Zebra ZD400 Series

Future-proof functionality

Ease of use and years of reliable label printing - Zebra ZD400 series printers impress with thoughtful innovations and advanced device architecture.

Starting with easy installation, Zebra ZD421 operation is designed for efficiency: local with 3 buttons and 5 LEDs that quickly inform about the current printer status, or web-based with advanced features and security settings. Network integration can be wired or via WLAN. Bluetooth is optionally available for use with mobile computers, with lightning-fast pairing via NFC.

Available as direct thermal or thermal transfer printers, the label printers of the Zebra ZD400 series offer numerous variants. The models with an innovative ink ribbon cassette with intelligent chip offer particularly simple ribbon changes. Optimized for use in the healthcare sector, the healthcare models can be cleaned not only with disinfectants but also by intensive UV irradiation thanks to a special and sealed surface.

The advanced media sensors detect a wide range of media formats, and the reliable print engine ensures fast and error-free printing of even large quantities of labels. The Zebra ZD421 label printer can also be used in mobile applications, the optional rechargeable battery provides energy for a whole work shift with maximum printing speed.
