Zebra’s New Baby Printer the Zebra ZD410
No, Zebra Inc haven’t developed technology to print babies – but they have launched the new Zebra ZD410 – the baby in their range. It’s the smallest desktop label printer Zebra make, replacing the long serving Zebra LP2824. Here’s our short review of it:
What’s so special about the Zebra ZD410?
- It’s small. Did I mention that already? So small that it will fit on any desktop or counter. Perfect when size really does matter.
- It’s fast – up to 150mm (six inches) per second.
- It’s easy to use – it’s direct thermal so there’s no ribbon to change. – Look how wide it opens.
- It’s got a lot of cabled and wireless connections. Choose from USB, Serial, Wifi, Bluetooth and Ethernet.
- It’s multilingual (in printer terms) – speaking the printer language of it’s rivals. That means it can directly replace rival brands.
- You can plug an Zebra supplied keyboard/display unit into the printer, which you can use (after downloading a label format) instead of a computer.
- It has a movable gap sensor – which means you can print dumbbell labels, labels with notches at the edge and labels with off centre blackmarks.
It’s a shame it doesn’t use the ZBI 2 programming language, but it’s an entry level printer – and an extremely capable one at that.
Use the Zebra ZD410 for printing labels, tags and tickets that have a relatively short label life, due to the printers Direct Thermal capability. By short life, it lasts months rather than years and certain thermal labels will discolour in the sun or if exposed to heat. Ask us for some test labels if you’re unsure.
Another thing to note is the print width – just 56mm or 2.2 inches. Don’t let the size limit you, we supply a wide range of labels that will fit the ZD410.
