As well as being equipped with a manual power save button, to save
energy and reduce running costs, the Energy Star certified MX-M503U,
MX-M453U and MX-M363U benefit from an industry-leading design
that cuts night energy consumption right down to a single watt - just
Just as much care has been taken with manufacturing processes and
materials. These environmentally- and user-friendly MFPs are fully
RoHS-compliant and completely free from harmful chromium and lead.
They’re designed for ease of use, too, with a handy
8.1” LCD touch-screen display making even the most
advanced features instantly and intuitively accessible.
More for your money
IT Administrators will appreciate the Remote Access
Interface which simplifies support by letting them
view and operate each machine’s front panel display
from across the network, and everyone will love the
contemporary design that makes these new MFPs a
perfect choice for any modern office.
They can also be supplied with Sharp OSA® (Open
Systems Architecture), which gives you access to a wide
range of third party software solutions that can automate
many manual office tasks, such as the storing and
management of documents, or the processing of forms.
