MP 2501SP
Innovation, value and versatility in one integrated design
Choose the RICOH MP 2501SP for fast, dependable and affordable multifunction performance to
streamline document-related workflow and lower your total cost of ownership. This space-saving and
innovative MFP combines quality printing and copying on media up to 11" x 17", easy-to-use scanning
capabilities, optional faxing and advanced security features. For small offices, use it as your primary system,
or deploy it as an integral part of a Ricoh Managed Document Services (MDS) strategy and improve
productivity for small workgroups throughout your organization.
Improve speed and efficiency
Enhance productivity and meet every demand with the Ricoh MP 2501SP.
With warm-up time of only 20 seconds or less and first-print times as fast
as 6 seconds, it’s ready to move as fast you are. The compact and reliable
system produces high-quality output at up to 25 pages per minute. Its
full-front-access design allows users to connect to key functions effortlessly
for easy operation and maintenance. Plus, with its powerful processing engine,
the system can manage multiple copying, printing and scanning projects
for continuous workflow.
User-friendly operations
The Ricoh MP 2501SP offers portable and Cloud-based applications to meet
the evolving demands of today’s mobile workforce and to share information
throughout your organization. With a built-in USB/SD card slot on the control
panel, workers can print PDF, TIFF and JPEG files right at the device —
without additional drivers or software.* Printing of e-mails, photos, web pages
and documents can also be initiated from smartphones and tablets without
software to download, drivers to install or cables to connect.
*Requires HDD option.
Customize your workflows
The Ricoh MP 2501SP can be configured to accommodate your unique
preferences to streamline copying, printing and scanning and minimize
time spent navigating between jobs. Take advantage of the easy-to-view,
tiltable 4.3-inch color control panel with a customizable home screen and
icons for personalized, one-step shortcuts to common tasks. Choose from
three available function keys to assign other pre-set tasks for even more
convenience. Plus, the control panel includes a home screen button so users
can return to the main menu instantly.
Reliable performance, every time, everywhere
Advanced security controls
Protect critical information at every stage of the document lifecycle
via state-of-the-art security features. With the optional hard disk
drive (HDD) installed, the Ricoh MP 2501SP offers user passwordprotected and user-specific authentication to ensure only authorized
users have access to key documents and system privileges. Print
jobs can be stored at the device until users swipe an ID card or enter
ID information at the control panel to release them. Unauthorized
Copy Control prevents fraudulent duplication of sensitive documents.
The DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) ensures latent images
stored on the internal HDD are protected. For even greater security,
it includes AES 256-bit/SHA-2 enhanced encryption for advanced
protection of your most critical data.
Combine capabilities in one compact system
Minimize your investment — not your performance — with the Ricoh
MP 2501SP. With standard printing and copying, the versatile system
offers 600 dpi image quality output along with advanced scanning
features and optional fax capabilities in a compact design, making
it ideal for everyday workflow in small offices and workgroups. Use
enhanced batch scanning to scan one-sided and two-sided originals
in a single job without generating unnecessary blank pages. With the
fax option, users can route documents directly to e-mail accounts
or shared folders and send faxes using the Internet instead of phone
lines to reduce costs and enhance productivity. In addition, with the
Remote Fax feature, an organization can designate one MP 2501SP
with fax capability as the hub to send and receive documents from
other networked Ricoh services-led MFPs without fax capabilities.
Distribution made easy
Minimize hardcopy storage while improving communications. The
Ricoh MP 2501SP allows you to scan black-and-white and color
documents and save them instantly to shared folders, computers,
media cards and more at no additional cost. Unlike black-and-white only
scanning of color documents, color scanning preserves the original
look of the document, enabling the capture of highlights, annotations
and other image details. Users can also look at thumbnail previews of
the scanned documents to ensure quality and accuracy before they are
distributed. With optional Ricoh GlobalScan NX software, users can
create unique scanning workflows that automate distribution and minimize
manual errors to streamline the way your office shares information.
Discover how convenient value can be
Handle any task — big or small
The Ricoh MP 2501SP is designed to deliver a wide range of
documents on media up to 11" x 17". It comes standard with a
100-sheet capacity automatic reversing document feeder (ARDF)
to handle multi-page originals for single- or two-sided copying and
scanning. Optional paper banks expand the standard 600-sheet paper
capacity to 1,600 sheets for longer print runs. The system includes
a Document Server* to store up to 3,000 electronic documents at
the device for convenient access and retrieval. Plus, an Auto Job
Promotion* feature can skip specific error jobs and proceed to
subsequent print jobs for uninterrupted throughput.
*Requires HDD option.
Impact your office — and the environment
Maximize energy efficiency while minimizing operating costs. The
Ricoh MP 2501SP can save more electricity by shortening the time it
takes to recover from its “1W” Sleep Mode to only 10 seconds. The
system offers automatic duplexing for copying, faxing and printing to
reduce paper consumption. An Eco-friendly Indicator is prominently
displayed on the control panel to encourage users to be more
environmentally responsible. It displays the print history for each user
as well as the subsequent impact on the environment. With the Quota
Setting* feature, administrators can take control of excessive print
costs and set print quotas for individual users as well.
*Requires HDD option.
Integrate seamlessly
Connectivity is easy in any shared-use office environment with a
standard Gigabit Ethernet or USB 2.0 interface. Take advantage of
Ricoh’s Embedded Software Architecture and incorporate customized
applications and software solutions to boost productivity and reduce
operating costs. Incorporate innovative print driver deployment,
automated meter collection, Cloud-based fleet reports and more. In
addition, Web Image Monitor allows users or administrators to check
status or configure settings of the device through any web browser.
