Scanning Features

The MFX-3590 features a high-resolution color scanner and can deliver documents to PC folders (DirectScan™), e-mail addresses, FTP locations, USB flash drives or document management applications (ScanTag®) at the touch of a button.

DirectScan™ is a key feature as it allows customers to perform a real-time browse of their network file structure and directly scan documents into specified folders, without having to install any additional hardware or software connectors. This operation mirrors the file searching process that Windows Explorer users have become accustomed to using on their PC. Up to (300) folder shortcut keys can be registered for one-touch scan initiation.

The optional ScanTag® application enables users to seamlessly capture metadata and document images from the MFX-3590 and transport them directly into document management systems for automatic indexing. Using this feature companies can deploy powerful document on-ramps into individual workgroups to increase the usage and success of their document management program. ScanTag® has been certified for use with document management solutions from Computhink, DocuWare, Doculex, iDatix, InfoDynamics, Prism Software, Rebus Technologies, SentryFile and Square 9 Softworks.

The MFX-3590 also supports direct scanning into cloud-based storage solutions such as Evernote™.

Faxing Features

On the fax side the internal address book can house up to (1000) locations, each containing both a fax number and e-mail address. Users may import contacts from Microsoft Outlook (vCard) or other contact management databases (CSV). The intuitive PC fax driver enables users to send documents directly from PC applications to remote fax terminals.

Group dialing (100 groups), broadcasting (mixed fax/e-mail broadcasting supported), transmission confirmation reports, inbound fax routing to e-mail and secure fax reception is supported.

Although companies are migrating from dedicated analog fax lines to network fax servers, a majority of users still require a method of sending hardcopy documents to a remote fax terminal. The optional e-mail gateway application meets this demand by allowing users to enter a fax number (as they would when sending a regular fax) and press [Start]. The MFP will take the number that was entered and automatically convert it into a dialing string that can be utilized by the fax server.

Device & Document Security

The MFX-3590 delivers a host of security features designed to restrict device access, audit usage and insure document integrity.

The toner cartridge (TS3510) is rated at 24,000 @ using ISO test chart 19752 and the drum unit (DK3510) is rated at 60,000 impressions. Both front-loading consumables are user-changeable.
