The power and productivity that every office needs
Equipped with many of the advanced performance
features that have made Sharp’s colour MFPs so
successful, our new black & white MFPs are perfect for
all busy offices and any medium to large workgroup.
Designed with the environment in mind
As well as being equipped with a manual power save button, to save
energy and reduce running costs, the Energy Star certified MX-M503N,
MX-M453N and MX-M363N benefit from an industry-leading design
that cuts night energy consumption right down to a single watt - just
Combining fast colour network scanning capabilities with
powerful print, copy and fax features, the MX-M503N,
MX-M453N and MX-M363N have all the functionality
and speed you need to put them at the heart of your
office operations. They’re easy to use, too.
enough to receive faxes.
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.
A retractable keyboard makes data entry and emailing
quick and simple. And there’s a large, 8.5” colour
touch-screen LCD display with thumbnail views that
makes even the most advanced features instantly and
intuitively accessible, which can be configured to give
different users their own home screens with
customised keys.
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.
