Sharp Document Solutions Company of America (SDSCA) introduced three high-end workgroup systems--additions to the MX Series color MFP (multifunctional peripheral) series that debuted earlier this year. The new models, MX-5500N, MX-6200N and MX-7000N, have enhanced features including copier speeds ranging from 55 pages per minute (ppm) to 70 ppm and a larger color LCD display for easy option viewing and programming. All MX MFPs have an advanced, scalable engine design and support the innovative Sharp Open Systems Architecture (Sharp OSA).

Built for heavy volume, the copiers all output color projects at 41 ppm and have B&W speeds ranging from 55 ppm (MX-5500N) to 62 ppm (MX-6200N) to 70 ppm (MX-7000N). All three models can complete jobs quickly using Sharp's Color Scan(2)(TM) technology that minimizes paper handling while maximizing performance and providing faster scan speeds. To keep print and copy jobs processing efficiently, these networked MFPs have the highest on-line paper capacity in their class--up to 6,600 sheets--and a 150-sheet document feeder.

The flagship document systems provide performance with standard features including copy, print, scan and document filing. All models in the MX Series line utilize Sharp's multitasking controller technology with multiple job queuing to process copy, print and scan jobs more efficiently. These models offer an optional Fiery Print Controller to produce graphics-quality color with enhanced color depth using Fiery tools and software.

Since MFPs are an integral part of the networked office, organizations need to ensure they are protected with the same or greater level of security as their PC's. Sharp offers industry-leading security for these network-attached MFPs, which can be enhanced through data security kits that encrypt document data using 128-bit encryption and erase the memory of a document on the hard drive by overwriting encrypted data up to seven times.

For added security, MX Series MFPs all have accounting and management tools to ensure that only authorized users can access the machines. User accounts can be customized to better manage machine usage and related costs by setting limits on different features, such as color copying. The MX Series can also be configured to require users to log into a corporate network, using LDAP protocols, via a virtual QWERTY keyboard on the MFP's large 10.4-inch LCD screen or an optional external USB keyboard before they can copy, scan, fax, or e-mail.
