The ZC300 Single-Sided Card Printer from Zebra is a straightforward card printer designed for printing identity, membership, and credit/debit cards. It features integrated USB/Ethernet/Magnetic Stripe Encoder/LOCO connectivity for standalone printing. The printer allows you to print up to 200 YMCKO cards per hour and up to 900 monochrome cards in the same timeframe. The printing standards include a 300 dpi resolution and a 1006 x 640 pixel image size. You can auto-calibrate the ribbons and can choose any of the Zebra genuine ribbons, which are authenticated by the printer.
The printer features 100-card capacity input and output hoppers. Additionally, you can manually feed the cards and view status via an LED bezel. The three tricolor printer status indicator lights allow you to easily determine the status of your cards. The ZC300 includes a Kensington secure lock slot, printer host authentication, and data encryption for increased privacy and security.
The dye-sublimation and thermal transfer direct-to-card printing method, along with the full-color or monochrome options and edge-to-edge printing available on the CR-80 media models, allow you to customize the cards easily. The ISO 7811 magnetic stripe encoder supports new and pre-encoded tracks, high and low coercivity, and stripe up and down options. The ZC300 printer is compatible with Windows and Windows Server, Linux Ubuntu, and Apple iOS 10.2 operating systems.
