Issue / Question
Can I erase sensitive information on a ZXP 9 K Panel?
How do I keep the negative image on a K Panel from being read after printing?
ZXP 9 Card Printer
Resolution / Answer
A user may not want to have readable information on the K-Panel ribbon after printing to avoid security issues. There is a driver setting that allows the used ribbon K-Panel to be distorted and thus become unreadable.
Normally, we can read the printed information of a card from the used ribbon.
The ribbon shows all printed information.
By using the K Panel Destruction feature, it allows a user to corrupt the used ribbon panel to become unreadable.
To enable K panel destruction (ZXP Series 9):
- From Printer Preferences, select the Black Panel (K) Optimization tab.
- Click the Advanced button for the Front or Back or both panels.
- Check the Enable K panel destruction box.
Here is the result. Now, the sensitive information is unreadable or erased.
