ZQ511/ZQ521 Mobile Printers

This product replaces the older Zebra QL420 Plus.

Designed to withstand the toughest environments, Zebra's ZQ500 Series mobile printers are the rugged addition to Zebra's mobile printer family. ZQ500 printers are “Made for iPod® / iPhone® / iPad®” (MFi) and Wi-Fi Alliance certified to support connectivity to a range of Apple®, Android™ and Windows® Mobile devices for a fully mobile printing solution.

Keeping the user in mind, Zebra designed the ZQ500's with large buttons and a user-friendly interface so they are easy to operate, even when wearing gloves. The lightweight ZQ510 and ZQ521 can withstand drops from over 6' to concrete and frequent water sprays with a seal rating of IP54 making them the ideal choice for warehouses. Being able to perform in the widest temperature range in the industry and with Zebra's Link-OS® environment, these premium printers are easy to integrate, manage and maintain even in the most extreme applications.

The ZQ510 has a maximum print width of 2.83"/72mm and weighs approximately 1.4lbs where the ZQ521 prints up to 4.09"/104mm wide and weighs 1.75lbs. Both printers are very compact and lightweight and have a simple to read LCD screen with large icons for battery and wireless status. A rechargeable PowerPrecision+ Li-Ion battery can run for hours without needing to recharge with the built-in battery charger.
