Lexmark has announced the availability of a new generation of mid-range monochrome single function and MFP products.

With sturdy metal frames and long-lasting components, the MS and MX 320, 420, 520, and 620 Series of devices offer reliability, durability and duty cycles that minimise waste, enhance longevity and minimise the need for service and support.

Long-life components, cartridge yields up to 25 000 pages, and a maximum input capacity of 2 300 pages (with optional trays) keeps these devices working with fewer user interventions.

All devices feature a scanner that can accurately capture up to 100 images per minute, even with mixed originals. A multicore processor with up to 2Gb of standard memory simultaneously handles multiple tasks so users can send a fax while they print.

Access to time-saving solutions like Scan Centre and Shortcut Centre enhance productivity, accessibility, energy savings, and user experience.

Lexmark boosts productivity by integrating with networks, mobile users, and cloud storage, using standard Ethernet and WiFi to optional interfaces like serial, parallel and fibre.

Security features help protect documents, devices and networks from unauthorised access and are integrated into every product in the series.

The series’ new media handling capability supports a wider range of media types with better performance for more accurate print jobs.

The new devices enable workers to complete tasks via approved mobile devices with the free Lexmark Mobile Print app. Output is also available via AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Mopria or Windows Mobile. A scan-to-mobile feature lets users scan pages on the Lexmark MFP, then view and share the scans from their mobile device.

The devices all meet global environmental requirements, including the new Energy Star 2.0 certification and the Epeat Silver rating.
