KYOCERA MITA launches five new A4 monochrome MFPs for small workgroups

15 November 2011

KYOCERA MITA Europe B.V. today announced the launch of five new A4 monochrome multifunctional devices. Two of them, the FS-1135MFP and FS-1035MFP/DP will replace the former BLI awarded FS-1128MFP as well as the FS-1028MFP and FS-1028MFP/DP with enhanced functionalities and superior printing speed of 35 pages per minute (ppm). The business entry models FS-1130MFP, FS-1030MFP/DP and FS-1030MFP come additionally with the same core functionalities and a print speed of 30 ppm. With their superior network integration and security features they are made to fit the needs of small workgroups from small offices to large businesses.

All five devices come with standard duplex printing, copy and colour scan functionality. The FS-1130MFP and FS-1135MFP are marketed as 4-in-1 devices with accessory fax function. All have a 50 sheet reversal document processor for high speed and easy usage, with the exception of the new basic model FS-1030MFP. At 6.9 sec, the time to first copy for the whole device group is extraordinarily fast.

New functionalities

In addition to the well known features of former KYOCERA A4 MFPs the new models offer a variety of new features that make document processes easier and more secure. For instance, the copy of double-sided ID cards on a single sheet of paper with a dedicated program key and they support optional authentication via IC cards for a convenient and secure way to manage the access rights for selected devices, which can be easily integrated to give accountability of all print jobs. In addition there is the private print function available for secure printing of confidential documents. It simply requires a pin code before the print job starts. “The new security features will give our customers peace of mind, by providing a safer transition from digital to paper” said Berthold Hurtz, Product Manager of KYOCERA MITA Europe B.V..


Minimized environmental impact

With these new A4 MFP models KYOCERA MITA provides the possibility to reduce power consumption to a very low level. The integrated sleep mode can be activated after one minute and reduces power consumption immediately to 7.8 – 10.6 W/h. ‘Automatic power off mode’ is now a feature available in all of the new devices, this function fulfils future requirements of EU directives and brings the devices down to a power consumption of only 0.5 W/h in the off-mode.
These models also support half speed print mode that brings the noise level down to 49 dB(A). To complete the comprehensive environmental approach the new A4 MFPs are of course based on the well established KYOCERA ECOSYS technology with its long life components to reduce waste and save money.

Low cost for high speed

The premium models FS-1035MFP/DP and FS-1135MFP print, copy and scan 35 pages per minutes. Thanks to ECOSYS technology and low toner cost the printing cost are exceptionally low in their printing class. The 30ppm models offer a lower purchasing price with an attractive cost per page.

The new A4 mono multifunctional devices are available from KYOCERA MITA authorised partners from 15 November 2011.
