Introduction to Labels

Introduction to Labels

This section describes the material, types, structure, and label contents and how to print, fill in, and attach labels, as well as related precautions.

Label Specifications

  • Thickness: 0.09 mm
  • Color: chalk white
  • Material: polyester (PET)
  • Ambient temperature: -29°C to +149°C
  • Compatible with laser print and oiliness markers
  • Passes the UL and CSA authentication

Type and Structure

Signal Cable Labels
The label for signal cables is L-shaped with fixed dimensions, as shown in Figure 4-44.
Figure 4-44  Signal cable labels

To clearly specify the position of a cable, use the dividing lines on the label. There is a dividing line between the cabinet number and the chassis number, and another one between the chassis number and the slot number. The dividing line is 1.5 mm x 0.6 mm in size and is colored PONTONE 656c (light blue).

The perforated line helps with folding the label when affixed to the cable. Its size is 1 mm x 2 mm.

The lower right corner of the label is marked with "TO:" (upside-down in the figure). The mark is used to identify the opposite end of the cable on which the label is affixed.

Power Cable Label

The label for power cables should be attached to the identification plate on the cable ties that are bundled to the cable. The identification plate has an embossment of 0.2 mm x 0.6 mm around (symmetrical on both sides) and the area in the middle is for affixing the label, as shown in Figure 4-45.

Label Printing

Contents can be printed or written on labels. Printing is recommended for clarity and efficiency.

Template for Printing

You can obtain a template from the Huawei local office to print labels.

The templates are made in Microsoft Word. Adhere to the following template requirements:
  • Directly modify the contents on the template. Do not change the centered characters, direction, or fonts.
  • When there are too many characters to be filled in, zoom out the characters while ensuring that the printouts are still clear.
Merging Cells in the Template
To merge two or more cells, perform the following operations:
  1. Select Edit/Select All.
  2. Select Format/Borders and Shading/Borders. Select Box tab and click OK.
  3. Drag the mouse to select cells to be merged and select the Table/Merge Cells.
Printer Requirements
A laser jet printer must be used to print labels. There is no restriction on the printer model. Before printing labels, do a test print as follows:
  1. Try printing on a piece of standard paper that is blank on both sides. Cover the label paper with the piece of standard paper and check whether the page setup conforms to the requirement.
  2. Make sure the printer properties, such as "paper size" and "direction", have been set correctly.
    • If the printout conforms to the requirement, print it to label paper.
    • If the printout does not conform to the requirement, adjust the page setup, and print again until the correct printout is produced.
The method of adjusting the page setup is as follows:
  1. Select File/Page Setup.
  2. Select Layout and set Header and Footer as 0.
  3. Select the Margins tab page. Select Left for Gutter Position and adjust the values of Top, Bottom, Left, and Right.

    If the warning prompt as shown in Figure 4-46 appears before printing, click Ignore to continue the printing.

After the page setup has been configured, save it for future use. You only need to configure the page setup the first time you use the template to print the labels.

Requirements on Feeding Labels into the Printer

The label paper is different from standard paper and is composed of two pages. No matter which model of printer you are using, feed in the labels by hand one after the other. Never use the auto-feed mode.

Different printer models may have different feeding modes. Make sure to feed in the labels correctly.

Requirements for Printed Labels
Make sure that the printed labels satisfy the following requirements:
  • All printing is done on the label side and not the reverse side.
  • Cell contents are aligned in the center. In a single-line printout, the dividing lines and the "TO:" mark are not obscured by the printed text.
  • When the cells are merged and printing is done on multiple lines, avoid obscuring the "To:" mark. When aligning the text, use the space bar to move the text to the next line.

Writing Labels

Writing Tools

To ensure that the labels are clear, when filling out the labels by hand, use black oiliness markers instead of ballpoint pens.

In special cases, black ballpoint pens are allowed, but they are not recommended. When writing with a ballpoint pen, do not leave any wet ink on the label because it may smudge.


The included marker has two nibs. Use the smaller nib to write labels.

To ensure clarity when writing by hand, try to emulate the Times New Roman typeface (uppercase) as accurately as possible. Table 4-21 shows uppercase Times New Roman.
Table 4-21  Times New Roman (uppercase)





































Do not write too large or too small of text. Writing should be clear and neat.

Writing direction: The direction is as shown in Figure 4-47:

Affixing Labels

After printing or writing a label, remove the label from the label sheet and affix it to the signal cable or the identification plate of the power cable.

Affixing Signal Cable Labels
  • Choose where to affix labels.

    Affix the label 2 cm from the connector on the signal cable. In special cases, to avoid bending or otherwise affecting cables, affix the label elsewhere. As shown in Figure 4-48, orient the labels according to the following specifications:
    • For vertical cabling, orient the rectangular part of the label out to the right.
    • For cabling laid out horizontally, orient the rectangular part of the label downward.
    Figure 4-48  Signal cable labeling orientation

  • Affix labels.

    Figure 4-49 shows the procedures for affixing labels.
    Figure 4-49  Signal cable labeling procedure

Affixing the Power Cable Label

Remove the label from the bottom page and then affix it to the identification plate on the cable tie. Affix the label to the rectangular flute on only one side of the identification plate. Cable ties are bound 2 cm from the connectors. In special circumstances, other positions are allowed.

Cable ties should be bound on both ends of a cable. After cable ties are in position, depending on the orientation of the cabling, the finished identification plate should be positioned on the top or on the right side of the cable, as shown in Figure 4-50. Orientation rules are as follows:
  • For vertical cabling, orient the identification card out to the right of the cable.
  • For cabling laid out horizontally, orient the identification card above the cable and make sure the label is facing out.

Label Contents

Label Contents for Power Cables

Labels for power cables are only affixed on one side of the identification plates. They contain information about the location of the device on the other end of the cable, like the location of control cabinet, distribution box, or power socket.

Label Contents for Signal Cables
Both sides of the label affixed on the signal cable contain information about the location of the ports connected to both ends of the cable. Figure 4-51 shows the information on both sides of the signal cable labels.
  • Area 1 contains information about the location of the local end of the cable.
  • Area 2 (marked with "TO:") contains information about the location of the opposite end of the cable.
  • Area 3 is folded inside the label and contains no information.
Figure 4-51  Areas on signal cable labels

From the perspective of the cabling end of the equipment, the text part of the label is on the right side of the cable. The side marked "TO:" faces outward and contains information about the location of the opposite end of the cable; the other side contains information about the location of the local end.

Information in Area 1 at one end of the cable is the same as the information in Area 2 at the other end of the cable.

Labeling Precautions

When using labels, note the following:
  • When printing, writing on, or affixing labels, keep the labels clean.
  • Since the label paper is made of moistureproof and waterproof material, ink-jet printers and fountain pens cannot be used for labeling.
  • Labels should be affixed neatly. Newer label types are strip-shaped.
  • Power cable ties should be tied in the same position as power cables with identification plates on the same side.
  • The directions "up", "down", "left" or "right" are all based on the viewpoint of the working engineer.
