The Boca printers FGL24/44 and were  can support two dimensional (2D) bar codes. There are four 2D barcode types currently supported.  They are:


1.    PDF 417 – Portable Data File

2.    DTM – Data Matrix

3.    QR – Quick Response (26/46 printer only)

4.    AZ – Aztec (26/46 printer only)


To print the 2D bar codes it is necessary for the printer to have a version of firmware and resident font files that are new enough.


Below is a table showing the minimum firmware version needed for each feature.  These version number apply to both 26/46 Lemur models.
