The company's B700 Series monochrome printers boast compact form factors and fast print speeds.

Printer manufacturer OKI Data Americas announced the addition of the B700 Series of monochrome printers, priced from $625 to $1,249 and designed for small to medium-size workgroups. The B700 Series has a variety of performance-enhancing features, including an alphanumeric keypad with a five-line blue backlit LCD display for navigation and menu access. A USB port located on the control panel allows users to print directly from a flash drive. Additionally, all models can print up to 95 envelopes without the need for a separate external feeder.

All B700 Series models come with 128MB of memory and the option of increasing memory to 640MB for processing large files. The mono printers offer standard security features through user access controls, administrative management solutions, storage device security and security protocols. All models can be purchased through OKI Data Americas' authorized partners.

Registered User Database works in conjunction with OKI Job Accounting software (standard) to limit user access, Protocol Admin enables or disables individual protocols, and Password Access via the Web provides general administrative control and access to a library of secure prints. Finally, with six-digit Strong PIN and the capability to auto-delete coupled with the secure erase functionality, administrators can require a PIN for stored jobs on hard disk drive or flash memory, delete stored jobs after designated expiration date, and erase data on hard disk or flash memory.

In addition, the printers offer a variety of environmentally friendly features. Toner-Save Mode, a user-selectable setting, reduces the use of consumables when lower resolution output can be utilized. One-piece consumables decrease waste by lowering the number of items to dispose of or store, while duplexi printing saves energy and paper. The company also noted all B700 Series models are Energy Star-complaint and engineered to perform with low power requirements during regular operation.

The B700 Series comes in six configurations that deliver a compact footprint and up to 52 pages per minute, with first page speeds of up to 8 seconds. With a monthly duty cycle of 200,000 pages, the line also features a 700-sheet standard paper capacity (which is expandable to 1,800 with optional second and third paper trays). The B700 Series is also flexible enough to handle paper weights to 216 gsm. With a high paper capacity and toner yields of up to 26,000 and a print resolution of 1,200 by 1,200 dpi, the B700 Series provides output on a variety of media from small cards to banner-size sheets.

"The full-featured, energy-efficient B700 Series brings professional quality and functionality for small to midsize workgroups at a cost-effective price, enhancing overall office efficiency," said Carl Taylor, director of marketing for OKI Data Americas. "With the addition of this series to our diverse portfolio of printing technologies, our partners have more choices in providing reliable printing solutions to customers, meeting the ever-changing and -demanding workplace requirements within the SMB market."
