New Kyocera printer family reduces power consumption by 30%.

Kyocera Document Solutions announces a new generation of printers with a printer drum that lasts for up to 500,000 prints

01 October 2012

Kyocera Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today launches a new printer family for the 40 to 60ppm A4 category. These five new printer models: the FS-4300DN, FS-4200DN, FS-4100DN, FS-2100DN and FS-2100D, offer very low TEC (Typical Electricity Consumption) and lowest cost per page in their class. And, they all come with long life components as standard, with the FS-4300DN, FS-4200DN and FS-4100DN hosting a printer drum that lasts for up to 500,000 prints.

The TEC of Kyocera’s new printer family is 30% lower than its predecessors with same print speed. Lower energy consumption results in both lower electricity bills for customers and lower CO2 emissions for the environment.

The new 500,000 pages printer drum, which lasts up to 50 times longer than the competition, is the next phase of Kyocera Ecosys technology which is synonymous with long life components. Using long life components as standard gives Kyocera printers the lowest cost per page in their class, an important consideration when printing in large volumes.

Some print runs require additional security to ensure only authorised access to sensitive information. For this reason, Kyocera’s new family of printers are all equipped with Private Printing as standard. The optional Card Authentication security feature gives extra peace of mind.

“The new Kyocera generation of printers benefits from the technology used in the BLI award winning FS-4020DN, which won the BLI ‘Pick of the Year’ award in 2009 and the BLI ‘Outstanding Energy Efficiency’ award in 2011,” says Berthold Hurtz, Product Manager Kyocera Document Solutions Europe. “As the new printers are faster, more energy efficient and use more advanced technology, as well as having a new, attractive 360 degree design, we look forward to seeing how they can improve our customers’ working experience.”
