May 14, 2001 The AMP NETCONNECT Labeling System recently joined the marketplace at the BICSI Spring Conference, held in Las Vegas. A product of Tyco Electronics/AMP NETCONNECT, the labeling system is a simple, full-service software that provides application specific labels.
According to Brian Davis, product manager of Tyco's NETCONNECT Solutions Division, the system allows a user to "use up to 12 independent alpha-numeric sequences. "" Essentially, a user can command the program to print a series of labels in sequence, such as 01-A-01 to 01-A-12, by simply entering basic commands into dialog box prompts. In the absence of such software, users previously used Excel and had to write macros, says Davis.
The software operates off of a Microsoft Windows base and features a full complement of Windows fonts and graphics. Additional graphics can be imported to allow for a company logo, or other identifier, to be placed on the labels. Tyco makes the labels available in either paper, for ink-jet printers, or no-smudge polyester, for laser printers.
Users can purchase the full software for approximately $300 or visit www.ampnetconnect.com for a free downloadable version.
