Kyocera will announce the latest model in its Ecosys cartridge-free ceramic laser printer range in two weeks.
The FS-800 is capable of speeds of up to 8ppm, and is designed primarily as a personal printer, or for small workgroups.
The new model will be available in the UK from 25 May. Pricing will be announced closer to the launch date. The printer will be shown in public for the first time at the Networks 98 show in June.
Along with a 50MHz Power PC processor, the printer comes with 4Mb of RAM, upgradable to 34Mb. It provides an output of 600dpi, which the maker claims can be doubled to 1,200dpi through the use of Kyocera's own image refinement technology, KIR2. Postscript level 2 and PCL5e emulation are standard.
The printer's design is similar to those of the others in the range, with a footprint slightly larger than an A4 page. It can be upgraded to include a second paper bin and optional Ethernet and serial interfaces.
"The FS-800 bridges the gap between personal printers and network models," claimed Tracey Rawling-Church, marketing manager at Kyocera.
