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.
New Design Brings Style and
Ease of Use
A new dark-coloured control panel gives the MX-3100N a
distinct design advantage and brings polished chic to office
settings. This stylish new design does more than just enhance
décor; it also makes the MX-3100N a particularly
user-friendly solution. The new 8.5-inch, W-VGA,
touch-screen LCD control panel gives users a choice of six
screen colours and provides thumbnail display and previews
of data files as well as system/job status display, making even
the MX-3100N’s most advanced functions easy to navigate.

Productive Collated Output from Memory
Copy
Print
The MX-3100N’s Scan Once/Print Many function only requires a
single scan of a multi-page original for copying, and the RIP
Once/Print Many function only needs to download print data once
from the PC for printing. The machine then automatically saves
the data into memory and outputs collated sets of copies or
printouts in the proper page order (electronic sorting), with each
set offset stacked for easier retrieval.
Polished Finishing
Copy
Print
The MX-3100N makes it easy to create professional-looking
booklets. The chapter divide function lets you print out all
chapters starting on either odd- or even-numbered pages to give
documents a consistent, polished look. The newly designed
Saddle Stitch Finisher option staples documents up to 50 pages
long and can fold and staple sets of documents
up to 15 pages long to make completed
booklets. It also features a new bi-folding
function that folds individual pages, up to
size A3, in half—eliminating the tedious task
of folding pages by hand. A space-efficient
Finisher is also available for jobs that require
only simple sorting and stapling. Plus, an
optional Punch Module allows you to punch
holes in documents for easy filing.

The MX-3100N can make two-sided copies and printouts using
its built-in stackless duplex module, effectively reducing paper
costs as well as saving filing space. Duplex copying is even more
effective when used together with the standard-equipped
100-sheet RSPF (reversing single pass feeder), which efficiently
feeds in either one- or two-sided originals.
Job Build for Large-Volume Scanning
Copy
Print
For high-volume work, the MX-3100N can accommodate an
optional 3,500-sheet large-capacity
tray and stand with 2 x 500-sheet
paper drawers for a total capacity of
5,600 sheets. The Auto Tray
Switching function automatically
switches to another paper tray
filled with the same size paper,
allowing you to do extra-large
volume jobs.
Copy

Network Tandem Function
The MX-3100N easily handles large-volume copy jobs exceeding
the RSPF’s 100-sheet*1 capacity. For example, a 270-sheet original
can be scanned as batches of 100 + 100 + 70 sheets and
automatically stored on the MX-3100N’s hard disk*2. Users can
then print the entire document in a single run.
When two MX-3100Ns are connected to the same office network,
you can use both simultaneously to double copying/printing
output to up to 62

SUPERB PRINT QUALITY
Improved Imaging System
Copy
Print
Sharp thoroughly revamped its imaging process for the
MX-3100N; now a high-performance processor, a new developer,
and the newly developed high grade toner combine to provide
breathtaking image quality. The smaller particle size of the newly
developed high grade toner and the developer allows for reduced
graininess and clear reproduction of fine lines and halftone colours.
True 1,200 x 1,200-dpi Printing
Print
The MX-3100N’s print engine provides razor-sharp 1,200-dpi
printing—without sacrificing output speed—for ultra-clear image
quality. Fine lines and small text come out crisper and easier to
read.

Easy, High-Quality Copying
Copy
Due to the fact that the MX-3100N features third-generation
Sharp Auto Colour Mode, anyone—with just a push of the start
button—can easily and automatically make copies that are faithful
to the original. Here is how it works. Auto Colour Selection
automatically determines whether a page is colour or B/W and
selects the appropriate copy mode for that page. Auto Colour
Mode analyses the contents of each page, distinguishing between
different components, such as photos and text. This is what allows
the MX-3100N to print out maps with crisp, clear text and to
automatically remove the background colour on newspaper and
magazine copies for clearer output. When copying in B/W,
multi-level error diffusion technology provides dramatically
smoother gradation in photos and subtle greyscale images.

Windmills of the Netherlands
For centuries, the Dutch used windmills
to mill corn into flour, drain water from
the land, cut timber into boards, and
carry out various other industrial tasks.
At one time, over 9,000 windmills dotted
the Dutch countryside. And, although
that number has dwindled down to just
over a thousand, many people still
associate the Netherlands with its
majestic windmills.

To harness the power of the wind, the
Dutch built a variety of windmills, with the name of each type determined by the
construction, appearance, or function of the mill. These mills sported a somewhat primitive
design that used canvas sails and that, unlike their more automated British counterparts,
had to be turned by hand to face the wind.

SECURITY
Industry-Leading Multi-Layered Security
With multiple levels of network and data security to cover a wide range of security needs, Sharp’s industry-leading
security solutions protect your business assets and bring peace of mind. The MX-3100N safeguards sensitive data with
powerful, enhanced security functions that eliminate the worry of unauthorised use and guarantee greater protection for
your confidential information.

Document Control Function
Document Control prevents unauthorised copying, scanning,
faxing, and filing of confidential documents. This is how it works:
the MX-3100N embeds copy prevention data onto a document
when it is first copied or printed. It will then detect this data, for
example, the next time someone tries to make a copy of the
document. Any unauthorised attempts to copy a Document
Controlled-document will simply be cancelled or result in the
output of a blank page.
Note: Requires optional Data Security Kit. May not work for certain types of
documents or paper.
Example: Unauthorised copying
Print Hold and Confidential Print
To keep others from seeing confidential documents as they are
being printed out, the MX-3100N’s Print Hold function stores
print data on its hard disk and withholds output until the user
executes a print command from the control panel. For added
security, the Confidential Print function requires the user to enter
in a PIN (personal identification number) at the machine before
printing can begin.
Secure Sockets Layer
SSL (secure sockets layer) enables the encryption of data
communications to prevent data leakage through the network
when printing via IPP, browsing secure Web pages (HTTPS), or
communicating via e-mail (SMTP and POP3) or FTP (FTPS).
User Authentication
The MX-3100N prevents unauthorised use by requiring
passwords for machine access. The MX-3100N can register up to
1,000 users in three access levels as Administrator, User, and
Guest. And it can also designate to which function user
authentication applies. For example,
the MX-3100N can be set to allow
B/W copying by all users while
restricting colour copying to
designated users.

The MX-3100N supports IPv6, the next-generation Internet protocol.
An obligatory part of IPv6 is IPsec (IP Security), a set of protocols for
securing Internet protocol (IP) communications. IPsec encrypts and
authenticates traffic between specified parties, giving
IPsec-compatible products an extremely high level of network security.
