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%.

A5/A6-size Compatible Automatic Document Feeder
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.

500-sheet Paper Cassette in Compact Size
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.
Heavy-Duty Design for High-Volume Professional Use
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.
Automatic Double-Side Scanning*
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.
PCL Print Language Compatible*
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.
Comprehensive Fax Functions
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.
Low power consumption
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.
Easy-to-operate control panel
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.
