Kyocera Document Solutions introduces two A3 Smart MFPs

High-end Ecosys colour MFPs meet the professional requirements of small businesses

01 December 2012

Kyocera Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, introduced two Smart MFPs today. Replacing the FS-C8020MFP and FS-C8025MFP, the new FS-C8520MFP and FS-C8525MFP offer a professional solution for end users who require A3 colour printing with a low initial purchase price and low TCO. Embedded HyPAS* technology enables individual one-click operations for better productivity.

The technology used in the successful predecessors has been further refined to reduce the Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) by 20% in the new FS-C8520MFP and FS-C8525MFP, with the power consumption reduced to 0.9W in sleep mode. HyPAS functionality is now possible with a compact flash card for customization requests. Lastly, the 1.5GB standard memory enables extra security solutions, including private print functionality.

Kyocera calls their new FS-C8520MFP and FS-C8525MFP Smart MFPs because they combine ease of use, reliability and low environmental impact in a compact design. Both models are easy to operate with an intuitive colour touch panel that gives quick access to all functions. The set-up and installation is straightforward with the installation wizard. Thanks to the toner-only technology, which, along with long-life components, is part of the Kyocera Ecosys concept, the new devices have a low environmental impact and require minimal servicing, as the end-user only needs to replace the toner. When printing up to 200,000 pages over the device's lifespan, or 3,000 pages per month, there is no need for a service or maintenance contract, which is a standard requirement for most other A3 MFPs on the market. The device's printing capacity can be extended with an additional maintenance kit.

“Kyocera’s new Smart MFPs offer a good solution for small to medium businesses with a small budget, but who want the functionalities and benefits of a professional A3 colour MFP,” explains Noriko Ishii, Product Manager Kyocera Document Solutions Europe. “Especially as these attractive models with their compact 360° design, are easy to use, easy to install and easy to maintain and have 20% lower energy consumption than the models they replace.”

* HyPAS (Hybrid Platform for Advanced Solutions) optimises the performance of Kyocera MFPs through a series of custom, integrated software applications to enhance information sharing, to optimise resources and to improve existing, as well as future document workflows.
