A multicolored lable is applied to the container to provide the desired information for identification. Each label comprises 13 adhesive color-coded strips arranged vertically. Its overall dimensions are 10 in. wide by 22.5 in. high. Light from a scanner is reflected by the label back along the same incident path with a brightness up to 150 times that of the brightest available paint. The electro-optical components of the scanner function as a receiver and convert the light energy from the lables into electrical analog signals which are applied to the decoder. The decoder unit accommodates the power control and logic circuitry of the system, plus other options as selected by the user.
