Spirit® 2100 Portable Printing System

April 18, 2003 -- Milwaukee, WI - HellermannTyton, a global manufacturer of network cabling and identification solutions, introduces the Spirit® 2100 portable printing system which efficiently creates durable, smudge resistant, thermal transfer printed labels. The completely portable, battery powered Spirit system is extremely functional and productive to use in the field, helping to dramatically decrease labor time in label creation and installation. A roll of labels prints continuously at 1.5" per second, which is approximately 4x faster than tape printers. Also, the Spirit labels are die cut, eliminating the need to cut individual labels to separate them. Featuring a "What You See is What You Get" (WYSIWYG) design and creation interface on a LCD screen, users can easily configure different text sizes, graphics, bar codes, serial numbers and more. The Spirit's RS232 communications port allows for interfacing between the label printer and a P.C. Label designs, graphics, and other label information is easily stored and shared. Label materials include self-laminating vinyl for wire and cable, white and metalized polyester for component marking, and tamper evident materials for calibration and security labeling. The Spirit printer comes with a hard shell case, rechargeable battery and charger, CD Rom tutorial, and other accessories for a full labeling package.

Todd Fries, HellermannTyton's Marketing Manager - Identification Systems, says, "The Spirit portable label printing system fits a unique and important niche in the marketplace. It offers a production quality, completely portable labeling solution that promotes substantial labor savings.

The Spirit is the only label printer in its class that will print label designs as they appear on the screen, which reduces label creation time. Because of the Spirit's fast print speed, labor savings is further increased. Also, the Spirit labels are printed on a liner, so there is no need to print a label and tear it off - or cut a strip of labels with a scissors after printing, as required by many other portable printers. Users are able to print and easily apply the labels directly from the liner, eliminating tedious and potentially expensive label cutting time. The Spirit offers high production tools in a portable printing system which is ideally designed for field applications in the telecommunications and electrical markets, as well as MRO and OEM applications."

In addition to the Spirit 2100, HellermannTyton manufactures many other industrial identification, network cabling, and cable management solutions. Key products include: TagPrint Pro labeling software, thermal transfer label printers and labels, laser, ink jet, and dot matrix printable labels, preprinted and hand writable wire markers; the GigaBand® Category 6 and MegaBand® Category 5e structured cabling products for local area networks; racks, shelves, and wire managers; surface raceway systems; wiring duct; and cable ties, clamps, and specialty fasteners.
