Advanced Document Processing
The magicolor 2500 Series printer drivers provides several advanced
document processing functions which are described below:
Printer-based electronic collation
Instead of transmitting a multiple-page print job several times over the
network to print the number of copies required, simply tell the printer
driver how many copies you want. The job is transmitted once, but the
printer outputs the required number of copies. Called printer-based
electronic collation, this feature enables the printer to deliver the
required number of copies, with the pages in the proper order, without
bogging down the transmission line.
N-up printing
The printer driver s n-up option allows you to print a 2, 4, 6, 9, or 16
pages of a multi-page document on a single sheet of media. Add a
border line and select the flow of the pages across the sheet using
easy-to-understand settings.
N-up printing
Form overlays
A form overlay is an image that is printed either on the first page or on
all pages of a document.
Watermarks
A watermark is a word or phrase that is repeated on each printed page.
You can add common text watermarks such as CONFIDENTIAL and
DRAFT to a document or create a custom watermark. The printer
driver also includes selections for indicating the watermark s font, style,
size, color, placement, and angle.

Consumables
magicolor 2500 Series printers consumables are
intelligent, easy to monitor, and easy to replace.
User-Replaceable Supplies
† Cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK) toner cartridges
† Drum Cartridge
The magicolor 2500 Series printers four (CMYK) toner cartridges are each
color-coded for error-free installation and replacement, and feature an
intelligent chip that stores information on toner levels for accurate supplies
monitoring. (See Supplies Monitoring later in this guide for further
information).
When a toner does require replacement, it will rotate to present itself for
changing. Toners are easily accessible via the front cover, which features
step-by-step instructions for removing empty and adding new cartridges.
Consumable supplies are easily
accessible. The inside front
cover guides you through the
replacement process.
Drum Cartridge
The drum cartridge includes both the OPC drum and waste toner box.
The waste toner box captures excess toner from the printing process
and prevents engine damage from loose toner particles. An agitation
screw inside the waste toner box ensures efficient waste toner storage.
Simitri Polymerized Toner
KONICA MINOLTA Simitri (pronounced symmetry ) Polymerized Toner
produces exceptional output. Its particles are smaller and more uniform
in size and shape than conventional, pulverized toner, providing finer
lines, better halftones, and improved image quality, regardless of media
type used.
Polymerized Toner
To ne r : 6 ì m
Paper
T on e r : 8 ì m
Pulverized Toner
Paper
Simitri Polymerized Toner also has a higher transfer efficiency than
regular toner, further contributing to output quality while producing less
waste toner in the form of toner dust, which remains on the surfaces of
drum cartridges, transfer belts, and rollers after a page has printed. A
lubricant encapsulated within the toner particles eliminates the need for
fuser oil, meaning that you have one less consumable to buy.
Polymerized Toner is also more environmentally friendly, emitting less
carbon acid gas (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur oxide (SOx) in
production process.
Simitri Polymerized Toner adheres better to the
media surface as a result, prints are more durable,
with images and text that don t smear or fade.
17
Consumable Yields
Consumable yields are expressed as an average number of letter/A4
pages at 5% coverage. However, actual consumable life depends on
such variables as page coverage, page size, media type, continuous or
intermittent printing, number of color planes, ambient temperature, and
humidity.
Optimal consumable life is achieved with continuous printing (three or
more pages per job). Intermittent printing (one page per job) reduces
consumable life.
In-box Consumables
The magicolor 2500 Series printers s standard in-box toner CMYK
cartridges contain enough toner for an average of 1,500 prints at
standard 5% coverage, letter/A4-size paper, continuous printing. Also
included in the shipment is a full-capacity drum cartridge.

Color Control
Get great color without great effort.
Professional Color Tools
The magicolor 2500 Series printers have been designed with the color
novice in mind. These printers features an internal color matching
system that automatically selects the proper color model based on the
specific elements on any given page. They also include enhanced
Automatic Image Density Control (eAIDC), which produces consistent
color on each and every printed page.
Automatic ICC-Based Color Matching
Driver-based color matching selections are easy
to access and use.
The magicolor 2500 Series printers drivers include an ICC-based color
matching system that provides single-button controls for automatic
correction of color files. Using built-in ICC profiles and an sRGB color
space, this printer-resident system makes it as easy to get great color
from a PowerPoint presentation as it is from a desktop publishing
application such as QuarkXPress. Both inexperienced and professional
color users will find its color matching methods easy to navigate.
When the color matching system is activated, users can choose from
three different color rendering methods for three different types of page
elements (graphics, images, and text):
‰ Colorimetric This is the best choice when you re printing solid
colors, automatically making adjustments for consistent,
predictable output.
‰ Perceptual This is the ideal selection when you re printing
photographic images. It s tuned to enhance images for highquality proofs.
‰ Saturation When bright colors are needed for text and graphics,
this is the best selection.
Fine-tune color output with the printer driver s
slider-bar color adjustments.
If you prefer, you can use the driver s custom selections to manually
fine-tune your color output. The convenient slider bars make it easy to
adjust image contrast, brightness, saturation, and sharpness.
28
Enhanced Automatic Image Density Control (eAIDC)
From day to day, and from one consumable change to the next, toner
density may change, ultimately affecting color consistency. To maintain
color consistency and ensure predictable color without user intervention,
the magicolor 2500 Series printers automatically perform enhanced
Automatic Image Density Control at the following times:
‰ When the printer is turned on after a temperature or humidity
change has occurred
‰ When the printer exits from Energy Saver mode after a
temperature or humidity change has occurred
‰ When the printer is turned on or exits from Energy Saver mode
after a predetermined number of pages have been printed (200
pages since the last quick AIDC or 1000 pages since the last full
AIDC)
‰ After a consumables change
eAIDC means consistent color on every print.
‰ Whenever requested by the user through the Engine/Service/
Color Calibration menu (magicolor 2530 DL only).
29
Options &
Requirements
Build it to your specifications.
Duplex Option
You can perform manual duplexing on the magicolor 2500 Series
printers by printing on one side of a page, turning it over, and then
printing on the other side.
For more convenient two-sided printing, an automatic duplex option is
available for the magicolor 2530 DL. It installs on the side of the printer
and adds very little width to the footprint of the printer. To support fullcolor duplex printing on all page sizes, an additional 128 MB of memory
is required for 600 x 600 dpi resolution and 1200 x 600 dpi resolution;
an additional 256 MB of memory is required for 2400 x 600 dpi
resolution.
500-sheet Cassette
An optional 500-sheet cassette can be added to the magicolor 2530 DL,
increasing input to its maximum capacity of 700 sheets. The cassette
accepts up to letter-size paper and attaches conveniently underneath
the printer. Adding this option not only reduces the frequency of paper
refills, but allows you to load more than one type of media in the
printer perfect for printing a mixture of regular documents, letterhead,
forms, and preprinted stock.
Memory
The magicolor 2530 DL has one slot available for memory. Memory can
be upgraded to 576 MB using 64 MB, 128 MB, 256, and 512 MB
SDRAM. Additional memory can improve the printer s performance,
especially in a network environment, and enables printing at the highest
resolution when using the automatic duplex option.
Extended Warranties
To further ensure trouble-free operation and to maximize the capabilities
of your printer, KONICA MINOLTA offers multiple extended warranty
options for the magicolor 2500 Series printers, including 1- and 2-year
extended exchange warranties, and 1- and 2-year on-site service
upgrades.
