Zebra ZXP Series 7 Product Review
With the ability to produce a high-volume of cards whilst still maintaining high-quality, photo-like results gives the ZXP Series 7 ID card maker machine the upper-hand against other printers. Fast, stunning results every time and cards that are resistant to scratching, cracking and bending offers reliability and reassurance.
The ZXP Series 7’s colour dye sublimation/monochrome thermal-transfer printing combined with a resolution of 300 dpi allows the Series 7 to produce near-photographic quality images that are sharp, vibrant and of the highest quality. It is useful to note the edge-to-edge printing leaves a thin white border around the edge of the card.
The Zebra ZXP Series 7 comes complete with a two-year unlimited warranty on printer and printhead as standard.
The easy-to-follow 6-line LCD operator display with configurable soft keys makes operation simple. It will alert you when the ribbon needs replacing or if a clean of the printer is required. It can also be easily upgraded from single-sided to dual-sided in minutes.
With the simple step-by-step printer guide and installation disk, setting up the ZXP Series 7 is easy, quick and will have you printing cards in no time.
Complete with a Kensington physical lock slot, the ZXP Series 7 is not only reducing the risk of printer theft by allowing you to secure it to your desk but also has the option to upgrade to lockable enclosures and card feeders to add an additional level of security.
In addition to this, the Series 7 prints in such high-resolution, the images are almost photo-like, meaning businesses where identification is essential, can rely on their ID cards to help their security measures.
The Zebra ZXP Series 3 has the option of adding additional encoding features including Magnetic Stripe encoding, Smart card contact station for third-party external contact encoders and combined MIFARE contactless and Contact Encoder.
The ZXP Series 7 printer is a direct-to-card (DTC) model. DTC printing means the card design is taken from the ribbon and then printed directly onto the surface of the card which gives it a glossy professional finish.
The ZXP Series 7 works only with CR80 credit-card sized cards.
The Series 7 can produce medium to large batches of cards. In a typical 35 hour working week, it has the ability to print 7,875 full-colour (YMCKOK) dual-sided cards, 10,500 full colour (YMCKO) single-sided cards and a massive 48,125 monochrome single-sided cards.
With the ability to print large batches, the ZXP Series 7 can print a massive 1375 monochrome single-sided cards per hour, 300 full-colour (YMCKO) single-sided card per hour and 225 full-colour (YMCKOK) dual-sided cards. Please note, this is based on batch printing with USB connectivity, times may vary depending on the computer configuration.
Ethernet and USB connection are standard features with the ZXP Series 7, offering connections to both a network and a desktop to increase the flexibility of printing.
Standard USB/Ethernet ports and the browser-based Printer Manager helps you integrate printers into third-party applications as well as existing systems.
Bigger than the average printer, its exact dimensions are; 306mm (H) x 699mm (W) x 277mm (D), and it weighs 17.9kgs.
In the classic black and grey shades with the signature Zebra orange button, the ZXP Series 7 is larger than other models in the Zebra range, but with its near photographic print quality, it’s size reflects its power.
The next step is to think about ID card design software; we recommend EasyBadge Professional. EasyBadge Professional is an advanced ID card design software that gives the user complete control over how their card looks.
There is also the option to choose from one of four templates or switch to the creative mode and design a new card from scratch.
