MSI Plessey (also known as Modified Plessey) is a barcode symbology developed by the MSI Data Corporation, based on the original Plessey Code symbology. It is a continuous symbology that is not self-checking. MSI is used primarily for inventory control, marking storage containers and shelves in warehouse environments.*

MSI plessey can encode only digits.
Labeljoy requires you to enter a text in the text box of up to 255 digits.

MSI Plessey can optionally encode 1 or 2 check digits: mod 10, mod 10/10, mod 11 and mod 11/10.

Check digits are only appended to the barcode symbol. They are not appended to the human readable text.

Text concatenation:
When a msi plessey barcode element is generated by concatenating fields or counters, the following rules apply:
- The text can contain digits only.
- Code length must not exceed 255 digits.
When a value not complying with the above rules is found, the barcode is not displayed.

The human readable text can also be shown above the symbol or hidden according to the setting specified in the Text combo box.
