Label printer complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) Label printer may not cause harmful interference, and (2) label printer
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
Label printer has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. Label printer generates,
uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If label printer
does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the label printer off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the label printer and receiver.
• Connect the label printer into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna
or transmitter.
Important
• The enclosed interface cable should be used in order to ensure compliance with the limits
for a Class B digital device.
• Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Brother Industries, Ltd. could void the
user's authority to operate the label printer.
CAUTION: To maintain compliance with FCC’s RF exposure guidelines, use only the
supplied antenna. Unauthorize antenna, modification, or attachments could damage the
transmitter and may violate FCC regulations.
This label printer complies with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled
environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines and RSS-102 of the
IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. This label printer has very low levels of RF energy that
are deemed to comply without testing of specific absorption rate (SAR).

Label printer complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) Label printer may not cause harmful interference, and (2) label printer
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
Label printer has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. Label printer generates,
uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If label printer
does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the label printer off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the label printer and receiver.
• Connect the label printer into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna
or transmitter.
Important
• The enclosed interface cable should be used in order to ensure compliance with the limits
for a Class B digital device.
• Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Brother Industries, Ltd. could void the
user's authority to operate the label printer.
CAUTION: To maintain compliance with FCC’s RF exposure guidelines, use only the
supplied antenna. Unauthorize antenna, modification, or attachments could damage the
transmitter and may violate FCC regulations.
This label printer complies with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled
environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines and RSS-102 of the
IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. This label printer has very low levels of RF energy that
are deemed to comply without testing of specific absorption rate (SAR).

Label printer complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) Label printer may not cause harmful interference, and (2) label printer
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
Label printer has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. Label printer generates,
uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If label printer
does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the label printer off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the label printer and receiver.
• Connect the label printer into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna
or transmitter.
Important
• The enclosed interface cable should be used in order to ensure compliance with the limits
for a Class B digital device.
• Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Brother Industries, Ltd. could void the
user's authority to operate the label printer.
CAUTION: To maintain compliance with FCC’s RF exposure guidelines, use only the
supplied antenna. Unauthorize antenna, modification, or attachments could damage the
transmitter and may violate FCC regulations.
This label printer complies with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled
environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines and RSS-102 of the
IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. This label printer has very low levels of RF energy that
are deemed to comply without testing of specific absorption rate (SAR).

Label printer complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) Label printer may not cause harmful interference, and (2) label printer
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
Label printer has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. Label printer generates,
uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If label printer
does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the label printer off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the label printer and receiver.
• Connect the label printer into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna
or transmitter.
Important
• The enclosed interface cable should be used in order to ensure compliance with the limits
for a Class B digital device.
• Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Brother Industries, Ltd. could void the
user's authority to operate the label printer.
CAUTION: To maintain compliance with FCC’s RF exposure guidelines, use only the
supplied antenna. Unauthorize antenna, modification, or attachments could damage the
transmitter and may violate FCC regulations.
This label printer complies with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled
environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines and RSS-102 of the
IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. This label printer has very low levels of RF energy that
are deemed to comply without testing of specific absorption rate (SAR).
