Flexible and advanced security features to protect valuable information

Authentication on the MFP main unit

User can perform Authentication directly on the main unit. Access control can be set up for functions like print, scan, copy and fax*1. *1 FAX feature requires optional FAX Kit FK-513 and HDD will be needed if MFP does not equip the HDD as standard.

IC card authentication

Users can authenticate*2 with various types of IC card*3. The authentication method complies with SSFC (Shared Security Formats Cooperation). Besides the IC Card, users can authenticate with Android devices*4 with equipped NFC antenna.

*2 Optional Authentication Unit AU-201S and Device Connection I/F Kit EK-608 or EK-609 are required.

*3 Compliant non-contact IC cards include FeliCa (IDm), SSFC, FCF, FCF (campus), FeliCa Private, and MIFARE (UID).

*4 Requires Android 4.4 or later that supports HCE (Host Card Emulation) or PageScope Mobile for Android v4.1 or later.

Biometric authentication

Scans the veins on the finger as the biometric data which offers very high-level security and is easy to implement.

TPM (Trusted Platform Module)

TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a security chip which encrypts and decrypts confidential data. The information is encrypted and stored in dedicated storage area in the chip to avoid unauthorized reading.

* Optional i-Option LK-115 v2 is required.

Server-less pull printing

With server-less pull printing, print jobs sent by user can be printed from any MFP in the same network.

* A pull printing system consisting of a maximum of 10 MFPs can be created. It is necessary that all corresponding MFPs be in the same network.

* Optional i-Option LK-114 and Upgrade Kit UK-211 are required to be installed to each of the MFP.

ID & print

To restrict the outputs to specific user or print confidential documents, user can set a password before executing the print. The print data will be stored in the HDD of the MFP and will not be printed until the same password is entered on the MFP.

Innovation helping everyone to reach the full potential

Screen display enlarge and colour reversal functions

For better visibility now it is possible to enlarge the text on the buttons and reverse the screen display colour while maintaining the same contrast ratio.

Detachable paper cassette

Paper cassette of the bizhub is detachable to easily remove the jammed paper that has remained inside the MFP.

Environmental contribution is always the top priority

Top class power consumption and TEC value in its class

The MFP’s CPU power is set to turn off during sleep mode. This results in a best-in-class 0.5 W power consumption ratio (during sleep mode). The TEC value has also been reduced approximately by 67-68%. CO2 emission from the MFP is drastically reduced.

* Values for 220-230 V

* TEC values applied to the International Energy Star Program Version 2.0

* Yearly CO2 emissions:TEC value × 52 weeks × emission factor(From the November, 2011 press release by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment.)
