The Zebra P330i is a single-sided, full color card printer with i Series RFID technology, a user friendly LCD display, feeder and print viewing, and many other new features designed for mission critical applications. The reliable Zebra P330i is made for when you can’t afford to be down.
Innovative Design Improvements
A new, patent-pending card feeder system provides reliability via simplicity, using the weight of the card stack itself to ensure consistent feeding. The new Zebra P330 i supports the range of card thickness used worldwide, printing on cards as thin as 10-mil or as thick as 60-mil proximity cards. The new design allows the card feeder capacity to be increased from 100 cards to 220 cards (30-mil) with the simple addition of two plastic extension pieces and three screws. This option increases user efficiency, reducing the need for user interaction. Users can load up to 200 cards at a time without having to stop the printing process.
The Zebra P330i’s new, patent-pending printhead assembly has been redesigned with a “floating gimbal” action that automatically adjusts to uneven card surfaces, delivering a more consistent image across the card. For user convenience, the new assembly provides easier ribbon loading and printhead cleaning.
A number of encoding options will soon be available with the Zebra P330i. Magnetic stripe encoding and a smart card encoding station will be available as factory-installed options. With these options, users can encode magnetic stripes and encode/read three types of smart card technology: ISO 7816 contact smart chips (the most common contact smart card standard), MIFARE ® and iCLASS ® contactless smart chips.
In addition to the USB interface included in all configurations of the Zebra P330i, Zebra also offers built-in Ethernet connectivity as a factory-installed or field upgradeable option. Based on a next-generation 10Base-T/100Base-TX design, the printer can be administered remotely from any location using ZebraNet ® Print Server utility software. In the future, “one-cable” encoding will be offered via Ethernet, allowing remote printing and remote encoding.
User convenience features include an LCD display, translucent covers for print viewing and a patented cleaning cartridge. Advanced RFID technology makes Zebra P330 i printer configuration quick and easy, with automatic ribbon type detection and correct setup for quality card printing. The integrated card output hopper slides back into the enclosure when not in use to avoid being lost or damaged.
For easy setup, the i Series Windows™ drivers work with Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP to provide plug-and-play operation. As with all i Series printers, the Zebra P330 i utilizes Zebra TrueColours ribbons. Zebra color formulation produces superior print quality and a more accurate range of color reproduction.
The Zebra P330i prints a card in 25 seconds, single-sided, full color, 16MB standard memory, new drive belt-driven angled feeder (100 30-mil card capacity), USB interface with optional built-in Ethernet, load-n-go i Series intelligent ribbon
