• The Sharp MX-M1100/M950/M850 document systems have been engineered and built
from the ground up to handle the rigid demands of production environments, easily
producing hundreds of thousands of pages per month.
• Reliability, durability, and productivity were key components in Sharp’s engineering
philosophy and design specifications when developing these high-volume workhorses.
With new standards, new markets, and new benchmarks, these high-speed monochrome
document systems fit perfectly into CRDs, corporate offices, and the most challenging
high-volume environments.
• Each MX-M1100/M950/M850 document system can be customised with a variety of
options to create a unique solution for every challenging production setting. Whether you
choose the 85-ppm solution for walk-up or corporate environments, the mid-range 95ppm alternative, or the powerful 110-ppm system, you can be assured that Sharp can
configure a system that’s right for any environment.

HIGH PERFORMANCE
From conception to execution, the goal in any production environment is performance.
And that’s why Sharp engineered breakthrough performance features into the
MX-M1100/M950/M850—precision design characteristics you can’t see but will
certainly appreciate in daily use.
SUPERIOR PAPER SUPPORT
Among the best in class by virtually all measures, the support includes an eight-way
paper supply and a paper capacity of up to 8,050 sheets.
HIGH-VISIBILITY CONTROL PANEL
The 10.4-inch colour LCD touch-screen display, with a job status lamp that is easily
visible from across the room, helps you intuitively navigate any job.
FAST PRINT PERFORMANCE
A high-performance RISC processor draws maximum performance from the printer
ENGINEERING
engine to achieve an amazing 110 prints per minute on A4-size (8 1/2" x 11") paper. And
the MX-M950 at 95 ppm and the MX-M850 at 85 ppm also deliver high-speed print
performance.
PRECISION
ADVANCED SCANNING CAPABILITY
Sharp’s large-capacity Duplex Single Pass Feeder (DSPF) with duplex scanning
technology scans two-sided documents in a single pass. For maximum productivity and
minimal paper handling, Sharp’s DSPF can handle up to 250 sheets at impressively fast
scanning speeds of 120 opm for the MX-M1100/M950 and 85 opm for the MX-M850.
STANDARD NETWORK INTERFACE
These powerful machines are fully network-ready and offer Web-based device
management for easy configuration and set-up.
QUIET OPERATION
Precision engineering for proven durability and surprisingly quiet operation make them
easy to own and work with.
EASY SERVICEABILITY
Full front access to all key machine components ensures easy maintenance and thus
maximum uptime. Durable organic photoconductor drum (OPC) has a long service life of
up to one million copies. Since 500,000 copies can be made before periodical
maintenance is required, machine downtime is reduced.
*First print out time based on A4-size (8 1/2" x 11") paper.

ENGINEERED FOR RELIABILITY
Developer Cooling Systems
The MX-M1100/M950/M850’s forced-air cooling system for the
developer unit helps prevent excessive heat build-up to keep image
quality stable even in high-volume environments.
Multi-Feed Detection Sensor (MX-M1100, MX-M950)
The precision engineering design of the Sharp Multi-Feed Detection System employs
ultrasonic technology to help diagnose and detect misfeeds from the document feeder as
well as from the paper feed section of the paper trays.
Independently Driven Units
Independent motor units are employed for essential functions of the
MX-M1100/M950/M850, such as the paper pick-up unit and the paper
transfer unit. This design improvement provides highly reliable operation
and helps ensure dependable paper transportation throughout each
reprographic cycle, increasing durability for the long run.
Slide-Out Components for Easy Maintenance
This design makes service and general maintenance of the MX-M1100/
M950/M850 easier by allowing technicians to slide out main units to
adjust or exchange sub-components, thus eliminating the need to
disassemble the entire machine.
Highly Rigid Main Frame
For increased reliability and durability, a newly developed, highly
rigid frame better protects and isolates critical machine components.
It also ensures that the MX-M1100/M950/M850 can withstand heavy
use from high-speed, high-volume output.
4
FLEXIBILITY AND VERSATILITY
The flexibility to configure a production document system for a variety of applications
and the versatility of that system in accommodating a wide base of users are both key to
successful implementation in the workplace. Sharp’s MX-M1100/M950/M850 document
systems excel in allowing users to customise hardware and software
configurations—from paper input and document management to finished output. For
added versatility, businesses can opt for powerful network printing that offers point-andclick simplicity.
PERFORMANCE
BREAKTHROUGH
FEATURES THAT KEEP YOUR BUSINESS MOVING
The MX-M1100/M950/M850 document systems come with 1.28GB of standard memory,
making them the productivity hubs of busy workgroups. An 80-GB HDD ensures robust
processing power for large, complex jobs.
• MX-M1100/M950/M850 document systems can copy and print on a weight index of up
to 300 g/m2, so a variety of documents can be produced in-house.
• The security-enabled network interface card provides highly secure operation by
restricting access to the MX-M1100/M950/M850 on your office network. Only PCs that
have their IP address and/or their MAC (media access control) address registered can
gain access to the MX-M1100/M950/M850. Attempted access from an unknown IP or
MAC address will be denied, preventing unauthorised use.
• Versatile application integration with Sharp OSA technology enables users to access
network applications right from the LCD panel.
