ZE500R RFID PRINT ENGINE
ENGINEERED FOR EASE OF USE AND SERVICING
Performance leaders in mission-critical RFID printing applications, these reliable print engines with RFID technology empower you with an integrated solution for identifying packages, cases and pallets. The ZE500R embeds a fully integrated ThingMagic RFID Reader/Encoder and supports the ability to print and encode short pitch item level tags, chip based serialization and block permalocking of user memory.
Zebra’s enhanced RFID-ready OEM print engines are ideal for high-volume industrial applications for manufacturing, shipping, receiving and more.
Smart Design and Features Give You Added Control and Capabilities
Featuring a broad range of connectivity, the ZE500 Series includes standard Serial, Parallel, USB and wired Ethernet—along with optional wireless capabilities—making it easy to integrate into your network.
Easy to Set Up
The large, graphical display with simple five-button menu can be rotated or remotely located up to two meters with an optional kit, so it is easily accessible even for unusual mounting orientations. The applicator IO is the same for 5V and 24V—just simply switch jumpers to convert.
Immediate Access to Support
An integrated QR Code gives you quick access to support and helpful how-to videos on topics ranging from changing the ribbon or drive system to changing the printhead and more.
Customize Print Quality Settings
Maximize print and image quality with the easy-to-use outboard cam system that adjusts the printhead to the platen roller on all three different axes—no matter what media is in use. And, two printhead toggles help maximize pressure dispensation across the printhead so you can dial in even further on print quality.
Simple to Maintain and Service
Easily remove all three platen, pinch and peel rollers in minutes from the front of the print engine without the need to remove the ZE500 print engine from the print-and-apply system. Captured fasteners eliminate lost hardware, and the pinch and peel rollers are now the same part to eliminate confusion and misinstallation.
Quickly access internal components via a hinged cage system that swings open wide for fast, simple maintenance. The innovative, extended-life modular drive system is engineered to be easily removed via only three screws and can be used as a spare module or rebuilt on a bench top. Change belts or alter resolution from 203 dpi to 300 dpi or vice versa in minutes. No need to shut down your operations for simple changes or maintenance.
