LONG BEACH, Calif. – July 28, 2015 – Epson America today announced the launch of its all-new smartphone and tablet-based Datacom and Cable Labeling solution. The solution includes Epson’s new Datacom and Cable Labeling app and Epson’s Bluetooth®-enabled label printer, the LabelWorks® LW-600P. Together, the app and the highly portable label printer will empower IT professionals and system administrators to create labels for new and existing networking installations from the convenience of a mobile device.
The Epson Datacom and Cable Labeling app is free to download for iOS and Android users and is preloaded with label templates for patch panel, cable wrap, faceplate, and cable flag labels. All app-based label templates 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 utilizes Bluetooth connectivity and AA batteries (AC adapter also included). The LW-600P wirelessly prints 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 equipment bag and comes with an automatic cutter that reduces waste and saves money.
“Epson developed the Datacom and Cable solution for LW-600P because we know that electricians and AV professionals often need a lightweight yet high-volume label maker,” said Anna Jen, director, New Ventures/New Products for Epson America. “The LW-600P is unmatched in portability, flexibility and affordability and allows users to create, preview and print labels for patch panels, cables and face plates. Simply launch the Epson Datacom and Cable mobile app on your mobile or tablet device, 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.”
The Epson Datacom and Cable Labeling app is available to download in the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
