SP 4520DN
Fast, high-quality printing that fits your style and budget
You’re ready to work at a moment’s notice. You work quickly. And, your efforts make the workday easier for
your coworkers. Shouldn’t you expect the same from your printer? Choose the SAVIN SP 4520DN — the latest
in our long line of innovative devices proven to simplify the way you work by moving information quickly and
economically. Integrate it into your small workgroup or office and print high-quality black-and-white documents
at high speeds without compromising security. Or, add the compact, feature-rich printer as part of a Managed
Document Services (MDS) strategy and see just how much time and money it can save for your organization.
Complete more jobs quickly
You worked hard on your latest big idea. There’s no reason you should
have to wait to see it. Recovery from sleep mode is only 10 seconds, and
first-print times are less than seven seconds, so you can print up to 42
pages per minute at 1,200 dpi resolution in moments. Add additional paper
feed units without expanding your footprint and increase paper capacity
to 1,600 sheets for longer, uninterrupted runs. Take advantage of a robust
controller and powerful processor to manage more jobs from multiple users
simultaneously. In the back office, the Savin SP 4520DN ably handles host
printing applications like UNIX, SAP R/3 and IPDS.
Add a personal touch to your workflow
Printing shouldn’t be complicated. Customize your home screen and add
shortcuts to frequently used tasks with the intuitive, tiltable 4.3" color touch
panel on the Savin SP 4520DN. You can also use it to check system status at
a glance or to navigate between key functions and projects. Add the optional
Web browser to the printer to access Web pages directly from the operation
panel. Then, print them directly from the device for faster turnarounds.
Print from your mobile device
Smartphones and tablets have quickly become a big part of our everyday
lives — at home and at work. More workers are performing office tasks
directly from their phones and tablets for incredible convenience in the
workplace. Wouldn’t it be nice to print from them, too? Use the Savin Smart
Device Print&Scan app and print directly from your Apple iPhone , iPad or
Android device when connected to an office network — without installing
print drivers. You can also transport files on a USB/SD card and print it from
the Savin SP 4520DN.
Discover the value of reliable, affordable
black-and-white printing
Minimize risks
Control what gets printed — and who prints it. Incorporate user
authentication directly at the Savin SP 4520DN, so sent documents
are released from the optional Hard Disk Drive only after the user
enters a password at the touchpanel. Or, add the optional card reader
and use ID cards to release print jobs. Thwart other nefarious threats
with IP Address filtering, 128-bit encryption, HDD Data Encryption and
DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) to encrypt or overwrite data on
the Hard Disk Drive. Assign up to 1,000 user codes to track users and
types of print jobs. You can even set quotas for specific users, groups
or types of jobs to encourage more economical printing.
Monitor operations
Efficiency means something different for different work groups.
Determine what it means to yours. See how the Savin SP 4520DN
measures up to other printers in your fleet while also checking paper,
toner levels and more with Savin Device Manager NX. Use Savin Web
Image Monitor to manage print queues and change settings. Or, monitor
detailed device usage data with easy-to-use Savin @Remote and find
potential problems before they compromise print performance.
Embrace environmental responsibility
You may feel like you have enough responsibilities at work. If so,
why not let us help you conserve energy resources and protect the
environment? The Savin SP 4520DN comes standard with double-sided
printing to reduce paper use. Activate the ECO-Night Sensor and the
printer shuts down for the night when you do. Or, you can program
the printer to shut down at designated times to reduce energy
consumption when the office is slower or closed. Plus, the device
meets EPEAT Silver* criteria — a global environmental rating system
for electronic products — and is certified with the latest ENERGY STAR
specifications. In addition, with Savin’s toner cartridge/container
recycling program, you can return all empty Savin branded toner
containers and cartridges to our recycling vendor.
Simplify maintenance
You’re seeking a reliable printer that can produce up to 10,000
images per month. With high-yield consumables and a host of
remote administration controls, you can rest assured that your
printer will always work when you need it most. Just as importantly,
cost-per-page has been minimized too, so you can produce
high-quality black-and-white documents with minimal interruption
to maximize your investment.
*EPEAT Silver rating is applicable only in the USA.
