A multifunctional is really an all-in-one device; it is both a scanner and a printer, and often even has a fax function. So effectively it\'s a copier, but one that has the scanning and printing functions available separately. All this is a great advantage when you have limited office space. Moreover, you will be able to work faster and more efficiently by using the device\'s convenient special functions.

If you want easy to use faxing plus colour printing, scanning and copying in one compact unit, you need the MFC-240C at your side. The combination of office functionality and high quality photo printing gives increased efficiency in the small office.

Crisp, clear prints and photos are delivered consistently, whether you’re printing professional black and white text documents or complex colour presentations. You can send or receive both mono and colour faxes, with the speed dials making it easy to communicate with your most regular contacts. Incoming and ready-to-transmit messages can be stored in the MFC-240C’s sizeable memory.

The scanning software provided gives you access to a range of features including scan to e-mail, OCR, image and file (including PDF). Producing quality copies has never been easier as the MFC-240C’s flatbed design enables bound documents to be copied quickly, whilst the Automatic Document Feeder lets you make multiple copies at the touch of a button.

You can also translate a scanned document or a webpage into a number of languages using the SYSTRAN® WebTranslator 5.0 software.

The MFC-240C’s PhotoCapture Centre allows you to print directly from your memory card or transfer files and images to your PC, without the need for a plug-in card reader or specialist software. The media card is simply shown as an additional drive on your PC, enabling you to save and retrieve photos and documents with ease. Alternatively, you can print your photos directly from your digital camera by using the PictBridge interface.

All Brother colour inkjet all-in-one products come complete with individual colour ink cartridges so colours can be replaced separately. Brother original LC1000 ink cartridges with fade resistant ink used with Brother BP61 glossy photo paper enables the MFC-240C to print with a smaller droplet size (1.5 picolitre). The result is a higher quality photo with better definition.

Optical scanning resolution*
How many pixels a scanner can see. Most commonly, this is measured in dots per inch (dpi).For example, a typical flatbed scanner will use a scanning head with 300 sensors per inch, so it can sample 300 dots per inch (dpi) in one direction. To scan in the other direction, it will move the scanning head along the page, stopping 300 times per inch, so it can scan 300 dpi in the other direction as well. This scanner would have an optical resolution of 300 x 300 dpi. Some manufacturers stop the scanning head more frequently as it moves down the page, so their machines have resolutions of 300 x 600 dpi or 300x1200 dpi.
