Wago Corporation: Thermal transfer printer
Able to print 100 terminal block markers in 10.7 seconds, Wago’s new Thermal Transfer smartPRINTER marks WMB markers, exclusive Continuous Marking Strips, wire/cable markers, push-button plates, and adhesive labels.
BySmartPRINTER is compatible with the company’s exclusive Continuous Marking Strips to reduce marking time up to 50% compared to traditional marker cards. One continuous marking strip reel marks up to 9,615 terminal block labels eliminating repetitive marker card installation/removal, marking tag separation, and waste.
Within 15.5 seconds, markers for 25 terminal blocks can be printed and installed. In addition, WAGO-Exclusive Multi-Line Marking creates up to three lines of text per terminal block for greater wiring accuracy.The Ethernet-ready smartPRINTER is integrated with Wago’s free ProServe Design and Engineering software. This provides markings for virtually all of the company’s 25,000+ automation, electronic interface, and electrical interconnect products. Markings are highly legible, have no drying time, and are both wipe- and scratch-proof (per DIN EN 60068). SmartPRINTER does not require support plates for different marking materials because it prints directly on continuous tag- or label-style reels. Just 4.4 lbs. and 6.9’-in. long, smartPRINTER is easy to transport and fits on most worktables or desktops.
