New desktop thermal printers
Zebra Technologies Corporation has unveiled its new ZD400-series desktop thermal printers.
Designed for retail, transportation and logistics, manufacturing, and healthcare industries, the ZD400-series is flexible and user-friendly, making deployment, use, and troubleshooting easier. With connectivity options and Zebra’s Link-OS software, users can also manage all printers anywhere via the cloud, gaining real-time asset intelligence across the enterprise.
The ZD410 has been designed to fit the smallest work spaces. The ultra-compact 5cm direct thermal printer can be placed wherever employees need to work and is suitable for printing high-quality labels, receipts and tags in applications including pharmacy prescription labels, shelf-labelling, price markdowns and scale labels.
ZD420 is said to be the first desktop thermal transfer printer with an easy-to-load ribbon cartridge that significantly reduces the downtime required to reload printer ribbons. This makes it easier for warehouse staff – permanent, temporary or seasonal – to operate, hence improving operational productivity. The ZD420 also provides helpful information to the user including type of ribbon and the amount of ribbon remaining in the cartridge.
Both printers offer both IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. They are also equipped with 512MB of flash memory and 256MB of SDRAM.
Both ZD410 and ZD420 are Link-OS-enabled, making them easier for store workers to use and IT to manage. With new status icons, users can instantly identify and rectify printer issues, whilst IT can remotely manage all printers through an easy-to-use web-based interface. The Virtual Devices application enables the simple replacement of non-Zebra printers.
Zebra OneCare services are available in three service levels to help maximise the availability and productivity of Zebra printers.
The ZD400-series printers are available across Australia now.
