Modes of Printing

Your ZD200 Series printer supports several modes and media configurations.
Mode
Description
Direct Thermal printing
Uses heat-sensitive media to print. (When setting this mode, use media that supports this mode of printing. See Determining Thermal Media Types.)
Thermal Transfer printing
Requires ribbon rolls to print. While printing, heat and pressure transfer ink from the ribbon to the media. (When setting this mode, use media that supports this mode of printing. See Determining Thermal Media Types.)
Standard tear-off mode
Allows you to tear off each label or to batch-print a strip of labels after the printer has printed.
Label dispense mode
If your printer has the optional label dispenser factory-installed, the dispenser can peel away the backing material from the label as it is being printed, and then print the next label.
Media cutting mode
If your printer has the optional media cutter factory-installed, the printer can cut the label liner between the labels, the receipt paper, or the tag stock.
Standalone operation
The printer can print an auto-running label format or form (programming based) without being directly connected to another device (such as a computer).
Shared network printing mode
Printers configured with factory-installed Ethernet (LAN) and WiFi interface options include an internal print server.
