Brother PT-E550WSP Label Printer


Brother PT-E550WSP Label Printer

A thermal label printer, capable of printing onto a range of tapes in sizes from 3.5mm up to 24mm wide, and heatshrink tubing for labelling cables. There are limited supplies of label tape available in a box on the electronics shelves but if you need something specific or plan on using a lot of tape you will need to bring your own. Please only charge it using the supplied charger, it uses a non-standard type of charger (12V center-negative) and will be damaged if a standard charger is used!

The machine uses the Brother TZe format cartridges. A list of available tapes can be found on Brother's website.

The user manual for the PT-E550WSP can be found here. There is also a manual for using the label printer via it's wifi network interface here and the correct software is installed on Design Station 2.
