Brady

February 6, 2018

Brady, a global leader in industrial and safety printing systems and solutions, has announced it has joined the LinkWare Live Affiliates Program from Fluke Networks, and has released new functionality within the Brady Text Labels mobile app to integrate the wireless print capabilities of the Brady BMP51 or BMP61 Portable Label Printers with the industry-leading LinkWare Live cloud certification platform.

Together, the Brady Text Labels Mobile App and Fluke Networks’ LinkWare Live improve the efficiency and productivity of network and cable labeling processes by eliminating the old time‑wasting manual data entry tasks by printing with data generated from LinkWare Live, a single database containing all the data required during the network design and installation stages.

“There are tremendous business benefits for contractors and installers using Brady products integrated with LinkWare Live,” said Nicole Nelson, global product manager for portable systems at Brady. “Brady is a leading provider of high-performance materials that are specified in key applications and companies in the Information and Communication Technology (ITC) industry. Now, by being able to manage, access and print cable IDs from a single database via LinkWare Live, the solution not only reduces errors, automates and speeds up the labeling process – it will increase profitability on each project for our customers.”

This partnership allows project managers, cable technicians and installers to easily access projects in LinkWare Live, import cable ID data to the Brady mobile app and use templates or create and edit labels to simplify labeling tasks. Installers can either print in the field using LinkWare Live to download files to the Brady Text Labels mobile app or download files before heading to a project. The connection from the Brady mobile app to a Brady BMP51 or BMP61 portable wireless printer allows for easy and efficient editing and printing of labels in the field.

“We are hearing from contractors and installers that they are experiencing double-digit increases in productivity by using cable ID and labeling applications and printers integrated with LinkWare Live, like Brady’s BMP51 or BMP61 printers driven by the Brady Text Labels Mobile App,” said Eric Conley, Vice

President and General Manager of Fluke Networks. “LinkWare Live Affiliates, like Brady, are giving contractors and installers all the advantages they need to not only create more efficient workflows that improve productivity, but to transform the way they work and do business.”

The Brady Text Labels mobile app is a free label creation app that allows for the easy creation of basic text labels frequently used in the Datacomm industry. With this app, users can apply text options and preview changes, fill in labels with repeating text, create sequenced labels, quickly use data from a CSV file and apply special fonts to labels. The app is available on the Apple® iOS App and Android Google Play™ stores.

LinkWare Live allows users to upload, manage and analyze complex cable installation data from anywhere. LinkWare Live operates in the cloud and bridges the gap between the project manager’s office, where much of the data for cable installations originates, and the jobsite. The ability for onsite workers and project managers to access the same data, regardless of their location, creates considerable efficiencies. LinkWare Live works with Fluke Networks Versiv testers, including DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer™, OptiFiber™ Pro and CertiFiber™ Pro certification testers.

This new partnership will be unveiled at the BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida on February 4-6. Visit Brady at booth 324 for a full demonstration of the Brady and Fluke Networks partnership.

Cloud

There has been a lot of talk about cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models these days but both are relatively new to the lighting industry. Let’s take a look at what they are as well as their roles in commercial lighting.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of compute power, database storage, and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go or subscription-based pricing. Cloud computing means that instead of all the computer hardware, software, and data that you are using sitting somewhere inside your company’s network, it’s provided and managed for you as a service by another company and you access it over the Internet.

Lumens

This article is an excerpt from a technical brief, “Understanding LM-80, Lumen Maintenance, and LED Fixture Lifetime,” by Philips Color Kinetics.

Test results of lumen maintenance in conventional and LED light sources differ considerably. This is known as the lumen maintenance gap. These tests are performed to determine the useful life of a light source. But how do we compare lighting technologies satisfactorily if test results of a same designation do not mean the same thing? These lumen maintenance measurement distinctions are those we will examine in this article, as a clear understanding of this gap will have a significant impact on the installation, maintenance and replacement cost calculations of lighting products.

Meeting people in our industry often comes with surprises. This was the case with Jean-Marc Myette, Business Development Manager of ABB’s Electrification Products Division and chair of the Board of Electro-Federation Canada’s Quebec section. Not only does he know the electrical industry down to the most minute product and technological innovations, he is also a professional car racer on sabbatical, and someone very involved in his business community and personal life.
