ZT230 Industrial Printer

Zebra incorporated extensive customer feedback, as well as the legacy of our industry leading Stripe and S4M printers, to create the new ZT200 Series family of printers with elegant space-saving design, effortless setup, intuitive user operation, and ease of service and maintenance.


Designed specifically for customers based on extensive research about their printing requirements, the Zebra ZT230 printers are packed with features typically found in industrial barcode printers.

First, Zebra built a rugged, all-metal case that withstands wear and tear. Then they offered models that fit a wide variety of applications. Choose from direct thermal or thermal transfer print modes and 203 or 300 dpi print resolutions. Common connectivity options such as serial, parallel, and USB enable the printing of labels up to 6 inches per second, while some models accelerate transmission by integrating 10/100 Ethernet and/or wireless 802. 11a/b/g/n communications.

A small footprint and streamlined design enables easy integration into any environment, including manufacturing plants, warehouses, healthcare facilities, and retailers. So, valuable real estate isn’t wasted on a huge printer that’s inconveniently placed.
