New Epson Replaceable-Ink-Pack Models Feature Enterprise Security, Manageability

Epson WorkForce WF-M5799

Epson America today announced its new WorkForce Pro WF-M5000 Printer Series. Powered by Epson’s PrecisionCore inkjet-printing technology, Epson says the WF-M5000 Series offers low-cost black-and-white printing (no color printing) and delivers “Performance Beyond Laser,” with significantly lower energy consumption and color supplies’ costs.

With Epson’s Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPs), the WF-M5799 copier/MFP ($399.99) and WF-M5299 standalone printer are designed to minimize ink-replacement interventions, and enable users to print up to 40,000 ISO pages (black) without changing the ink pack. They also feature up to 830-sheet total paper capacity with an optional second paper tray. Print speed is rated at ISO 24 ppm.

The WorkForce Pro WF-M5000 Series is now available through authorized Epson BusinessFirst resellers.

For integration and administration in managed IT environments, the WF-M5000 Series also includes PCL 5 and PostScript 3 emulation print drivers, plus compatibility with ISV and third-party software solutions such as Nuance Equitrac Office/Express, Nuance eCopy ShareScan, PaperCut, and nddPrint through the Epson Open Platform.

Epson says the new models are equipped with an intuitive user interface, advanced inkjet-nozzle verification technology, and a robust paper output tray, as previously introduced with the Epson WorkForce Enterprise Series MFPs. They also provide various security features and are enabled for remote printer data collection with managed print services (MPS) software solutions such as PrintFleet, ECi (FMAudit), and others.

The WF-M5000 Series also features mobile printing from smartphones and tablets, printing directly from user-based accounts at cloud-based document-storage and sharing Web sites, and feature wired and wireless connectivity.

The new models use Epson’s DuraBrite pigment-based black ink:

Replacement ink consists of:

M02 Black Yield: ISO pages — 5,000 pages
M02XL Black Yield: ISO pages — 10,000 pages
M02XXL Black Yield: ISO pages — 40,000 pages
