EVOLIS ZENIUS Card Printer
Single-sided card printing in high-quality singly or in small runs
Setting new standards in card printing!
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:
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.
Zenius is available in two versions :
- The Classic line : USB only, no encoding option – for those who only need to print cards on a single computer
- The Expert line : USB and Ethernet, with multiple encoding options available (factory mounted or on-site integration) – for those who need to share their printer on a local network or to issue badges with encoding technologies (mag, smart contact and /or contactless
