ZQ120 VS ZQ620

Hello,

We are new to Zebra mobile printers so need some guidance on the CPCL & ZPL code.

We have an Android application and need to print labels on ZQ620 using ZPL code over Bluetooth. We need to start this work on urgent basis. Unfortunately ZQ620 (which supports ZPL) is not available immediately and ZQ120 is.

Can someone please advice if we can test our printing with ZQ120 and test for CPCL code. Then will the application work for ZQ620 for ZPL code.

A quick reply will be appriciated.

Thanks

Robin West
You should be able to test

You should be able to test your CPCL and ZPL on the ZQ120.  The main things you gain with using the ZQ620 are overall durability, print speed, print quality and connectivity options.  They both process ZPL and CPCL the same.

Thanks Robin for the quick

Thanks Robin for the quick reply.
So, that means Bluetooth connectivity, Printing works the same way. If I will be able to setup and Integrate ZQ120 then ZQ620 will also work.
Can you please share some reference documentation that will help us speed up the process.

Hello Robin,

Hello Robin,

On the ZQ120 Specs sheet (https://www.zebra.com/ap/en/products/spec-sheets/printers/mobile/zq120.html) only CPCL is mentioned. As I need to get a new printer, can you please clear this confusion.

Thanks

ZQ120 is a non-Link-OS

ZQ120 is a non-Link-OS printer that supports CPCL only, while ZQ620 is a Link-OS printer that supports both CPCL and ZPL. From Bluetooth connectivity aspect, both ZQ120 and ZQ620 works the same way and supports both Android and iOS devices. From Link-OS SDK perspective, not all the features in the SDK support ZQ120 printers. Please refer to this article for guidance - Use the Link-OS SDK with Non-Link-OS Printers. Ideally, if ZQ310 or ZQ320 printers are available and use them instead of ZQ120, as both ZQ310 & ZQ320 are Link-OS printers and better development substitute for ZQ620.
