Black & white professionals for color workflows
Today, almost every workflow involves color in some form or other. Color output is not always required, but color input, via color scanning, is essential in the modern office. Color is indispensable for the electronic workflows of teams, work groups and departments in more or less any business field, including banking, finance and insurance, accounting and personnel. Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 satisfies these demands with its range of innovative workflow professionals that combine comprehensive black & white output capabilities with flexible and creative color input functionality.
Fast scanning in color and b/w
The Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 is perfect in- and output tools for any situation that requires productive color scanning with b/w printing or copying. As highly efficient and versatile scanners for up to A3 format they make the little desktop A4 scanners obsolete and also do away with the need for separate scan stations.
All four bizhubs scan up to 70 hard originals per minute in both color and black & white. The complete scanning functionality of scan to email (Home), FTP, SMB, Box (HDD required), USB, and TWAIN is standard; and with JPEG, TIFF, PDF, compact PDF, XPS and compact XPS, the bizhub 223 series processes all relevant formats.
Same as the other innovative products in the bizhub portfolio, the Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 series features bEST, Konica Minolta’s bizhub Extended Solution Technology. beST offers a gateway to extended document capturing and distribution applications that make the workflow professionals ideal input tools for teams, work groups and small departments.
Like the other bizhub multifunctionals in the Konica Minolta portfolio, the Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 feature proprietary Emperon™ controller technology that ensures their seamless integration into any standard network setup, which makes them compatible with virtually any customer environment. With standard PCL, PostScript 3, PDF and XPS support, the Emperon™ provides maximum compatibility and is CITRIX ready as well; Windows drivers are WHQL certified. At the same time, the Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 is SAP certified, with Konica Minolta a Gold Partner in the SAP Printer Vendor Program. Users benefit from simple and straightforward installation and assured reliability as well as SAP customer support.
Featuring generous security standards, the Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 is certified to ISO 15408 EAL3. This official security certification represents international standards and underlines the superiority of the Konica Minolta security technologies. All four systems can be connected to secure networks with client authentication via IEEE 802.1x; offer safe network communication by encryption with the IPsec protocol; and feature standard HDD encryption to protect all data on the hard disc against unauthorized use. Authentication via optional finger vein scanner or non-contact ID card reliably limits system access to authorized users and is more convenient than typing in user names and passwords.
Thanks to their extremely low noise level and very quiet operation, Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 is very comfortable to work side by side with and perfectly suited for installation in any location, including open plan offices. User convenience is enhanced with a number of special system features, such as the animated help and user guidance. An optional keyboard further supports the simple and straightforward operation. And the MyTab Printer driver adds extra operation ease, letting users individually combine their frequently needed features in a single setting screen. Corporate environments benefit from the minimized learning curve: To operate the Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 series, virtually no training is necessary.
The Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 offers numerous energy conserving features and are Energy Star and German Blue Angel certified. They impress with very low TEC values that remain well below latest Energy Star regulations and underline the eco-friendly operation. The TEC value represents a product’s typical electricity consumption (TEC) within one week, based on average office use. Even with options such as a finisher installed, these products have extremely low energy consumption. This makes the Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 series not only environmentally sound but can also help considerably to reduce operation costs.
One key factor for the eco-friendly operation is Konica Minolta’s unique Simitri® HD polymerized toner: With its lower fusing point it requires a shorter warm-up time and helps to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. At the same time, Simitri® HD polymerized toner is partially plant based, its use of biomass as well as its production process answering the demands of the modern, CO2 -conscious society.
With low power and sleep mode, the Konica Minolta Bizhub 223 series offers two power saving modes to reduce energy consumption during idle phases. From both modes, the systems restart automatically as soon as a user operates a panel key or a print job comes in. Incoming faxes do not restart the machine but are stored in a secure memory until the device is reactivated
by another process.
