OKI's line of LED printers offer energy-saving features and a compact footprint the company says is ideal for small workspaces and cost-conscious businesses.

OKI Data Americas, which markets its products under the OKI Printing Solutions brand, announced the launch of A4/Letter color and mono LED printers for the small to medium-size market, expanding its lineup of workgroup printing solutions. The company is positioning the compact C330dn and C530dn color LED printers as ideal for small workgroups requiring fast print speeds, flexible media handling and consistent color output quality. The B411 Series and B431 Series of mono LED printers offer fast print speeds, high consumable yields and duty cycles in a compact design suited for small workspaces.

The C330dn Color LED printer offers print speeds of up to 23 pages per minute (ppm) color and 25 ppm mono. Featuring a standard built-in duplexer and a paper capacity of 350 sheets, which is expandable to 880 sheets with an optional 530-sheet 2nd paper tray. The C330dn also has a monthly duty cycle of 45,000 pages. The C330dn is 9.5 inches in height, making the device ideal for offices with limited space. The C330dn also comes standard with a 128 MB RAM upgradeable to 640 MB.

The compact C530dn color printer also includes one of the highest standard memories at 256 MB, which is expandable to 768 MB. An optional 530-sheet paper tray brings the total paper capacity to 880-sheets with the benefits of duplex-printing standard.

Equipped with PCL6 and PostScript 3 emulations along with USB and network connectivity, both of these color LED printers have been designed to deliver enhanced performance. Furthermore, both models are EnergyStar qualified. The C330dn and C530dn also feature an automatic eco Mode. When printing only a few pages at a time, these printers enter this energy-saving, mode. Users will experience the same color output, but with lower power consumption. Plus mono only printing is available when color toners are depleted on both models.

"The SMB market is not only looking for faster devices, but bringing color printing in-house is also a priority to cut costs and maximize efficiencies," said Mike Garofola, Senior Marketing Manager, Color Products, OKI Data Americas. "The C330dn and C530dn products meet both those needs by providing exceptional color output with best in class print speeds to increase productivity while producing high-quality documents that can be done in-house. The addition of both color products truly enhances our portfolio of color devices by delivering fast, high quality and versatile printing solutions."

Designed to provide desktop workgroup performance with a user-friendly LCD panel, the B411 Series mono LED printers come in two configurations: B411d and network-ready B411dn. Both configurations come standard with automatic duplex, PCL6 emulations and 250-page input expandable to 781 pages maximum. The B411 Series is equipped with PCL6 emulation and offers standard USB and bi-directional parallel connectivity. The B411 Series has the highest duty cycle in its class and comes with a resolution of 2400 x 600 dpi. Other features include 4,000-page toner capacity and print speeds up to 35 ppm.

"OKI Data Americas understands the evolving needs of our mono customers. That's why we strive to bring products to the market that meet the demands of the ever-changing office environment," says Kristen Dileo, marketing manager for mono products at OKI Data Americas. "The B411 Series and B431 Series are compact and versatile mono printers that not only deliver on features and performance, but they save time, cut cost and add value to any office environment."
