Zebra QLn420TM Mobile Printer

Zebra’s popular QLTM family of direct-thermal mobile label printers has built a highly satisfied following based upon its proven drop- resistant durability; user-friendly, productivity-boosting features; and easy integration. As Zebra’s third generation of QL printers, the QLnTM series extends these QL-platform benefits to the “nth” power.

A new seamless, one-piece design joins the printer’s over-molding to make the 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. And your IT department will find the QLn printer easier to integrate into existing environments with such features as Zebra Global Printing, improved network performance—including 802.11n wireless LAN capability for more robust and reliable connectivity and throughput—and ZebraLinkTM support.

Longer Printer Uptime
• Mobile printing helps you improve operational productivity and reduce costs associated with downtime through fewer printing interruptions
• 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

Easier to Set up
•The Zebra Setup Utility quickly configures single printers and ZebraNetTM Bridge Enterprise enables global  centralized printer management
• Print TouchTM software simplifies Bluetooth® pairing and launches Web-based help pages with Near Field Communication-enabled devices
• ZebraDesignerTM Pro (for label design) and ZebraDesigner drivers (for Windows) create efficient and optimized output while Zebra’s UnicodeTM UTF-16-compliant Global Printing Solution, with right-to-left printing capability, enables you to print in local languages.

Easier to Integrate
• ZPL® programming language ensures full compatibility with many other Zebra printers and ZBI 2.xTM programming enables printers to directly connect with legacy host systems and peripheral devices such as
scanners and scales. Backwards compatibility with QL and QL Plus models also lets you upgrade to the QLn printer without changing media or label formats. It also allows mixed networks of QL/QL Plus and QLn products, as does the QLn printer’s inclusion of the legacy CPCL programming language
• Integrate and use the printer in a variety of physical environments and conditions thanks to its durable design

Easier to Manage
• Use the Link-OS software solutions to rapidly configure, monitor and integrate Zebra printers with your system. Also manage specific, local printer and battery issues remotely over a wired IP network via a Zebra Ethernet Cradle – keeping printers in service longer and reducing “no problem found” returns. The Ethernet cradle allows all printer configurations to be remotely managed, including serial and Bluetooth (which would not otherwise be possible). A Profile Manager with AirWatch Connector quickly connects your printer with the AirWatch device-management
system via WLAN and Ethernet

Lithium-Ion Charging Accessories
Charging and Ethernet Cradle

The QLn420 charging and Ethernet cradle charges the battery – a neat and orderly solution to keep batteries in
the printer.
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 10Mbps or 100Mbps networks using auto-sense.
The printer remains fully functional so you can print while it is in the 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 : 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

AC Adapter
Cradle, AC adapter, power cord, and document CD including cradle user manual and installation guide.

Cradle Unit
Cradle and document CD including cradle user manual and installation guide (AC adapter can be purchased separately).

AC Adapter
Connect the AC adapter to your QLn printer and wall outlet to charge the printer’s smart battery while in the printer. The printer can print labels and perform other functions during charging. Shown with printer for reference purposes; printer is not included.

Smart Charger
The smart charger will fully charge a single standalone QLn smart battery in less than four hours. In addition to indicating battery-charge status, it leverages the battery’s smart design to indicate battery health, allowing you to more accurately manage your spare-battery pool.Specifically, LEDs show whether the battery is “good,” has a “diminished capacity,” is “past useful life,” or is “unusable” and should be replaced. The smart charger comes with a charging base and power cord. Shown with printer for reference purposes; printer is not included.

Removable Forklift Cradle
The smart charger will fully charge a single standalone QLn smart battery in less than four hours. In addition to indicating battery-charge status, it leverages the battery’s smart design to indicate battery health, allowing you to more accurately manage your spare-battery pool.Specifically, LEDs show whether the battery is “good,” has a “diminished capacity,” is “past useful life,” or is “unusable” and should be replaced.
