ZBI script that is loaded into the printer, scanner can be bluetooth or wired to back of printer. Upon scanning a UPC or ISBT barcode, a duplicate will be printed. No need for a computer or any other hardware.
Other barcode types could be added upon request as well as custom formatting on label printers.
Complementing the printer’s resident Zebra Programming Language (ZPL®), the optional ZBI 2.0 programming language can be used to write programs that give Zebra printers the ability to convert non-ZPL data streams — such as label formats created for other-brand printers — into printed labels. That makes it easy to replace your old, non-Zebra printers with the superior features, performance and reliability of a new Zebra printer. Send, receive and print real-time data from peripheral devices, enterprise systems or PC-hosted databases. Create interactive front-panel prompts to build powerful stand-alone printing systems.
ZBI 2.0 applications can intercept and alter data sent to and from the printer:
