THE BOTTOM LINE

The Brady BMP41 Label Printer Voice and Data Communications Starter Kit is an industrial-strength labeling system designed for tagging telecom and datacom network wiring, face plates, patch panels, equipment, and more.

MSRP $470.00

The Brady BMP41 Label Printer Voice and Data Communications Starter Kit ($470) is a midrange industrial label printer designed to tag wires, cables, ports, face plates, patch panels, and myriad other telecom and data center components—often making manageable what would otherwise surely (and quickly) become chaos. Like the entry-level Brady BMP21-Plus Printer Kit, the BMP41 differs from most business-oriented labelers, including Brother’s QL-1110NWB and several others reviewed here, in that it (like most Brady label printers) produces labels on materials conducive to the harsher, more exacting conditions existing in today’s voice and data switching and termination environments, data centers, and server farms. Unlike its entry-level sibling, which requires you to manage (from design to print) all aspects of your industrial label-making on the printer itself, this one provides the software and other means for making and downloading labels on a Windows PC, which is enough to elevate the BMP41 to our first Editors’ Choice among industrial labeling systems.
