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 (such as a TruCheck Optima or TruCheck Omni), 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. For 1D verifiers, such as the TruCheck Laser USB, only a “1D Calibration Card” can be used.
The Webscan Calibration Card (part number 5136 below) contains both types of calibration target symbols and can be used to calibrate either type of verifier. The calibration target symbols on the Webscan Calibration Card are “Master” Symbols, similar to the master symbols on the GS1 UPC/EAN Card and GS1 Data Matrix Card. The Webscan Calibration Card can be used to calibrate and check your calibration values (Rmax and Rmin).
However, the Webscan calibration card does not contain “Conformance Test Symbols” which are barcodes produced with intentional defects that give lower than perfect grades. The GS1 Data Matrix calibration card contains Data Matrix symbols with intentional imperfections that you can measure with the verifier to check the reporting capabilities of the verifier and to document conformance to industry standards such as ISO/IEC 15415 and ISO/IEC 15426-2 and GS1 specifications. The GS1 UPC/EAN Card contains UPC/EAN symbols that contain intentional imperfections that you can measure with the verifier to check the reporting capabilities of the verifier and to document conformance to industry standards such as ISO/IEC 15416.
Other industry standard calibration cards (not shown beloe) with linear barcode conformance tests are available. Call for more information.

Currently, all 1D (Linear) GS1 calibration cards are out of stock and discontinued.
|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. (In stock)||$600|
|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 barcode verifier, both 1D and 2D (except a 20 MIL aperture Laser verifier). 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. (In stock)||$149|
|GS1-UPC/EAN Calibration card. Can be used to calibrate any Webscan system, including 1D and 2D. (Linear barcode 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. (Out of stock and Discontinued)||
$489 (Call for Info)
|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. (Out of stock and Discontinued)||
$489 (Call for Info)
|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. (Out of stock and Discontinued)||$489 (Call for Info)
