The BMP51 and BMP53 Label Makers from Brady are the company’s first label printers to feature a Bluetooth Network Card. This means labels can now be designed on an Android Smartphone, using Brady’s newly launched free Mobile Application for Android. An optional Wi-Fi card enables wireless printing.

“Brady Mobile allows field workers to print labels ‘on the go’ from their Android Smartphone, without the need to carry a laptop or any other device,” explained Gino Van der Ven, regional product manager for Brady Corporation. Brady Mobile was specifically designed for easy creation of label templates. It includes a bar coding feature and a wide variety of symbols and pictograms.

The only difference between the two printers is that the BMP51 Label Maker is the stand alone version and features an LCD screen and a QWERTY keyboard to allow for a more traditional way of designing labels.

Another new feature is the easy-to-load cartridge which contains both the label material and ribbon so that they can run out at the same time. Both models also offer a smart cell technology that allows the printer to automatically select the format of the label that corresponds to the chosen material. Both label makers also offer a built-in cutter, high speed print and USB PC connectivity for advanced label design with Brady’s LabelMark Labelling Software.

There are a number of power supply options including AA batteries, AC power supply, or a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
