Engineered for outstanding print quality

Like Zebra’s industrial printers, the ZD611 thermal transfer printer includes a media dancer to ensure maximum quality on every label and tag, regardless of print speed. Further boost print quality with the optional 300 dpi print resolution.

See printer status in color and change settings with a touch

Navigate easy-to-use menus and step-by-step wizards at a touch on the 4.3-inch, full-color LCD touch display, standard on the thermal transfer models. See status at a glance in color and troubleshoot with animations on the spot. The printers also feature media-loading and calibration guidance, and support stand-alone printing applications. Zebra touch displays are expertly designed and tested for toughness and reliability consistent with Zebra’s printer portfolio, including robust tolerance to temperature, humidity, dust and other environmental challenges.

Hassle-free integration

Backwards compatible with virtually any existing thermal printer

Integrate ZD611 printers into your existing fleet seamlessly. Continue to use the same label formats and applications you’re using today. They support EPL and ZPL printer languages and can emulate other languages associated with other brands using Zebra’s Print DNA Printer Emulations.

Comprehensive communication to connect your way

ZD611 printers can connect to your existing wired and wireless networks, or directly to any PC. Every ZD611 comes standard with Ethernet, USB 2.0 and USB Host, or add optional Serial or dual wireless radio with fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. Print from any Windows®, Android™ or iOS device, and integrate your ZD611 with Zebra’s printer setup mobile app using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). And with the included Print Touch tag (NFC), you can simply tap a compatible mobile device on a ZD611 to pair and print—as well as instantly access Zebra’s extensive knowledge base of how-to videos.

Innovative features that work for you
