Migrate from G to Z with the new ZD421
The latest printer in Zebras ZD400 series, the ZD421, builds on the legacy of Zebras GK Series printers, offering you the functions and capabilities of its predecessor, plus much more. The next-generation ZD421 delivers advanced features for a new era of intelligence and forward flexibility, whilst not losing the simplicity and reliability which has made the Zebra desktop printers the industry stand.

Advanced Features
The ZD421 offers new, advanced features that make it stand apart. It includes a new, more intuitive user interface, powerful architecture and field-upgradeable wireless kit with WIFI and Bluetooth. It also has a new media guide and media handling designs that make daily operation even easier.

Multiple Models for Ease of Use
Available in direct thermal, thermal transfer, healthcare and ribbon cartridge models, the ZD421 meets a wide variety of application requirements. The ZD421 is the only thermal printer to offer a ribbon cartridge model. It takes only a few seconds to remove and load a new ribbon, in a fool-proof, one-way, first time every time instant. This makes it ideal for environments where multiple users look after the printer, as it removes the time consuming & fiddly ribbon changes that are often plagued by inserting them wrong and calls to IT support for assistance.

Future Proof for Emerging Technologies
The ZD421 is designed to handle advancing technology. Featuring an innovative architecture, its engineered to power future printing. In comparison, its 30% more powerful than the ZD420 Series and 700% more than the GK Series. This lets you run more tasks, perform more operations simultaneously, maintain security and be ready for whats next.

Backwards Compatible
Deploy your ZD421 into your existing printer fleet with confidence. Use the same label formats and applications youre using today. It supports both EPL and ZPL printer languages, and can emulate languages normally associated with other printer brands using Zebras Print DNA tool, Virtual Devices.

Your existing label rolls and thermal transfer ribbons are compatible with the ZD421, and itll also accommodate larger ribbons up to 300m long on a 1 core for extended ribbon change intervals.

The ZD421 is the ideal replacement for Zebras discontinued printers, such as:
  • TLP-2844
  • LP-2844
  • GC420D
  • GC420T
  • GK420D
  • GK420T
  • GX420D
  • GX420T
  • GX430D
  • GX430T
  • ZD420

Integrate your ZD421 onto your existing wired and wireless networks, or connect it directly to any PC. Every ZD421 comes standard with USB and USB Host, and offers optional Ethernet, Serial and dual wireless radio with fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. Print from any Windows, Android or iOS device. Get your ZD421 up and running with Zebras printer setup mobile app using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Use the included Print Touch tag (NFC) to simply tap to pair and print.

Movable Sensor for Comprehensive Media Compatibility
The ZD421 now features a movable media sensor, opening up the possibility of using virtually any media for greater flexibility across a variety of use cases.
