Overview of Zebra ZT200 Series Commercial Printers

Zebra incorporated extensive customer feedback, as well as the legacy of its Stripe® and S4M™ printers, to create the new ZT200™ series printers, which feature space-saving design, effortless setup, intuitive user operation, and ease of service and maintenance. Whether you are adopting barcode technology for the first time or upgrading existing printer models, the ZT200 series is the right choice for a variety of labeling applications. This innovative new printer provides many user benefits.The ZT200 series offers a streamlined design and smaller footprint that takes up less physical space than the Stripe and S4M models. ZT200 series printers require minimal operator training and benefit from tool-less standard component maintenance and a durable design to minimize service. Your IT staff will appreciate the backwards compatibility, since it allows for new printers to be up and running with minimal time and effort.The ZT200 series has been designed for ease of use, versatility and outstanding value.

Ideal for These Applications

Manufacturing / work-in-process, product ID/serial numbers, packaging labels, receiving/put-away labeling

Transportation & Logistics / order picking/packing, shipping/receiving, cross-docking, compliance labeling

Healthcare / orders, specimen labels, asset-tracking, unit-of-use labeling

Retail / shelf-labeling, shipping, returns, item tags

Government / asset-tracking, logistics labeling, warehousing
