Operate with Ease
Interact at a touch with the 4.3-inch, full-color LCD touch display. Their easy-to-use menus feature step-by-step setup wizards, troubleshooting animations, media-loading and calibration guidance, and support standalone printing applications. The display also changes color to clearly show printer status at a glance. And, color-coded touch points guide users through media handling tasks for speedy media changes. Zebra touch displays are designed and tested for toughness and reliability, including robust tolerance to temperature, humidity, dust and other environmental challenges.
Use the same label formats and applications you’re using today. These printers support both EPL and ZPL printer languages, and can emulate languages normally associated with other printer brands using Zebra’s Print DNA Printer Emulations.
Integrate your ZD621R or ZD611R to your existing wired and wireless networks or connect them directly to any PC.
