Advancing the ZE500 Series, ZE511 and ZE521 print engines build on this proven legacy with faster print speeds, performance-enhancing capabilities and evolving intelligence that make them stand apart. Added features such as the 4.3-inch, full-color LCD touch screen make operation easier. Add field-installable RFID printing and encoding capabilities featuring Zebra’s exclusive technology and new algorithms for easy calibration and media flexibility. The 4-inch ZE511 and 6-inch ZE521 deliver rugged durability to push the limits. Engineered without the need for cooling fans, their external cabinets are designed to resist debris and water ingress making them ideal in dusty environments or where water may be splashed.
The ZE511 and ZE521 are incredibly easy to integrate and use. Deploy them anywhere with setup tools, wizards and emulation capabilities. The large color touch screen and intuitive user interface make setup and operation easy with minimal training. Mount the screen where it’s convenient for you, up to two meters from the print engine, and rotate the screen to match your space. See printer status at a glance, make expedited settings changes and access support.
