Bizhub C281/C221/C221s


Bizhub C281/C221/C221s

The narrowest*1 main unit width in their class
A slim body with a width of just 559 mm makes the bizhub C281 series the narrowest*1 MFPs in their class. They can be installed in more locations in the office including on desktops or even the floor with the optional Desk DK-512 equipped.
*1 According to Konica Minolta research as of December 2013.

Function-packed in a compact size
Despite their slim bodies, the bizhub C281 achieves high-speed outputs of 28 ppm in colour (A4), while the C221 and C221s deliver outputs of 22 ppm in colour (A4). Two paper cassettes and a manual bypass feeder are standard equipped for a maximum paper feeding capacity of 1,150 sheets. The upper cassette holds A4 size paper and the lower cassette A3 size paper while the bypass feeder can be used when required.

Standard PDL including PCL, PostScript and XPS
Standard PDL including PCL, PostScript and XPS Various PDLs (Page Description Language) – including PCL for general business applications such as Microsoft office, PostScript used for graphic design and DTP, and XPS which supports Windows Vista or later office systems – are supported for smooth print outs. Mac OS is also supported by the commonly used PostScript PDL.

Class-above printing quality
Like the higher-end bizhub MFPs, the bizhub C281 series adopt Konica Minolta’s proprietary Emperon controller. Its advanced image processing delivers richer gradations by changing dot sizes.

Direct printing with PageScope Mobile*1 and USB memory devices
The C281 series let you print directly from iPhones / iPads and Android mobile devices installed with PageScope Mobile*1 or from USB memory devices.
*1 Free Apps (can be downloaded from Google Play or App Store).

High quality colour reproduction and two-colour mode
In addition to vivid colour and monochrome outputs, a two-colour mode is also available for black + red outputs. It can be selected and used to match the document or purpose.

Various functions
*”N-in-one printing/copying function” aggregates multiple pages onto one sheet to save paper.
*”Watermark security function” adds text on the entire page of copies to prevent unauthorised duplications.
*”Cover mode”allows different types of paper than the body pages to be fed for the cover.
*”Blank Page Removal function” skips blank pages contained in the original when scanning.

Low-noise design for a quieter office
The bizhub C281 series reduces operating noise by employing fewer fans and a design that minimises noise from emitting outside the machine.

Simitri HD toner
Simitri HD toner reduces environmental impact during its production and consumes less power during use thanks to low-temperature fusing. The black toner is carbon neutral as it is produced with plant-based biomass materials.

Power button for easy energy saving
The bizhub C281 series can easily be switched to Sleep mode by pushing the Power button. In addition, “ErP Auto Power Off” mode, which supports the ErP Directive*1, easily saves power when the bizhub is not in use.

Easily clears Energy Star Program TEC values
The bizhub C281 series’ energy-saving design clears the Energy Star Program Ver. 2.0 TEC values by a large margin. TEC values are even much lower than the previous model helping to significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
Yearly CO2 emissions:
TEC value × 52 weeks × emission factor
(From the November, 2011 press release by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment.)
