Labels Quick Start Video & Instructions
Getting started quickly with printing labels in Calibration Control
Use this video and the instructions below to get started quickly with printing label
from our calibration management software (Calibration Control).
Check out the PDF of all the standard labels.
It's a good resource for choosing which label you want to use.
Make sure you are aware of these important points for printing labels with Calibration
- 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
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Print a Label: Open an equipment record and click the [Print
Asset Label] in the bottom-right corner of the dialog.
