ZQ300 Mobile Printer Series

Class-leading versatility for label and receipt printing

Mobile printing capabilities in your retail store can directly enhance customer service and associate productivity. With receipt printing, associates can ring up sales anywhere in the store to improve the shopper experience. And with on-the-spot printing of labels, associates can complete markups, markdowns and label audits faster and more accurately. With the Zebra ZQ300 Series printers, your associates can do it all. This compact printer is designed for all-day comfort and easy, one-handed operation. Unique, patented battery and battery management deliver the longest battery cycle times. When it comes to durability, it offers the most rugged specifications in its class. And with support for 802.11ac and Bluetooth®, you get the latest wireless connections in this class for fast printing. Plus, the ZQ300 Series is supported by our powerful Print DNA software applications for better performance, simplified remote manageability and easier integration.

ZQ300 Mobile Receipt Printer Series

More Versatility for More Value

One Printer—Dual Capabilities: Receipts and Labels

Now, one printer can do double duty: the same printer your store associates use for point of sale transactions can also print labels for shelves, item markdowns and markups.

Connect to Virtually Any Handheld

Pair the ZQ300 Series with any Bluetooth-enabled Zebra mobile handheld computer or tablet, or any Android™, iOS, Windows® CE and Windows Mobile device. With Wi-Fi connectivity, the ZQ300 Series easily doubles as a desktop printer.

Print Inside and Outdoors

If your retail store has outdoor departments, no problem. With IP54 sealing and support for water-resistant media, you can count on legible text and scannable barcodes, even when printing in the rain or snow.

Global Media Support

The ZQ300 Series accommodates international metric and US media widths.

Superior Industrial Design

Sleek on the Outside, Superior Zebra Design on the Inside

The lightweight design ensures user comfort all shift long. The slim profile makes it easy to use in tight spaces. And while its contemporary look fits into the most design-conscious retail store, you get the durability for which Zebra is famous. It’s the only printer in its class to offer triple durability specifications: IP54 sealing, and specifications for a 5 ft./1.5 m drop and 500-drop tumble, which simulates the real-world tumbling that follows a drop.

Faster, Easier and Highly Reliable Wireless Connections

The Latest Wireless Connections for Faster Printing

Enjoy superior printing speeds and power efficiency with the latest in Bluetooth connectivity, Bluetooth Classic and Low Energy (BLE). And with support for WLAN 802.11ac and the latest Wi-Fi security protocols, you get blazing fast and secure connections.

ZQ300 Mobile Receipt Printer Series Compatible Icons: Android, Windows 10, Made for iPod, iPhone, iPad, Wi-Fi

Robust and Reliable Connectivity

Zebra’s patented Power Smart Print Technology™ offloads processing from the printer CPU, freeing up processing power to better manage wireless communications, giving you more consistent and dependable wireless connections for maximum productivity.

Split-Second, Tap-To-Pair Simplicity

The integrated NFC tag allows users to pair the ZQ300 Series with any Zebra NFC-enabled mobile device with a quick tap. Even new and temporary workers are up and running in seconds, without having to call for support.

Maximize Power and Minimize Management

Full-Shift Power and Extraordinary Battery Management

The PowerPrecision+ 2280 mAh battery, a unique sleep mode, plus patented Power Smart Print Technology™ combine to minimize power requirements, offering one of the longest cycle times in this class. A wealth of battery metrics makes it easier than ever to identify and replace aging batteries before they impact productivity, so your printers are always in operation.

Power-Saving Sleep Mode with Instant Wake

This intelligent printer automatically enters sleep mode when it is idle, and automatically wakes up upon receipt of a printing job.

Reduce Battery Power Consumption Up to 30 Percent

While competitive devices provide a constant level of power, the ZQ300 Series print speed is adjusted dynamically in real time with patented Power Smart Print Technology™—using many factors, including motor torque, battery and print head temperature, print density and more. As a result, power consumption is reduced by an average of 20 to 30 percent per battery cycle.

The Most Charging Options for Maximum Flexibility and Scalability

Multi-slot printer and battery chargers—which can also accommodate select Zebra mobile computers—make it easy to cost-effectively create a rack-based backroom charging station that for all your devices. Single-slot printer and battery chargers are ideal on any desk. And with the AC-to-USB power adapter, users can simply plug the printer into any outlet to charge.

Superior Printer Management

Industry-First Application for Easy, Remote Management

Zebra’s one-of-a-kind Bluetooth Remote Management application gives you real-time visibility and remote management of all ZQ300 Series printers that are connected to any Android device via Bluetooth. This application collects and sends a wealth of information about the ZQ300 Series to your Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution—either Zebra’s Printer Profile Manager Enterprise printer management software or SOTI MobiControl. Now, the same tool you use to remotely manage your other mobile devices also allows you to easily update, monitor and troubleshoot your mobile printers, all in real-time from a remote central location. And since this solution utilizes a secondary Bluetooth communication channel, it won’t interfere with ZQ300 Series printing.

Zebra Print DNA–Your Printers’ Built-In Advantage

Print DNA’s suite of software capabilities help you stay a step ahead with remote management tools, heightened security, and ongoing updates that enable your printers to work at their highest potential.

Optional Printer Management Services for Maximum Flexibility

Our cloud- and subscription-based Asset Visibility Service (AVS) provides insight into the basic health information and proactive steps required to keep your ZQ300 Series printers up and running—all for just pennies a day. Operational Visibility Service (OVS) connects to an MDM and allows you to monitor just about any aspect of your Zebra printer, as well service and repair status. See the current status and disposition of all of your printers, printers at a specific site, specific models or a specific printer—and much more.
