Detailed Features

Exceptional print quality and superior speed

Output is a rapid 85 pages per minute for A4 output for black and white printing. It offers exceptional productivity and quality due to the following attributes:

Powerful, productive Image Server

The iR8500 is equipped as standard with a 10 GB integrated image server. This provides extensive possibilities for high performance document management and handling, making data exchange within a network easier and more efficient. It also enables copy reservation for up to 5 jobs - with no limit to the amount of images that can be scanned in continuously. Up to 100 mailboxes are available, with a maximum capacity of 2000 documents containing up to 7700 pages.

Remote User Interface (RUI)

A web-based remote user interface allows users to control operations directly from their workstations. This provides easy job administration, with advanced mailbox operation, priority settings and a time-saving status check. The iR8500 offers full PostScript and PCL support whilst enabling users to create their own printing profiles.

Flexible Finishing

The iR8500 features creative finishing options to satisfy all needs.

Automatic tab sheets insertion plus a tab sheet printing facility are also available. The saddle finisher comes in two versions; either with a 2 or 4-hole punching for filing purposes. Additionally, a document insertion unit offers advanced finishing functionality.
