Lowry Solutions introduces the new Zebra ZT600 Series Printers - ZT610 and ZT620

New Zebra ZT600 Series Industrial Printers – Durability with User-Friendly Integration

In industrial environments, barcode label and RFID printers require a completely different level of durability, performance, and capabilities. Printers often need to operate 24/7, produce consistent output at high volumes, and perform reliably in harsh conditions ranging from extreme temperatures to dusty and debris-laden environments.

However, industrial printers  should also have the intelligence and adaptability to easily integrate with many different systems, applications, and devices. These printers need the flexibility to be upgraded and evolve as business needs change and technology advances.

Fortunately, there’s a new development in industrial printing that brings together all of these capabilities: the ZT600 Series industrial printer from our partners at Zebra Technologies.

 

Zebra’s New Industrial Printers: The ZT600 Series

The new ZT600 Series is built on the legacy of Zebra’s Xi Series, which set the standard for ultra-rugged, durable, and reliable barcode and RFID printing. The ZT600 series combines the brawn of the Xi Series with the brains and next-generation adaptability needed to deliver a truly future-proof printing solution.

Here’s a breakdown of all the benefits and innovations the ZT600 Series brings to industrial printing applications.

24/7 Reliability in the Harshest Environments

Zebra’s ZT600 Series printers are built to withstand the most demanding industrial conditions and meet high-volume daily production needs with superior print quality and speed. They feature all-metal structural components, built-in thermal management, and high-quality print mechanisms and internal components.

Highly Adaptable, Future-Ready Design

ZT600 Series printers are available in 4” and 6” print widths with optional UHF RFID.

Micro-Consistent Printing for Top-Quality Small Labels

Highly precise registration and print line adjustment provide 600 dpi printing for labels as small as 3 mm. Each label is accurately printed, producing small labels perfect for circuit boards, microchips, and miniature components.

Comprehensive Connectivity for Flexible Configuration

ZT600 Series printers support an array of standard connectivity choices, including serial, USB, gigabit Ethernet, dual USB hosts, and Bluetooth®. Two open communication slots also offer additional connectivity options, including parallel, 802.11a/c, an applicator port, IPv6, and Bluetooth LE.

User-Friendly Design for Easy Day-to-Day Operation

One of the best innovations with the ZT600 Series is its simple and intuitive side loading of print media. Each printer’s interior illuminates the ribbon and media paths. The same paths change color when errors occur, so you can quickly locate and resolve any issues.

In addition, the color graphic display is highly visible, even from a distance, and features an intuitive icon menu and local language support. The display turns yellow if the printer is paused, or red if there’s an error. In the event of an error, the display offers QR codes with convenient links to videos to help users resolve printing issues.

Backwards Compatibility with Plug-and-Play Simplicity

The ZT600 Series is backwards compatible with Zebra Xi4 Series printers and their existing applications and label formats, as well as with existing printer languages such as Zebra, ZBL, and many non-Zebra languages.

Link-OS® for Easy Integration, Management, and Visibility

Zebra’s Link-OS operating system makes it easy to integrate your printers and manage and monitor them remotely. Cloud services provide secure access to critical printing operations from anywhere, at anytime. You can also monitor networked Link-OS printers from a single user-friendly browser interface that provides dashboards for system diagnostics, guided instructions, and feedback. Link-OS also provides applications to simplify printer updates and reconfiguration as needed.
