Zebra® S4M™

Whether you’re new to bar coding, upgrading from an older Stripe® series, desktop printing, or adding new printers, Zebra’s S4M thermal printer delivers an affordable solution for many labeling requirements.

Zebra® S4M™

The Easy Way to Add Dependable Printing

  • The S4M offers you ease of use, the durability of a metal frame/case and a full 8" (203mm) media-roll capacity that means fewer label changes
  • The front control panel features a streamlined menu for simple navigation, while its proven side-loading design eliminates threading of labels and ribbons for quick, easy loading
  • A variety of ways to connect – from serial, parallel and USB interfaces to internal 10/100 Ethernet or IEEE 802.11b/g – enables easy system integration
  • It will fit in completely with your other Zebra printers because it speaks the same programming languages (ZPL® and EPL™)
