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.

With print speeds of up to 20 pages per minute and a resolution of up to 2400 x 600 dots per inch, you can be certain of both the quality and performance of this machine. Coping with office print demands is no problem, thanks to a generous 32MB of standard memory, which can be expanded to up to 160MB. Both PCL®6 and BR-Script 3 (PostScript® 3 language emulations) are installed, and confidentiality is assured with the Secure Print feature. Furthermore, with the choice of parallel, Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and optional network, connecting to the most popular PC operating systems presents no problem.

Besides these four main functions, this all-in-one machine offers the convenience of simultaneous operation. This allows you to use the scan function while a print-out is being generated or print a document whilst sending a fax.
Backlit keys for Fax, Copy and Scan enable instant access to each function.

The availability of both a flatbed and a 50 sheet Automatic Document Feeder provides flexibility when copying. You can produce up to 99 copies at one time and stack and sort functions present your documents without the need for rearranging.

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.
