Whether you are a professional installer of electronic systems or simply have lots of wiring in your home, if you have a local area network, a computer, multiple telephone wires, entertainment system wires or anything else that requires numerous wires, you need a heavy duty label printer. For the professional installer, this is a must-have tool for the job. But, even in homes, it only makes good sense to label wiring for future identification.

RHINO 5200For the professional working with wiring, the RhinoPRO 5200 Portable Label Printer is affordable and is sure to increase your profits. Used for creating easy to read, durable markings for wires, cables, racks, enclosures, patch panels, switches, IT equipment, outlets and switch plates, it saves time in debugging problems and in servicing your installations. This device even has 'hot keys' for commonly used terminology and has special symbol capability for ohms and other electronic symbology.

This sturdy and resistant printer is powered by 6 AA batteries, is fully portable and works anywhere. It even has a back-lit display for working in areas where light is at a minimum. The printed label is smear-proof and permanent and is guaranteed not to fade over time even if exposed to sunlight, moisture, heat or solvents. To make it more convenient, a hard plastic case stores all the supplies you need along with the actual label maker.

Dymo RhinoPRO 1000 label printerFor use in the home, you might want to choose the Dymo RhinoPRO 1000 handheld label printer. It is just as easy to use as the RhinoPRO 5200, but is more affordable and has hot keys to make labeling as easy as the touch of a button. It is perfect for marking those wires for home entertainment systems, computers, circuit panels, drawers, storage containers, file folders and so many other uses.

With so many electronics in the home today, like closed circuit TV security cameras, multiple line telephones, computers with multiple peripherals, in-home LAN networks, and more, it only makes sense to install wiring so that you can identify the wires should something need to be disassembled for repair and then reinstalled. Nothing is as frustrating as attempting to figure out where a wire should connect by having to follow the wire through a huge bundle of wiring, perhaps identifying it incorrectly. By using a label maker to mark both ends of each wire, you'll never wonder again!

Both professionals and home users will appreciate the time saved and aggravation avoided when every wire, switch, connection, and other hard to identify items are clearly and legibly labeled with permanent, smudge-proof markings made by a label printer. The labels will not fade even if heat, cold, moisture, grease or other harsh substances contact the identifying markings.

You can select printers for labels that accept different size labeling strips so you have the right fit for every application. Many even print in different languages. These handy devices are a necessity for the home or business that wants to save time when dealing with wiring of any type.
