Epson has joined Fluke Networks’ new LinkWare Live Affiliates Program. As a result, the Epson LABELWORKS PX LW-PX400 industrial label printer and its free Datacom app now work with Fluke Networks’ LinkWare Live cable management and testing platform to make cable and wire installers’ jobs easier.
Per the companies, "Together, the LW-PX400 printer, Datacom app and LinkWare Live platform make cable labeling more efficient by allowing installation technicians to print wire/cable ID labels on the job using the data generated in LinkWare Live during the network design stage, eliminating the need to re-enter data during the labeling phase of an installation. Epson’s Datacom app works with iOS and Android devices and accepts LinkWare Live’s cloud-based data for single or batch cable, patch panel and faceplate labels. The LW-PX400 prints on adhesive labels, magnetic labels, glow-in-the-dark labels, heat shrink tube, self-laminated wire wrap, and other supplies from 1/8" (4 mm) to 1" (24 mm)."
Andrew Kasun, marketing manager for Epson LABELWORKS PX, comments: “The LW-PX400 works wirelessly in the field via Bluetooth and the Epson Datacom app, making cable identification easy and seamless with LinkWare Live. Plus the Datacom app is designed for ultimate versatility with templates for patch panels, self-lamination wire wrap, heat shrink tubes, and TIA-606-B formatting, so network installers have everything needed to label work accurately and efficiently.”
“Today’s cable installation projects are larger and more complex, and the demands that face network designers and installers are more rigorous than they were a few years ago,” notes Eric Conley, vice president and general manager of Fluke Networks. “When we initially conceived of LinkWare Live in 2014, we set out to create a solution that would eliminate common pitfalls and add productivity in our customers’ project work. Affiliates such as Epson with their LABELWORKS PX are now leveraging this solution to improve the capabilities of their tools and the productivity of their customers.”
LinkWare Live was introduced as among the first cloud-connected infrastructure platforms with cable certification capabilities, and works with Fluke Networks’ Versiv certification testers, including the DSX CableAnalyzer series, OptiFiber Pro and CertiFiber Pro testers. The LW-PX400 printer, Datacom app and LinkWare Live platform were demonstrated at Epson's and Fluke Networks' booths at the 2017 BICSI Fall Conference and Exhibition (Sept. 24-28) last week in Las Vegas.
