OKI Data announced two new color multifunction models to its Enterprise Series (ES) line-up today, the OKI Data ES9465 and the OKI Data ES9475 A3 printers. These products will replace the CX4545 and CX3535 models respectively and fill a real need OKI had to better participate in the medium and large workgroup markets. The ES9475 performs at 50 ppm and is the fastest Color MFP OKI Data manufactures. It also has a small footprint—just 23″ x 25.3″ x 36.3″ including the reversing automatic document feeder (RADF) and weighs just 166.4 lbs.
The new models sit above the MPS series and present a fast and economical solution for a market that is seeing declining sales prices, but steady unit volume through 2018 (according to IDC tracker’s 2013 Q4 forecasting).
OKI Data ES9465 and ES9475 Copier Finishing Capabilities
The OKI Data ES9465 has an inner finishing option and can support multi-staple and saddle stitching. The OKI Data ES9475 can also support multi-staple and saddle stitching but cannot utilize the inner finishing unit. Both models of the new multifunction device come standard with a reversing automatic document feeder (RADF) and external interface enablers. More importantly, both the ES9475 and the ES9465 will ship with full yield toners.
OKI Data ES Enterprise Series Technology
These Enterprise Series (ES) Multifunction devices from OKI Data feature a copier-based engine with a new OKI LED printhead. This is the technology that allows lower power consumption and the boasted 50 ppm speed on the ES9475 (35 ppm on the ES9465). Both devices use an open API and embedded web browser. The end result is a very extensible architecture that companies can take advantage of when bringing their software applications into the workgroup environment. PaperCut, Drivve and DocuWare are already ready to interface with and utilize these new products.
Both the ES9465 and ES9475 feature print, scan and copy with optional fax capabilities. The models are controlled via a 9″ color touchscreen that tilts and uses the same familiar interface (and open API architecture) as OKI’s Smart MFPs (like the MC770, MC780, MPS3537mc, and MPS4242mc).
OKI Data Security
For security, the models include self-encrypting 320 GB hard drives. This helps prevent unauthorized users from reading data. Plus, the hard drive data is only accessible on the originally installed MFP. If that’s not enough, additional security options are available, including a data overwrite enabler, IPSec enabler, and TWN-4-P / TWN-4-PI multi-format card readers.
ES9475 and ES9465 Other Features and Details
The paper capacity of the OKI Data ES9465 and ES 9475 A3 color multifunction printers varies with the configuration option you choose (see our graphic above for a visual). There are, however, several base options to choose from which will yield various paper capacities to start you off:
- Desk/stand option – 1,200 sheets
- Large capacity feeder – 3,200 sheets
- Paper feed pedestal – 1,750 sheets
- PFP w/ drawer module – 2,300 sheets
The new OKI Data Executive Series (ES) products add a lot to the company’s existing A4 line-up by adding a much-needed LED-based, wide-format (A3) platform that addresses mid to large enterprise workgroup needs. OKI now has a products line that extends the channel to meet the needs of those looking for aigh-speed, high-definition color output and greater media handling capabilities. Both the ES9475 and ES9465 look to provide a pretty decent cost per click and the total cost of ownership seems to be just as good. The OKI Data ES9465 will retail for $22,879 and the speedier ES9475 will carry an MSRP of $28,079. The standard warranty is 90 days.
