Three New MFPs for Small and Mid-Size Workgroups Round Out Toshiba’s A3 Mono Family
Following on the heels of its high-volume A3 mono MFPs introduced yesterday (see here), Toshiba America Business Solutions is following up with its next-generation mid-volume MFPs for small and mid-size workgroups, the e-STUDIO 507 series. The new e-STUDIO 507 series MFPs start at $6,885 and will be available through dealers.
Rated at up to 50 ppm at 2,400 x 600 dpi, the e-STUDIO 507 series features high toner-cartridges yields (up to 36,600 monochrome pages per toner cartridge) and maximum paper capacity up to 3,200 sheets, with maximum monthly volumes of up to 150,000 pages.
Features of note include security, mobile print and scan, and various environmental certifications. The MFPs incorporate Toshiba’s e-Bridge platform for wireless mobile print and scan from Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, and for adding optional workflow and security, including PaperCut print-management and DocuWare document-capture, routing and management.
In the eco-friendly department, the MFPs are EPEAT-registered; EPEAT is a global rating system for promoting greener electronics. The products also meet the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) compliance, and are Energy Star Tier 2-rated.
The MFPs also feature recycled plastics throughout their chassis, and use low-temperature toner, so toner can be fused to paper at lower temperatures, reducing energy costs. A Super Sleep Mode feature reduces power consumption to as little as 1.5 watts.
Toshiba also provides free toner-cartridge recycling through its “Zero Waste to Landfill” program. As a result of its partnership with Close the Loop, Toshiba accepts all brands of depleted toner cartridges. To further support its Zero Waste to Landfill initiative, Toshiba partners with Sims Recycling Solutions, allowing for the proper recycling of its e-STUDIO MFPs once they’re no longer operational.
For security, there’s a 320-GB Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) that meets U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2. By attaining this validation, Toshiba says the MFPs may be used in environments where security is critical, such as financial institutions and government. There’s also a Hard Copy Security feature to prevent the copying of documents, and an IPsec option for encrypting data sent to and from the MFP.
