MAIN FEATURES

Laser printer able to accept a range of peripherals allowing it to be configured to specific needs

This product is a laser printer that can be used as a local printer which can be configured by the addition of peripheral devices to extend its capabilities to include copier, network printer, network scanner or facsimile features.

A range of optional units to enhance productivity

Optional additions such as duplex units for producing two-sided output, additional paper feed units to increase the variety of available paper sizes and paper capacity, paper output units to sort and otherwise organize the output and a scanner module for automatically scanning documents.

1

600 dpi high resolution printing

High-definition and high quality printing with 600 dpi resolution can be performed. Also high image quality equivalent to 1200 dpi can be output by using a smoothing function.

High speed monochrome printing

Depending upon the model chosen, high speed printing at 35 letter (A4) size pages/minute or 45 letter (A4) size pages/minute is available.

PostScript compatible

Installation of a PS3 expansion kit gives PostScript compatibility (PostScript level 3).

Energy saving features

This product has the following two power reducing modes that conform to the

Energy Star guidelines which help to conserve natural resources and reduce environmental pollution.

Preheat mode

The preheat mode is the first level of power reduction. The power is reduced to the fuser unit a preset time after the machine has completed a job and no further machine operations have been made. The machine can recover to the ready condition within a short period of time. The preset time to enter the mode can be set by a key operator program.

As an E NERGY S TAR ®

Par tner, SHARP has determined that this product meets the

E NERGY S TAR ® guidelines for energy efficiency.

Auto power shut-off mode

The auto power shut-off mode is the second level of power reduction. In this mode power is shut off to the fusing unit and the touch panel. In this state more energy is saved than in the preheat mode but the time to recover to the ready condition will be longer. The preset time to enter this mode can be set by a key operator program.

When this product is used as a printer, and either of the above modes is active, the mode will be deactivated automatically by an incoming job and the machine will automatically warm up and start to print when it has reached the ready temperature.

When this product is configured for multi-function operation, and either of the above modes is active, the mode will be deactivated as above by either an incoming print job or received facsimile data. Either mode will also be deactivated by any key operation on the operation panel or by the action of an original being placed for copying or facsimile transmission.

In this mode either one side of an original can be scanned or both sides of an original can be scanned at the same time. The other mode of scanning uses a moving mirror for scanning originals placed on the glass platen.

Upper exit tray extension (AR-TE4)

Mount this unit to the upper paper exit tray. This extension is needed to support large size paper.

Finisher (AR-FN6)

Output sheets can either be sorted in page order or grouped by page. Sorted sets or groups are offset stacked for easy separation when removed. Sorted sets can be delivered either stapled or unstapled.

Mail-bin stacker (AR-MS1)

This unit is an output sorter that has seven receiving bins.

The bin to receive printed output can be selected in the printer driver. Each bin can be assigned to receive printed output by an individual person or by groups of people so that their prints are separated from other users making them easy to retrieve.

When this unit is installed, any copies or facsimile prints will be sent to the top tray and not into the mail bins.

MAIL-BIN STACKER

Specifying mail bins to receive printed output

Printed output can be specified in the printer driver to be delivered to an assigned mail bin or to the top tray. Assigning mail bins to individual users or groups of users reduces the mixing of print jobs simplifying the retrieval of printed output. When separation of output is not required, the top tray can be selected for delivery.

NOTICE PAGE PRINTING

A notice page will be printed when the current print job cannot be done due to a system limitation and an explanation of the limitation is too lengthy to be shown in the message display. A notice page will describe the limitation and other possibilities to run the job.

A notice page will be printed in the following cases.

● When sufficient memory is not available to store the print data. This may happen even if the amount of data for the job is not large when the memory becomes full with data of other jobs.

● When a print job is sent to the printer and the number of print hold jobs has reached the maximum of 100 jobs.

● When different paper sizes have been selected for printing within a print job and one or more of the sizes cannot be delivered to the selected exit tray or to the stapler compiler. In these cases printed paper will be delivered partly to the specified destination (tray or compiler) and partly to another exit tray.

● When a function has been selected for printing but has been disabled by a key operator program. (Duplex module is disabled, stapler is disabled, punch is disabled, specified exit tray is disabled, etc.)

● An invalid account number is entered when the auditing mode has been set.

Disabling of notice page printing

Notice page printing can be disabled using a key operator program. See “Disable notice page printing” on page 11 of the Key Operator’s Guide.
