Design and print labels on site with a smartphone

Home Engineering Electrical Design and print labels on site with a smartphone

BRADY Corporation’s new M211 label printer is a lightweight, sturdy and wearable device that prints both pre-sized and continuous labels to identify cables and components. It can create complex labels that can all be designed, printed and previewed from a smartphone.

The new M211 Label Printer can be clipped to any belt. It connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and is driven by Brady’s express labels app. Using the app, labels can be quickly designed, previewed and printed, integrating data from spreadsheets, when required.

These phone-driven label printing design possibilities are unmatched. In addition, designs can be saved and shared between colleagues, either in the field or at the office.

Tested, quality labels

Unique for an entry-level portable label printer, is the M211’s ability to print on both continuous and pre-sized labels. Brady offers M211 users more than 90 different label cartridges from which to choose. These include general purpose and dedicated labels, designed for reliability in specific applications. The company has technical data sheets with label test results that evaluate adhesion to various types of flat and curved surfaces, as well as label print resistance to humidity, abrasion, heat, cold, weathering and other influences.

Resilient and easy to use

The new M211 Label Printer prints up to 300 labels on a single battery charge. Yet the system weighs only 0.5 kg and its compact design makes it extremely wearable. It is also a tough device, with tests indicating the tiny printer survives 1.8 m falls, 110 kg crushes and military specification shocks. Along with its ability to survive almost any job site, the printer features ‘drop-lock-print’ label cartridges designed for swift ‘on-the-job’ consumable switching.
