Zebra Card Software Makes Card Printing Easy

Profile Manager Enterprise
Profile Manager Enterprise

Whether your printers are in a single location, in multiple buildings throughout a campus environment or in multiple facilities across the country or around the world, you need access to update and manage them. If your technicians need physical access to configure, update or troubleshoot your printers, management becomes a very costly and time-consuming effort.

Change the game with Zebra Printer Profile Manager Enterprise, part of our Print DNA suite of tools, which now includes support for ZC100 and ZC300 Series Card Printers.

  • Supports Java, Objective C, C# and VB

Zebra Card SDK for ZXP Series 7, 8, and 9 Card Printers

The Zebra ZMotif SDK for ZXP Series 7 and Series 8 and 9 printers allows software developers to integrate card printing functionality into third party and custom applications by directly controlling specific features and functions of the printer.

The Card ZMotif SDK contents include:

  • ZMotif SDK and programming documentation (job command information, coding sequence and sample code) and DLL libraries for:
    • Printer and graphics functions
    • Encoding with an integrated contact and contactless PC/SC compliant smart card chip encoder
    • New SmartCard Reader SDK specially to support the optional integrated UHF encoder printer option. Supports both 32 and 64 bit systems
    • New Encoding Over Ethernet (EOE) SDK to enable both Contact encoding, MIFARE, and UHF encoding over Ethernet functionality. Supports both 32 and 64 bit systems.
  • New Card Printer SDK Demo Tool utility/application used as a ZXP Series 7 and Series 8 and 9 printer evaluation tool to verify and exercise various Card SDK printer functions and features available in the SDK.
  • ZXP Printer Software Emulator Application – A software printer preview tool that emulates a ZXP Series 7 or Series 8 and 9 printer. Used in testing and validating print jobs sent via the Zebra Windows® driver or Card SDK commands to the ZXP Series 7 and 8 printers.

Zebra Card SDK for ZXP Series 1 and 3

The Zebra ZXP Series 1 and ZXP Series 3 SDK allows software developers to integrate custom applications and card printer commands into a card print application, and directly control specific features and functions of the printer.

The ZXP Series 1 and ZXP Series 3 SDK download contents include:

  • Programming documentation (job and printer command information, coding sequence and sample code) and DLL libraries for:
  • Printer and graphics functions
  • Encoding with an integrated contact and contactless PC/SC compliant smart card chip encoder
  • ZGT/PGT (Zebra General Tool), a printer utility/application used to verify and exercise various ZXP Series 3 SDK printer functions and features available in the SDK.
  • A ZXP Series 1 and ZXP Series 3 SDK reference manual describing the programming functions that control operations and deliver data for Zebra card printers.

Zebra Card SDK for Value/Performance Card Printers

The Zebra Value/Performance Class SDK gives software developers the ability to quickly integrate commands into a card application for direct control of specific features and functions of Zebra's Value and Performance card printers. This SDK supports Zebra P330i/P430i and P110i/P120i card printers.

Zebra's Value/Performance class card printer SDK comes with:

  • Programming documentation (command information, coding sequence and sample codes) and DLL's for:
    • Printer and graphics functions
    • Contact encoding with an integrated GemCore® contact encoder
    • Contactless encoding with the integrated GemProx® MIFARE® encoding module
  • An application to verify that the contact and contactless encoder in your printer is functioning correctly. This application was written using the very same information and sample code in this SDK.
  • An SDK reference manual describing the programming functions that control operations and deliver data for Zebra card printers.
  • An application programming interface (API) to provide functions to access card printer features.
