Work Better—
Try a Solid Solution by Sharp
When the document demands of your busy office call for
more than just basic copier/printer functions, it’s time to put
the MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N on your team.
Along with business-essential functions, this productive B/W
MFD offers convenient full-colour network scanning, reliable
data protection, and the workflow-enhancing solutions of
Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture).
Fast output and an optional 100-sheet RSPF (reversing
single pass feeder) ensure smooth B/W copy/print
performance. There is no better way to boost office
efficiency than colour network scanning, which enables the
digitisation of paper-based documents for storage and
distribution. It’s as easy as making a copy!
Plenty of finishing options, Sharp’s award winning
multi-layered security, low energy consumption, and ease of
use are all the more reason to make the switch to Sharp’s
MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N.
Style, Function, and Ease of Use
The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N is an attractive,
user-friendly addition to any workplace. Designed for easy
navigation, the control panel features a 7.0-inch W-VGA
touch-screen LCD that offers a choice of six screen colours
and provides both thumbnail display and data file previews.

The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N delivers a fast output of
50/45/36/28 cpm/ppm*, enabling the production of
large-volume documents that include memory-intensive graphics
in less time. The first copy comes out in just 3.9/3.9/4.6/4.6
seconds to save valuable time when performing multiple
short-run jobs. What’s more, the short, straight paper path

Productive Collated Output from Memory
Copy
Print
The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N’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.
Advanced Finishing
Copy
Print
The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N makes it easy to create
professional-looking booklets. The Saddle Stitch Finisher option
staples documents up to 50 sheets and can fold and staple sets of
documents up to 15 sheets to make completed booklets. It also
features a 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 simple
sorting and stapling, while another
option, a 4,000-sheet Finisher, speeds
through large projects to give you
complete control over deadlines. Plus, an
optional Punch Module allows you to
punch holes in documents for easy filing.

An optional RSPF (reversing single pass feeder) efficiently feeds in
up to 100 pages of either one- or two-sided originals at a
scanning speed of 50 opm and 20 opm, respectively.
For high-volume work, the MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N
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. When a tray runs
out of paper, 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 without worry.

batches of 100 + 100 + 70 sheets and automatically stored on the
MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N’s hard disk*2. Users can then
print the entire document in a single run.

SECURITY
Powerful Multi-Layered Security
With multiple levels of network and data security to cover a wide range of security needs, Sharp’s security solutions
protect your business assets and bring peace of mind. The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N 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-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N embeds copy prevention
data onto a document when it is first copied or printed. It will then
detect this data 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
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-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N prevents unauthorised
use by requiring passwords for machine access. This safeguarded
solution can register up to 1,000 users in three access levels as
Administrator, User, or Guest and can designate to which function
user authentication applies. The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/
M282N can, for example, be set to allow copying by all users
while restricting colour scanning to designated users. The
MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N
works with an external Active
Directory server to extend user
authentication to multiple MFDs and
a greater number of users.
User authentication
IPv6 and IPsec Support
The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N 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.

Additionally, the E-Mail Status and Alert function generates e-mail
messages to notify the administrator when action or maintenance is
required.
Web-based device management
User Control
The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N has capabilities to
restrict machine access and usage. Easily manage overall
running costs by setting access rules through a Web browser to
limit or restrict functions, such as the printing out or copying of
large-volume documents.
• Authority Groups – Use of each function can be restricted
individually.
• User control and account – Up to 1,000 password-protected user
accounts can be created for customised access. Accounts can be
set up for individuals, groups or departments, in conjunction
with the authority group setting. Maximum limits for printing or
copying pages can be set for each account.
Printer Status Monitor
If the MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/

The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N’s logically designed
control panel features a wide, clear, W-VGA-resolution
touch-screen LCD with easy-to-follow guidance. For example,
when adjusting staple/sort finishing or making pamphlets, the LCD
displays step-by-step instructions to guide you through the
necessary procedures. Pushing the Home button, even in the
middle of an operation, takes you back to the Start screen.
Moreover you can quickly access the most frequently used
functions and settings by programming them into My Menu.

Thumbnail Display and Previews
Making the search for files easier and more convenient than ever,
thumbnails and up-close previews of Document Filing data files, as
well as conventional file names, can be displayed on the
MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N’s LCD control panel. To help
users decide which documents to print out, the LCD can also
display thumbnails and previews of incoming faxes and Internet
faxes. The MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N even prevents
errors in copying, scanning, or saving documents to its hard disk
by showing previews of those jobs on the LCD before actually
executing them, making it easy to confirm finishing options, scan
settings, and other such items.

external account software right from the LCD control panel,
offering a new realm of control and convenience. Since Sharp OSA
utilises industry-standard network protocols, such as XML and
SOAP, the MX-M502N/M452N/M362N/M282N can easily integrate
with document management systems, enterprise resource
planning software, workflow applications, and more.
* Requires optional MX-AMX2 and/or MX-AMX3.

Job Status Screen
Whether printing or copying, the control panel displays a list of all
jobs, showing you at a glance the jobs in progress and the position
of your job in the queue. With a few quick touches of the LCD
screen, the Priority Printing function lets you easily change the
job queue order or delete jobs that are no longer needed.
Note: The screen shown above is just a sample.
Screen layouts and user interfaces can be
specifically designed to accommodate
customised application programmes.
