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.
* With KX-MB2200CX series, duplexing productivity is 100%. With the DP-MB250CX and KX-MB2545CX, duplexing productivity is 93%.

All DP-MB250CX, KX-MB2545CX and KX-MB2200CX series are equipped with a 50-sheet automatic document feeder capable of handling the smaller A5 and A6 formats as well as A4. This capability should prove especially useful in doctors' offices and pharmacies where smaller documents are commonly used. All the models can print onto the smaller A5 and A6 sizes.

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-MB250CX, KX-MB2545CX and KX-MB2200CX series are 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.
A dedicated ECO button is located on the control panel. When selected, the ECO button enables
two energy-saving functions. First, the duration before the printer enters power save mode is
set to 1 minute. At the same time the 2-in-1 and duplex copy modes are automatically set while
the backlight* is set to OFF, effectively reducing both paper and power consumption.
*Backlight is not available on the KX-MB2275CX and KX-MB2235CX.
Built to handle the rigorous demands of businesses requiring high volume continuous printing
capability, the DP-MB250CX features extra tough body construction and machine life of 300,000
pages*. Together with the high yield 8,000-sheet toner cartridge, the DP-MB250CX 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.
The DP-MB250CX is also equipped with an
automatic reversing scan 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.
* Available on the DP-MB250CX and KX-MB2545CX.
In addition to GDI printing, the Windows compatible DP-MB250CX comes as standard with PCL emulation capability. PCL
emulation is widely used around the world, making it easy to use the DP-MB250CX as an output printer across a network.
* Available on the DP-MB250CX, KX-MB2545CX and KX-MB2200CX series.
Pressing the one-touch fax key puts the DP-MB250CX into fax mode. A built-in large capacity 7.9 MB memory enables the DP-MB250CX to store up to 400 received pages and 200 sending pages. Both G3 fax modem and an internet fax function come standard with the DP-MB250CX. These allow you to send and receive fax documents via LAN, helping you reduce both time and money.
If the printer is out of use for 1 minute*,
the DP-MB250CX, KX-MB2545CX and KX-MB2200CX
series will automatically enter Power Save mode. If
the printer is not used for another 5 minutes, it will
enter sleep mode and the power consumption drops
to less than 1 watt.
*Depends on user setting of power save mode timer.
All the operation buttons and softtouch keys are concentrated on the front control panel in a simplified layout. A slanted panel design allows the user to easily operate the printer whether standing up or sitting down.
