Zenius is Easy-to-use - Please call us for current pricing. 800-519-8800

The Evolis Zenius Simplex (Single Sided) Full-Color ID Card Printer makes it easy for you to print full-color Credit Card sized (CR80) PVC cards every step of the way! Discover a wealth of advanced features loaded in the Zenius' contemporary yet compact design.

A 50 card input hopper (card feeder) and a 20 card output tray are located conveniently at the front of the printer - no need to reach around behind the printer to change cards or fill an emtpy feeder.

The Zenius has a manual feed option which will allow the user to insert a single card for printing - great for badging on pre-printed stock or at trade shows.

All of the controls on the Zenius are on the face of the printer and are easy to read and understand.

Zenius is Scalable

The Evolis Zenius is equipped with state-of-the-art ID card printing technologies.  The Zenius "Classic" is designed to work right out of the box, configured as-ordered, and is available with multiple options.   See the list of available Evolis Zenius configurations below.

The Zenius Expert version offers flexibility and scalability as your needs change as the Zenius Expert line of ID printers can be field-upgraded onsite with multiple encoders for magnetic stripe or smart card encoding. The flexible features of the “future proof” Zenius Expert ensures that you will always be in line with your current and future requirements in plastic card printing.

With the Evolis Zenius you have access to all ports directly on the rear of the printer.  The Zenius Classic USB version has a USB and power connection.

The Evolis Zenius Expert has the capability to combine magnetic and smart card encoders within the same printer either configured from the factory or ordered as an add-on module at a later date.

Zenius is Compact, Lightweight and Silent:

With a low sound level (46 decibels) and amazingly small size (7.67”h x 8.07”w x 12.20”d) and weight (7.3 Pounds) , The Evolis Zenius ID Card Printer can accommodate virtually any users environment, be it a welcome desk, a sales counter, or an office reception area. With its remarkably low weight of 7.3 Pounds, the Evolis Zenius is the lightest printer in its category.
