Medium Business 31 - 50 cpm
31 cpm Black & White and Colour Copier / Printer
Fast, Quality Performance from a Safeguarded Solution.
Sporting an impressive array of original, cutting-edge technologies in a compact frame and a new design, the MX-3100N all-in-one colour MFP from Sharp offers outstanding speed, print quality, and data protection.
The MX-3100N handles copy/print jobs for both colour and B/W documents at speeds of up to 31 pages per minute, and 1,200-dpi resolution ensures that the print quality is every bit as high as the output is fast. The MX-3100N’s integrated document management system brings efficiency into the picture with workflow-enhancing functions. In addition, Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture) 3.0 clears the way for third-party software developers to create customised applications for office-specific control and convenience.
To safeguard confidential data, the MX-3100N employs Sharp’s powerful, industry-leading security solutions in a multi-layered approach that protects against data leakage and unauthorised access.
