In the electronics and pharmaceutical industry, the most used 2D barcode formats are DataMatrix and PDF417 which usually contain ANSI MH10.8.2 data encoded with the ISO/IEC 15434 standard, meaning that they may include non-printable ASCII characters.

By default Barcode to PC tries to guess the format of the barcode and then decode it.   This may be a good thing if you’re using multiple barcode formats, but it may result in a slow scan time and wrong barcode reading in certain conditions.
