  •   Control your multifunction printer with ease, thanks to Workstyle Innovation Technology that simplifies even your most complex tasks. You can tap, drag, swipe and scroll with ease on the 10.1" Smart Operation Panel to create unique workflows. It also provides easy integration with smart devices through mobile print solutions, plus near field communications (NFC) capabilities. NFC lets users connect to an MFP by simply touching a smart device (loaded with Smart Device Connector App) to the unit — without joining the office network or having to authenticate.
  •   Boost your paper capacity by an additional 1,100 sheets with the Paper Feed Unit PB3240. Produce jobs at paper sizes up to 11" x 17" and weights up to 80 lb. bond / 166 lb. index.
  •   Make the most of your limited floor space. The Internal Finisher SR3130 (500 Sheet) gives you 50-sheet, multi-position stapling on paper sizes up to 11" x 17" and weights up to 80 lb. bond — without increasing your footprint.
  •   Organize information with the Punch Unit PU3040 NA, which is a 2- or 3-hole punch.
  •   Transform your MFP into an information portal. The standard Hard Disk Drive enables features like locked / hold / stored print, printing from (and scanning to) portable media, data overwrite and encryption features, and more.
  •   Print more complex color and PDF files with PostScript3 Emulation and access additional features like PDF direct print, printing from a Mac OS and mail-to-print.
  •   Manage your fax workflows quickly and conveniently. Fax Option Type M20 adds G3, internet, LAN FAX and IP faxing capabilities to your MFP.
  •   Remotely manage your printer fleet with @Remote. This internet-based tool lets you monitor your device usage, automate meter reads and toner alerts, and quickly alert your service provider of problems to shorten downtime and improve service.
  •   Designed to reduce downtime and service calls on your units, the ESP XG-PCS-15D Power Filter helps condition your inbound power source, which can lead to fewer work disruptions and better performance.
Choose the best multifunction printer configuration for your needs. Designed with the most popular combination of features and benefits, our Signature Series lets you choose the best multifunction printer configuration for your business needs. Choose from a base model that you can fully configure yourself, or save time and streamline installation with the MP C4504ex Essential, Plus or Performance models.
