Brady updates TLS 2200 supplies

TLS2200PCLinksmTLS supply improvement_PUC_US_D&E
Due to customer feedback, the core of the Brady TLS2200 and TLS PC Link supplies is receiving an upgrade.

  1. The new cartridge improves loading time by using new side tabs to secure material into the printer
  2. Easier storage and material handling is now possible avoiding media rolling off the spool.
  3. The new design allows for a more secure contact with the smart cell chip on the TLS media.

A rolling change of inventory will start February 2016. Custom TLS 2200 supplies will receive the update April of 2016. Catalog and part numbers will stay the same and quantities on the rolls will not change.


For customers using TLS2200 supplies in the Brady BMP71 a new media adapter has been created. Catalog number M71-ADAPT-BK and a firmware upgrade is needed to operate with the new supplies.
