Robust portable label printer for custom labelling

RS Components has introduced a new high-end thermal-transfer label printer that has been designed for quick and efficient customised identification of wires, cables and components.

The new BMP61 label printer from Brady is a highly useful tool for those working in market sectors that use a sizeable amount of cables that require labelling, such as the electrical, power, telecom and ICT industries.

The printer targets installers, field technicians, maintenance technicians, site managers and electrical contractors, as well as workers in cabling, control panel and switchgear manufacturing or cable harness assembly. Using high-performance materials that can handle the toughest industrial identification applications, the printer is both fast and portable, making it suitable for use on site or in the field.

The printer is capable of high-performance printing on a wide range of durable labels, and is more than capable of handling a range of identification challenges due to its wireless connectivity. It is particularly suitable for applications such as the identification of outdoor cables of various sizes and main electrical components in the field or within facilities. In addition, it can be used to replace engraved plates that identify components with printable labels that are virtually identical to engraved plates.

Also available from RS are consumables and labels for the BMP61, including: engraved plate alternative labels in a range of sizes and personalised custom labels that can be ordered from a wide choice of personalisation options, including layout, shape, colour or logos. These labels can then be finalised using the BMP61 in the field by adding options such as serialisation code, barcode, number or text.

A little thought on magnetics can save a lot of energy
Electromagnetic components like transformers and chokes are considered unglamorous, so frequently insufficient thought is given to their selection. Engineers will often simply re-use a device or even a power supply from a previous project, ignoring the fact that new and better components are available, allowing them to save weight, improve efficiency or reduce size. This article reviews some recent developments that are creating new optimised solutions across a range of applications.
