Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) announces two new A4 monochrome multifunction printers (MFPs) designed for businesses and educational institutions that want the function of a larger monochrome MFP in a smaller footprint. The BP-B540WR and BP-B550WD letter/legal size MFPs feature faster print speeds, an enhanced user experience and a compact design that includes many of the leading features of Sharp’s existing workgroup A3 MFPs. The BP-B540WR offers print speeds of up to 40 pages per minute and features a reversing single pass feeder. The BP-B550WD offers print speeds of up to 50 pages per minute and features a duplexing single pass feeder. Both models include a 7″ (diagonal) capacitive touchscreen that offers a user-friendly, graphical interface with simplified easy modes and Sharp OSA 6.0 compatibility for a more fluid, intuitive work experience. Built on the same platform as Sharp’s workgroup A3 MFPs, these models feature similar, robust security features, such as a standard system integrity check at startup, firmware attack prevention, allow listing and optional antivirus protection powered by Bitdefender.
