All three machines have optional printing and scanning capabilities. When
used for network printing, the devices come standard with 64MB (upgradeable
to 576MB) of RAM. The optional print Hard Disk Drive (HDD) provides
several capabilities, including document printing and e-MPS functions,
private print, job storage, quick copy, proof and hold, and virtual
mailboxes. The optional network print system supports all popular operating
systems and page description languages including PRESCRIBE, PCL6 (PCL XL,
PCL 5e). For enhanced productivity, the PDF Direct Print Utility allows a
user to print PDF files outside of the application and utilize all the
finishing options associated with the MFPs. All three devices include a
standard High Speed USB 2.0 interface for added connectivity.
The KM-3035 / KM-4035 / KM-5035 each come standard with a 3-way, 1200
sheet paper supply (Max. 4,200) and duplex. Optional advanced finishing
and paper handling are also available. All three devices also have the
option of being upgraded with a 20GB HDD. The copier HDD allows onboard
storage of up to 70,000 letter-sized documents.
The network scanning capability is TWAIN compliant, and provides users
with 50 originals per minute scanning (PDF or TIFF, up to 600 dpi, simplex
or duplex) on all three devices. Additionally, the devices offer KM
Document Flow System, a document management system, Scan-to-e-mail with the
LDAP functionality, which allows users to access and search a corporate
e-mail database, and Scan-to-file for Mac and PC.
Network fax capability on the KM-3035 / KM-4035 / KM-5035 includes Super
G3/33.6 Kbps for high-speed delivery of documents. Users can also send and
receive faxes from a desktop, direct incoming faxes to specific folders,
store frequently used destinations, attach cover letters and add messages.
Users also have the option to integrate the KM-3035 / KM-4035 / KM-5035
onto the network with the IB-22 (802.11b) embedded wireless LAN Interface
for all their printing needs. This interface allows users to place the
system where they need it to enhance their floor space design, all without
the cost of running additional network cabling.
