Overview

IBM is updating its comprehensive printer family with the introduction of the Infoprint® 1585 (machine type 4539). The Infoprint 1585 is a 50 page per minute (ppm)1 letter/A4 and 28 ppm1 for 11 x 17 in/A3 monochrome laser printer that supports wide format printing, optional two-sided printing, a quick first-page-out time as fast as 7 seconds, and extensive input and output options to enable scalable solutions with reduced costs and increased productivity.

Printing complex jobs is made easier with the powerful 625 MHz processor, 256 MB of standard memory, and an optional hard-drive upgrade. Produce great-looking documents with industry-leading print quality and achieve professional results with 2400IQ print resolution and true 1200 by 1200 dpi at full speed.

The Infoprint 1585 supports a variety of media types and sizes for user flexibility so you can produce complex documents in-house, to save time and cut costs. Paper handling options — such as duplex, high-capacity input, and a finisher — can handle a wide variety of input and output needs. Standard offset stacking capabilities allow for print job separation, and an optional high-capacity finisher on the Infoprint 1585 allows you to take advantage of multi-position stapling and hole punching for optimal productivity.

The operator panel is a four-line 160 x 64 APA (all points addressable) backlit gray scale display, supporting four lines with 20 characters per line. This provides easy navigation and usability is improved with simple to use, large, bold icons on the buttons. Reliability and serviceability are enhanced with "show me" screens and "tell me more" screens.

The Infoprint 1585 can adapt easily to existing infrastructures with the optional 802.11 Wireless feature. This new printer will use the optional wireless feature and reduce installation cost by avoiding the expense of new Ethernet cabling. Add these new printers to handle peak workloads, without waiting for IT to reconfigure cables. Preserve architecture or work around areas that are difficult or impossible to cable.

Print PDF documents quickly and easily. Once a flash memory device (thumb drive) is inserted in the front of the printer, a list of PDF files and directories is displayed. Navigational arrows are used to traverse the list/directory tree. The user can easily select the file, choose the number of copies to be printed, and submit the file for printing. The files are read and printed — no writing to the printer.

The Infoprint 1585 is provided with printer management utilities. MarkVision Professional is a cross-platform print management solution that enables IT administrators to proactively monitor and manage network devices in an enterprise environment via a Web browser.

MarkVision Messenger enhances administrators' quality for service and improves end-user productivity and satisfaction by providing real-time notification of printer conditions and facilitates automated responses to these conditions before they become critical and disruptive to user productivity.

This printer provides several standard and optional features that improve or enhance the security of the device.

Using the latest version of MarkVision Professional, administrators can configure and manage devices by using authenticated and encrypted network communications. Using Confidential Print, a user may assign a PIN to a print job, and have the printer hold that job until the user physically arrives and enters the correct PIN. This will prevent another user from taking the printed output from the output bin.

Description

The Infoprint 1585 is a monochrome printer that supports up to A3/Ledger-size media at up to 50 pages per minute (ppm) with a time to first page out as fast as 7 seconds. It comes in a network model only. The printer comes standard with 256 MB of memory, a 10/100BaseTX Ethernet port, two 500-sheet drawers, and a 100-sheet multi-purpose feeder. Standard input capacity is 1100 sheets and standard output capacity is 500 sheets. The 1585 has a maximum input capacity of 5100 sheets and a maximum output capacity of 3800 sheets.

High-performance controller

The Infoprint 1585 controller features a 625 MHz Freescale processor. It comes with PostScript 3 and PCL 6 emulation, and a PPDS migration tool.

  • Memory

    The controller has one slot for memory DIMMs, two slots for flash memory cards or application solution cards, and one slot for internal network adapters, local adapters, or hard drives.

    The printer comes with 256 MB of memory soldered onboard and can support a maximum of 768 MB of memory. An optional 20+ GB hard disk with adapter feature is available.

    Optional flash memory up to 64 MB is supported using the optional flash memory cards. Flash memory cards can be installed in either application solution slot but the controller supports only one flash memory card.

  • Printer system attachment interfaces

    The printer comes with an IEEE 1284 Parallel interface with a type B connector, a Universal Serial Bus (USB), and a 10/100BaseTX interface as standard. The standard Fast Ethernet interface does not take up the network adapter slot. Optional wireless Ethernet is supported through the wired Ethernet port.

Usage rates

The maximum monthly usage is 300,000 impressions. IBM does not recommend printing to the monthly maximum on a consistent basis.

Print quality

The resolutions of the Infoprint 1585 are:

  • 1200 x 1200 dpi
  • 2400 Image Quality (default)
  • 600 x 600 dpi
  • 300 x 300 dpi

The Toner Darkness setting offers 10 user-selectable settings to balance print darkness and toner savings. The higher the setting, the darker the print. Within the range of print darkness settings, up to 35% toner savings can be realized. The factory default setting is 8. The Toner Darkness setting is available through the operator panel under the Print Quality menu and also accessible from the print driver.

The following settings are available to enhance print quality:

Approximate yield has been established with an average coverage of 5%. An "impression" is defined as one printed side of a sheet. A duplex sheet would consist of two impressions.

The approximate average yields are not a warranty or guarantee of minimum life, and are provided to assist in initial supplies planning. Actual usage should be used to establish the supply's life in the end user's application. Many factors (for example, print coverage per page, machine settings, paper type and size, and environmental conditions) can affect supply life.

Maintenance supplies: The following maintenance supplies are available for Infoprint 1585:
