Single Pass Technology delivers affordable, high performance colour printing for all users

13 May 2002 - Bourne End, UK. Xerox states there are ‘No Excuses’ for businesses not to migrate to colour printing following its announcement of two single pass workgroup colour printers. Both the Xerox Phaser® 8200 single pass solid ink colour printer and the Xerox Phaser® 6200 single pass laser colour printer take advantage of Xerox’s unrivalled heritage in single pass technology to address the areas that are key to the wider adoption of colour printing in the office: performance, ease of use and reliability at breakthrough price points, making any excuse for not migrating to colour printing obsolete. Xerox’s eight years experience and knowledge of single pass printing has been encapsulated in the new single pass A4 products.

“Xerox is the leader in single pass colour printing, and was the first to market this significant technology advantage,” said Rod Rodericks, vice-president and general manager, Xerox Office Europe. “The affordability and performance of the Phaser 8200 solid ink colour printer and Phaser 6200 laser colour printer further support Xerox’s leadership role in the widespread adoption of colour.”

With a breakthrough price of £ 1,330 excluding VAT for the base configuration (£ 1,620 excluding VAT for the network configuration), the Phaser 8200 makes colour available to all users by offering highly competitive cost per page colour printing. It also challenges monochrome printers with its low cost per page mono printing.

The printer boasts a powerful 300 MHz processor that allows for a first page out time of 9 seconds, as well as speeds of 16 pages per minute (ppm) in fast colour mode and 10 ppm in standard mode. In addition, the Phaser 8200 provides trouble-free installation and easy printer management that gives users the simplicity they need.

The Phaser 8200 offers extraordinary print quality on a variety of media types, making it an excellent fit for office workgroups. This solid ink printer uses unique Phaser® 8200 ColorStix® Solid Ink with shapes to provide no-mistake loading.

With the base configuration price starting at £ 1,850 excluding VAT (network configuration from £ 2,150 excluding VAT), the Phaser 6200 single pass colour laser printer helps offices produce better work by providing superior colour print quality and performance. With a 500 MHz PowerPC processor, 16 ppm at full 2400 dpi resolution and exceptional media capacity and handling, the Phaser 6200 is ideal for office colour. The Phaser 6200 combines time-saving intelligence and design to make it one of the most user-friendly printers available.

With fewer consumables than the typical laser printer, the Phaser 6200 also has a simple paper path
that makes printing more reliable. The printer comes with intelligent software, including an interactive print driver that provides real-time printer status, Phaser Installer for one-click network installation, and PhaserSMART™ Virtual Help Desk.

Both printers come with CentreWare IS embedded Web server for superior printer management and PrintingScout, a software feature that instantly pops up a help window on the user’s computer with visual instructions when the printer needs attention.

The Phaser 8200 and Phaser 6200 have a one-year, free onsite service warranty. Xerox offers telephone support and online customer support. Both printers are available immediately worldwide through resellers and dealers.
