File this information with the product documentation for future reference. This information is being
supplied based on the requirements of the Blue Angel award as indicated on the Blue Angel award Web
site (RAL-UZ 171).
Congratulations on the purchase of a Dell product with the Blue Angel Award. This product has been
tested against strict emissions and noise standards. The construction of the product allows easy
disassembly and recycling when its useful life is complete. Upon return of this product to the recycling
center, the components are recycled in an environmentally responsible manner, and reusable material
is returned to the production cycle. To recycle your device, go to Under
“Home & Home Office,” choose your region and then your country. Click Zu Dell-Recycling, and follow the instructions on the site. To recycle
cartridges or photoconductors, go to Under “Home & Home Office,” choose your region and then your country.
Click Druckerverbrauchsmaterialien, and then follow the instructions on the site.
Store print cartridges out of the reach of children. Remember to keep all supply items away from children. The print cartridges, shipped with
the product, have been sealed as a precaution to prevent toner dust from escaping. Take care not to inhale the toner dust and avoid toner
contact with the skin. If your skin does come in contact with toner, wash with soap and cold water.Never open the print cartridges by force.
Personnel installing, cleaning, disposing, or performing maintenance of print cartridges should refer to the printer or print cartridge
documentation before performing such tasks. Normal usage requires removal of a print cartridge on the following occasions: at initial product
installation to remove the print cartridge's protective packaging, at a Toner Low message to gently shake the cartridge if specified in the User’s
Guide, at the end of the cartridge life to replace it and if necessary, during life to clear a paper jam.
See the printer packaging for information on the yield of the print cartridge shipped with this product.
The supplies items are recycled in an environmentally responsible manner. The photoconductive drums that cannot be renewed are forwarded
to an aluminum recycler. The substance emission requirements of Blue Angel were tested and met by using the print supplies items supplied
and recommended by the manufacturer. Because new electronic products generally emit volatile chemicals into the air, ensure there is a
sufficient air exchange in rooms where the new product is set up during the first days of use of the product.
Spare parts and print cartridges are available for at least 5 years after production of this product.
This product contains a battery that is not user replaceable.
The product is suitable for the use of recycled paper according to DIN 19309, respective to the European standard EN17181:2002. As with any
paper, we recommend printing several samples on the type of paper being considered before buying large quantities.

Energy data for the Dell B5465dnf
According to RAL-UZ 171 (Edition July 2012)
General Information on energy, power, and the units of Watts and kilowatt hours
Energy is the capacity to do physical work. Energy is needed, for example, to heat water, to power a lamp, or to print a sheet of paper. Energy
is needed for this product to operate.
Energy has several common units, including Joules and BTU/Hour, but the most common unit is the kilowatt-hour (kwh).
Power is the energy transferred per unit of time. The common unit of power is a Watt.
Conversion between different units
The following are standard conversions between the units of energy and power:
1000 Watts = 1 kilowatt
1 kilowatt-hour = 1 kilowatt x 1 hour = 1000 Watts x 1 hour
Energy consumption of a device = the power consumption of the device x the time over which the device consumes this power.
Specific power consumption information on the Dell B5465dnf
The amount of electricity a device consumes depends as much on its properties as much as it does the way you use it. The device is designed
in a way to allow the user to reduce energy consumption. The device immediately switches to a low power Ready mode after every print job.
In this low power Ready mode, the device can immediately respond to print jobs. If no print jobs occur after 5 minutes or an additional 25
minutes, the device switches to an Energy mode (2-tier). In the Energy Saving modes, the device can respond with negligible delay to print jobs.
This device meets the stringent requirements of the Blue Angel Eco Label in default timeout and recovery time. Please see for more information.
The product is designed with a power switch located on the right side of the printer. The power switch is accessible to the user even when
paper handling options, paper trays, a duplex unit, or a finisher are used.
The following table shows the individual values of power consumption as well as default timeouts and recovery times. All values are preset
upon delivery. With these values, the device meets the Blue Angel Requirements.

Energy consumption of the Dell B5465dnf
ENERGY STAR version 1.1 uses an energy consumption calculation for the downtime of the product, called the Typical Electricity Consumption
(TEC). This TEC calculation estimates the weekly energy consumption of a product for a given usage pattern. The following table details the
results of the TEC calculation for the Dell B5465dnf. The value was measured with the settings mentioned above (delivery status).:

You can partly change the activation times of the energy-saving modes. If you shorten an activation time, the printer will switch over to an
energy-saving mode more quickly, reducing electricity costs. If you extend an activation time, the printer will stay in a mode of increased power
consumption for a longer period and therefore use more electricity. We recommend not extending activation times.
