Whether you’re printing employee badges to ensure security in your facility, or guest passes and membership cards for your customers, single-side card printing plays an important role in your business. You want a card printer that will minimize the impact on your operational efficiency and workforce productivity — a card printer that’s easy to set up, easy to use and easy to manage. You can have it all with the ZC100.
You get elegant engineering for game changing simplicity. The ZC100 is plug and play, right out of the box — no configuration needed. The ingenious card feeder self-adjusts to card thickness. The new driver offers a graphical user interface that brings a new level of simplicity to managing the printing process and the look and feel of your printed cards. There is only one way the ribbon can be inserted into the printer for fool-proof ribbon changes — and with smart chips in the ribbons, you’re sure to always change ribbons before they are spent, avoiding needless printer downtime. Need to manually insert a card? The light pipe takes away any confusion, guiding users on where and how to insert the card. And with support for many diverse languages, the ZC100 is ready for deployment in any part of the world.
The ground-breaking ‘fits everywhere’ design is right at home anywhere in your business — from offices and back rooms to customer-facing areas. The slimmest profile and lowest clearance requirements allow the ZC100 to fit practically anywhere, provides greater deployment flexibility. Security features enable no-risk card printing in public-facing spaces, from a printer cover lock that prevents the theft of card stock and printed cards, government grade encryption to protect the most sensitive data and printer-to-host authentication to prevent unauthorized applications or mobile devices from printing cards. The optional magnetic stripe encoder and integration kit for contactless encoders provide more card printing flexibility. Printing speed is up to 30% faster than the Zebra predecessor, the ZXP Series 1 card printer, so workers spend less time printing and more time on more crucial tasks — and customers spend less time waiting for cards to print. And Print DNA provides complementary printer software that makes it easier than ever to integrate card printing into your apps, design cards and support your ZC100 card printers.
