Improved Imaging System
High-Resolution Output
Sharp thoroughly revamped its imaging process for the
MX-7040N/6240N; now a high-performance processor, a new
developer, and the third-generation high-grade toner combine
to provide breathtaking image quality. The new toner expands the
colour reproducibility range by 15% compared to conventional
toners, for a more natural rendering of clear blue skies, emerald
green oceans, and other colour images. The smaller particle size of
the toner and the developer allows for reduced graininess and
clear reproduction of fine lines, fine text, and halftone colours.
The MX-7040N/6240N delivers 600-dpi copying and razor-sharp
1,200-dpi printing—without sacrificing output speed. Digital
smoothing technology enhances the print and copy resolution to
the equivalent of 9,600 x 600 dpi for smooth reproduction of fine
lines. Fine-grained photographs, detailed illustrations and graphs,
and small text come out crisp and clear.

Easy, High-Quality Copying
Built to deliver automated, high-quality copying, the MX-7040N/
6240N can reproduce maps with crisp, clear text and can remove
unnecessary background colour from newspaper and magazine
copies. Here’s how it works: Auto Colour Mode analyses the
contents of each page to distinguish between different
components, such as photos and text, and then selects the
appropriate copy mode for that page. Auto Colour Selection
automatically determines whether a page is colour or B/W and then
copies that page accordingly. Auto Exposure automatically
removes unnecessary background colour for clearer output.

By discharging old
developer little by little and
continuously replacing it
with new developer, this
system prevents developer
deterioration, ensuring
stable print quality over the

Sharpdesk Document Management Software
Sharpdesk is an original Sharp application that provides integrated
desktop management of documents in over 200 file formats,
including scanned paper-based documents and those created with
popular applications such as Word. With Sharpdesk, documents
can be organised, edited, searched, and distributed with simple
drag-and-drop operation. Features include thumbnail viewing,
annotation tools for paper-free proofreading, optical character
recognition, the ability to combine different types of files into a
single document, and more.
MULTI-LAYERED SECURITY
Data Encryption and Overwriting
User Authentication
Digital copier/printers and MFDs can retain hundreds of pages of
confidential information from previous jobs on their hard disks or
internal memory. To safeguard such information from
unauthorised access, the MX-7040N/6240N automatically
encrypts document data stored on the hard disk and in the
address book. Standard-equipped security features also provide up
to seven automatic overwrites of data generated for each job,
password protection of Document Filing data, and more.
The MX-7040N/6240N 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

Data Encryption
With this function, a watermark, such as “Confidential” or “Not
for Copy,” can be embedded onto a document. If that document
is copied, the watermark will appear, alerting the user not to
distribute it.
The data generated
for each job is
automatically erased
once that job is
finished

Note: Contact a Sharp customer representative for details on activating
these security functions.
Document Control Function (option)
Document Control prevents unauthorised copying, scanning,
faxing, and filing of confidential documents by embedding copy
prevention data onto a document. When that data is detected,
any unauthorised attempts to copy will be cancelled or will result
in only blank-page output.
Note: Requires optional Data Security Kit. May not work for certain types of
documents or paper.

Tracking Information Print
This function prints the MFD user’s name, the date, the MFD’s
serial number, job ID, and other specifics on printouts, making it
possible to track documents and prevent data theft.
Other Key Features
• Supports the IEEE 802.1X standard for port-based network
access control and the IEEE 2600 standard for hardcopy device
and system security
• IP/MAC address filtering restricts unauthorised access

MFD
ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY
Outstanding Energy Efficiency
To reduce power consumption, Sharp has applied its advanced technologies across all areas of this MFD, including the hardware, software,
electrical system, and supplies. As a result, the MX-7040N/6240N boasts one of the lowest power consumption rates in its class.
• The MX-7040N/6240N has an Enhanced Auto Power
Shut-Off mode. Based on usage patterns established over a
four-week period, this function automatically determines the
optimal length of time to let elapse before turning the power
off. To accommodate intensive use of the MFD on a specific day
or time, users can manually set the elapse time to suit their
specific usage patterns.
• Eco Scan function saves energy by turning off power to the
fusing system during jobs that don’t require any printing, such as
Image Sending and Document Filing.
• Power ON/OFF Schedule function automatically turns the
MX-7040N/6240N on or off according to time schedules set by
the administrator.

Versatile Paper Handling
Multiple Distribution of Scanned Files
The MX-7040N/6240N accommodates a wide range of paper sizes,
from A5R to SRA3. You can do full-bleed printing of A3-size
data onto SRA3 (450 x 320 mm) paper, without loss of image area.
The MX-7040N/6240N can handle heavy paper stock up to 300
g/m2, overhead transparencies, embossed paper, and other types
of paper, further expanding the range of printing applications.
With just a few taps on the LCD touchscreen, you can choose
different ways to distribute your scanned documents. Scan to
E-mail sends documents as an e-mail attachment. Scan to FTP
Server scans documents directly to an FTP server for storage. Scan
to Desktop sends scanned documents directly to your PC
desktop. Scan to Network Folder (SMB) sends files to a shared
folder on a networked Windows PC. Scan to External Memory
Device scans documents directly to USB memory devices. Scan to
Fax enables conventional faxing or Internet faxing.

Direct Printing*1
The MX-7040N/6240N can print PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and XPS*2 files
without using the printer driver. Also there’s a USB port beneath its
control panel, which comes in handy when printing data directly
from USB memory devices—an indispensable function for users who
are in a hurry or who want quick machine access without a PC.
The optional MX-FX11 Fax Expansion Kit turns the MX-7040N/
6240N into a 33.6 Kbps Super G3 fax machine capable of
remarkably high-speed transmission. The MX-7040N/6240N can
also accommodate Internet faxing,*1 allowing faxes to be sent to
and received from other T-37-compliant Internet fax machines via
the Internet. Also because the MX-7040N/6240N supports Direct
SMTP, outgoing Internet faxes do not go through your mail server,
making transmission faster and cheaper. For added efficiency, the
PC-Fax/PC-Internet Fax*2 function lets you send documents
created on your PC directly to a recipient’s fax machine via a phone
line or the Internet without printing to paper.
*1: Requires optional MX-FWX1.
*2: PC-Fax requires MX-FX11; PC-Internet Fax requires optional MX-FWX1.
*1: Direct printing may not support all PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and XPS formats.
*2: Direct XPS printing requires optional MX-PUX1.
Paperless Faxing with Inbound Routing
USB memory
Network folder
FTP server
Paperless faxing with inbound routing lets you check incoming
faxes via e-mail before printing them out. It can also forward
incoming faxes to destinations—another fax/Internet fax machine,
an FTP server, a network folder (SMB), or a PC desktop—specified
for each sender.
One Scan/Multi Format
Simplified System Settings
This function allows you to specify image resolution or colour for
each mode of broadcasting employed. For example, when sending
the same image data to both a fax and an e-mail destination, you
can send a B/W version via fax and a full-colour version via e-mail.
Machine features and settings, including address book control and
document filing management, can be configured either through
Web-based device management or from the control panel of the
machine.
