Super-Efficient Colour and B/W Output
Automated Finishing
The tandem printing engine with four in-line drums helps the
MX-2314N deliver a fast output of 23 cpm/ppm* in full colour
and in B/W. And the first copy comes out in just 10.0 seconds in
full colour and 7.4 seconds in B/W. What’s more, its short, straight
paper path minimises misfeeds to save you paper and
toner costs.
The MX-2314N automates time-consuming finishing tasks and
makes it easy to create professional-looking booklets. For a
consistent, polished look, the chapter divide function prints
documents so that all chapters begin on odd-numbered pages or
all begin on even-numbered pages. A space-efficient Finisher is
available for jobs that require sorting and stapling. And, an
optional Punch Module allows you to punch holes in documents
for easy filing.
* A4 (8 1/2" x 11"), long-edge feeding
Built-In Duplex Module
The MX-2314N can make two-sided copies and printouts using
its built-in stackless duplex module, effectively reducing paper
costs as well as saving filing space. Duplex copying is even more
effective when the duplex module is used together with the
standard-equipped 100-sheet
RSPF (reversing single pass
feeder), which efficiently feeds
in one- or two-sided originals
and can also simultaneously
scan paper of different sizes.
Network Tandem Function*
When two MX-2314Ns are connected to the same office network,
you can use both simultaneously to double copying/printing
output to up to 46 cpm/ppm. Large-volume jobs can be
completed with ease, enabling you to meet tight deadlines.
* Requires optional MX-EB16.
Job Build for Large-Volume Scanning
The MX-2314N easily handles large-volume copy jobs exceeding
the RSPF’s 100-sheet*1 capacity. For example, a 270-sheet original
can be scanned as batches of 100 + 100 + 70 sheets and
automatically stored on the MFP’s hard disk*2. Users can then print
the entire document in a single run.
*1: A4 (8 1/2" x 11"), 80 g/m2
*2: Requires optional MX-EB16. The number of pages that can be stored for
the Job Build function depends on the machine’s HDD capacity and other
Proof Copying or Printing*
To prevent the waste of large-volume misprints, the MX-2314N
lets users output only the first set to check the content, adjust
settings if necessary, and then initiate output of the rest of the job
from the LCD control panel.
Job Finishing Examples
Hole punching
Extra Paper Capacity
For high-volume work, the MX-2314N can accommodate an
optional stand with 500 + 2,000-sheet paper drawers for a total
capacity of 3,100 sheets.
When a tray runs out of
paper, the Auto Tray
Switching function
automatically switches to
another paper tray filled with
the same size paper, allowing
you to do extra-large volume
jobs without worry.
Long-Paper (Banner) Printing*
The optional Long Paper Feeding
Tray accommodates extra-long
paper up to 1,200 mm—expanding
the range of print products to
include panoramic pictures, large
display-window ads, banner signs,
and more.
* Contact a Sharp customer representative
for details on using this function.
* Requires optional MX-EB16.
Supports Most Office Environments
• The MX-2314N works with the latest and most commonly used versions
of Windows®, Windows Server®, and Mac operating systems and
network protocols—including IPv6—even in mixed OS environments.
You get fast, powerful network printing via the 1000Base-T Gigabit
Ethernet standard.
• The MX-2314N supports the PCL 6* printer language. For compatibility
with PostScript 3, the MX-PK11 PS3 Expansion Kit is available.

Improved Imaging System
Easy, High-Quality Copying
Sharp thoroughly revamped its imaging process for the
MX-2314N; now a high-performance processor, a new developer,
and the second-generation Mycrostoner-HG (High Grade)
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. And 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.
Built to deliver automated, high-quality copying, the MX-2314N
can reproduce maps with crisp, clear text and can remove
unnecessary background colour from newspaper and magazine
copies. Here’s how it works: Auto Colour Mode analyses the
contents of each page to distinguish between different
components, such as photos and text, and then selects the
appropriate copy mode for that page. Auto Colour Selection
automatically determines whether a page is colour or B/W and then
copies that page accordingly. And Auto Exposure automatically
removes unnecessary background colour for clearer output.

A3 Colour Network Scanning
High-Speed Faxing
The MX-2314N works as a full-colour network scanner and
supports TIFF, PDF, encrypted PDF, XPS, JPEG, and PDF/A file formats.
Converting any type of paper-based document, up to A3 (11" x 17")
in size, into an editable digital file is as easy as making a copy.
Enhanced scan performance improves the legibility of extremely fine
text and allows vivid colour reproduction in scanned documents. And
Auto Colour Selection chooses the right mode for scanning
originals containing both colour and B/W pages (see page 4).
The optional MX-FX11 Fax Expansion Kit turns the MX-2314N into
a 33.6 Kbps Super G3 fax machine. Quick On-Line Transmission
initiates dialling and transmitting as soon as a page is scanned into
memory. JBIG compression technology lets the MX-2314N send an
A4 (8 1/2" x 11") size page in under three seconds*. And using
the 100-sheet RSPF gives faxing efficiency a further boost.
Incoming faxes are also handled with automated ease. The

Document Control Function
Encrypted PDF with Password Protection
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 prevent unauthorised viewing of confidential data, the
MX-2314N enables scanned PDF data to be password protected
and encrypted for transmission over the network. After
transmission, viewers can gain access to the encrypted PDF only
after re-entering the password.
Note: Requires optional MX-EB16 and MX-FR40U. May not work for certain
types of documents or paper.
Note: Direct printing of encrypted PDF files requires optional MX-EB16.

User Authentication
The MX-2314N 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-2314N can, for example, be set to
allow B/W copying by all users while restricting colour copying to
designated users. And the MX-2314N works with an external
Active Directory server to extend user authentication to multiple
MFPs and a greater number of users.
Secure Sockets Layer
SSL (secure sockets layer) enables the encryption of data
communications to prevent 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).
IPv6 and IPsec Support
The MX-2314N supports the IPv6 Internet protocol. An obligatory
part of IPv6 is IPsec (IP Security), a set of protocols for securing
Internet protocol (IP) communications. IPsec encrypts and
authenticates traffic between specified parties, giving
IPsec-compatible products an extremely high level of network security.
Scan to Me Function
Data Initialisation
Scan to Me lets a logged-in authorised user send scanned data to
his/her own e-mail address simply by pressing the start button. This
eliminates the need to manually enter or select the address, thereby
preventing documents from being sent to the wrong address.
The MX-2314N’s initialisation function allows confidential
information to be erased at the administrator’s discretion via the
MFP’s system setting. Initialising an MFP when it’s time to replace it
prevents important resources, such as customer information and
intellectual property, from leaking out and provides considerable
peace of mind.
Document Management on the Hard Disk
You can save processed job data in designated folders on the MX-2314N’s hard disk, making it easy to instantly recall saved
documents or jobs for printing and sending at a later time. This contributes greatly to efficient sharing and distribution of information
in your business operations.
Note: Requires optional MX-EB16.

access secure folders, protecting your sensitive data. Storage options include Main Folder
for workgroup sharing and Custom Folder for enhanced-security archiving.
*3: Storage capacity will vary depending on the type of document and the scan settings.
*4: For fax and Internet fax jobs, only transmitted data (not received faxes) can be saved in the Document Filing function.
Easy Access to Stored Files
Easy Sharing of Application Files
Documents stored on the hard disk can be quickly and easily
searched and accessed from the control panel’s LCD via
thumbnail displays and file previews or through a Web browser.
To facilitate file sharing across the office network, the MX-2314N
provides 120GB of hard disk storage space for folders. Each

A full-size retractable QWERTY
keyboard slides out from beneath
the control panel to make text input
fast and easy: convenient for typing
things like e-mail addresses and
messages, as well as passwords for
user authentication.
Job Status Screen
Whether printing or copying, the control panel displays a list of all
jobs, showing you at a glance the jobs in progress and the position
of your job in the queue. And, with a few quick touches of the
LCD screen, the Priority Printing function lets you easily change
the job queue order or delete jobs that are no longer needed.
Easy-Grip Handles
Easy-grip handles on the MX-2314N
reflect a universal design that allows
the paper drawers to be grasped
from the top as well as the bottom
for easy opening and closing.

Outstanding Energy Efficiency
To reduce power consumption, Sharp has applied its advanced
technologies across all areas of this MFP, including the hardware,
software, electrical system, and supplies. As a result, the
MX-2314N boasts one of the lowest power consumption rates in
its class.
• Based on prior usage patterns, the MX-2314N automatically
determines the optimal length of time to let elapse before going
into auto power shut-off mode, helping reduce overall power
consumption. Shortly before auto power shut-off mode begins, a
message appears* on the LCD indicating that the MFP will soon
shut down and giving users the option to continue operation.
* Contact a Sharp customer representative to activate this pop-up
message function.
• Sharp’s belt fusing system
shortens the MX-2314N’s
warm-up time to 19 seconds,
contributing to reduced overall
energy consumption.
• Eco Scan function saves energy by keeping the fusing system
shut down during jobs that don’t require the use of the fusing
system, such as Image Sending and Document Filing.

• Power ON/OFF Schedule function automatically turns the
MX-2314N on or off according to time schedules set by the

• Second-generation Mycrostoner-HG has a lower melting point
than conventional toner, allowing fusing to be carried out with
less energy. It also offers a significantly lower consumption rate
than conventional toner.
• For further energy savings, energy-efficient LED lamps are
employed in the scan unit in
place of conventional xenon
lamps. A new ASIC
(application-specific integrated
circuit) also helps the MX-2314N
deliver excellent performance
and energy efficiency.
