New Desktop A4 Color Multifunctionals from Ricoh Feature Enterprise-Feature Set, ICE

Ricoh Aficio MP C401

Ricoh Americas today rolled out its new Ricoh MP C401 ($5,880 MSRP) and MP C401SR ($6,405 MSRP) color MFPs that is says provide all of the capabilities of its new intelligent MFP platform in a compact footprint. Ricoh says both 42-ppm MFPs, which are available through Ricoh dealers, are priced low at the level of their predecessor 32-ppm models.

Both models are the same, except the MP C401SR comes standard with a 250-sheet internal finisher for stapling print jobs up to 50-pages in length.

Designed for offices with limited space, the MP C401 series prints on media up to 8.5 x 14 inches in size at resolution of up to 1,200 dpi. Ricoh says the MFPs can serve as standalone devices, or as part of a networked fleet in an enterprise. Along with a small footprint – 24 inches wide x 22 inches deep for the MP C401SR, which includes 250-sheet internal finishing – Ricoh says the MFPs offer far more power than competitive desktop MFPs, due to their robust document-handling capabilities, along with standard, advanced features. They also meet new, stricter standards for Energy Star (with 2.0 certification), and have earned an EPEAT Gold eco-friendly rating for the U.S. market.

A new 10.1-inch-wide Super VGA Smart Operation Panel is optional, and provides tablet-like drag-and-drop, and pinch-flick-and-swipe action. With the optional Browser Unit, the panel provides access to cloud-based document management and printing services through Ricoh’s Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE). Users can scan documents and files to popular Web services, converting the documents into searchable PDF documents on the fly.

The MP C401 and MP C401SR also support Ricoh’s Smart Device Print&Scan app, which enables iOS and Android smartphone and tablet users to print to and scan from the MFPs. There’s also optional Ricoh HotSpot printing, which enables smartphone and tablet users to print via email submission, mobile app, or the Web.

Eco-friendly features include standard automatic duplexing, customizable print quotas, and an eco-friendly indicator that prominently displays paper usage. The MFPs can also be programmed to automatically power up in the morning and power down at night, or according to any schedule a customer prefers.

For security, there’s password-protected, user-specific authentication; address book and stored document encryption; and a DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) that destroys latent images and stored data on the hard drive. A new Mandatory Security Information Printing feature can apply name, time, and login of the authorized user on output.
