Handheld Printer for Fast Marking on Site

Middletown, Pa. – Thermofox from Phoenix Contact is an easy-to-operate, handheld printer for small labeling projects in the field or around the industrial panel shop. Thermofox makes it easy to swap material cartridges for terminal block markers, shrink sleeves, self-laminating wire wraps, and indoor/outdoor vinyl tape. For power, the Thermofox accepts standard AA batteries, or a rechargeable lithium-ion battery is available.

The user simply enters the label data manually, or can transfer a marking file from another device such as a PC or Phoenix Contact’s Thermomark Prime. This allows creation of larger, more complex files faster than using the keyboard. Other benefits include a library of over 200 symbols, storage capacity of up to 20 files, barcode capability, and preprogrammed templates for patch panels and wire “flag” labels.

The continuous marking media are packaged with the matching ink ribbon in cartridge. The material length per cartridge varies from 1.8 meters (approximately 6 feet) to 8 meters (over 25 feet), depending on the material type. This averages to over 25 percent more media per cartridge than other handheld printers on the market.

The indoor/outdoor adhesive vinyl tape comes in four sizes up to 24 mm (1 in) and six colors. Available shrink sleeves are for conductor diameters up to 9.5 mm (12 AWG), and they are available in 3:1 and 2:1 shrink rates. Additionally, terminal markers can be printed as an adhesive strip or as a polyester “slide-on” strip, a unique format not previously available from a handheld printer.
