ZT600 RFID Industrial Printers

Strong, smart and scalable RFID encoding

To stay ahead in today’s highly competitive manufacturing or transportation & logistics industries, you need technology solutions that will grow with your business. ZT600 Series printers combine industrial durability and user-friendly features with future-proof adaptability—including a factory- or field-installable RFID encoder—to meet your evolving needs for years to come. Gain greater visibility of your printing systems with Link-OS® applications and managed Operational & Asset Visibility Services (OVS/AVS), plus the ability to deepen your insight into your entire business with advanced RFID printing and encoding.

Zebra ZT600 Series RFID Industrial Printers/Encoders

Get unparalleled visibility and control with Link-OS®

At Zebra, we believe printers should be as intuitive, user-friendly and integrated as the smartphones and other devices that keep us connected outside of work. With intuitive Print DNA software, powered by Link-OS®, they are. This unique software platform gives you unprecedented, real-time visibility and control of your printing systems, on-site or remotely, with cloud-accessible applications that simplify everything from setup to management to troubleshooting.

Expand your view with industry-leading tracking technology

It only takes five minutes to upgrade the ZT610 and ZT620 to RFID encoding in the field. Once RFID-enabled, these printers are engineered to accurately and efficiently print and encode labels for today’s most advanced item-level tracking applications. Adaptive encoding enables media flexibility and simple RFID calibration, eliminating complex placement guides. An intuitive menu further reduces setup time. And Zebra’s RFID technology is certified on six continents, providing operational visibility and business insight across complex, multinational supply chains.

Get 24/7 reliability, even in the harshest environments

Built to deliver outstanding print quality under the most challenging industrial conditions, ZT600 Series printers virtually eliminate operational downtime due to printer failure. Their durable, all-metal designs hold up against extreme temperatures, dust, debris, moisture and worse. Guided instructions and feedback eliminate common errors and reduce manual adjustments for highly consistent printing. And high-quality print mechanisms and internal components deliver superior print quality and speed across the widest range of applications. A field-installable, full-width, guillotine-style cutter with catch tray is ideal for apparel tag applications

Reduce RFID Media Costs

Tags are spaced incredibly close together, with a distance (pitch) of 0.6"/16 mm or narrower on most RFID inlays—smaller than what other printer/encoders can accommodate. By spacing inlays closer, label converters use less material, which reduces your cost per label, requires fewer media roll changes and gives you faster printer/encoder throughput.

Customize your configuration with flexible connectivity

System setup, integration and updates are a snap with virtually every modern connectivity option. Standard connectivity includes Serial, USB, Gb Ethernet, USB Host and Bluetooth® with optional Parallel, 802.11a/c, Applicator Port, IPv6 and BTLE capabilities. You also get two open media slots for non-standard connectivity options, design failover connections and provisioning for future protocols.

Increase your efficiency with a user-friendly design

Every detail of the ZT600 Series was designed to put time back in your day. Immediately see status at a glance on the intuitive LCD interface or optional 4.3-inch full-color touch display. You can also quickly navigate printer settings with the user friendly icon menu system to change languages, printer settings, connectivity options and more—right from the display. Color-illuminated media and ribbon paths streamline routine maintenance. Adjustable media width and pressure toggles easily accommodate more applications. And onboard sensors, diagnostics and help resources empower you to manage issues without having to call in support.
