Customizing Reports

How to Customize Reports on TruCheck stand-along units

Go to Admin and Press Enter, then to Settings and Press Enter

Print SRP

This will cause a graph, called the Scan Reflectance Profile to be printed out. Note that this graph will be long and take a bit of time to print out. Therefore, it is not usually printed by users on a routine basis, but only when a problem with a bar code is being diagnosed.  The SRP shows the amount of reflected light from all points across the bar code. You will see the spaces with a high level of reflected light and the bars with less. The width between transitions from dark to light represents the widths of bars ad spaces.  For matrix codes this prints an image of the symbol. The default is 0.

Print Ave

Print the average values of each parameter, such as symbol contrast, Modulation, etc. These are averaged over each decoded scan. Default is 1.

Print Bars

The bar and space widths are printed out. The values are in “MILS” (thousandths of an inch or in microns when in Metric mode).  For matrix codes this prints Modulation Values. The default is 0.

Print Grid

Set to 1 to print a letter grade for each parameter for each scan.  Set to 2 to print a list of numerical values for each scan for the parameters that actually have values on a scale of 0 to 100 (namely SC, MOD, DEF, DEC).  Set to 3 to see both.  For 2D codes, this setting does nothing. The default is 1.

Print CWs

Prints a list of codewords for symbologies which have reed-solomon error correction. Codewords that are corrected by error correction are indicated.  The symbologies include: PDF 417, MicroPDF 417, CC-A, CC-B, CC-C, Data Matrix, QR Code, Aztec Code. Default is 0.

Print ECC

Prints details about the UEC parameter, including the error correction budget and the number of error correction codewords used within the general characteristics section of the report. Default is 0.

Print Trad

Prints traditional measurement results such as the traditional element tolerance and traditional measures of symbol contrast: MRD and PCS. For some symbologies which have published traditional element tolerances, these limits will be checked and the number of failed elements reported. Default is 0.

User Information

You can enter any of the following and it will be included in the header of the report:
