Link-OS v6.3 Features

  • The PDF Direct emulation app is now available for download and use on printers that have been updated to Link-OS v6.3. Link-OS v6.3 and the PDF Direct app can be downloaded from printer Support pages at by entering your printer’s model name (such as “ZT411” or “ZQ620”).
  • Link-OS v6.3 uses an improved method to control low-battery behavior. This method delivers more consistent image quality when printing large amounts of black and when printing in low temperatures. This method also has the benefit of improving battery charging reliability and avoiding premature printer shutdown. We recommend users experiencing an inability to charge their battery or earlier than expected printer shutdown events, update their printers to Link-OS v6.3.

  • For value printers, we offer Link-OS Basic featuring a core set of Print DNA features for cost-efficient and reliable printing.
