If your organization has used a Zebra ZXP Series 1 ID printer in the past, you know the value and power of this low-volume, single-sided printer. The Zebra ZC100 LT replaces its Zebra ZXP Series 1 printer predecessor, offering more advanced security features, one of the slimmest and versatile housing designs on the market, and field-upgradable configuration options. With its manual card feeder guide, you can easily print single cards or multi-card batch printing - whatever your application demands. Unlike most ID badge machines in its class, the ZC100 LT printer boasts significantly quieter operation, so it won't interrupt others in the office when credentials are being made. Its sleek, compact construction makes this printer one of the smallest footprints available today. Best of all, the ZC100 LT prints 200 single-sided cards an hour - that's 55 more cards an hour than the ZXP Series 1 printers for virtually the same price!

Product Features

  • Simplicity at its finest
    Card printer operation simply doesn't get any easier than the ZC100 LT. This direct-to-card printer is a tiny 8.6 pounds - that's three pounds less than the Zebra ZXP Series 1 ID card printer with higher throughput and a more modular design that fits in almost any office space, large or small. With its plug-and-play set up, your Zebra ZC100 LT printer will be generating professional-grade credentials in no time.
  • Innovative, advanced security
    The LT version of the Zebra ZC100 card printer offers physical security features, including a Kensington lock slot, optional printer host authentication (password protection), and government-level encryption to protect sensitive information from counterfeiters.
  • Faster, more agile printing speeds
    Engineered for speed, the ZC100 LT printer surpasses the Zebra ZXP Series 1 printer, producing 200 brilliantly colorful ID cards an hour instead of just 145. You'll also enjoy a significantly larger card-loading capacity of up to 100 cards in the auto-adjusting input hopper and a 100-card output hopper for convenient, worry-free card printing. In addition, the ZC100 LT offers manual card feeding with the LED bezel to effortlessly guide you through the printing process for single ID cards or multi-card batch printing.
  • Quiet operation and dependable performance
    With standard USB connectivity and a compact desktop design, you can set your printing process in motion quickly and conveniently with the Zebra ZC100 LT card printer. Although this super-quiet, portability-friendly card maker doesn't feature a digital display, it's well-tested and created to be an intuitive ID badge maker, so users know can easily understand what the printer needs.
  • Exceptional 300 dpi, direct-to-card print quality
    When it comes to accuracy and precision, you can count on the ZC100's 300 dpi resolution to design and create customized, professional-looking ID cards in just minutes. With a low cost-per-card, the ZC100 LT printer delivers exceptional quality at a budget-conscious price. Its dye-sublimation printing with color and monochrome ribbons consistently produces vivid colors, radiant images, and crisp text/barcodes.
  • Integrated security
    The Zebra ZC100 LT printer includes built-in password protection - complete with administrator and user authentications - to strengthen the level of scalable security for your printing program.
  • Optional encoding
    Whether you're printing employee photo ID badges, access control cards, gift cards, or membership cards, choose the encoding option that's best for your organization's card issuance needs. Add a "swipe-and-go" high-coercivity or low-coercivity magnetic stripe when cards are printed. You can also use the ZIP Pocket with our Add a Zebra Software Development Kits (SDKs) which integrates seamlessly with third-party contactless encoders to create "pass-through" contactless cards.
  • Optional Ethernet & WiFi connectivity
    A USB connection comes standard on the ZC100 LT card printer. But you don't have to limit your program to a single badging printing hub. Include Ethernet and configure with your ZC100 to run your ID printing application safely and securely over your network.
