Description

The Zebra GK420d monochrome desktop direct thermal label printer comes equipped with Ethernet and USB ports, prints 5″ per second in black at 203 dpi, and can be used to print labels, tags, receipts, or other media up to 4.09″ wide. Direct thermal printers use heat instead of ink and are typically smaller, quieter, faster, and more energy-efficient than dot-matrix printers. The GK420d has a maximum print speed of 5″ per second at 203 dpi (dots per inch) and prints labels up to 39” long. The 32-bit processor combined with the 8 MB of SDRAM memory and 4 MB of flash memory offers fast first label printing with extensive media graphics. The Ethernet port enables the printer to be connected to a wired computer network (Ethernet cord sold separately). A USB port and an included USB cable provide connectivity to a computer or another device. EPL and ZPL programming languages are standard.

The GK420d printer’s double-walled casing is made of ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), which helps resist impact. An open-access design facilitates media loading. A reflective sensor allows the printer to identify the gaps, holes, notches, or black marks between labels to print the labels accurately. A transmissive sensor enables it to detect when a roll of media has run out. The auto-detectable power adapter can accept AC power between 100 and 240 volts. This printer is suitable for use with black bar, black mark, continuous, continuous receipt, die-cut, fanfold, gap, notched, perforated, receipt, roll-fed, tag, or tag stock media (all sold separately). The maximum outside diameter for rolls is 5″.

Label printers, also known as label makers, can be used to print labels, tags, receipts, and other similarly sized media. Direct thermal and thermal transfer label printers use heat instead of ink to print on coated thermal media. A parallel, serial, or USB port allows a label printer to be connected to a computer. An Ethernet port or wireless capabilities may enable it to be connected to a computer network. Label printers can be used in a variety of commercial environments, including warehouses, laboratories, retail stores, health care facilities, and shipping and receiving facilities.

Zebra Technologies manufactures barcode, receipt, kiosk, and radio-frequency identification (RFID) printers and accessories. The company, founded in 1969, is headquartered in Lincolnshire, IL.
