Ecology of Coccinellidae
Coccinellids are small insects,
ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm
(0.04 to 0.4 inches), and are
commonly yellow, orange, or
scarlet with small black spots
on their wing covers, with black
legs, head and antennae. A very
large number of coccinellid
species are mostly, or entirely,
black, grey, or brown and may
be difficult for
non-entomologists to recognize
as coccinellids. Conversely,
there are many small beetles
that are easily mistaken for
coccinellids, such as the tortoise

Improved Imaging System
Easy, High-Quality Copying
Sharp thoroughly revamped its imaging process for the
MX-5111N/4111N; now a high-performance processor, a new
developer, and the second-generation high-grade toner
combine to provide breathtaking image quality. The new toner
expands the colour reproducibility range 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.
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. These two functions allow the MX-5111N/4111N to print out
maps with crisp, clear text and to automatically remove
unnecessary background colour from newspaper and magazine
copies for clearer output.

Document Control Function
SSL and IPsec Data Encryption
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.
To ensure an extremely high level of network security, the
MX-5111N/4111N employs SSL (secure sockets layer) and IPsec (IP
security) data encryption technologies. SSL encryption prevents
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). IPsec, an obligatory part of the IPv6
Internet protocol, encrypts and authenticates traffic between
specified parties.
Note: Requires Data Security Kit. May not work for certain types of
documents or paper.

User Authentication
The MX-5111N/4111N 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-5111N/4111N works with an
external Active Directory server to extend user authentication
to multiple MFDs and a greater number of users.
The MX-5111N/4111N’s initialisation function allows confidential
information to be erased at the administrator’s discretion via the
MFD’s system settings. Initialising an MFD when it’s taken out of
service prevents data leakage and provides considerable peace of

Sharp OSA Network Scanner Tool
This client-based scan-to-desktop option is the ideal document
management system for small workgroups or offices that don’t have
servers. Sharp OSA Network Scanner Tool provides centralised
scan/print user profiles to give everyone in the office easy one-touch
scanning to their PC from any networked MFD—without
complicated settings. Scanned documents can be quickly and easily
printed, filed, previewed, shared, and stored to save time and
improve document workflow. Sharp OSA Network Scanner Tool
automatically names PDF files
based on scanned-document
titles and can convert scanned
documents into text with the
OCR engine to create
searchable PDF files.
* Requires optional MX-AMX2 and/or MX-AMX3.
