S4M Barcode Printers

The Zebra S4M has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the Zebra ZT200.

The Zebra S4M barcode printer merges reliability and versatility in a solid frame, ensuring long lasting use and excellent label printing. Designed with a complete die-cast frame and sheet metal enclosure, the S4M has tremendous sturdiness and resistance to the bumps and knocks that can occur in a rough environment.

For reliability and ease of use, the S4M features a side-loading design, saving time normally spent threading labels and ribbons. The printer is also compatible with ZPL, EPL, and APL programming languages, making it a snap to replace or upgrade an aging printer. Available with USB, RS-232 Serial, Parallel, Wired Ethernet, or 802.11b interfaces, the Zebra S4M easily integrates into nearly any location, making it ideal for advanced label creation.
