The OEM claims that the new machines use “up to 40 percent less energy”.
BIT.com reported on the new machines, which include the monochrome single function P203d, P2135d and P2135dn; the monochrome MFP M2030dn, M2530dn, M2035dn and M2535dn; the colour single function P602cdn, P6026cdn and P6030cdn; and the colour MFP M6026cdn, M6526cdn, M6026cidn, and M6526cidn.
The site notes that as “electricity prices increase, the energy consumption of printers is coming under more scrutiny”, and that Kyocera was “among the first printer vendors to stress the need to consider the total cost of ownership throughout a product’s life, and the importance of using long-life components to minimise waste”.
It adds that a big part of Kyocera’s low operating cost claims “centre on the way the company designs its products”, with the only thing that should “need changing during their useful life is the toner”, with total energy consumption now “coming under increased scrutiny”, and that the EcoSys range of machines from Kyocera feature 40 percent less energy consumption as well as Ethernet and wireless connectivity.
