Low Power Consumption Design
Reduction of Standby Power Consumption
One of the indexes of negative environmental impact produced when using multifunctional products and printers is electric power consumption. Network computers used at offices, in particular, commonly left on standby at all times. Therefore, reducing standby power consumption is an important issue in environmentally conscious product development.
To this end, KYOCERA Document Solutions tackles the development of an energy-saving controller allowing the most efficient and low-power network monitoring and power control on standby.
EC 801/2013 (Lot 26) information on networked standby (sleep) power consumption
Electric power consumption in standby and the default time to enter this mode have an important impact on the overall power consumption of the devices. In line with the EC 801/2013 (Lot 26) regulations the overview informs about the default timeout to enter the network standby (sleep) mode as well as its power consumption when connected to the stated interfaces.

Reduction of Toner Consumption
Regarding toner, the only consumable in our printers, KYOCERA Document Solutions is striving to reduce emissions of greenhouse gas, one of the causes of global warming, by designing printers so that they can decrease toner consumption while at the same time maintaining or improving image quality. In the TASKalfa 500ci series, launched in January 2009, a newly developed toner with uniform and smooth particles has achieved images with finer definition and higher clarity, while at the same time reducing toner consumption by 30% compared to the conventional toner even at the same image density.
Reduction of toner consumption is only possible by using original KYOCERA Toner. For more about original toner and how they not only save you money, but they also save your staff and your devices' health.
Reduction of warm-up time
Reducing warm-up time by almost half compared to that of conventional models
In the fixing unit, which melts toner to affix it to the paper, newly developed fixing technology utilizing a thin and small-diameter heating roller has reduced warm-up time by almost half compared to that of conventional models. The new technology has enabled a reduction in the time required to recover the printer from standby mode and start printing, while at the same time achieving energy saving.
