Konica Minolta launches versatile office multifunctional

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd has launched the bizhub C452, the latest addition to the highly successful bizhub colour multifunctional range. The bizhub C452 has a 45 prints per minute output speed in black-and-white or colour. Designed for intensive workgroup use, the bizhub C452 has an impressive array of high-productivity features.

Using Konica Minolta's bizhub Emperon print controller, the bizhub C452 offers network print, copy and high-speed network scanning as standard with optional fax functionality. The powerful Emperon controller also includes the advanced 'MyTab' printer driver tab, enabling users to choose their favourite printing functions and post them on a single or 'home' tab for maximum ease of use. 'MyTab' recently received the prestigious 'Outstanding Achievement Award' from Buyers Lab Inc.

An EFI Fiery controller option is also available which uniquely can be run in parallel to the standard Emperon controller. This means that the needs of both office and colour-intensive users can be satisfied simultaneously.

Performance is greatly enhanced with a new a 1 GHz CPU, a 250GB hard disk and 2GB of RAM memory. The high capacity hard disk means graphics and images scanned can be stored at their full 600dpi resolution. To meet the needs of the latest data networks there is compatibility with 1GB Ethernet (1000Base-T) as standard.

Induction Fusing technology means that the bizhub C452 has one of the lowest energy usage values of machines in its class, with power consumption approximately 60 percent below the Energy Star limit. Technological enhancements also give a warm up time of only 45 seconds from cold. The use of Konica Minolta's patented Simitri HD Polymerised Toner, with smaller, smoother, more uniform toner particles allows fusing at lower temperatures and produces high quality images with a wider colour gamut.

For data security, the bizhub C452 complies with the latest international security standard ISO 15408 EAL3. A complete security package, including IEEE 802.1x network access protocol, keep critical information safe, preventing unauthorised access to networks and make tampering with confidential information impossible. For fast and accurate access, Advanced Biometric Authentication Finger Vein Scanner and non-contact IC Card options are also available.

Maximum paper supply is 6,650 sheets with A5 to A3+ sizes up to 300gsm in weight. Banners up to 1.2 metres in length can also be outputted. A range of finishing options are available including booklet making.
