The ZQ500 printers are lightweight, yet engineered to handle the bumps, drops and collisions that are part of the job. The printers feature a patented military design that meets third-party-verified MIL-STD 810g military standards for shock, vibration and temperature exposure. The printers can withstand repeated drops to concrete from 6.6’ on multiple sides.
Zebra not only protects your hardware, but also your operational uptime. The ZQ500 printers meet IP54-rating for resistance to dust and liquids that are common in mobile environments—from dirt in the field to crumbs in a service vehicle. And with cold temperature compensation, the ZQ500 Series automatically optimises and balances print speed and print quality in cold temperatures.
The ZQ500 printers are Zebra's first products to support a secondary Bluetooth communication channel, an innovative feature that allows one channel to send print jobs to the printer while a second channel performs additional functions such as device management. The ZQ500 printers also feature "draft mode" which optimises the printing speed (up to 5 inches per minute) for text-only printing.
