The P-touch EDGE PT-E550W, from Brother Mobile Solutions, is a wireless industrial handheld labeling tool and is the company’s first such device to feature Wi-Fi connectivity to Windows, iOS, Mac and Android devices—an enhancement designed to expand the contractor’s jobsite capabilities.
With the PT-E550W, users can download and store custom label files and databases from select tablets, smartphones or PCs to print full project labels or individual labels wirelessly, on demand at the jobsite. It prints labels up to 24mm wide, including heat shrink tubing, and is further differentiated by a dual-blade auto-cutter for easy peel label strips. It was engineered from the ground-up to be a powerful alternative to sheet label systems and the labeling tool of choice for larger infrastructure installations.
With built-in templates, files and databases instantly available via wireless connectivity, work crews can help save time, improve accuracy and minimize keystrokes in generating clear, long-lasting labels for wires, cables, faceplates, patch cords and other components of an installation. This model was designed by industry pros to help datacom, telecom, audio visual, electrical and security professionals meet more stringent labeling standards and label even the largest projects faster.
Use for Contractors and Installers
For contractors and installers who prefer to generate pre-printed sheet labels for their projects, the wireless connectivity of the PT-E550W provides the flexibility to handle changes on site in real time. Should changes be required, they can make the as-built changes directly to the database in the PT-E550W or to the same database file used for pre-printing the sheets in the office, and send the file to a computer, smartphone or tablet for printing at the site.
Additional features include:
Fast label printing speeds, up to 30mm per second, coupled with automatic label cutting
Large, backlit LCD display for at-a-glance view of label design settings, with the ability to preview and edit labels before printing
Easy to use QWERTY keyboard, adjustable font sizes, built-in label application keys and label design software and templates makes it intuitive to generate labels with little or no training
Fast, snap-in cartridges and the ability to accept a wide variety of tape colors, sizes and adhesive types, speeds up labeling workflow and team productivity
