Save time, reduce errors

By linking to data already stored in Fluke Networks Linkware Live, you can save time over manually entering the same cable ID's into the PT-E550W using the printer's keyboard. Plus mistyped identifiers are a thing of the past - ensuring accuracy in all your labelling tasks,

Print your cable identification labels

As your cable ID's are stored in the printer's memory, all you now need is the PT-E550W.

Simply press the "cable wrap" function key on the PT-E550W label printer and configure the settings for the type of cable you are using. This just needs to be done once.

To print your labels, press the database key on the label printer to display the cable ID's. Then choose to print all labels, or select the range required.

Labels are printed in one long strip. The advanced cutter keeps your labels in order as they print, making them easier to apply correctly.

Brother TZe flexible-ID laminated labels have been developed specifically for cable identification, and are recommended for this use.

Keeping your cable ID labels up-to-date

As your networking infrastructure project is updated, with new cable ID's being added or existing ones changed, simply use the Brother iLink&Label app to re-connect and download the latest cable ID's from your Fluke Networks Linkware Live project to the Brother PT-E550W label printer. Then re-print as needed.
