Small but mighty, HellermannTyton’s permanent marking solution, the TipTag5, can help engineers identify even the smallest wires and cables in the most challenging of environments.
The cable management specialist has designed the 5.5mm high by 50mm long cable marker to ensure compatibility with the requirements of the telecoms industry. For instance, it is halogen-free for use in data centres. An evolution of HellermannTyton’s original TipTag solution, the business recognises that these would be too large for bespoke use in telecoms and in data centres.
Ideal for marking wire and cable bundles, the TipTag5 range provides two rows of printable tags, offering customers a quicker and more efficient printing process. And for optimal print quality and longevity, the tags can be printed either on or off-site using HellermannTyton’s premium range of thermal transfer printers and ribbons.
Mary Arrowsmith, Product Manager for HellermannTyton, comments, “We are delighted to introduce the TipTag5 to the telecoms industry. As a business, we are always looking for ways to improve our solutions to best suit the needs of our customers. In the world of telecoms, we identified that our standard TipTags would be too large and impractical for their needs, so we have designed the TipTag5 as a bespoke identification solution which can cover small to large cables, complementing our existing range and meeting requirements for small data cables.
“As well as providing easy identification, its perforated design, with fastening slots for cable ties, ensures secure labelling, we have also included a wrap-around feature that tops the cable ties from being secured too tightly to prevent damaging the fibre cables.”
Manufactured from a specially compounded halogen-free material, the TipTag5 is designed for use where limited fire hazard properties are required, and can operate in temperatures ranging from 40-90ºC, making it suitable for challenging environments.
