UPS goes label free with new printer

UPS goes label free with new printerThis thing may look like an X-Man accessory or strange sci-fi gun that straps on your arm and sucks your precious lifeforce with every round it fires, but no, as cool as that would be, it’s just something UPS is using so they can get all label-free. It’s HP’s Handheld sp400 All-in-One, which scans barcodes and prints sorting info directly onto boxes with quick-drying ink. No paper labels are required at all. UPS has been testing it out at a shipping center in Orlando, where they reportedly used it on 40,000 boxes with not a single error. Of course there was that one guy they pants in order to tattoo his butt cheeks, but that doesn’t count.

This device alone will make the company much greener. It will replace several larger, less green pieces of equipment like a giant thermal printer, PC, monitor and scanner. According to UPS the company will save 92,456 hours, 1,338 tons of paper and 3,807 tons of carbon emissions a year. That’s pretty big.

New APC UPS devices offer energy efficiency technology

APC recently unveiled some new uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) units which it says are more energy efficient. These models are part of the APC Back-UPS ES line up and range from around $45 to $100.

APC said the APC Back-UPS ES line uses charging technology “which allows the product’s master outlet to sense when the computer has either been turned off or has gone into sleep mode, so it can shut off power to unused peripherals plugged into the controlled outlets.” The APC Back-UPS ES 450, 550 and 650 models feature eight surge protected outlets, with four of the outlets also providing battery backup. The APC Back-UPS ES 750 offers ten surge protected outlets, with five of the outlets also providing battery backup. There is also a 350 model that features six surge protected outlets.
