Portable label makers feature built-in Bluetooth for wireless printing
16 January 2012
Brady Corporation's BMP51 and BMP53 Label Makers are its first label printers to feature a Bluetooth network card. The labels can now be designed on an Android smartphone, using a Brady Mobile Application, and printed wirelessly. Both come with an optional Wi-Fi card to provide wireless printing options. The only difference between the two is that the BMP51 is the stand alone version that features an LCD screen and a QWERTY keyboard to allow a more traditional approach to label design.
Brady Mobile allows field workers to print labels ‘on the go’ from their Android smartphone, without the need to carry a laptop or any other device. It is designed for easy creation of label templates, and includes a bar coding feature plus a wide variety of symbols and pictograms.
Another new feature is the easy-to-load cartridge, which contains both the label material and ribbon so that they can run out at the same time. Both models also offer a smart cell technology that allows the printer to automatically select the format of the label that corresponds to the chosen material.
In addition to the cartridge design, both label makers also offer a durable built-in cutter, high speed print and USB PC connectivity for advanced label design with Brady’s LabelMark labelling software. There are a number of power supply options to suit any preference. Use either label maker with AA batteries, AC power supply, or a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
