Ecology of Coccinellidae
Coccinellids are small insects,
ranging from 1 mm to 10 mm
(0.04 to 0.4 inches), and are
commonly yellow, orange, or
scarlet with small black spots on
their wing covers, with black
legs, head and antennae. A very
large number of coccinellid
species are mostly, or entirely,
black, grey, or brown and may be
difficult for non-entomologists
to recognize as coccinellids.
Conversely, there are many small
beetles that are easily mistaken
for coccinellids, such as the
tortoise beetles.

Improved Imaging System
Easy, High-Quality Copying
Sharp thoroughly revamped its imaging process for the
MX-3610N/3110N/2610N; 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.
Auto Colour Selection automatically determines whether a page
is colour or B/W and selects the appropriate copy mode for that
page. Auto Colour Mode analyses the contents of each page,
distinguishing between different components, such as photos and
text. These two functions allow the MX-3610N/3110N/2610N to
print out maps with crisp, clear text and to automatically remove
unnecessary background colour from newspaper and magazine
copies for clearer output.

Document Control Function
SSL and IPsec Data Encryption
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 ensure an extremely high level of network security, the
MX-3610N/3110N/2610N employs SSL (secure sockets layer) and
IPsec (IP security) data encryption technologies. SSL encryption
prevents 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). IPsec, an obligatory part of the
IPv6 Internet protocol, encrypts and authenticates traffic between
specified parties.
Note: Requires Data Security Kit. May not work for certain types of
documents or paper.

User Authentication
The MX-3610N/3110N/2610N 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. And the MX-3610N/3110N/2610N
works with an external Active Directory server to extend user
authentication to multiple MFPs and a greater number of users.
The MX-3610N/3110N/2610N’s initialisation function allows
confidential information to be erased at the administrator’s
discretion via the MFP’s system settings. Initialising an MFP when
it’s taken out of service prevents data leakage and provides
considerable peace of mind.
Hidden Pattern Copy/Print
With this function, a watermark, such as “Confidential” or “Not
for Copy,” can be embedded onto a document. If that document
is copied, the watermark will appear, alerting the user not to
distribute it.
Encrypted PDF with Password Protection

• Easy-grip handles allow the paper drawers to be grasped from
the top as well as the bottom for easy opening and closing.
Retractable Keyboard (option)
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.
Direct Internet Access
Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture)
The optional Web Browsing Expansion Kit gives you direct
access to the Internet for easy browsing of Web sites on the colour
touchscreen. With such quick access to information, brochures
and user manuals in PDF* format as well as maps and coupons
can be printed out on the spot.
Innovative Sharp OSA* technology allows you to interact with
critical business and network applications right from the LCD
control panel, offering a new realm of control and convenience.
And since Sharp OSA utilises industry-standard network protocols,
the MX-3610N/3110N/2610N can easily integrate with document
management systems, enterprise resource planning software,
workflow applications, and more. The latest version of Sharp OSA
can reach beyond the firewall, enabling extensive system
construction and services over the Internet. Sharp OSA brings
benefits such as reducing the costs associated with system
implementation and management, as well as enabling data
sharing across company branch offices or subsidiaries—effectively
enhancing total business efficiency.
* PDF printing requires optional MX-PK11.
Sharp OSA Network Scanner Tool
This client-based scan-to-desktop option is the ideal document
management system for small workgroups or offices that don’t have
servers. Sharp OSA Network Scanner Tool provides centralised
scan/print user profiles to give everyone in the office easy one-touch
scanning to their PC from any networked MFP—without
complicated settings. Scanned documents can be quickly and easily
printed, filed, previewed, shared, and stored to save time and
improve document workflow. And Sharp OSA Network Scanner Tool
automatically names PDF files
based on scanned-document
titles and can convert scanned
documents into text with the
OCR engine to create
searchable PDF files.
* Requires optional MX-AMX2 and/or MX-AMX3.
