Zebra® ZD500R™ UHF RFID Printer

Zebra ZD500R™
UHF RFID Printer
Advanced features in a compact, easy-to-use device
Ideal for these applications
The ZD500R extends Zebra’s broad
range of RFID printers by adding UHF
RFID printing and encoding to Zebra’s
line of industry-leading thermal desktop
printers. 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 instore exception tagging.
item-level exception tagging; instore tagging of returned goods
and display, promotional and
other items
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.
The printer can handle the most
demanding applications with standard
Zebra ZD500R UHF RFID Printer
features that include Parallel, Serial,
USB and Ethernet connectivity; large
memory; and Zebra programming
language. Options include cutter and
peeler, Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi®-certified
communications, and high-resolution
The ZD500R leverages Zebra’s new
Link-OS™ environment—Zebra’s
innovative software platform with
powerful applications that enhance
the capabilities of the printer, making
it significantly easier to integrate into
global operations and manage from any
Featuring the Link-OS Cloud Connect
application, the ZD500R can connect
to the Cloud directly and securely,
forwarding data from any port.
The Link-OS Print Touch™ app allows
users to pair the ZD500R to NFCenabled devices with a simple tap,
giving them immediate access to the
data they need, including Zebra how-to
videos and product support.
