<p>Ricoh’s Aficio MP C2550 colour multifunctional device (MFD) has been awarded a five star rating from Buyers Laboratory Inc (BLI) in environmental performance. As a result of BLI’s rigorous evaluation process, the device was recognised as offering the lowest annual energy consumption and cost when compared with competitive models in its speed range.</p>
<p>During the testing, the Aficio MP C2550 used significantly less energy in all running modes, including colour, black-and-white, simplex, duplex, copy and print, when compared with models in its segment. The Aficio MP C2030 and MP C2050, which are in the same product family as the MP C2550, also offer the same environmental benefits and performance.</p>
<p>The results of BLI’s environmental job stream test, which measures energy consumption for typical real-world usage, contributed substantially to the Aficio MP C2550’s lower than average energy consumption rating.</p>
<p>In addition to environmentally conscious products, Ricoh recently launched its new Total Green Office Solutions (TGOS), a consultative service which helps businesses eliminate inefficiencies, reduce carbon footprint and adopt more sustainable business through detailed reporting on CO2 emissions, power consumption and paper use.</p>
<p>“Ricoh has a long history as a leader in sustainability, in how we operate as a company as well as through our product stewardship. These two strengths now come together in our TGOS offering,” said Les Richardson, Managing Director of Ricoh Australia. “We offer a great service that helps our customers improve their sustainability and energy usage. Our energy-efficient MFDs are key to unlocking better ways to work and share while minimising carbon footprints.”</p>
<p>While low energy consumption is an important efficiency measurement, it cannot be used to its fullest potential if the device requires a long recovery time from sleep mode. That’s why BLI’s environmental performance test takes into account recovery time as well as energy consumption. The Aficio MP C2550’s recovery time from sleep mode was considerably faster than average, resulting in more energy savings with less waiting time, earning it a five star rating in this aspect of testing along with its five star rating for energy consumption. Thanks to quick recovery technologies such as a compact, heat responsive fusing unit and new PxP color toner with a low melting point, more energy savings are possible with less waiting time.</p>
<p>The Aficio MP C2550 has a toner-save mode. It also has a proof mode for copy and print jobs to allow for document checking before long run jobs are printed. In addition, BLI’s tests showed that the MFP’s overall copy and print productivity and noise emissions are competitive with other tested products.</p>
