A Plethora of Powerful features for the Professional of Today

We Guarantee to Have the Best Price
BR-PT-E500

What's special about this handheld labeler?

  • Wireless functionality allows a direct connection with Windows®, iOS®, and Android® PCs, cell phones, and tablets for printing labels from those devices
  • Automatic font sizing, speedy printing and automatic cutting ensure high efficiency for large jobs
  • Application keys make common jobs a breeze (general, cable wrap, faceplate, heat shrink, cable flag, patch panel, punch block)
  • Labels may be printed from a database on your device to reduce human error
  • Prints a variety of common barcode types for easy automation
  • Layout is designed to be so simple that you probably won’t even need the manual, which is rare in even much less powerful printers

These days, there are probably smartphone apps that could babysit children, but most people wouldn't use them simply because that would require leaving the phone at home! Jokes aside, mobile device integration is certainly an important feature and the PT-550W delivers. Download the mobile app for your smartphone/tablet or the PC app for your laptop and you get the wireless connectivity you need to print from your database or other mobile device-bound source. This is great for achieving faster & more accurate file/range selection, as if its 30mm/s printing speed and auto-cutting weren't fast enough. This printer is able to handle the largest and most complex jobs out there without breaking a sweat.

*Also available in non-wireless, USB connective PT-500 model. Lack of wireless connectivity is the only difference between the two.
