Zebra Technologies has launched the new ZT400 series printers, Zebra's latest mid-range printer offering that will replace all ZM series printers. The ZT400, like the current ZM, is intended to offer maximum feature flexibility to address a broad range of applications including those in harsh environments where adaptability is needed. As part of the new enhancements for the printer, the ZT400 will offer easier loading, simpler set up, increased connectivity options, Link-OS capabilities and on-pitch radio frequency identification (RFID) encoding.
Additional key functionality includes:
- Easy set up and integration
- Heightened print quality
- Improved printer up-time, reliability, and durability
- Intuitive console (user) interface
- Simplified serviceability and maintenance
A full list of product capabilities is available here.
User needs are changing and the ZT400 series was created in response to the increased trend of customers using distributed printing models. ZT400 Series printers are Link-OS enabled providing enhanced capabilities to monitor and manage the printer from any location. Because the printer can be centrally managed, the technical skill of its end users is minimal, which meets user demand for solutions that increase productivity. Expanded RFID capabilities also meet the growing need for enterprise insights by enabling greater tracking capabilities and visibility through RFID technology.
A versatile printer, the ZT400 prints a variety of different label formats on a range of different media types that serve the needs of the manufacturing, transportation & logistics, healthcare and retail industries. The durable printers can be deployed in hostile environments, such a manufacturing plant floor, where equipment experiences heavy wear.
The ZT400 Series will be made available throughout 2014 in all countries in which Zebra sells products, with immediate availability depending on the region. With the introduction of ZT400 Series printers, the existing ZM400, ZM600, RZ400 and RZ600 printers will be discontinued later in the year.
