About The ZT200 Series

Simplified Operation and Outstanding Value

The ZT200 series is designed to simplify and shorten servicing and consumable replacement time. The easy tool-less platen and print head removal makes it easy for operators to maintain the printer. The side loading supplies path enables simplified media and ribbon insertion and color coded media path clearly directs media and ribbon threading.

Compact Footprint Fits Where Space is at a Premium

TThe ZT200 Series printer’s compact design, when closed and opened, fits easily in constrained work areas. The ergonomic Bi-fold door requires only 4” (102mm) of door swing room. This reduces the printer height making it ideal for placement under a shelf or against another item.

Versatility at an Economical Price

Both of the ZT200 series printers feature the same attractive styling, are built on a common platform and share many of the same internal components. The ZT200 has a 300m ribbon capacity and the ZT230 can accommodate a 450m ribbon. The ZT200 handles a variety of media types and the optional peel, cutter and line take up offer additional flexibility for a variety of applications.
