These recommended practices will helpimprove facility efficiency and increase safety through effectivevisual communication. Self-Laminating Cable Wraps are used for identifying a cable orwire with a termination is in place. Patch Panel Labels are used for identifying network cabling,recording studio layouts, and radio and television panels forconnecting the appropriate cables to jacks. Faceplate Labels are used in identifying the outlet box for coaxial,category 5, 6, 6E or fiber optic cables.Keep this guide handy in your facility, workstation, or on thejobsite.

SELF-LAMINATINGWRAPS, ROTATE,ROTATE ANDREPEAT LABELSIf your cable is terminated and you need to mark it,here are some solutions. Choices range from asingle wire marker to production for wireharnesses and cable assemblies.SELF-LAMINATING WRAPSSelf-laminating labels (cable wraps) are unique labels printed in portrait style. Your legend isprinted on a white (other colours are available) background approximately 25% of theoverall label length. (Your legend can only be as wide as your label is tall; a 24mm widelabel will allow approximately 10 characters in a small point size). The rest of the label isclear. The reason for the coloured background is to be able to see the legend, the “tail” isclear to cover and seal the printed legend, while allowing the label to be read.To apply after printing:1. Remove the label backing2. Place the legend parallel to the cable and pressfirmly against the cable3. Roll the clear tail around the legend on the cable.The cable is now marked and protected by theclear “tail”. The connection or termination didnot have to be removed for this identification tobe installed. This method saves money and time.

ROTATE LABELSRotate labels and rotate and repeat labels performthe same function, but are different in appearance tothe self-laminating labels (cable wraps). There is noclear tail required to protect the legend and you setthe entire label length prior to printing.Rotate means the labels are rotated and printed once in portrait mode (your legend canonly be as wide as your label is tall; a 24mm wide label will allow approximately 10characters in a small point size). When installing the rotate label be sure to apply the blankend of the label first and wrap or you will not be able to read the legend.ROTATE AND REPEAT LABELSRotate and repeats print the legend in portrait style over the entire length of the labeltapes. As with the self-laminating labels, place your legend parallel to the cable and roll thelabel around the cable. Since the legend is repeated over the entire length of the label, itwill be highly visible.Rotate, rotate and repeat label tapes are unique products that accept the curve of thecable and will adhere to themselves.Depending on the volume and location of the cables to be marked, an automated cablelabeling system may be required. These are used for production in building wire harnesses.This device prints and wraps the cable in one step. Select the job, insert the cable and it’sprinted and wrapped in seconds!The EPSON LW-PX900 Label Printer and Wire Marker is a popular and efficient way ofidentifying cables with self-laminating labels. Insert the supply cartridge (which has themedia and print ribbon included) into the printer, select the Self-Lam hotkey, enter yourlegend and press print.[ NEUMANNMARKING.COM ] GUIDE TO CABLE, PATCH PANEL AND FACEPLATE LABELING

PATCH PANEL LABELSA patch panel is a device or unit featuring a number of jacks, usually of the same or similartype, for the connecting and routing of circuits for monitoring, interconnecting, and testingcircuits. Patch panels are commonly used in computer networking, recording studios, radioand television. Patch panels form the main link to collect data, and route it to where it needs to go.Patch panels enable the process of moves, additions, and changes. Ports are one of the most important of patch panel components. Ports are the physicalconnection points that provide a place for data to enter and exit the panel, and areconnected with patch cables.For best practice, panels should feature cable management bars and enough space forlabeling and port count configuration flexibility. Labeling on the front of the port should beclear and legible.Patch panel labels can be printed on site with a portable label printer. Many brands of labelprinters have templates pre-installed for patch panels. Call up the brand, number of ports,enter the data and print your label copies. The self-adhesive labels are available in a varietyof widths and tape/ink colour combinations for customization.For large jobs, a desktop printer can be used to print out the legends using amanufacturer’s template or by creating your own. If you are familiar with spreadsheets andprinter page setup, it will take only a few minutes. This self-adhesive material is sold in rollsof 150 feet in length and can be custom cut to the width you require. GUIDE TO CABLE, PATCH PANEL AND FACEPLATE LABELING[ NEUMANNMARKING.COM ]

To complete the job, it’s recommended to mark the patch cables. This is easily done withself-laminating cable markers. These can be supplied in a cartridge format. Install thecartridge in the portable label printer, select your format, enter your legend, and print. Thiscan be done on the job or in the shop. Again, if you have a large job, the desktop printercan be used for this purpose. It is typical for the installer to have both a portable printer foron-the-job for changes, discrepancies or commissioning and a desktop printer in the officefor the bulk of the work.Patch panel labeling is important. When it comes time to modify, change or repairanything, a label will make your job as easy as moving that patch cable.FACEPLATE LABELSA faceplate (or wall plate) is the front-cover an electrical device, outlet or light switch.The reason to have a faceplate is obvious, to protect the inside connections from outsideinfluences. With a plate cover, the outlet must be identified as to what it contains.Identifying outlets is important for making modifications or troubleshooting a problem. Youroutlet box may contain coaxial, cat 5 or fiber optic cable that is used for television, telephone,video, audio, or broadband network connections. If you require an outlet activated, or havea problem with an existing outlet, you will need to have the faceplate number when you callthe help desk. Each connection may have its own number or one number that covers all theconnections. This is why each faceplate or outlet number is unique.If faceplates are missing the label, or thelabel is damaged or difficult to read, itbecomes difficult for the user to properlyidentify the outlet and for support torepair the problem.A number of printers, both portable andcomputer connected, are available to printdurable synthetic labels which will standup to the wear and tear of the location.Cleaning staff may use commercial cleaners to wipe down the faceplates. These wipingsmay, over time, remove the legend from the label or the corner of the label may be lifted.Once the label corner is lifted, the label will be more susceptible to removal. With the labelmissing or damaged, identification for repair becomes more difficult. Labels with a vinyl orpoly coating will withstand these cleanings. Some printers have a device built in to trim thecorners of the label making them much more resistant to corner peeling.[ NEUMANNMARKING.COM ] GUIDE TO CABLE, PATCH PANEL AND FACEPLATE LABELING

If the faceplate is in a common area, the label may be more subject to removal or evenreplaced with a label with incorrect information. Specialty label material is availablethat resembles a standard adhesive machine generated label, but leaves a pattern onthe surface if they are removed. If this label is reapplied, the label will not adhere andwill be an indicator that tampering may have occurred.Faceplate labels can be printed by a variety of printers, depending on how many labelsyou require for installation and how fast you need them. Installers may prefer to use aportable printer and print and install labels as they work thru a job. Others may have the labelsprinted in a long continuous strip and remove them as they install them. Modern printers have theoption to print and cut one label at a time; print a continuous strip of labels with the label cutbetween the legends but the backing intact. This allows the user to have all the labels in one strip,but to select which label to install. Bulk printing can also be done where the user will cut the labeloff as required. Printers can be setup to print repeat, sequencing and barcodes depending uponthe job requirement.It is time well spent if the amount of time spent on planning your label print job is the same as thetime spent planning your faceplate legends.
