Thermal printable labels can be automated
Silver and white thermally printable 50-micron polyester rating labels can identify motors, engine starters of electric vehicles, relays, hydraulic pumps and electrical installations, as well as be placed on solar panels in areas where there is no direct exposure to the sun, says TE Connectivity.
The PR115 self-adhesive polyester rating labels are custom-designed labels and have UL969 category PGJI2 file MH29684 approval. Therefore, explains TE, they can be printed by end-use product manufacturers using thermal transfer equipment.
The labels can be dispensed automatically, adding to the efficiency of automated assembly and production processes, explains TE. They can be directly applied from the printer to the back of a solar module.
The 50-micron polyester labels have an operating temperature range from -40 to +150 degrees C and can be customised with pre-printed designs and applied on a large range of substrates including acrylic paint, aluminum and epoxy paint.
They have an acrylic adhesive thickness of 20 microns and are therefore recommended for smooth surfaces. The labels are available in satin silver or gloss white and are thermal transfer printable using TE’s current T200 Ident, T3212 and T3224 printers, along with the previous printer range TE3112 and TE3124.
