Mount Laurel, NJ (July 17, 2014) — OKI Data Americas announces receipt of the prestigious Summer 2014 Pick award for Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency from Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) for its C831 Series of A3 single function color printers. BLI recognized the C831 Series for its variety of features to help reduce waste and energy, including its toner-save and auto color modes which help to minimize toner use.
When comparing these units against competitive A3 printers, BLI noted that the C831 Series from OKI Data exhibits an estimated 56 percent lower than average annual energy consumption rate1 for its peer group. BLI applauded the C831 Series for many attributes which included faster than average recovery times from energy-save and sleep modes.
“BLI strives to bestow awards only to top performers based on internal testing,” said Lisa Reider,
Senior Product Editor for Environmental at BLI. “To date, only a fraction of devices energy tested by BLI earned its Outstanding Achievement award for energy efficiency. We are proud to name the C831 Series from OKI Data as one of the select group of winners.”
BLI noted that the C831 Series meets the requirements for RoHS2 compliance, offering a variety of features to help reduce waste and energy. Toner-save and auto color modes help reduce toner usage. N-up mode, which prints multiple pages onto a single side of paper, and available automatic duplexing helps reduce paper consumption. Tested toner yields also exceeded rated yields during BLI’s evaluation.
