Evolis Zenius Classic Single Sided ID Card Printer - Fire Red Description

Zenius is the one-stop solution to print high-quality single-sided cards, in monochrome or color, and encode technology cards, singly or in runs, for a variety of applications:

  • Employee badges
  • Access control badges
  • Payment cards
  • Transportation passes, and more.
Zenius comes with two major innovations:
  • Evolis Premium Suite®, software, at the core of all new Evolis printers. This software architecture supplies the Print Center, a printing and configuration system that monitors all communications between the printer and the user.

    The printer's operation can be managed entirely right from the user s interface and through pop-up notifications on the printing status, ribbon availability and maintenance tasks. This Printer Manager also offers direct access to the Evolis Web-based Support Center, available on a 24/7 basis.
  • The Evolis High Trust® range of consumables is specifically designed to deliver premium graphic performances and ease of use. Installing the ribbon cassette is a simple one-step process and thanks to a chip, Zenius instantly identifies the ribbon type and configures all settings accordingly.
