Lanier Worldwide, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ricoh Corp., has introduced a business-class fax solution, the Lanier LF310 Document Communications System, which offers an optional network interface board for Macs and PCs in network environments.
The LF310 offers faxing and optional laser printing. It sports a 33.6 kbps modem and prints incoming faxes at 15 pages per minute. A built-in automatic document feeder holds up to 50 sheets. Other standard features include dual access, 30 quick-dial keys and a speed dial directory. Advanced capabilities include a Memory Lock feature that will hold received faxes in memory until an authorized recipient enters a valid password, and a restricted access feature that requires users to enter an access code prior to sending a fax. The LF310 will even print a report showing who sent faxes, how many faxes were sent and when they were sent.
For advanced communications, the Lanier LF310 can be equipped with a memory upgrade that stores up to 1,500 pages. In the event of a power loss this memory option will protect pages stored in memory because it’s not dependent on a battery to maintain its storage. For laser printing, there’s an optional PCL6 laser print module that produces 600 dpi prints at 15 pages per minute. Also available is a PostScript Level 2 emulator.
