Evolis Zenius System Details

Compact and lightweight, the Evolis Zenius Classic single-sided ID card system is ideal for low-volume and on-demand printing. You'll be up and running in just minutes with its intuitive user interface and easy-to-load supplies. The Evolis Zenius Classic single-sided card system includes everything your need to start printing cards, including a color ribbon, cards, ID software, and a webcam.

Evolis Zenius Classic Printer

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    Just like a traditional office desktop printer, the Evolis Zenius plastic card printer is easy to install and operate. The LED control panel provides empty feeder, cleaning, and end-of-ribbon notifications. The included Evolis Premium Suite® for Windows software includes a printer driver, Print Center for printer management and setup, and Printer Manager for two-way communication.

  • Print single or batch cards
    You have the flexibility to choose how you print with the Evolis Zenius plastic card printer. It has a 50-card capacity input hopper for batch card printing and a single card feeder at the front of the printer to product ID cards on-the-fly.

  • Enjoy contemporary, lightweight design
    The Evolis Zenius is available in two color options: fire red or grey/brown. This quiet and compact printer can easily fit on any desktop, be it a welcome desk, a sales counter, or an office setting.

  • Replace consumables quickly and easily
    Replacing the cards and ribbon cassettes in an easy one-step process with the help of the Evolis Zenius' front-loading card feeder and output tray and top-loading printer ribbon cartridge. The Evolis Zenius also automatically identifies the ribbon type and configure the settings with the help of an integrated chip.

  • Ethernet connectivity and/or card encoding - Optional
    See the Evolis Zenius Expert System for additional printer features, including Ethernet connectivity for operating your printer over a network and magnetic stripe and smart card encoding options.
