LONG BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 29, 2014 – Epson America today announced that it will be demonstrating its all-new smartphone and tablet based datacom and cable labeling solution at BICSI 2014 (booth #405) in Anaheim, Calif., September 29-October 1, 2014 during exhibit hours. The solution consists of Epson’s new Datacom and Cable Labeling mobile app printing to Epson’s LabelWorks LW-600P, a Bluetooth label printer. Epson’s Datacom and Cable labeling app will enable users to create labels for new and existing networking installations from the convenience of their mobile device.
Designed to get the job done quickly, the Epson Datacom and Cable Labeling app will come preloaded with label templates for patch panel, cable wrap, faceplate, and cable flag labels. All app-based label templates will support the TIA-606-B industry labeling standard, providing a convenient way for users to align the labeling of their network hardware to the specification.
Used in conjunction with the app, Epson’s LW-600P will provide unmatched portability, flexibility and affordability. Utilizing Bluetooth connectivity and AA batteries [AC adapter also included], the LW-600P enables wireless printing of durable adhesive labels in tape widths of 6mm (~1/4”), 9mm (~3/8”), 12mm (~1/2”), 18mm (~3/4”) and 24mm (~1”). The printer can fit easily in a toolbox or a briefcase and comes with an automatic cutter that reduces waste and saves money.
“Epson is introducing a significantly easier and intuitive way to create, preview and print labels for patch panels, cables and face plates,” said Anna Jen, director, New Ventures/New Products for Epson America. “Simply launch the Epson datacom and cable mobile app, select the type of label desired such as patch panel or cable wrap, enter the desired text or TIA-606 configuration settings and hit print.”
