Ricoh has rolled out its latest network colour printing MFDs, the Aficio 2232C and 2238C. The MFDs offer speeds of 24 copies per minute for colour for the 2232C and 28 per minute for the 2238C. For black and white copying they offer 32 and 38 copies per minute, respectively. These output speeds are maintained with double-sided copying/printing. Both MFDs offer a range of network protocols, including USB 2.0, IEEE 1394, Bluetooth and wireless LAN. Both devices come equipped with a web image monitor. This means that a web browser is used for MFD access, eliminating the need to upgrade proprietary software. The devices also offer a User Code Access facility, which restricts access to network colour printing to those who need it. It is also possible to allocate colour costs to departments. The devices are available from Ricoh business centres.
RRP: $12100 – 2232C, $14300 – 2238C.
