The Panasonic KX CL500D is a reliable color laser printer that was built to churn out documents and projects on a regular basis. At the center of this machine lies an XPC745 processor with 360 MHz control and 128MB of RAM Memory to increase performance value and to print large quantities at a time. Also, at the heart of this machine are the Panasonic KX CL500D toner cartridges which apply smooth and even tones to media.
This machine is ideal for small and mid-sized businesses and workgroups, having the ability to print up to 17 full-color pages per minute and up to 21 black and white pages per minute. Printouts will start printing in less than 15.5 seconds from the time the machine is commanded to print. Black and white or Monochrome printouts will usually start printing sooner, around 13.5 seconds or less.
The Panasonic KX CL500D toner cartridges will provide optimum performance for all applications whether you are printing monochrome documents or color projects. Color projects can be enhanced to have resolutions up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. With an optional 2.5 inch IDE Hard Disk Drive, offices can preserve the confidentiality of their important documents and projects by enabling the secure printing capabilities. This allows offices to password protect documents and printing abilities to secure important files and keep unwanted users from accessing this machine's ability to print.
The printer is equipped with various networking options and an Ethernet 10/100 Base Tx interface. When connected to the internet, users can control the printer remotely, using a standard web browser. By entering the printer IP address into a URL (browser), the machine's status and toner levels will appear on your computer screen in a small utility window. Users can also connect and share projects over a network, as well as see the other users connected to the printer with the Web Image Monitoring software.
With a large 530-sheet paper cassette, users can print for longer periods without wasting valuable production time on constantly reloading an empty feeder tray. Another smaller, but more conveniently placed 100 sheet multipurpose tray will give users a quick printing solution for printing onto specialty media. The Panasonic KX CL500D toner cartridges, such as the KX-CLPK1 high yield black laser toner, the KX-CLTC1 cyan laser toner, the KX-CLTK1 black laser toner, the KX-CLTM1 magenta laser toner, and the KX-CLTY1 yellow laser toner are extremely easy to replace from the top of the printer.
