DSales launches new Develop mid-range colour multifunctionals

DSales (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for the Develop range of multifunctional document imaging systems, has launched a new generation of Develop mid-range colour systems. The new ineo+ 224e/284e/364e offer 22, 28 and 36 colour or mono A4 prints per minute respectively but otherwise have the same feature specifications.

A highlight of the three new systems is the multi-touch operating panel. Anyone familiar with smartphone and tablet operation will feel instantly at home with the ineo+ 224e/284e/364e. The tiltable nine inch colour touchscreen display lights up allowing well known multi-touch operations including such as flick, drag and drop and pinch in and out. Improved navigation structure allows easy feature selection with the user able to see all functions in one go and select the required settings with just a few clicks. Users can customise the screen to their individual requirements to save themselves time and boost efficiency.

The print engine and innovative HD (High Definition) toner are finely tuned to deliver razor-sharp 1,200 dpi copies and prints with brilliant colours and easily readable small type. Output can be onto envelopes, recycled paper, pre-printed paper, overhead transparencies and other media including card up to 300gsm thick. A broad range of paper sizes formats from A6 to A3+ (SRA3) or user-defined formats can be used and banners of up to 1.2 metres in length can be printed for posters and point of sale material.

With growing demand for electronic filing the ineo+ 224e/284e/364e can help to improve the efficiency of the document workflow by reducing the amount of manual work involved in scanning. Documents can be scanned directly as Word (.docx), Excel (.xlsx), PowerPoint (.pptx) or searchable PDF files to do away with the need for manual file conversion. Scanned documents can also be distributed in a variety of ways, including as e-mails or through transfer to a Windows folder or FTP server.

For customers wishing to cut energy costs and carbon footprint the ineo+ 224e/284e/364e have various energy saving functions include a very economical sleep mode and a dynamic Eco Timer that adapts the system's active phases to its actual operating periods. As a result, the ineo+ 224e/284e/364e consume very little power in average office use. Other 'green' functions include automatic deletion of blank pages to avoid paper wastage.

To ensure data security the ineo+ 224e/284e/364e are certified to ISO 15408 EAL 3 computer security standard and comply with IEEE 2600.1, the international standard for multifunctional printer security. Numerous features such as hard-disk encryption, data erasure (when required) and standard compliance with TSL, SSL and IPsec provide full reassurance of data integrity. A secure printing function prevents documents from getting into the wrong hands and access to the system can be restricted to authorised users only.

Commenting on the new colour mid-range launch, Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director of DSales (UK) said, "Constant innovation means that the Develop multifunctional range is the most technically advanced on the market. These three new systems take what is best in the existing range and add intuitive touch-screen control and a host of eco-friendly features. Today our customers demand low-energy systems and maximum data security. With the ineo+ 224e/284e/364e we meet their needs."
