Easier printing is on its way.

Just update your apps, then label. Simple.

Seamless … that’s Brady’s Android SDK

Everyone wants an easier way to print. Especially in the field, where money is attached to minutes. If your apps can’t connect to a Brady printer, here’s the fix: Brady’s Software Development Kit (SDK).

With it, your employees can use their own Android apps to print labels. It’s fast. It’s convenient. It’s a seamless way to get label data to a Brady printer.

How does it work?

  1. Download the latest Brady SDK file.

  2. Create a label template

    This will have uneditable objects and editable placeholders. (You’ll need Brady Workstation desktop software to do this.)

    See The Software
  3. Write code to call Brady’s SDK library functions. This allows your app to connect to a Brady printer, map variable data to the template, preview the label and print.

The SDK Library … connecting you to your work

The SDK Library is the way work gets done. It connects, retrieves, monitors and supports you, allowing for faster and more efficient workflows. With it, you’ll be able to:

  • Connect to an M211 or M611 Label Printer using Bluetooth Classic or Network Wi-Fi
  • Populate a Brady Workstation label template
  • Retrieve printer status, errors, power and name
  • Retrieve dimensions of the installed label material
  • Set print copies and cut options
  • Preview the label before printing
  • See print progress
  • Print to your M211 or M611 Label Printer

The Brady SDK supports devices running Android version 6 or newer.
