ZQ600 Series Group

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

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 Series’ instant wake-up works over both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Large Color 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 Series 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 Series’ high capacity 3250 mAH (ZQ610 / ZQ620) and 6800 mAH (ZQ630) 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.

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 Series 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 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 our 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.

Protect Sensitive Customer and Business Data with PrintSecure

This complimentary Print DNA utility makes it easy to configure over 30 settings to fine-tune printer security to protect your data and your infrastructure by creating secure printer connections and blocking unauthorized printer access.

Consistently Exceptional Zebra Certified Supplies

Printing supplies can impact everything from printhead lifespan to operational efficiency. That’s why we design, produce and rigorously pre-test our own line of thermal printing supplies to ensure consistent, optimized performance in your Zebra printer — and peace of mind for you. For industry-leading quality, service and thermal printing expertise, choose Zebra Certified Supplies.

Single-bay Ethernet Cradle

4-Bay Ethernet Cradle Accessory

4-bay Ethernet Cradle
*Only available on ZQ610 & ZQ620

Connect ZQ600 Series printers to your wired Ethernet network via the ZQ600 Series Ethernet cradle to enable easy remote management by your IT or operations staff — helping to ensure each printer is operating optimally and ready for use. The Ethernet cradle can communicate over 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps networks using auto-sense.

The single-bay ZQ600 Series Ethernet cradle also charges the battery while it is in the printer, while the 4-bay version (with optional wall mount kit) charges four printers at a time. The 4-bay version includes an internal Ethernet switch and second Ethernet port, so you can link and manage four 4-bay Ethernet cradles (a total of 16 printers) from one port.

The printer remains fully functional so you can print while it is in either cradle. The cradle’s LED lights indicate DC power and Ethernet-link status.

Remote printer management over your Ethernet allows:

  • Battery management for monitoring battery health. Knowing each battery’s lifespan stage simplifies central management of your spare-battery pool.
  • Firmware management for updating printer firmware, eliminating the need for IT staff to travel to the local user site, or for the printer to be sent back to a central location for updating.
  • Print management for updating templates, fonts and graphics in order to print new label formats.
  • Device management for updating startup (e.g., config. sys), WML (front panel) or HTML (browser) files to enhance or change configuration and status collection.
  • Network management for updating encryption keys or certificate files to maintain the highest level of security.
  • Problem resolution and troubleshooting local printer issues that may otherwise require the printer to be sent in for repair.
  • Ability to manage Bluetooth printers, which traditionally have been off-network.
