Super G3 Fax with A3 Paper Transmission &

Super G3 Fax with
A3 Paper Transmission & Reception
The Fax with Potential
Today’s competitive business environment demands uncompromising communication, efficiency and sophistication. To keep you ahead of the game, Ricoh has
produced a new high-speed facsimile - the AficioTMFAX5000L - that provides
everything you could expect, with added versatility and ease of use.
Features such as A3 transmission and the compact, wingless design give you
greater versatility, while an extra-rugged engine delivers the reliability you need
for the most demanding situations. An all-in-one toner cartridge offers both
superior image quality and convenience, while the Energy Saving Mode cuts your
costs to the bare minimum. Options such as the add-on G3 port and ISDN G4 kit
enable you to upgrade this fax as your business grows.
Other features include an ultra-fast 3-second transmission speed, 1.5-second
scanning speed, a standard memory of 2 MB - expandable with 2 MB/4 MB/40 MB
memory cards, and easy memory transmission cancellation.
Optimum Expandability
You can upgrade the performance of the
AficioTMFAX5000L in many ways. To save
time you can add Super G3 or G4 ports for
simultaneous communications. To speed
up transmission you can opt for JBIG
compression. Additionally, it is possible
to send and receive fax messages directly
from your computer by installing the
optional PC-Fax unit.
Dual port communication helps
to optimise office space.

• Two Super G3 ports
Adding the G3 Interface Unit Type 500 option
enables you to connect your AficioTMFAX5000L
to two separate lines for simultaneous
Super G3 communications. Multi-port
communication gives your AficioTMFAX5000L
the capabilities of two facsimile units - a
great way to maximise valuable office space.
• Accelerate from G3 to G4 (ISDN)
For the ultimate in speed and accuracy,
the AficioTMFAX5000L allows you to upgrade
to the G4 data transfer standard. In this
mode, you can transmit documents as fast
as 1.5 seconds per page. Moreover, since
data is sent digitally, image quality is superior
and there is less chance of error. This feature
is ideal for high-volume or long-distance
By mounting the optional PC-Fax Expander
Type 500, transmissions from PC to facsimile,
connected with serial cable, become possible.
You can directly transmit the data from your
PC. You can also receive the sent document
with your PC, see it on the display and save
it into the memory.

Memory capacity expansion
Aficio™FAX5000L can be used with
PC-Fax Expander to send and receive
fax documents via your PC.
Thanks to the optional JBIG compression,
the AficioTMFAX5000L can transmit in less
than 3 seconds by using Super G3. The result
is much clearer when transmitting pictures or
images; transmission is two to three times
faster than MMR method.
Memory Capacity
The AficioTMFAX5000L has a 2 MB (168 pages)
memory as standard, and optional 2 MB,
4 MB and 40 MB-memories are available.
This way you can expand memory volume
and functions to suit to your need.
Easy Operation
and Efficiency
The AficioTMFAX5000L is not only extremely
powerful and versatile, its operation is
also very straightforward thanks to a
convenient LCD, user-friendly features
and easy maintenance.
Large 4-line LCD
An Operation Panel with large 4-line LCD
and clear menu structure allows easy access
to all of the AficioTMFAX5000L’s features.
A back-light on the operation screen makes
the AficioTMFAX5000L easier to use by compensating for reflections from windows and
overhead lighting, and enabling use in poorly
lit environments.
Duplex Scanning
Now, when you want to send double-sided
documents, you will never need to copy
them before faxing. Simply scan the front
of the sheets (the odd-numbered pages) first,
followed by the back of the sheets (the evennumbered pages). The Aficio™FAX5000L
automatically rearranges your pagination in
the correct order before transmitting.
Convenient Status Indicator
The AficioTMFAX5000L is equipped with a Status
Indicator. A green or red signal flashes so that
you can check the condition of transmission
and operation from your desk.
Status indicator
Paper Supply Indicator
Red light flashes when the paper in the trays
(both standard and optional) is running out.
This makes it easy to know when to refill paper
without opening the tray.
Rotate Sort
With an optional paper cassette, A4 size paper
can be set both horizontally and vertically in
each tray. The Aficio™FAX5000L switches
between horizontal and vertical output for each
transmission when receiving an A4 document.
This feature is useful because you can easily
retrieve your documents when there are several
in the receiving tray.
Image Rotation
All-in-one Cartridge
All-in-one type toner cartridge
The all-in-one toner cartridge offers reliable
print quality, trouble-free maintenance and is
designed for easy, convenient replacement.
And because you never have to wait for a
service-technician to replace the toner and
drum, the AficioTMFAX5000L is always
Full-front Operation
Double-sided document scanning
With the AficioTMFAX5000L you can send and
receive documents and load recording paper
from the front of the machine. This not only
ensures greater operational convenience, but
also provides you with critical space-savings.

Report with image
Offering sophisticated power management,
the AficioTMFAX5000L’s “Energy Saver Function”
switches the unit to Energy Saving Mode at
the touch of the Energy Saver Key, or automatically if it is left idle for five minutes.
Although power consumption is reduced
to a mere two watts, it is able to handle all
incoming calls and print orders.
The materials used for each part of the fax
machine are clearly labelled to facilitate easier
separation for recycling purposes.
Image Rotation ensures that incoming faxes
are automatically rotated to fit the A4 size
paper that is in the tray - regardless of how
they were transmitted.
Report with Image
When the transmission is unsuccessful a failure
report with an image of the sent document will
be printed. The image is automatically reduced
to fit the paper, whatever the paper orientation
is in the tray. The document is thereby easily
recognisable for you to be resent.
High Productivity
To meet all the productivity requirements
of today’s business environment,
the AficioTMFAX5000L features a very
fast scanning and transmission speed as
well as an impressive paper capacity.
It also starts sending the first pages while
scanning the rest of your document, and can
handle different functions at the same time.
3-second Transmission
Triple Access
Large-volume faxing results in a substantial
increase in transmission costs. To alleviate this,
Ricoh employs a fast, cost-saving 33.6 Kbps
modem that transmits an A4 page in only
three seconds.
The AficioTMFAX5000L allows you to execute
memory transmission/reception, printout,
and scan-to-memory functions simultaneously.
This powerful feature is especially advantageous during peak hours because it eliminates
unnecessary waiting – both for the sender and
the receiver. For example, even while printing
a received fax message, the AficioTMFAX5000L
can receive another incoming fax and store it
to memory.
Compact Design and
A3 Transmission/Reception
The Aficio™FAX5000L is capable of full size A3
paper sending/receiving. Its wingless design
is remarkably smart; the document feeder
and document receiving tray do not occupy
surrounding space. The setting area requires
merely 505 mm (width) x 609 mm (depth).
Fast 1.5-second Scanning
With the AficioTMFAX5000L, you can scan an
A4-size document into the memory in a mere
1.5 seconds. This means that when sending
multi-page documents, the AficioTMFAX5000L
is available quicker for the next user, minimising
queues at the fax machine.

Triple access
The AficioTMFAX5000L can start transmission
while your documents are still being scanned
into the memory. This enables faster confirmation of connection and ensures faster document
delivery. Furthermore, this process makes the
memory available quicker so outbound documents do not congest the memory and block
the reception of important incoming documents.
Large Paper Capacity
The standard 250-sheet paper capacity can
be expanded to 1,250 sheets using the
500-sheet paper trays. These are practical
options for workgroups with heavy incoming
fax traffic, eliminating the need for frequent
paper refills.
Impressive Input and
Output Capacity
A built-in 50-page Automatic Document Feeder
allows you to send multiple pages unattended,
so even extra-long documents take a minimum
of effort. The output tray can store up to 250
pages—sufficient capacity for large documents.
Fast 15 ppm Printing Speed
With its fast print speed of 15 pages per minute,
important documents are in your hands faster
than you ever thought possible.
