Digital Full Colour Multifunctional System
The Ideal Light Production Centre
for Fast, High-Quality Output in Colour and B / W
Network Print
Network Scan
A High-Performance Hub
for Busy Offices
Because speedy output, outstanding print quality, and
reliable data protection lie at the heart of fast, efficient
document management, Sharp’s MX-5001N/5000N
compact, full-colour MFP, with its polished design and
original, cutting-edge technologies, is the ideal light
production centre for busy offices.
The MX-5001N/5000N enhances workflow with its
integrated document management system and boosts
productivity with its short warm-up time, copy/print speeds
of up to 50 pages per minute in both colour and B/W, 1,200dpi printing resolution, and brilliant colour. And Sharp OSA
(Open Systems Architecture) 3.0 makes it possible for thirdparty software developers to create customised applications
for office-specific control and convenience.
For unparalleled data protection, the MX-5001N/5000N
employs multiple layers of Sharp’s powerful, industry-leading
security solutions to safeguard confidential information
against leakage and unauthorised access.
New Design Brings Style and
Ease of Use
A new dark-coloured control panel gives the MX-5001N/
5000N a distinct design advantage and brings polished chic
to office settings. But this stylish new design does more than
just enhance décor; it also makes the MX-5001N/5000N 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 previews of copy/send/save jobs,
making even the MX-5001N/5000N’s most advanced
functions easy to navigate.
Super-Efficient Colour and B/W Output
The tandem printing engine with four in-line drums helps the
MX-5001N/5000N deliver a fast output of 50 cpm/ppm* in full
colour and in B/W. And the first copy comes out in just 5.9
seconds in full colour and 4.1 seconds in B/W. What’s more, its
short, straight paper path minimises misfeeds
to save you paper and toner costs.
* A4 (8 1/2" x 11"), long-edge feeding
Productive Collated Output from Memory
The MX-5001N/5000N’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
The MX-5001N/5000N makes it easy to create professionallooking 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 bifolding 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, while another
option, a 4,000-sheet Finisher, speeds
through large projects to give you
complete control over deadlines. And, an
optional Punch Module allows you to
punch holes in documents for easy filing.

Automatic Document Feeding
Saddle stitching
The MX-5001N/5000N 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 DSPF/RSPF.
Network Tandem Function
Hole punching
The MX-5001N comes standard with a highly efficient 150-sheet
DSPF (duplex single pass feeder), which scans both pages of
two-sided documents up to A3 (11" x 17") in size in one pass.
Doing away with the reversing circuit minimises paper misfeeds
and vastly improves reliability. The MX-5000N is equipped with a
100-sheet RSPF (reversing single pass feeder).
Built-in Stackless Duplex Module
When two MX-5001N/5000Ns are connected to the same office
network, you can use both simultaneously to double copying/
printing output to up to 100 cpm/ppm. Large-volume jobs can be
completed with ease, enabling you to meet tight deadlines.
Large Paper Capacity
For high-volume work, the MX-5001N/5000N 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.
Job Build for Large-Volume Scanning
The MX-5001N/5000N easily handles large-volume copy jobs
exceeding the DSPF/RSPF’s 150/100-sheet*1 capacity. For example,
a 270-sheet original can be scanned as batches of 150 + 120 (or
100 + 100 + 70) sheets and automatically stored on the
MX-5001N/5000N’s hard disk*2. Users can then print the entire
document in a single run.
*1: A4 (8 1/2" x 11"), 80 g/m2
*2: The number of pages that can be stored for the Job Build function
depends on the machine’s HDD capacity and other conditions.
Supports Most Office Environments
• The MX-5001N/5000N works as a network printer with the
latest and most commonly used operating systems and network
protocols, including IPv6, and even in mixed OS environments.
With a 64-bit, 1 GHz CPU, you get fast, powerful network
printing via the 1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet standard.
• The MX-5001N/5000N supports PCL5c and PCL6 printer
languages. For compatibility with PostScript 3, the MX-PKX1
PS3 Expansion Kit is available.
Windows Server®
Improved Imaging System
Sharp thoroughly revamped its imaging process for the
MX-5001N/5000N; now a high-performance processor, a new
developer, and the new Mycrostoner-HG (High Grade) combine
to provide breathtaking image quality. The smaller particle size of
Mycrostoner-HG and the developer allows for reduced graininess
and clear reproduction of fine lines and halftone colours.
True 1,200 x 1,200-dpi Printing
The MX-5001N/5000N’s print engine provides razor-sharp 1,200dpi 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
Because the MX-5001N/5000N 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’s 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-5001N/5000N 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, multilevel 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.
Windmills of the Netherlands
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.

Document Control Function
Document Control prevents unauthorised copying, scanning,
faxing, and filing of confidential documents. This is how it works:
the MX-5001N/5000N 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-5001N/5000N 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-5001N/5000N can, for example,
be set to allow B/W copying by all users while restricting colour
copying to designated users. And
the MX-5001N/5000N works with
an external Active Directory
server to extend user authentication
to multiple MFPs and a greater
number of users.
User authentication
IPv6 and IPsec Support
The MX-5001N/5000N 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
