Zebra TLP3844-Z

The TLP3844-Z desktop printer with ZPL capability brings high resolution performance to the ZPL desktop architecture. The 3844-Z's 300 dots-per-inch printhead enables high quality, crisp, clear printing for labeling applications that require data such as two-dimensional bar codes, fine text, or composite graphics. Scanning and reading data on very small labels, such as laboratory vials or electronic components, is greatly enhanced.

Equipped with serial, parallel, and USB interfaces, Zebra's 3844-Z offers versatile connectivity and integration-quickly and easily network the TLP3844-Z into an Ethernet environment with the optional internal ZebraNet PrintServer II.
