QLn Series Mobile Printers
ZEBRA’S QLN FAMILY OF DIRECT THERMAL MOBILE
LABEL AND RECEIPT PRINTERS
Zebra’s popular QL™ family of direct thermal mobile label and receipt 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 QLn™ series extends these QL-platform benefits to the “nth” power — whether you choose the QLn220™ for print
widths up to 2 inches or the QLn320™ for 3-inch-wide printing.
Easier to Integrate, Manage, and Maintain
New features make it easier to integrate the QLn printer into your
existing network and manage it from anywhere in the world — saving
you IT time and costs.
Easier to Integrate
Move your business forward without the cost or stress of upgrades.

their seamless, one-piece design — make them more durable than ever
before. These printers can boost your operation’s productivity through
their 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 printers more intuitive to
integrate into existing platforms thanks to Zebra’s Link-OS® environment.

From Accessories, to Supplies, to Zebra OneCare Service
Lithium-Ion Charging Accessories
Ethernet Cradle
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 10 mbps or 100 mbps networks using auto-sense.
Single-bay QLn
Ethernet Cradle
4-bay QLn
Ethernet Cradle
The single-bay QLn Ethernet cradle also charges the battery while it is in the printer, while the 4-bay version (with
optional wall mount kit) charges four printers at a time. The 4-bay version includes an internal Ethernet switch and
second Ethernet port, so you can link and manage four 4-bay QLn Ethernet cradles (a total of 16 printers) from one
port.
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.
What comes with the cradle?
Unit with 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 and wall outlet to charge the printer’s PowerPrecision+ 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.
Charger
The smart charger will fully charge a single standalone QLn PowerPrecision+ battery in less than four hours. In
addition to indicating battery-charge status, it leverages the battery’s PowerPrecision 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 charger comes with charging base and power cord. Shown with printer for reference purposes; printer is
not included.

The Extended Capacity PowerPrecision+ battery option provides twice the battery capacity over the standard
PowerPrecision+ battery, providing double the power for increased uptime. No need to upgrade your existing
QLn printer — you can purchase this as a standalone accessory to use with your current QLn220 or QLn320.
Or, order it as a configurable printer option so your printer ships ready to go with this powerful accessory.
The choice is yours.
Quad Battery Charger
The quad battery charger is designed to simultaneously charge up to four QLn PowerPrecision+ batteries
(removed from the printer) in about three hours. Lights on the charger indicate when individual batteries are
80 percent charged and when fully charged. Note the quad battery charger does not indicate battery health,
as provided with the smart charger. Comes with the charging unit, a power supply, and power cord.
Carrying Straps / Cases
Hand Strap: Allows the printer to be carried by hand.
Shoulder Strap: Allows the printer to be carried over the shoulder.
Soft Case: Add an extra layer of protection for harsh environments with a soft case. While in the case, the printer
is IP54-rated for resistance to windblown water and dust. Case provides openings for changing the media and

IMPROVE PATIENT SAFETY, THE PATIENT EXPERIENCE AND HEALTHCARE STAFF
PRODUCTIVITY WITH THE FULLY-FEATURED POCKET-SIZED MC40-HC.
Your patients chose you as their healthcare provider. In order to keep that patient, you need to deliver
the very best in care. And delivering the best care possible requires healthcare staff to have right-now
access to whatever information is required to not only take instant action — but to take the right action.
The MC40-HC gives your healthcare staff everything needed to make the right decision in a split
second, all in a device that rivals the design of today’s coolest mobile devices, including smartphones.
Your healthcare staff will instantly feel comfortable with the all-touch MC40-HC. With the familiar
Android™ operating system, healthcare staff already know how to interact with the device, virtually
eliminating training. It is just a little bigger than a smartphone, but still easily fits in a pocket, where it is
always handy. But the similarities to consumer-style devices end there.
Our Mobility Extensions (Mx) infuse Android with the enterprise-class features required in the critical
environment of healthcare — robust Wi-Fi connections that keep staff connected via voice and to realtime data; security features that protect data and help meet HIPAA requirements and complete remote
control over devices as well as their applications. And with enterprise-class data capture, nurses and
lab technicians can count on easy first time every time scanning of any bar code, ensuring accuracy in
medication administration and specimen collection — where errors can have extreme consequences.
THE MC40-HC — THE NEW FACE OF HEALTHCARE MOBILITY.

PRODUCT SPEC SHEET
ZEBRA® MC40-HC MOBILE COMPUTER
The New Face of Healthcare Mobility.
Cool styling — and all the features you need to deliver the highest quality care.
DISINFECTANT-READY WITH ENTERPRISE-CLASS
DURABILITY
You get the durability that Zebra Technologies is famous for —
the MC40-HC simply works, despite drops, bumps, spills and
constant sanitizing. And Gorilla Glass improves the durability
of three of the most vulnerable features — the display and the
scanner and camera exit windows.
ADVANCED SCANNING TECHNOLOGY
Nurses and clinical staff can count on dependable scanning
of any 1D or 2D bar code displayed on a computer screen or
printed on paper — even if the codes are dirty, poorly printed
or damaged.
Omni-directional scanning delivers point-and-shoot simplicity
— there is never a need to align the device and bar code. And
the extra wide best-in-class working range and field of view
make bar code capture easier than ever.
A LARGE 4.3 INCH TOUCH DISPLAY
Provides the screen real-estate to support informationintensive apps, such as electronic health records and real-time
feeds of patient vital signs.
ANDROID FORTIFIED FOR THE ENTERPRISE
Mx adds new features that transform Android from a consumer
operating system (OS) to a true enterprise-class operating
system, adding the enterprise-class security, manageability,
wireless connection quality and data capture feature support
your organization requires.
A POWERFUL VOICE CONNECTION TO NEARLY ANY
OTHER MOBILE DEVICE IN THE HOSPITAL
With our unique integrated voice solutions, the MC40-HC is
push-to-talk (PTT) ready right out of the box, easily connecting to
other PTT-enabled Zebra mobile computers, two-way radios and
third party popular smartphones. And Workforce Connect Voice^
turns any MC40-HC into a mobile deskphone with robust PBX
functionality.
^ Workforce Connect Voice is only available in some regions.
USER REPLACEABLE BATTERY FOR GUARANTEED
AVAILABILITY ALL SHIFT, EVERY SHIFT
An average of up to 8 to 10 hours of operation on a single charge
virtually eliminates downtime due to a dead battery during a shift;
user-swappable batteries protect device uptime and increase
device utilization for a stronger return on investment.

ZEBRA VH10 SERIES
PRODUCTIVITY. INGENIOUSLY ENGINEERED.
Every day, the workers in your forklifts and other material handling equipment are under pressure to move more
product in, through and out of the warehouse to meet customer demands. It will take a new level of efficiency. It will
take a new level of accuracy. It will take the VH10. The VH10 is built to provide the real-time information this workforce
needs to get the job done fast and right – in your warehouse aisles, out in the yard or in a freezer. You get productivity
, ingeniously engineered — with all the features you need for truly flawless fulfillment in your most demanding
environments.
Fits in virtually any material handling vehicle
Multiple mounting options, including standard RAM mounts and a 10-second quick release mount, plus a compact
size make mounting easy, even in the smallest vehicles.
Flexible wireless connectivity options
Only Zebra offers support for Wi-Fi and Narrowband, bringing you the best of both worlds. Support for 802.11a/b/g/n
Wi-Fi provides compatibility with virtually any wireless LAN and plenty of bandwidth to support the modern graphical
user interfaces of today’s demanding applications. Narrowband support provides robust, affordable and secure
wireless connectivity for simple data transactions in expansive outdoor areas such as seaports, rail yards, airports and
expansive outdoor yards in manufacturing plants — regardless of the presence of obstacles that typically create
coverage holes, such as metal containers, liquids or even other 2.4 GHz wireless networks.
Easily customize to meet your specific business needs
Add a Zebra corded or cordless scanner for fast and accurate capture of any bar code — even codes that are dirty or
damaged. Add a push-to-talk microphone to enable instant voice communications with vehicle operators.
Maximize uptime and minimize TCO with field serviceability
Replace the two elements that are most vulnerable to damage in minutes, right in your facility — the keyboard and
touchscreen — no need to send to a service depot.
Freezer-ready for the coldest supply chain
With the VH10f you get true frost and condensation free operation in freezers with touchscreen and board heaters,
smart temperature sensors that automatically control the heaters and heating speed, an elastomeric keyboard that
works despite icing and more.
Backwards compatibility for cost-effective upgrades
Use the same mounts, accessories and applications you have today for your prior Zebra vehicle mount mobile
computers, allowing you to cost-consciously upgrade to the latest technologies to improve productivity, customer
service and satisfaction.
