The DS9106 iButton® halos are 0.25mm, thin vinyl highlighters that slide over an iButton that is to be labeled with text, picture, or numeric information. The halo is retained by a friction fit to the iButton it is pressed onto and one or two DS9096P double-sided adhesive pads.
The halo itself is blank. Readable graphics are added using commercially available label printers such as the P-Touch series of products from BROTHER and the VARITRONICS EasyStep Label Printers.
These manufacturers also offer software support for IBM®- and MAC-compatible computers. For best visibility and contrast, the labels should be printed black on transparent film. With their adhesive backing, they then mount on the fluorescent-colored iButton halo.
