Rapid Smart Card and eID Card Personalization

Not only is the Zenius Expert ID Card Printer fast, printing at a speed of 8 cards per minute for monochrome ink, it’s also compatible with the most innovative smart card personalization software for electronic chip encoding today—The Card Encoding Engine™. The Card Encoding Engine is the only printer software solution in the market that allows instant chip encoding for contact and contactless smart cards without requiring programming. It also benefits from the idblox™ ecosystem, which enables the fastest, easiest and most affordable development of microprocessor-based smart cards today.

For rapid and flexible chip encoding, pair your Zenius Expert card printer with the Printplex® Smart Card Encoder and The Card Encoding Engine—No Programming Required.

Compact, Silent, and Eco-friendly

The Zenius Expert card printer is eco-friendly, compact and runs silently. The printer has earned the coveted ENERGY STAR certification compliant with the reduced energy consumption guidelines from the ErP European directive. Zenius Expert is also compact and lightweight, the lightest printer in its category, weighing in at 7.3 lbs, making it easy to take the printer to different locations, comfortably. Zenius also performs quietly so that you and people around you will not be disturbed by noise. In addition, the Zenius Expert features a cool contemporary design, which can add an esthetic touch to your office or issuance station’s décor.


Every card personalization and printing step has been simplified with an array of advanced features creating a smart and easy-to-use printer. User-friendly features include a front-loading card feeder and output tray with top-loading ribbon, a manual feeder, and an LED control panel for easy assistance. The ribbon includes an integrated chip to identify the ribbon type in order to configure the settings automatically, and the included easy-to-use Evolis Premium Suite® for Windows driver and printer manager makes an issuer’s job a breeze. The Evolis Premium Suite® and the Evolis High Trust® range of consumables were all designed with convenience and sophistication in mind.
