Premium Features for Maximum Productivity
The latest wireless connections for fast,reliable, and secure printing
Zebra printers are known for leading the market in wireless technology and the ZQ600 Series offers the fastest, most dependable wireless connections inside the four walls. With support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi and its latest security protocols, plus Bluetooth 4.1 Classic and Low Energy, your workers can count on blazing fast and secure connections.
Industry-standard 802.11r fast roaming for seamless access
Retail workers rarely stand still. With support for 802.11r fast roaming technology, your workers can depend on a connection while they are on the move.
The industry’s only instant wake-up over Wi-Fi
Forget about frustrating printer reboot times that drain productivity. You can be sure that the ZQ600 Series is ready whenever workers press ‘print’. This intelligent printer enters sleep mode when it is idle, and automatically wakes up the moment the user sends a print job — delivering instant availability and maximum power efficiency. And unlike other mobile printers, the ZQ600’s instant wake-up works over both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Large colour display makes configuration and operation a snap
It’s easy to set up and maintain the ZQ600 Series with its large display, user-friendly interface and easily customized menu. The display changes color when the printer is paused or in an error state, such as out of media or latch open, so users instantly know what the printer needs to stay up and running. And since the ZQ600 Series is based on Zebra’s Link-OS menu system, you’ll get a common UI and user experience across other Zebra Link-OS mobile, desktop and industrial printers to lower the learning curve.
Business tough — built for all-day every day enterprise use
While the ZQ600 is lightweight and comfortable to wear all shift long, it is loaded with features that give it long-lasting durability, including over-molding, a tempered-glass display and seamless one-piece design. The high-grade resin is one of the toughest plastics available for greater impact resistance. And multiple mechanical design improvements further increase printer robustness and uptime.
Superior Battery Power and Power Management
The highest capacity battery in its class
Your workers depend on their mobile printers nearly every minute of the day. With the ZQ600’s high capacity 3250mAH battery, you can be sure that every worker has plenty of power for every shift.
Do more on a single charge with Zebra’s Power Smart Print Technology™
This patented Zebra technology maximizes efficiency by delivering the exact amount of power required for the highest quality printing. Printers with PSPT save an estimated 20 to 30 percent of their battery power, so users can do more on a single charge.
Extraordinary battery management capabilities with PowerPrecision+ technology
The ZQ600 Series’ PowerPrecision+ battery delivers the ultimate in battery power and management. A wealth of easily accessible battery metrics makes it easy to identify aging batteries before they impact productivity. You can be sure that every worker starts every shift with a healthy and fully-charged battery. And better visibility into battery health means you can reduce the size of the spare battery pool.
Advanced Platform Grows with Your Business
Zebra Print DNA – transforming printers from the inside
The printer hardware is just the start of what you need to maximize the value of your printers. The ZQ600 Series is powered by Link-OS, Zebra’s robust printer operating system, and Print DNA, a combination of productivity, management, development and visibility tools. The result is a superior printing experience through better performance, simplified remote manageability and easier integration.
Robust memory to support applications today and tomorrow
The ZQ600 offers 256 MB RAM and 512 MB Flash — providing more than enough memory for all your fonts and graphics needs today, as well as all the firmware upgrades and new Print DNA tools for years to come.
Backward compatible with QLn accessories
With more than one million units sold, Zebra’s QLn Series set the bar for retail mobile printing. Now, the ZQ600 Series raises the bar again. And since the ZQ600 Series is backward compatible with QLn accessories, you can upgrade to the latest platform and ingenuity without buying new accessories or rebuilding the settlement room.
Maximum Uptime with Comprehensive Remote Management Options
Resolve problems faster with the Ethernet Cradle
Remote management is easy with the ZQ600 Series’ Ethernet Cradle. By docking the printer in the cradle at the end of every shift, IT can remotely upgrade the firmware as needed to ensure that each printer is operating at peak performance. Should retail employees experience a problem, they can simply dock the printer into the cradle for a remote diagnosis — eliminating the downtime and costs associated with shipping a printer to the repair depot when nothing is physically wrong.
Easily manage all your printers — all from a single location
With Zebra's comprehensive and flexible remote management tools, you can maintain, secure and troubleshoot printers simply and easily, from anywhere, at anytime. Use the free Printer Setup Utilities to simplify setup and out-of-the-box configuration tasks. And with the optional Printer Profile Manager Enterprise, you can manage one printer, a group of specific printers or all printers anywhere in the world. This browser based solution lets you instantly discover every Link-OS printer on your network — there’s no need to manually track down, configure or troubleshoot printers.
Seamless integration with your device management system
Get the simplicity of a single-pane-of-glass to manage all your Zebra mobile devices and printers — including the ZQ600 Series. With Print DNA’s MDM Connectors, you can easily integrate networked ZQ600 Series printers into your existing AirWatch or SOTI MobiControl device management system. And if you are using Ivanti Avalanche (powered by Wavelink), the ZQ600 Series offers support for Avalanche right out of the box.
Ensure continued reliability with Printhead Diagnostics
With the ZQ600 Series, you don’t need to worry about downtime from a worn-out printhead. Our unique Printhead Diagnostics provide visibility into the health of printheads across your deployment, enabling you to take action before productivity is impacted.
