TOKYO, July 12, 2011 - Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. will release DocuCentre-IV 3060 / 2060, monochrome digital multifunction devices that help offices lower environmental impact and save energy on July 29, 2011 in Japan, and in August in Asia Pacific including China. The output speed is 30 pages per minute (A4 long edge feed) and 25 pages per minute (ppm) respectively.
Because of a growing need to save energy caused by global warming, even more after the Great East Japan Earthquake, it is now imperative for office equipment to contribute to lowering environmental impact.
DocuCentre-IV 3060 / 2060 have energy-saving features including;
In addition to these features, DocuCentre-IV 3060 / 2060 are equipped with a high-speed color scanning function at 55 ppmNote3, which helps digitization of paper documents. The scanned data can be saved in PCs or sent as email attachmentNote4, reducing print volume and contributing to energy saving.
Moreover, DocuCentre-IV 3060 / 2060 can visualize levels of eco-friendly printing of users when their print requests are completed.
An LED lamp, used as a light source of the scanning unit, allows 1.5 times the brightness of a xenon lamp of former modelsNote5, and reduces power consumption by approximately 80 percent. Furthermore, because the light source is 1.5 times brighter, DocuCentre-IV 3060 / 2060 do not compromise the image quality of scanned data that is scanned at high speed of 55ppm, both for color and monochrome.
The new models also allow users reduction of print volume for circulars and distributions; scan paper documents at high-speed, compressNote6 the scanned data, and digitalize it in various file formats depending on purposes. Users can store these digital files on PCs or USB flash memories, or send them as email attachments (Figure 1). Furthermore, users can generate DocuWorks or PDF documents with text informationNote7 without special optical character reader (OCR) software. These DocuWorks and PDF documents come in handy when implementing full-text search or reusing the documents.
This feature is incorporated in the Document Monitor software in the Driver CD kit (CD-ROM) bundled with DocuCentre-IV 3060 / 2060.
Once users install the Document Monitor in their PCs, a pop-up window is displayed with a set of leaves (in five levels) indicating if their printing was eco-friendly (Figure 2), when DocuCentre-IV 3060 / 2060 complete their requested printing. This feature is expected to raise environmental awareness among the users.
