Peacock Bros. Australia and New Zealand is ready to take orders for Zebra Technologies latest QL “Plus” series of portable barcode label and label receipt printers. The new QL Plus series will replace the current QL series with each model hosting an impressive list of added features while still maintaining the current price point.

Depending on your application needs and environmental conditions, you can choose from 3 QL Plus series models; the QL Plus 220, the QL Plus 320 and the QL Plus 420.  Each model is compact, sturdy and has their own unique characteristics that will meet specific portable barcode label and label receipt printing needs.   Each version is encased within a rubber-infused plastic over-mold shell and has an easy to use “peel and present” label dispensing operation delivering rugged performance and ease-of-use.

The Zebra QL Plus series is powered by an advanced, high-speed 32bit processor for faster operation and label set up, decreasing the time required to produce the first label.  This new processor technology increases the processing speed to 4 times that of the current model and offers support for more complex graphics, fonts, applications and wireless protocols.  An LCD display, menu control and belt clips give the user exceptional input functionality, information display and printing performance anywhere in the workplace or out in the field.

2MB Flash and 2 MB RAM memory is now standard; double that of previous models increasing the capacity for downloading of fonts and symbologies as well as printer control languages, network management support and wireless security protocols.  Every effort has been made to ensure that the new Zebra QL Plus is ready to support emerging future wireless security protocols including 802.11i which will be coming soon, giving you the confidence in meeting not just the portable printing needs of today but of the future.  

Increased connectivity is an important improvement of the Plus series, with USB 2.0 full speed connectivity included as standard it will facilitate faster transfers of label designs, label formats and image files.  Optional IrDA, Bluetooth and wireless 802.11b connectivity is available for all QL Plus series units, offering the flexibility to adjust to a wide range of interface needs.

The Zebra Technologies QL series of portable label receipt / barcode label printers have proven their value time and time again within industries such as: Law Enforcement, Retail, Postal delivery, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare and Transport and Distribution.   This new series will not only continue to excel within those industries, but with faster processor speeds and mobility it opens the door to a host of other portable printing applications.
