Direct Printing from USB memory
A convenient built-in USB slot lets you plug in a USB memory stick and print data directly from the USB memory without using a PC.
Built-in Wi-Fi® enables a wireless connection to a network PC via your local network, without requiring a physical LAN connection. The WPS key permits you to easily configure a wireless network.
28-ppm Quick Duplexing
Printing on one side of the page can be wasteful and inefficient. That's why these models feature a duplex printing capability. Conventional A4 size multi-function printers invert the pages one at a time, resulting in slow performance and poor productivity. Panasonic multi-function printers come as standard with quick duplexing, making it possible to print both sides at virtually the same speed* as single-side printing.
* Duplex productivity: 93 % (28 ppm)
Mobile printing & Internet Fax
The DP-MB251CX is compatible with the Mobile Print application* and Google Cloud Print™, enabling printing from mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones and giving your business the edge in today’s fast-moving world.
The Internet Fax function dramatically increases fax transmission speed. Panasonic Internet Fax capability far exceeds any Super G3 transmission and with Internet Fax, large jobs can be quickly transmitted over the Internet.
Secure Printing & Scanning
With Secure Print, you can prevent confidential documents from being leaked by protecting them with very high level security. Print data is password-protected and temporarily stored on your computer's hard drive. It can be retrieved and printed only when the password is entered on the printer. Plus, there is no limit to the number of pages you can store since, unlike most secure print systems that use memory-based storage, the secure print data is stored on your PC’s hard drive.*
* Up to 30 jobs can be printed at a time from print data on the hard drive. If there are more than 30 jobs, additional jobs can be printed out after the first 30 jobs have completed.
In order to make secure document scanning, DP-MB251CX supports scanning with password protected PDF file. It improves information leak prevention, and secure document management in your office.
Heavy Duty Design
50,000 pages monthly print volume
Built to handle the rigorous demands of businesses requiring high volume continuous printing capability, the DP-MB251CX features extra tough body construction and machine life of 300,000 pages*. Together with the high yield 8,000-sheet toner cartridge, the DP-MB251CX delivers high speed 30 ppm simplex printing with a maximum duty cycle of 50,000 pages, ideal for large businesses where extra high volume printing is required every day.
* Requires maintenance kit.
500-sheet paper tray
Usually compact MFPs designed to be used in small offices or home offices (SOHO) are equipped with a 250-sheet paper cassette, while commercial printing paper is normally supplied in 500-sheet packs. Despite the compact design and slim profile, with a height of just 400 mm, the DP-MB251CX is equipped with large-capacity cassettes capable of holding a full pack of 500 sheets. This means that you can load all 500 sheets at one time and not have to leave open reams of paper lying around your office.
50-sheet reversing automatic document feeder
The DP-MB251CX is also equipped with an automatic reversing feed function that can automatically scan both sides of the document. This is done using a Reversing Automatic Document Feeder (RADF). Besides improving efficiency, this is especially convenient as double-side printing is becoming more common.
