not incorporated into this card, however. For that, you must use one or more of the GS1 cards shown above.Webscan Part Number 5136.||$149|
