In the world of electronic labeling, the Q-Designer is a product of the Q-INK Company. Q-Designer is software that is designed to automate the entire process of designing labels from scratch to an electronic output in mere minutes. With this software you can design labels for interconnects, connectors, or other formats such as V- Tags, barcodes, USB Flash, and other types of labels. You can even create designs that are compliant with the ISO 9000 and EPCS specifications. This application is made to do more than simply create labels; it can also help you create labels for identification purposes and assist in managing your inventory.
The most popular version of this software is called Q-Connect. It has many new features that have been made available with Windows updates. Some of the newer additions include: support for more channel IDs, support for Microsoft SQL Server, support for OLE DB connectivity, and support for OLE DB stored procedures. In addition, the Q-Designer - Q-CONNECT Label Software has an application data dictionary which enables users to add text to the label. In this way you can connect a device such as a camera or printer to the system and then create the image or labels directly from your computer or a PDA.
To use the Q-Designer you must connect the computer to the PC with a USB cable and then download and install the software. You then follow the instructions on the desktop for inserting the label design into the software program. One important thing to remember is that there is no connection between the camera and the computer; instead, this connection is between the viewer and the software itself. After you select a design in the Q-Designer - Q-CONNECT label software you can either upload it to the computer or save it onto the SD card. If you do not have an SD card then simply save it onto the desktop so that you can access it directly if necessary.
