A revolution in office productivity
Next-generation MFPs with unique
finger-swipe touch control
The world’s most advanced MFPs
Introducing the world’s first multifunction systems to be equipped
with ‘finger-swipe’ touch control - a design evolution which is
rapidly becoming an industry standard.
Similar technology has already revolutionised smart phones and tablet PCs. Simply
touch or tap the screen, then flick or slide for fingertip control of every document,
function and setting. Using a digital interface has never felt so natural.
Finger-swipe touch control for intuitive operation of every function
Choose to be productive
The 26 pages-per-minute (ppm)
MX-2610N and the 31 ppm MX-3110N
produce top quality colour at full speed
and come with two-sided printing,
copying, scanning and robust security
as standard. But even though they are
among the smallest A3 colour MFPs
in their class, you can also add a wide
range of extra-value options to raise
productivity right across the office.
Choose a space-saving inner finisher
with electronic sorting and offset
stacking, or a saddle-stitch finisher for
easy, professional-looking documents.
Add fax functionality, extra security,
additional paper drawers with ‘easy grip’
handles, and third party applications for
automating manual office tasks.
Sharp I MX-2610N / MX-3110N I Full Colour MFP
Embrace the future, today
These next-generation MFPs support the
very latest working practices. You can
add full internet access for browsing and
printing out web content, and use the
Sharp OSA® option to connect to the
‘Cloud’ and run Software as a Service
(SaaS) applications developed by Sharp’s
Technology Partners.
Plus, there’s a handy Remote Access
Control facility that lets support staff
perform configuration, troubleshooting
and ad hoc training across the network.
In other words, you get the power,
versatility and convenience that every
modern office needs. Even the user
guide, in digital form, can be accessed
from the control screen.
Energy efficient
The Energy Star-certified MX-2610N
and MX-3110N use Sharp’s latest
energy-saving technology for a typical
electrical consumption among the lowest
in their class. A rapid warm up time, an
efficient LED scanner, self-adjusting and
pre-set auto shut down capabilities
and a special Eco Scan Mode all help
to save money and support your
environmental objectives.

A smarter way of working
The first thing you’ll notice about your
new MX-2610N or MX-3110N is how
easy it is to use. The 10.1” LCD control
screen has the space for less clutter
and larger, clearer text, and it can be
tilted up or down for easy viewing,
even from a wheelchair.
Scan your originals - the 100-sheet
document feeder makes doublesided scanning quick and easy - and
use finger-swipe technology for total
control of your digital documents.
Preview pages in various modes 1-Page, 3D or thumbnail - then simply
touch and slide to rotate them, change
their order, add or delete pages, and
then print, file or distribute just as
you need.
It’s all customisable, too. Everyone in
your team can have a personalised
home screen for faster access to
the tools and applications they use
most often, set against a choice of 7
background styles.
Tilting finger-swipe control panel for easy page previews and editing
Integration within and beyond
the enterprise
The MX-2610N and the MX-3110N
can do so much more than the
limited printing, copying and scanning
of ordinary office machines. Add Sharp
OSA® (Open Systems Architecture), for
example, and you can turn your MFP
into a gateway to applications on
your network.
There’s even an optional Web Browsing
Kit which gives you full internet access.
So there’s no need to return to your desk
- simply access the tools and information
you need directly from the finger-swipe
control interface. But that’s not all.
The latest version of Sharp OSA* can
reach beyond your firewall, letting
you leverage the efficiency of Cloud
computing services which are rapidly
gaining popularity for their proven
functionality and low cost-per-user
for little or no up-front investment.
That means you can access a range
of ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS)
applications, developed by Sharp’s
technology partners.
* Please check availability of Sharp OSA applications.
A hub of productivity
The finger-swipe control interface makes it easy for everyone in the office to make full use of the MX-2610N and
MX-3110N’s power and versatility.
Print runs of all sizes, from just a few pages to several thousand, can be performed in colour or black and white at the full
rated speeds. For truly outstanding performance, you can link two MFPs of the same model to share a print job between
them, effectively doubling the output speed.
All-round performance
Copying is just as quick as printing.
Even when you want to copy just a
page or two. You can directly print
PDF*, TIFF and JPEG files without using
the print driver.
For longer or more complex runs, you
can scan single-sided originals at the
rate of 50 per minute, or double-sided
as fast as 20 per minute. Plus, there’s a
Job Build function which lets you scan
large-volume jobs in easily manageable
batches, which are combined for
eventual output as a single job.
Two convenient USB ports are

provided for ‘walk-up printing’
with a memory stick.
Stylish documents for clearer
From fully-finished customer-facing
proposals to internal presentations
and briefing documents, the
MX-2610N and MX-3110N lend
style and professionalism to everything
your team produces.
Specially formulated developer and
toner with Resolution Enhancement
Technology produce true 1200 x 1200
dpi print resolution and the equivalent
of 9600 x 600 dpi interpolated print
and copy resolution.
Add the space-saving inner finisher,
or saddle-stitch finisher and hole
punch module, plus fax if you need
it, increase the paper supply up to
5,600 sheets and you can create a
custom-configured MFP that’s
capable of meeting your team’s
toughest demands.
Stylish, high-quality documents
Sharp I MX-2610N / MX-3110N I Full Colour MFP
All of your documents, every day, for
any purpose. The new MX-2610N and
MX-3110N with finger-swipe control
technology takes care of them all.

Enabling the digital office
While there’ll always be a place for hard copy documents, the powerful scanning capabilities of these two new MFPs make it
easy for everyone to capture, create, store and share information in digital form. And that opens entirely new opportunities
for efficiency, creativity and productivity.
Now you can scan in full colour directly
to email, your desktop, FTP servers,
network folders and USB memory sticks
in a wide range of popular formats
including TIFF, PDF, Encrypted PDF, PDF/A
and Compact PDF*, JPEG and XPS.
To distribute your scans, simply use the
finger-swipe control interface to browse
and select email contacts. Getting your
own copy is even easier: a handy ‘Scan
to Me’ function automatically emails the
file to your inbox with a single touch.
And with the documents on your PC,
you can use Sharpdesk document
management software, which lets you
store and manage files of virtually any
format, and even combine them into
new multipage documents.
* Requires optional MX-EB11 Enhanced Compression Kit.
All-in-one performance
Scanning is first class. A resolution
that’s adjustable to 150 dpi lets
you create smaller files without
compromising clarity and, for ‘difficult’
documents, you can compensate by
adjusting contrast and sharpness.
Sharp’s OSA Network Scanning Tool
Option provides one touch scanning
to your PC or network drive. Scanned
documents can quickly be printed,
filed, previewed, shared, and stored,
saving time and improving workflows.
Even high volume scanning is effortless
thanks to thoughtful innovations that
automatically stamp originals as they’re
scanned and skip blank pages entirely.
Convenient filing
The MX-2610N and MX-3110N come
with a 160GB hard drive on which you
can store jobs (neatly indexed with
thumbnail views) for later reuse.
Save jobs in PDF format, allowing you
to browse them from your PC.
Choose from Quick Filing for
temporary storage, Advanced Filing for
long-term archiving, or a Main Folder
for convenient workgroup sharing.
And the optional Mirroring Kit*
provides a backup for the data stored
on the hard drive.
* Requires optional MX-EB12.

Powerful multi-level security
Sharp MFPs incorporate some of the industry’s toughest, multi-level security measures as standard. We start with
password-controlled access for routine user authentication, and you can add a third party card reader for tighter
control. But then we go further with secure network interfaces to defeat external threats, SSL and IPsec to encrypt
and protect network traffic, and full IEEE 802.1X compliance for port-based network access control.
And because we know that sensitive
documents are sometimes accessed
unintentionally we guard against
accidents, too.
Multi-level security to protect
your information, documents
and network
A Hidden Pattern Print feature
can reveal a watermark (e.g.
- if original is mistakenly copied,
alerting the user so that the copy
should not be distributed, and
Confidential PIN Printing requires
the user to be present at the MFP
before the print run can start. Plus,
you protect against the unauthorised
viewing of confidential documents by
using password-protected PDFs.
* Requires optional MX-FR30U
Sharp I MX-2610N / MX-3110N I Full Colour MFP
When it’s time to replace your MFP
Sharp’s security features continue to
protect your interests by making it
easy to completely and permanently
remove all data from the device.
For even greater security, choose the
optional Data Security Kit*, which
has a Document Control facility
to prevent unauthorised copying,
scanning, faxing and filing, plus the
ability to encrypt and securely erase
data from the hard disk and internal
memory, at specified intervals or
on demand.

Maximum uptime for total productivity
The advanced finger-swipe interface will help even inexperienced users benefit from the MX-2610N and MX-3110N’s full
range of capabilities. Not only is the User Guide accessible in digital form direct from the control screen, but we’ve also
maximised uptime with important support tools such as:
Web Page Management
Every important setting can be
managed through a standard web
browser, including user access, security
and other controls and configurations.
Sharp Remote Device Manager
Installed on your file server, Sharp
Remote Device Manager gives you
centralised, real-time control of
your networked printers and MFPs
without leaving your desk. Errorreporting, technical support, driver
installation, firmware upgrades, printer
configuration: everything is easier and
more accessible.
Remote Diagnosis
Solve issues before they become
problems by monitoring your MFPs
