Magnet continually enhances its extensive range of electrical equipment, industrial instrumentation and automation systems, to meet exact market requirements.
“The Magnet team is committed to helping our customers create and maintain a safer work environment and to comply with regulatory standards,” says Brian Howarth, managing director, Magnet Group. “It is critical in the workplace – particularly in harsh, potentially hazardous environments – that all products, components and materials are clearly labelled, for easy identification.
“For this reason, we have introduced a new high performance, portable Brady label printer that produces identification labels which stick on clean, rough, oily and powdered surfaces and remain legible when exposed to extreme temperatures, chemicals, abrasion and pressure.
“These durable identification labels ensure greater workplace safety and complete traceability in challenging applications and environments.”
Hand-held Brady BMP™21-PLUS label printers provide automatic label formatting for wire wraps, terminal blocks, patch panels, cable flags and general banner labels. This device is protected by a rubber casing, which can withstand a fall from up to 2 m, without damage to the printer.
Other features include an ergonomic cutter and label grabber for holding the label after cutting, preventing it from falling. For added convenience, a heavy-duty magnet accessory and lanyard enable hands-free printing. This device is available with seven durable continuous materials, in widths from 6 mm to 38.10 mm. The instrument is fitted with a drop-lock-and-go cartridge and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery.
This easy-to-use system has a three-line LCD display that provides clear visibility, an ABC keypad, graphics library and menu functions for fast label creation. There are special symbols for electric, smart home, safety and datacom applications.
PermaSleeve™ heat-shrink wire and cable markers have fade-resistance and flame retardant features. Self-laminating wire and cable wraps are suitable for data cables and wires that are handled or moved frequently. These clear, wrap-around tail overlaminates, have a white print-on area to protect the text.
Nylon cloth wire and cable wraps are highly pliable and conform to tightly curved surfaces. Polyester strips, best suited for flat, smooth surfaces, are ideal for component marking. These high-performance strips withstand numerous solvents and variable temperatures and are available in a white and transparent finish, in 6.40 m lengths. The breaker box labelling feature provides clear identification of a distribution box, even when there are multiple modules of various widths.
Narrow nylon cloth label strips, with black on white print, are designed for alignment on terminal blocks. Also available are nylon and vinyl strips for patch panel marking. This system prints permanent port identification, with user-specified spacing, when using the patch panel mode.
A special range of indoor/outdoor vinyl is suitable for general industrial marking. This durable material, which resists grease, oil and most industrial chemicals, also adheres to irregular, rough and curved surfaces. The average expected outdoor life of this product is between eight and 10 years, in temperatures between -40˚C and -+82˚C. Magnet recommends a polyester overlaminate be used in harsh environments where the label is exposed to long-term wind and rain.
Brady BMP™21-PLUS label printers are available from Magnet, which offers a technical advisory and support service throughout the country.
