Brother Introduces New "Business Class" Laser Fax line
Brother International Corporation today introduces three new business class laser fax machines - the IntelliFAX-4100, IntelliFAX-4750e and IntelliFAX-5750e - offering an array of features for offices of all sizes.
Each of the new models features a robust 8MB memory, high-yield consumables and large paper capacity. All models are slated to ship in early July 2002.
SOLID STAND-ALONE FAXING
The IntelliFAX-4100 represents the entry-level model for this group, but comes equipped with a strong complement of features that prove a great value for its estimated street price of $399. Its fast up to 15 PPM laser engine produces sharp text and clean graphics when printing faxes or making copies. The 14.4K bps modem and robust 8MB memory allow it to store up to 500 pages(a) for out-of-paper reception or memory transmission applications. Dual access capability and Brother's fast QuickScan feature enable users to scan multiple faxes into memory as fast as 2 seconds per page while the unit is busy sending or receiving.
Several other key functions contribute to the compelling value of the IntelliFAX-4100. They include fax forwarding, paging, remote retrieval, 132-station auto dialing and fax broadcasting to up to 182 locations. The model includes a built-in handset and auto fax/telephone switching for receiving fax and voice calls on the same line.
One of the biggest advantages of the IntelliFAX-4100's laser technology is the low operating cost-per-page. The use of two-piece consumables (separate drum and toner) further contributes to the low operating costs. This model comes standard with a toner cartridge yielding up to 3,000 pages (based on 5% page coverage), but will also accommodate Brother's even more cost-efficient, up to 6,000 page yield cartridge (based on 5% page coverage).
Paper handling for the IntelliFAX-4100 is equally robust. A 30-page automatic document feeder and large 250-sheet paper capacity are conveniently built into the unit, enhancing user productivity and adding to its ease-of-use. For higher volume applications, a second lower paper tray unit can be added as an option(b), expanding the paper capacity to 500 sheets. Multi-copying with sorting, enlargement and reduction is facilitated by its fast, up to 15 cpm laser engine.
The IntelliFAX-4100 also comes with both parallel and USB interfaces, enabling fax customers to expand its functionality to encompass 600 dpi, laser printing applications if their needs change.
TWO SOLUTIONS FOR THE FASTER-PACED OFFICE
Where the IntelliFAX-4100 is ideal for mid volume applications, or the SOHO space, the IntelliFAX-4750e and IntelliFAX-5750e are targeted for larger, more demanding environments. These models feature a SuperG3 33.6K bps fax modem, a larger out-of-paper reception capacity of up to 600 pages(a), optional memory expansion to 40MB(b), a higher capacity auto document feeder (50 pages), a higher number of auto dialing stations (232) and increased fax broadcasting capability (up to 282 locations).
These enhanced features, plus 4-day battery back-up of faxes stored in memory, make the IntelliFAX-4750e and IntelliFAX-5750e perfect where there is constant and heavy fax traffic. Businesses such as law firms, government offices, advertising agencies and public relations firms or similar companies depend on fast, reliable transmission and reception of their important documents. The IntelliFAX-4750e and IntelliFAX-5750e meet or surpass the standards for fax features in these environments. As an added benefit, the savings in telecommunications costs attributable to their high-speed modems can be considerable in such high-volume faxing situations.
The IntelliFAX-5750e, the workhorse of this line, is the only model that comes standard as a high-capacity, network-ready fax. In addition to all of the enhanced features mentioned above, it also ships with a huge 500-sheet paper capacity consisting of dual 250-sheet paper trays and a built-in 10/100 BaseTX Ethernet print/fax server.
This networking capability makes the IntelliFAX-5750e ideal for customers who currently have networks in place, or are contemplating network solutions in the future. While networking capability is standard on the IntelliFAX-5750e, it is available as an option on the IntelliFAX4750e, assuring that this model also represents a safe investment for growing organizations with evolving application requirements.
