New Zebra ZT231 replaces the ZT230 label printers

With a durable metal frame, the ZT231 is ideal for light industrial environments and applications. It prints at a max. speed of 12 ips (inch per second) at 203 dpi resolution. For even crispier text and barcodes, choose the 300 dpi version.

All models include a large 4.3 inch full-color touchscreen,  ethernet, Bluetooth low-energy, and USB host port. At the higher end, you can choose a version with peeler and rewinder, wifi or label cutter. All of the Zebra ZT231 label printer models fit a large 450m Thermal Transfer Ribbon (TTR).

FAQ about the Zebra ZT230 to ZT231 transition

  • Are my existing label designs for the ZT230 printers going to be compatible with the ZT231? Yes, ZT231 printers have been tested to ensure backwards compatibility with previous label formats and settings.
  • Do the new printers support the same accessory kits for media handling (peeler/cutter/label takeup) and network connectivity (LAN, WLAN, BT) as the previous models? While ZT231 printers offer the same accessory options of previous models, accessory kits are not interchangeable across old and new models. ZT231 is launching with a full array of media handling, print resolution, and communication accessories.
  • Is a parallel port option available on these new ZT231 models? Parallel port support has been removed from the ZT231 series of printers. If parallel connectivity is required, the ZT411 printers may be a good option, see table below.
