The new Zebra ZQ series’ label printers ZQ511 and ZQ521 are direct thermal printers for mobile applications. They print barcodes, text or graphics in vertical or horizontal orientation.

The Zebra ZQ511 allows a maximum print width of 72 mm, the ZQ521 of 104 mm. As the media rolls are positioned in the center, variable roll widths are possible to ensure a versatile use of the compact mobile devices. They reach print speeds of maximal 127 mm per second and provide a print resolution of 203 dpi. An LCD and large function keys offer a convenient user interface even with gloves.

For an improved print quality, the new wireless printers ZQ511/ZQ521 are equipped with latest print technology regarding printhead and print mechanism as well as a new processor and extended memory capacity. Zebra’s Print DNA software suite includes tools to enhance productivity and remote management of the printers. They enable easy configuration and real-time monitoring of the devices.

The mobile printers ZQ511/ZQ521 are designed for busy working processes. They come with a special overmolding to ensure high durability.

Protection class IP54 ensures protection against the ingress of particles and water. The exoskeleton case increases the protection class to IP65.
