Important Points

Make sure you are aware of these important points for printing labels with Calibration Control.

  1. Brother Label Printers:  Calibration Control uses the Brother P-touch (PT) label printers.  You must have one of these label printers to print labels with our calibration management software.
  2. Printer Drivers:  No matter what the printer box says, you must install the printer drivers included on the CD (or downloaded from Brother) following the instructions and not plugging in and turning on the printer until the installation routine instructs you to do so.
  3. Label Files:  Calibration Control makes use of label layout files (*.lbx) stored in the Labels folder under the Files folder.  Your label files must reside in the Labels folder for Calibration Control to find them.  Watch the video on Calibration Control folders to understand the folder layout.
  4. Label File Number Prefixes:  The 120+ label files that come with Calibration Control begin with the millimeter prefixes of 12 (1/2 inch), 18 (3/4 inch), or 24 (1 inch) to identify the width of label tape required.
  5. Set Default Labels:  Use the Options dialog to set the default labels for Calibration Due, Asset, and Cal Not Required.  Be sure to select labels with the same width as the tape in your P-touch printer.
  6. Print a Label:  Open an equipment record and click the [Print Asset Label] in the bottom-right corner of the dialog.
