Wire identification is necessary for machine trouble shooting purposes. Currently, a 10 color wire coding scheme is utilized. This scheme helps in trouble shooting, but leaves much to be desired because of duplication of colors for differing functions that can cause confusion and error. The proposed device would allow each wire to be uniquely identified, and would greatly reduce the incident of error. The color of the wire could be reduced to one color such as white, or at least returned to the old wire color code of brown and blue for AC and orange and violet for DC.

colors and configurations as required. It has the necessary speed, accuracy and flexibility to perform almost any identification task. It could be utilized to apply marking of all types such as simple alpha-numeric codes, inspection symbols, logos, or all the information normally contained on a label.
