It is designed for applications where print speed and quality are critical.

  • A compact footprint makes the ZD500 ideal for applications where space is limited.
  • Near Field Communications (NFC) technology allows users to pair smart devices with a tap for quick troubleshooting.
  • Zebra’s Link-OS environment gives users access to innovative software applications for intuitive use and management:
  • Securely and directly interact with the Cloud for printing and device management via Cloud Connect.
  • Edit and manage one printer, batches of printers of all Link-OS printers across their network – anywhere in the word – with Profile Manager.
