A solution for ID card printing, the ZXP Series 9 Dual-Sided Printer from Zebra uses dye sublimation and thermal transfer processes to achieve 304 dpi color images. It first places the image onto a transfer film and then transfers that image onto the ID card, allowing for efficient printing that retains image quality. This printer applies film on both sides of the card in a single pass to achieve speeds of up to 180 cards per hour when set to average print coverage. It also uses standard size CR-80 cards, printing over-the-edge to ensure that there are no visible borders on any side.
A dual-sided lamination module is included with this version and can be used to increase the durability of your card and protect it against fading or scratches. The card feeder is used for input and holds approximately 150 cards at a time, while the output hopper on the side of the printer provides a 100-card capacity. A six-line LCD screen displays information about the printer and can be controlled via three buttons placed below it. Additional features include Kensington lock capability for those who want added security, as well as USB 2.0 and Ethernet connectivity.
This version comes with a magnetic stripe encoder that reads and writes data in standard ISO track data formats. It allows for both custom formats and direct binary to be used, giving the user full control over the encoded information. This printer also comes with a smart card encoder, working with both contact chips and contactless MIFARE chips that can be used to add another layer of security to your ID card.
