Security and Connectivity Features
Secure Printing
Secure printing prevents unauthorised access to confidential documents by holding jobs at the printer. Print jobs will only be released when a password is entered. IPSEC/SSL encryption allows for secure printing of sensitive and confidential document while minimising the risk of an information leak.

Connectivity Features
Increase workgroup printing efficiency with network connectivity enhanced by Gigabit Ethernet support, ideal for even the most complex IT systems. Its direct USB port allows printing without the need for drivers or a PC, resulting in enhanced productivity.

Epson iPrint provides easy access to print using mobile devices. Simply connect the printer to a Wi-Fi router to begin printing wirelessly via your Apple® iOS™ or AndroidTM mobile devices.

Excellent Print Quality
AcuBrite™ Technology
Epson AcuBriteTM toners utilise highly uniform toner particle size and wax distribution for consistently impressive results. This unique printing technology gives you superb clarity with sharpness and outstandingly crisp and bold black text that lasts.

A high resolution of 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi together with Epson’s AcuBriteTM Technology delivers sharp, realistic-looking black-and-white documents.

Advanced Amplitude Modulation (AAM) Screen
Clearer reproduction of small-sized text, detailed graphics as well as web images.

Dot Correction Technology
Improves print quality of fine lines and details in photos and in documents with graphical details such as charts.

Monochrome Visibility Enhancement
An invaluable feature for better reproduction of very lightly coloured text. Depending on the setting, it can help to underline/bold/highlight sections of text for better visibility. This function can also “decorate” (box up/colour) graphs and charts to clearly differentiate segments of the chart. 

Smart Duplex Printing
Epson’s Smart Duplex Printing System doesn’t just stop at saving costs by saving paper. When printing odd number pages in duplex and in set, the last page is printed in simplex to reduce print time by up to 20%.

Easier Management of Print Jobs
With our new print management features, you can easily take control of your workgroup’s printing workflow.

Print Job Arranger Lite
Users can combine several print jobs with the Print Job Arranger Lite and customise print settings for individual print jobs simultaneously. For multipage documents, print settings can be customised for individual pages. Examples include landscape/portrait orientation, single/double-sided, change of paper size, page layout (up to 4-up), and re-arranging pages within a print job.

This feature allows users to interrupt the print queue when there is an urgent print job. Interrupted print jobs are paused and can be resumed later once the urgent tasks are completed. Users can cancel the print job from the control panel even when the printer is in the process of printing.

Epson toner cartridges are made from recycled materials and ozone-free parts to reduce material wastage and environmental impact. The new SOC12-H controller enables power saving modes that temporarily shut down the dual core systems processor when not in use, consuming only 3.1W in sleep mode and 1.2W in deep sleep mode.
