Expanding its offerings for the small office market, Xerox has launched a clutch of laser copier/printers in its WorkCentre range.
The three models form the new XE series which, the company claims, offers a 25% saving on the cost of buying separate printer and copier units.
Xerox also claims that the units occupy 20% less space than comparable analogue photocopiers and, because they have fewer moving parts, they should prove mechanically more reliable.
Like standard photocopiers, the XE80, XE82 and XE84 offer a normal stationary platten scan and print copier service but can also be connected to a PC to act as Windows-driven laser printers. In copier mode, the XEs offer resolutions of 600dpi and print speeds of six copies per minute but, when acting as an eight page per minute printer, the resolution changes to 1,800 x 600dpi.
The maximum paper size is 216mm x 356mm (legal) but there is also a zoom facility, which has preset magnification values, and can be enlarged or reduced between 50% and 200% in 1% increments.
Pricing for the XE units ranges from #599 to #649 and the models join the higher performance WorkCentre XD series of printer/copiers announced earlier this month (see PC Week, 10 November).
