Space Saving Simplicity
Designed for applications where space is at a premium, the compact ZD500R offers simple, one-touch printing and encoding, straightforward loading, and automatic RFID calibration, making it ideal for applications where technical support staff is not available, such as retail in-store exception tagging.
Powerful RFID Features
The printer supports both direct thermal and thermal transfer printing and is compatible with inlays from all leading suppliers. The ZD500R can be used with a variety of RFID labels and tags from small, item-level hang tags to large case and pallet labels. By encoding RFID inlays that are spaced closer together, the ZD500R enables lower media costs, less media waste and fewer roll changes.
Future Proofed for Tomorrow’s Applications
Since it is built with the same innovative technology as Zebra’s industry-leading RFID printer/encoders, existing applications can be easily adapted for use with the ZD500R. The ZD500R supports next generation inlays and offers 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless and Bluetooth® connectivity.
