MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., June 13, 2013 OKI Data Americas announces availability of an enhanced series of monochrome single function printers for high volume applications – the B721dn and B731dn. Building on the award-winning legacy of its B700 Series, these new OKI printers deliver a higher toner yield of up to 36,000 page capacity[1] with one piece consumable; 250,000-280,000 monthly duty cycle on the B721dn and B731dn, respectively; increased paper input capacity of up to 3,160 sheets; faster print speeds of up to 55 pages per minute[2]; and standard high speed USB and 1GB Ethernet connectivity – all with the lowest cost per page among competitive devices in their respective categories [3].

The B721dn and B731dn are powerful and cost effective printers, with high speeds, high capacity and high quality output. Both models feature standard 630 sheet paper capacities which can be upgraded to a maximum 3,160 sheets with additional optional paper trays plus a large capacity feeder.

Beyond standard media handling capabilities, the B721dn and B731dn can print banners up to 52 inches in length. In addition, the devices’ straight-through paper path allows users to manually feed individual sheets of up to 140 lb. index bristol. Both are backed by a one-year limited On-Site warranty[3] and industry-leading five-year limited LED printhead warranty.

Standard duplexing features also help improve efficiency and minimize waste. Other environmental features include Quiet mode, toner save mode to reduce consumables use, and low power consumption during regular operation and within deep sleep mode. Furthermore, both models are ENERGY STAR® compliant.

The easy to read LCD display and alphanumeric keypad enhances user interface. Advanced security features allow administrators the ability to protect data and encrypt documents simply and effectively, controlling user access and securing print release for sensitive materials.
