Apex stated that the chips feature an “ASIC design with consistent performance”, and that their “special size” means they can be “installed in B431 series” cartridges. The chips, which are in stock now, can be used on both the B431 and 432 cartridges because “the structure” of both is “the same except for the chip slot”.

The printers, Apex added, are monochrome laser machines launched “for several regions”, with speeds of up to 42ppm and multifunctional capabilities. The first launch included three black chips for the US market, with varying yields of 3,000, 7,000 and 12,000 pages respectively, and the first two chips can be used in: the B412dn; B432dn; B512dn; MB492dn; MB472w; and MB562dnw. The third meanwhile can be used in the B432dn, MP492dn, MB562dnw and B512dn.

Three further chips of the same yields and for the same printers were also launched for the European market and Middle Eastern markets separately. Next, three chips of the same three yields were released for Australia and South Korea, with the 3,000 and 7,000 page chips for use in: the B412; B432dn; B512; MB472dnw; MB492dn and MB562dnw. The third chip meanwhile can be used in the B432dn, MB492dn, MB562dnw and B512dn.

Finally, a 3,000-page chip was launched for the Chinese market and for use in the B412dn and 432dn, while 7,000 and 12,000-page chips were launched in Japan for use in the B432dn machine.
