The Toshiba e-STUDIO407CS multi function printer has earned BLI’s Summer 2014 “Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency” distinction in recognition of its excellent overall performance during BLI’s environmental test suite.
Toshiba has announced that its e-STUDIO407CS multi function printer has received the Buyers Laboratory Incorporated’s (BLI) Summer 2014 “Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency” award. When subjected to BLI’s environmental job stream test, which is designed to simulate real-world workflows, it exhibited a projected annual energy consumption rate 52 percent lower than the average of competitive A4 MFPs tested to date.
Its energy-efficient design and a host of environmentally friendly features further contribute towards securing this award. “For
small- and medium-sized businesses keen to reduce energy consumption and waste, the e-STUDIO407CS is an ideal fit,” said Martin Soane, BLI’s European lab manager. “Users have access to many environmental features, such as proof and job review modes, which help to reduce toner and paper consumption. It also comes defaulted to duplex mode for print output, which encourages best practice printing in the office environment.”
When running 30% and 100% recycled paper, the e-STUDIO407CS performed flawlessly, with not a single misfeed occurring in 10,000 impressions. Aside from its energy efficiency, the 40-ppm A4 colour laser MFP includes toner-save mode for print output, auto-colour mode and N-up mode, which outputs multiple images on to a single sheet of paper. According to the company, this device is ENERGY STAR-qualified and RoHS-compliant, and meets the requirements for Germany Blue Angel, Canada EcoLogo and Nordic Swan Label.
“It is an honour to receive Buyers Laboratory’s Summer 2014 award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency,’ says Chris Mills, Product Manager at Toshiba TEC. “Because of our strong commitment to a more sustainable society, our engineering and development teams continue to create and adopt a rich array of energy-saving and other eco-conscious features throughout each product we offer.”
