ZQ630 RFID Mobile Printer

Premium Features for Maximum Productivity

RFID + Mobility Made Easy

Leading the industry in RFID mobility, Zebra offers the only RFID mobile printers. The innovative ZQ630 RFID printer gives your workers the flexibility to print and encode RFID labels with ease, when and where needed. Compatible with all current Zebra RFID technology, including tags and encoding schemes, it’s easy to extend RFID to a mobile printer. RFID setup is simple with automatic calibration features that eliminate complex RFID placement guidelines. Insert the RFID media into the ZQ630 and RFID calibrate only once—no need to recalibrate with same- type media changes.

The Latest Wireless Connections for Fast, Reliable and Secure Printing

Zebra printers are known for leading the market in wireless technology and the ZQ630 RFID 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

Your workers are always in motion. With support for 802.11r fast roaming technology, they 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 ZQ630 RFID 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 ZQ630 RFID’s 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 ZQ630 RFID 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 ZQ630 RFID 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 ZQ630 RFID 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. Multiple mechanical design improvements further increase printer robustness and uptime.

Superior Battery Power and Power Management

The Highest Capacity Battery in Its Class with Extraordinary PowerPrecision+ Technology Battery Management

Your workers depend on their mobile printers nearly every minute of the day. With the ZQ630 RFID’s high-capacity 6800 mAh battery, you can be sure that every worker has plenty of power for every shift. The PowerPrecision+ technology 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, ensure every worker starts every shift with a healthy and fully charged battery, and even reduce the size of your spare battery pool.

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.

Advanced Platform Grows with Your Business

Zebra Print DNA – Transforming Printers From the Inside

The printer hardware is just the start of what you need to maximize the value of your printers. The ZQ630 RFID 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 ZQ630 RFID 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 mobile printing. Now, the ZQ630 RFID raises the bar again. And since the ZQ630 RFID 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 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 ZQ630 RFID. With Print DNA’s MDM Connectors, you can easily integrate networked ZQ630 RFID printers into your existing AirWatch or SOTI MobiControl device management system. And if you are using Ivanti Avalanche (powered by Wavelink), the ZQ630 RFID offers support for Avalanche right out of the box.

Ensure Continued Reliability with Printhead Diagnostics

With the ZQ630 RFID, 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.

ZQ630 RFID Accessories

The ZQ630 RFID offers all the accessories you need, from power and charging to carrying and protection options, cables and more. Please refer to the Mobile Printer Accessory Guide, found on Zebra.com, for all the accessories available for the ZQ630 RFID.

Lithium-Ion Charging Accessories
Ethernet Cradle
Single-bay Ethernet Cradle

Single-bay Ethernet Cradle




Connect ZQ630 RFID printers to your wired Ethernet network via the ZQ600 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 Ethernet cradle also charges the battery while it is in the printer.

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.
