Kyocera launches new colour printer range

17 November 2008

Colour for demanding desktop users

Kyocera today announced the launch of three new colour ECOSYS printers in its workgroup range. The FS-C5100DN, FS-C5200DN and FS-C5300DN all offer increased print speed of up to 26 ppm, brilliant office print quality as well as enhanced functionality.

These brand new colour laser printers are designed by F.A. Porsche and incorporate many innovations for increased quality, performance and environmental awareness. They also feature a newly developed print controller that supports the increased engine speed and provides sophisticated functionality to users and administrators.

Each printer offers superior colour quality through new spherical toner that that produces sharp lines and text and clear, well defined graphics and results in 30% less toner consumption than previous models.

The printers also incorporate a new printer controller with integrated Multibit technology (4bit) that delivers print quality equivalent to 9600 dpi in a broader spectrum of colours for more natural, lifelike images.

Automatic colour calibration, cleaning and registration ensure colour consistency, while an optional colour optimiser plug-in for the KX Driver enables users to match their corporate colours perfectly, making the printers suitable for letterhead stationery and marketing documents, as well as reports, spreadsheets and everyday business documents.

All three models come with a network interface, USB host interface for printing from USB memory devices and double sided printing as standard.

The FS-C5300DN and FS-C5200DN come with a standard paper cassette of 500 sheets plus a 150-sheet multipurpose tray (MPT), while the FS-C5100DN has a 250-sheet cassette and a 150-sheet MPT. An optional paper feeder is available for special media, such as glossy coated paper and envelopes.

The FS-C5100/5200 and 5300DN are the new professional colour business-entry printers for users demanding high quality and functionality as well as an appealing total cost of ownership. The integrated double-sided functionality contributes to the environmental protection by reducing paper consumption up to 50%.

The FS-C5300DN features brand new controller functions such as ‘control panel timeout’ eliminates performance bottlenecks in workgroups. The improved Print Job handling allows easy monitoring, control and cancellation of print jobs via the Command Center. This improves printing efficiency and reduces the administrator’s workload.

Nigel Allen, Head of Product Management at Kyocera said: “Users now expect more from their colour printer: higher volumes, crisper output and faster speeds and a low TCO. The FS-C5100/5200/5300 meets all these criteria and also offers duplex printing as standard. These high capacity machines are aimed at users that want to extend their colour printing capabilities in the workplace.”
