Lexmark has introduced a new generation of mid-range mono printing devices targeted at enterprise customers
The OEM says the new MS and MX 320, 420, 520, and 620 Series intelligent devices are equipped with the latest capabilities so users can focus on growing their business. The single-function and MFP series bring a combination of reliability, productivity and security to desktop sized devices built for large, medium and small workgroups within the enterprise.
“This new generation of Lexmark mid-range monochrome products brings the power of a departmental printer or MFP multifunction products to the desktop,” said Allen Waugerman, Lexmark Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer.
Featuring sturdy frames and long lasting components, the new models offer reliability, durability and duty cycles that minimise waste, enhance longevity and cut down the need for service and support. Long-life components, cartridge yields up to 25,000 pages and a maximum input capacity of 2,300 pages (with optional trays) keeps these devices working with fewer user interventions.
Through a combination of performance, simplicity and connectivity, the high-performance, high-capacity printers and MFPs enable large, medium and small work groups to get more done. Features include the ability to print up to 50 ppm and scan up to 100 images per minute. Furthermore, a powerful multicore processor with up to 2GB of standard memory simultaneously handles multiple tasks so users can send a fax while they print, for example.
Ease of use is also in-built, e-Task, Lexmark’s tablet-like interface, provides easy access to powerful, time-saving solutions like Scan Center and Shortcut Center, enhancing productivity, accessibility, energy savings and user experience.
Full spectrum security features help protect documents, devices and networks from unauthorised access and are fully integrated into every product in the series. The new range responds to multi-faceted security threats holistically, providing systematic security for the device, the ﬂeet and across the network infrastructure, creating a safer and more productive environment.
The series’ new media handling capability supports a wider range of media types with better skew performance for more accurate print jobs and the free Lexmark Mobile Print app enables users to complete tasks via approved mobile devices. Output is also available via AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Mopria, or Windows Mobile. A scan-to-mobile feature lets users scan pages on the Lexmark MFP, then view and share the scans from their mobile device.
Waugerman added: “At the heart of this new generation of monochrome machines is a powerful multicore processor that supports true multitasking, and twice as much standard memory as previous-generation devices. Like all Lexmark products, these new devices are designed to be reliable, productive and secure additions to customers’ IT assets.”
