January 8, 2009--RHINO Professional Labeling Tools, a brand of DYMO and part of Newell Rubbermaid's Technology business unit, has announced a product collaboration with SMP Data Communications, which includes the development and distribution of pre-formatted electronic templates. The collaboration was formed from a mutual goal of making the labeling of structured cabling systems easier and more efficient for installers.

Specifically, the collaboration has resulted in electronic templates that allow the RHINO 6000 and RHINO 6500 label printers to format labels for SMP connectivity products, including patch cords, faceplates, patch panels, 110 blocks, and other structured cabling system components. The electronic templates can be downloaded for free from RHINO's website, and imported into RHINO CONNECT software. Label information can then be entered into the template either manually or directly from a Windows-based PC application, then printed out onto labels that specifically fit SMP components.

"With the Rhino templates for SMP components, we are pleased to give installers a means to have a complete standards-compliant solution that includes meeting the TIA 606 labeling requirements," says Brad Everette, RHINO vice president of sales Western Region.
