And with the PT-E550W’s wireless connectivity to download and store data and templates for use in the field, it can help minimize keystrokes and human error on the job site.

Smart technology, rugged construction and intuitive operation, with clearly marked buttons and easy-to-follow menus, can help make even the most complex projects go faster. Now, everyone can mark cable systems that can withstand the test of time and meet many of the highest professional standards.


Key features of the P-touch EDGE® PT-E550W include:

  • QWERTY style keyboard and rugged easy-to-grip design allows comfortable one or two-hand operation that makes entering data as easy as texting or sending a message.
  • Large backlit graphical LCD display provides at-a-glance view of label design settings, and allows you to preview and edit label content before you print.
  • Automatic smart font-sizing technology enables printing of clearly formed, readable characters on durable laminated labels up to 24mm wide – including heat shrink tube – perfect for conforming to the short and long ANSI/EIA/TIA 606x identifier format
  • Built-in dual-blade automatic cutter can be set to cut labels to specified lengths, whether they are for labeling faceplates, patch panels, punch blocks or general cable runs.
  • Wireless (802.11b/g) and USB connectivity and built-in software allow you to download and store data from common databases, as well as custom or pre-formatted label templates, to help save time and minimize human error when generating labels with text, symbols and barcodes at the job site.
  • Faster label printing speeds, – up to 30mm per second – and automated label cutting, can help speed labeling onsite and boost installation efficiency and productivity.
  • Convenient, all-in-one drop-in cartridge design makes it fast and easy to switch between HGe or TZe laminated labels and heat shrink tube. Just swap the cartridge! Perfect when you need a smooth, lasting heat shrink identifier for narrow gauge or bundled wire and cable.
  • Advanced Alpha and Numeric Serializing allows installers to quickly pre-print labels for a project by automatically incrementing a number and/or letter individually or simultaneously.
