Features & Benefits
Multiple Connectivity Options
The ZT400 comes standard with Ethernet, Serial, USB, dual USB Host and Bluetooth 4.1. Add the optional dual-band wireless card with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for blazing fast and reliable wireless connections.
Built To Handle A Wide Range of Applications
You can count on the ZT400 Series to print a variety of different label formats on a variety of different media types. When RFID-enabled, the 4-inch ZT411 and 6-inch ZT421 can print and encode labels as small as 0.6 in./16 mm. And, the ZT411 can print up to 600 dpi for extremely crisp resolution. The ZT411 RFID, available in an on-metal version, is the only dedicated option for printing and encoding on-metal tags and labels.
Dual USB Host Ports For Added Flexibility
Dual USB Host ports allow you to directly connect a wide range of USB device types. Use a memory stick to replicate firmware, files and configurations, or easily print and transfer formats. Simplify data entry by simultaneously connecting a scanner and keyboard — with two host ports, there’s no need to plug and unplug peripherals.
Designed To Evolve With Your Needs
You can customize the ZT400 Series with a range of media handling options that can be easily installed in minutes. Two open media slots accommodate additional communication options. And, the open architecture, robust processing power and memory can support firmware upgrades and new Print DNA tools for years to come.
Large Color Touch Display Makes Operation A Snap
It’s easy to set up and use the ZT400 with its intuitive icon-based interface, including managing RFID settings. The 4.3-inch full-color touch display allows you to quickly navigate printer settings and create frequently used shortcuts. See color-coded alerts from a distance when the printer is paused or in an error state, so you instantly know what the printer needs to stay up and running.
Print And Encode With Ease
Adaptive encoding technology allows for excellent media flexibility and simple RFID calibration, eliminating complex placement guidelines. And, Zebra has globally certified its RFID technology on six continents to support deployments across complex, multinational supply chains.
On-metal RFID Option Enables Metal Asset Tagging
Zebra offers an optional version of the ZT411 for on-metal RFID tagging. This solution enables users to print and encode on-metal RFID labels such as Silverline that are designed to work on a variety of surfaces including IT assets, tools, equipment, returnable containers and other challenging surfaces. The ZT411 RFID On-metal Solution gives you greater flexibility that is globally available–including simple-to-install, field-upgradeable technology and 300 dpi print quality.
Rugged Durability For Demanding Applications
You can count on the ZT400 to serve your business for years. Its durable metal frame holds up in the most demanding environments, while a long life coating protects the printheads when printing in direct thermal mode, reducing the need to replace printheads. Ensure optimal print quality with the printhead element out detection feature. Every detail has been carefully designed and tested to deliver maximum uptime over the printer’s life.
