The MFC-9440CN offers breathtaking color and
razor-sharp monochrome output. It also features

scanning, and an up to 35-page auto-document
feeder for multi-page documents. And of course, it provides
the exceptional faxing features you’d expect from Brother, a
world leader in fax solutions.
Its built-in USB Direct interface enables you to print PDF and JPEG
files from – or scan files to – a USB flash memory drive*, without
being connected to a computer. The USB interface also facilitates
printing directly from PictBridge-enabled cameras.
The MFC-9440CN gives you the flexibility to
connect either locally, or to your network, via its
built-in Ethernet network and Hi-Speed USB 2.0
Color Laser All-In-One
with Wireless and Duplex
The MFC-9840CDW also includes built-in automatic
duplex capability for two-sided printing, copying,
scanning†, and faxing. This can significantly cut your
paper costs when printing and copying two-sided
documents, plus provide a more professional look.
The MFC-9840CDW includes all the features of the MFC-9440CN,
plus several major enhancements. Along with a 5-line LCD display,
the MFC-9840CDW also provides a larger, legal-size (8.5" x 14")
flatbed document glass for copying and scanning. It also offers a
larger capacity auto document feeder – up to 50 pages.
Finally, the MFC-9840CDW includes a built-in
wireless 802.11b/g interface, in addition to
its built-in Ethernet network and Hi-Speed
USB 2.0 interfaces**.
Advanced features of the MFC-9840cdw
Automatic duplex features
The MFC-9840CDW includes automatic
duplex (two-sided) printing, copying,
scanning and faxing. This feature can
help reduce paper costs, while giving
you the ability to create professional twosided documents for reports, proposals
and other materials, quickly and easily.
Walk-up access to LDAP network
address books
Save time and reduce errors with instant direct access through your
network connected MFC-9840CDW to a virtually infinite number of
E-mail and fax addresses stored in your LDAP network address
books. Simply use the 5-line LCD display on the MFC-9840CDW
control panel to locate, view,
and select the contacts stored
in your LDAP network address
books. Sending documents
electronically to others on your
network could not be easier.
Enhanced scan-to-FTP-server features
Scan to other fax-server applications
Scan documents and images and
post them to FTP sites directly
through your network-connected
all-in-one**. It’s ideal if you often
post files to FTP sites for easy
retrieval and download by permitted
users inside your firm, perhaps in
remote locations, or by corporate partners, such as clients,
vendors, agents and others. Multiple FTP server profiles can
store specific sites and folder locations, access codes, and
scanning preferences for your frequently used FTP locations,
cutting time spent and potential errors.
If you employ a leading network-based fax-server application in
your enterprise, the MFC-9840CDW can be set up as a document
scanning device to work with it. Transmission of your faxes will
then take place through your preferred network-based fax-server
application, rather than through its built-in fax modem.
Secure function lock
Wireless and Ethernet interfaces
on the MFC-9840cdw
Walk-up copying, scanning, and faxing are all great conveniences.
However, you may want to limit access to select features, especially
if you are handling confidential records and data, or to restrict access
to printing to keep your operating costs down. So the MFC-9840CDW
provides the ability for your administrator to set various levels of
password-protected access to certain features, for each of up to
25 different users per machine.
For the ultimate in connectivity, the MFC-9840CDW includes built-in
wireless 802.11b/g and Ethernet interfaces**. This gives you the
widest range of connection options, and great flexibility for all your
wireless as well as wired users.
Connection possibilities with the MFC-9840CDW:
Via Ethernet interface to
router or wireless router**
Via access point/router
in infrastructure mode
Via 802.11b/g from wirelessenabled PC or notebook
(ad-hoc mode)

Convenience, by design.
Convenient flatbed design –
plus an auto-document feeder
For making copies or scans of odd-sized documents, and bound
items such as magazines and reports, a flatbed document glass is
ideal. The MFC-9440CN and the MFC-9840CDW provide this copying
and scanning convenience. The top cover on both models lifts up to
accommodate bulkier materials such as books and magazines.
Both all-in-ones feature an auto-document feeder for legal or letter
documents. This is particularly helpful when you have to send
multiple-page faxes, make multi-page copies, or have a large number
of documents to scan.
Paper-handling versatility and convenience
The MFC-9440CN and the MFC-9480CDW arrive with a 250-sheet paper tray
(easily adjustable for letter or legal-size paper), and a 50-sheet, fold-down
multi-purpose tray that is ideal for feeding individual sheets of letterhead
or for printing envelopes.
If you need additional paper capacity, both models accept an optional second
500-sheet paper tray (LT-100CL)‡.
Front-loading design and low operating costs
The MFC-9000 Series feature a front-loading design that makes toner cartridge replacement simple
and easy. The four color coded toner cartridges easily slide in and out of the machine, allowing
users to quickly replace the used toner cartridges with minimal effort.
These machines also arrive with a set of standard yield toner cartridges that deliver an economical
cost per page. For users with higher volume printing requirements who are looking to achieve even
lower running costs, high-yield replacement toner cartridges are also available.
True all-in-one versatility
With either the MFC-9440CN or the MFC-9840CDW, you’ll be ready to handle virtually all the office printing, copying, scanning and faxing
needs you have now, and gain powerful tools to help you take your business to the next level.
