    Is Reverse encoding possible in ZXP 7 printer?

    ASHOK VARADHARAJAN

      Hi,

      I have been using Zebra P330i model for one of our projects. I am planning to upgrade to new series printer. I have a question regarding encoding. In the P330i model, i have been using one of the API to do reverse encoding in the ID cards that we issue, in order to support legacy card readers. I am trying to figure out if ZXP 7 also has a similar feature. If not, which Zebra model has this feature? Kindly please advise.

      Thanks,

      Ashok

          Ashok,

           

          I assume you are printing and Mag Encoding on the same side of card with your P330i (reverse Mag encoding)

           

          The great news is both ZXP Series 3 and the ZXP Series 7 Single Side printers do support this capability (though the proper use of the Printer SDK as well as printing via the Windows Driver)...  If you are using the Series 3 or 7 try selecting print front image on back in the Driver Preferences to see if this addresses your issue.

           

          Thank you

              HI Mark,

              Thanks for your response.

               

              I am printing content on the front side of the card and encoding magnetic stripe track data in the back of the card.

              I use the method called ZBRPRNSetEncodingDir provided by Zebra printer SDK. It takes one of the parameter for setting the direction.

              I am trying to evaluate if new ZXP series printers has this capability for encoding direction.

               

              I use the following 3 dlls from SDK for P330i model.

              ZBRgc.dll

              ZBRGraphics.dll

              ZBRPrinter.dll

               

              Please clarify/suggest.

               

              Thanks,

              Ashok
