New mobile QLn series printers with faster, higher-quality printing - Zebra’s third generation of QL printers

QLn420 left mdAs Zebra’s third generation of QL printers, the QLn series extends these QL-platform benefits to the “nth” power—whether you choose the QLn320™ for 3-inch-wide printing, or the QLn220™ for print widths up to 2 inches.  Backwards compatibility with QL and QL Plus lets you upgrade to the QLn without changing media or label formats. It also allows mixed networks of QL/QL Plus and QLn products.

A new seamless, one-piece design and tempered-glass display join the printer’s rubber-infused overmolding to make the lightweight printer even more durable. The QLn printer can boost your operation’s productivity through a larger, sharper, easier-to-navigate display; faster, higher-quality printing; a variety of proactive alerts that help keep working printers in employees’ hands; and many convenient charging accessories.

Faster, higher-quality printing with lower power use, through new Power Smart Print Technology. Increased memory that handles printer’s advanced functions and future firmware improvements, and stores more complex fonts, graphics and images.

Prevent associates from being stuck printerless in the middle of their work. The printer enables proactive maintenance by displaying printer alert messages, smart battery charge and health status, and printhead cleaning how-to’s.  Avoid the downtime and costs of unnecessarily sending the printer away for servicing. Many issues can be remotely diagnosed and resolved (including firmware updates, configuration changes, and adding new fonts or graphics) over an Ethernet connection.

And your IT department will find the QLn easier to integrate into existing environments with such features as Zebra Global Printing, improved network performance—including 802.11n wireless LAN capability.

The QLn Series printers offers 802.11n wireless LAN capability. This provides more robust and reliable connectivity which allows for a greater throughput in environments where users need to transmit larger blocks of data. Zebra’s 802.11n solution has dual band support (5 GHz and 2.4 GHz) and is fully compatible with 802.11a and 802.11b/g standards. This means that end-users that have encountered a crowded 802.11b/g network can now easily move their business operations to the less crowded 5 GHz band using Zebra’s wireless connectivity solution. Zebra’s 802.11n solution supports channel bandwidths of 20 MHz and 40 MHz contributing to better throughputs, unlike other solutions in the market that only support 20 MHz channel widths.

Integrate and use the printer in a variety of physical environments and conditions thanks to its durable design.

Ethernet Cradle

Connect QLn printers to your wired Ethernet network via the QLn 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 QLn 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 QLn 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.
