$margin

$version A 1 to 40 integer. You can make the qr code contain more data by increasing this parameter

$eclevel Error correction level. there are 4 values: QR_ECLEVEL_L, QR_ECLEVEL_M, QR_ECLEVEL_Q, QR_ECLEVEL_H. This value indicates the ability of qr code error correction. For example, if the QR_ECLEVEL_H(the highest level) is set, if less than 30% of the area of the qr code is damaged, it can still be recognized and all the data in this qr can be restored

For more information about version and error correction level, please visit the wikipedia page
