LabeLase® Producer

The LabeLase® Producer software controls the operation and interface of an InfoSight Corporation Model 1000 series laser LabeLase® printer. This software runs on a Windows 2000/XP computer and provides complete control over the laser tag printer. The program can also run on a Windows 9x computer, but with reduced capabilities. Since the program is Windows based, the software can take advantage of the many capabilities of Windows such as a variety of fonts, graphic images, network interfaces, etc.

Included with this program is a feature that provides a graphical “WYSIWYG” editor that allows you to create a tag layout quickly and easily. With this tool, you can quickly add text, barcodes, custom bitmap images, lines, boxes and ellipses to your tag layout. Once your layout is complete, the laser tag printer can print it. The tag layout can be saved in a file on your hard drive for archival purposes and to allow it to be edited as needed later. 

The LabeLase® Producer software provides many features that make laying out a tag image easy and enjoyable.

The LabeLase® Producer software allows you to configure, create and print tags directly from your Windows computer. The program provides basic features for operator level personnel to open and print tag layouts as well as more advanced features accessible to supervisory personnel for configuring and maintaining the printer.

Operator Mode

The operator mode is the native mode of the software. When the program starts, it is in the operator mode and the more advanced features are not available. In this mode, the operator can perform the following operations:
  • Open a tag layout that is stored on disk
  • Enter text into the layout’s data fields if enabled
  • Enter a starting serial number if enabled
  • Enter the quantity of tags to print
  • Begin the print operation

Controls are also available to allow the operator to feed / reverse feed a tag if necessary.

Supervisor Mode

The supervisor mode is provided to allow more advanced control of the tag printing process. To enter this mode, pull down the File menu and select Supervisor. You will be asked to supply a password to enable the supervisory features. When the program is first installed on your computer, no password is set. It is strongly recommended that you create a password soon after installing the software to prevent unauthorized personnel from accessing the advanced features of the program. In the supervisor mode, the following operations can be performed:

All of the things the operator can do, plus…
