TE Connectivity’s cost-effective Z-type markers are suitable for industrial and electrical applications

DARMSTADT, Germany – February 26, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is promoting its Z-type push-on markers. The Z-type markers can be used in a wide variety of industrial and electrical applications and are ideal for low volume or one-off projects.

These push-on markers are used to identify wires and small cables permanently. Each individual marker is supplied pre-printed with a single letter, number or symbol. These can be combined on wires or cables to create alphanumeric codes. One advantage of this type of marker is that because they are pre-printed, no printer is required, which helps to keep costs down.

The markers are manufactured from PVC and designed with an expanding profile, enabling each marker to accommodate a wide range of wire/cable sizes.

“Our Z-type markers are a simple, cost-effective solution for many commercial wire identification applications. They are a cost-effective and straightforward way to mark cables, and many customers find them ideal for short codes of up to four to six letters and digits,” said Stephen Earley, global product manager, Identification Systems, TE.

TE’s Z-type markers are available in yellow or white with black legends and can be supplied as loose pieces packed in boxes or on reels. They are easy to apply, self-extinguishing, and resist key industrial fluids making them suitable for industrial applications.

Available in 7 different sizes, these Z-type markers cover wire diameters from 1.5mm to 6.9mm (0.06 inches to 0.27 inches), and applicator wands are available for easy application.
