ZD420 Spec Sheet: 4-Inch Thermal Transfer

SPECIFICATION SHEET
ZD420 DESKTOP THERMAL TRANSFER PRINTER
ZD420 4-Inch Thermal Transfer Printer
A NEW LEVEL OF EASE OF USE, APPLICATION
FLEXIBILITY, MANAGEMENT SIMPLICITY AND TCO
The ZD420 delivers features and functionality that take deployment and management simplicity, ease-of-use, application flexibility
and total cost of ownership (TCO) to a new level in this printer class. As the next generation in Zebra’s thermal transfer desktop line,
the ZD420 replaces Zebra’s popular GK420t. You get Zebra’s easy to use clamshell design combined with an intuitive interface.
Field-installable connectivity and media handling options allow you to purchase what you need today, yet easily add new features
on site to meet tomorrow’s needs. The ZD420 runs Link-OS® and is supported by our powerful Print DNA suite of applications,
utilities and developer tools that deliver a superior printing experience through better performance, simplified remote manageability
and easier integration. The ZD420 — when ease of use, flexibility and management simplicity matter.
Multiple connectivity options
With multiple connection options, you can connect the ZD420 to
your existing wired and wireless networks, or directly to any PC.
The ZD420 comes standard with USB and USB Host. You can also
choose optional Ethernet or serial and a dual wireless radio that
offers the very latest wireless options, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and MFi certified
Bluetooth 4.1, which enables printing from any iOS device. And using
the included Print Touch tag (NFC), users can simply tap a compatible
mobile device on the ZD420 to pair and print — as well as instantly
access Zebra’s extensive knowledge base of how-to videos.
Sharp 300 dpi printing
With 300 dpi printing, you can support more applications. The high
image quality enables printing of small 2D labels or labels that require
graphics, such as a logo or icon. And if you don’t need 300 dpi
printing today, you can easily change in the field using an accessory
kit as your application needs evolve.
Movable sensor for comprehensive media compatibility
EASY TO USE — PRACTICALLY NO TRAINING REQUIRED
New at-a-glance five LED icons take
the guesswork out of printer status
A three-button user interface with five LED status icons replaces the
typical single button/single light interface common in desktop printers.
There’s no guesswork involved — users can instantly see what’s
needed to keep printers up and running, from replenishing media to
resolving printer issues.
DEPLOYMENT AND APPLICATION FLEXIBILITY
Backwards compatibility with virtually any existing printer
With the ZD420, whether you are currently using a Zebra or competitive
printer, you’ll be able to use the same label formats and applications
you’re using today. The ZD420 supports both EPL and ZPL printer
languages. And with on printer Virtual Devices, part of Zebra’s Print
DNA suite of tools and utilities, the ZD420 can use languages normally
associated with other printer brands.
While Zebra Certified Printer Supplies provide optimal printer
performance, the ZD420’s movable media sensor lets you use virtually
any media from any manufacturer, giving you the flexibility to utilize
supplies you may have on hand or continue to utilize any existing
supplies provider.
EASY TO MANAGE
Easily manage all your printers — all from a single location
The ZD420 supports Zebra Link-OS, a one-of-a-kind enterprise
printer operating system that makes it easier than ever to manage
and troubleshoot your networked printers from one remote location.
With optional Printer Profile Manager Enterprise, you can manage
one printer, a group of specific printers or all printers anywhere
in the world. Instantly discover every ZD420 printer on your
network — there’s no need to walk through the facility to locate,
configure or troubleshoot printers. And an intuitive browser-based
interface lets you see printer status at a glance, complete with
information that allows you to quickly triage printer issues to prevent
or minimize downtime.

Seamless integration with your device management system
Lower your costs with a high capacity ribbon
With our MDM Connectors, you can easily integrate networked
ZD420 printers into your AirWatch or SOTI MobiControl device
management system.
Intelligent dual-ribbon handling allows the ZD420 to accept either
74 m/244 ft. or high capacity 300 m/984 ft. ribbons. The 300 m ribbon
reduces ribbon changes by 75 percent for fewer workflow disruptions.
And since the high capacity ribbon costs less per meter than the
standard ribbon, you’ll also save on the cost of supplies.
Easily configure non-networked printers
The USB Host port makes it easy to connect to all your external devices,
including keyboards and scanners, and can also be utilized to upgrade
printer firmware automatically and set up new printer configurations.
Maximize uptime with Zebra Visibility Services
If you’re still tracking your printers manually, then you are likely missing
out on information that could save you money. With Zebra, you can
choose powerful visibility service options that deliver critical insight
into the information you need to prevent printer downtime. Our Asset
Visibility Service (AVS) provides the basic health information and
proactive steps required to keep your ZD420 printers up and running —
all for just pennies a day. The full-featured Operational Visibility Service
(OVS) allows you to monitor just about any aspect of your Zebra printer,
as well service and repair status. See the current status and disposition
of all of your printers, printers at a specific site, specific printer models
or a specific printer — and much more.
INNOVATIVE FEATURES FOR THE LOWEST TCO
Zebra Print DNA – transforming printers from the inside
Print DNA is the genetic code that injects business-catalytic
capabilities into our Link-OS printers through its unique combination
of innovative applications, utilities and developer tools. The result is
a superior printing experience through better performance, simplified
remote manageability and easier integration.
Tidier and safer installations
When you choose the optional power supply accessory, the power
supply and all but one power cord are hidden from view, improving
aesthetics as well as worker and customer safety.
Consistently exceptional Zebra Certified Supplies
Printing supplies can impact everything from printhead lifespan to
operational efficiency. That’s why we design, produce and rigorously
pretest our own line of thermal printing supplies to ensure consistent,
optimized performance in your Zebra printer — and peace of mind
for you. For industry-leading quality, service and thermal printing
expertise, choose Zebra Certified Supplies.
Protect your investment with an affordable service plan
Without a service plan, a single repair can cost more than the printer
and can take weeks to complete — but comprehensive service plans
are too costly, offering excessive coverage your desktop printers
simply don’t need. Now, Zebra OneCare SV provides the right level
of service at the right price, providing two years of coverage for
normal wear and tear, double the standard warranty coverage,
priority turnaround times at the depot and more — all for a tiny
fraction of the cost of a single repair.
Add new features right on site for superior future-proofing
If you need new communication or media handling options in the
future, no problem — the printer you buy today can support tomorrow’s
needs. The modular, field upgradable design allows you to add serial
or Ethernet connectivity, 300 dpi support, plus a peeler or a cutter,
right on site — no need to send the ZD420 to a service depot.
THE ZD420 — WHEN EASE OF USE, FLEXIBILITY AND MANAGEMENT SIMPLICITY MATTER.
