Kyocera FS-3830N


The Kyocera FS-3830N combines good-looking text with a 35-page-per-minute engine.

Excellent text output quality; claimed cost per page is 0.495 cents.

Installation can be confusing.

Product Specifications

Powerful enough to satisfy even the most demanding workgroup: the FS-3830N delivers best-in-class performance plus unbeatable cost-effectiveness, making it the ideal print solution for large workgroups. With its speed (33ppm), network connectivity and generous 96MB RAM, the FS-3830N has the powerful standard features you need to handle complex tasks with ease. Add to that its great range of paper-handling options and digital print features and your workgroup has instant access to economical and time-saving functions such as electronic forms and electronic carbon copy. And thanks to Kyocera Mita's industry-leading ECOSYS technology, you enjoy the lowest cost per page in the class. ECOSYS technology is based on extremely durable components. The drum, developer and fuser of the FS-3830N are designed for 300,000 pages. Due to the fact that toner is the only consumable required, Kyocera printers operate with the lowest cost per page in their class, and they are particularly environmentally friendly. Thanks to their numerous system, paper options and modularity, all Kyocera printers can expand to meet further requirements. The FS-3830N delivers outstanding network connectivity and problem-free system administration. Kyocera Mita's single platform technology means that the same driver can be used for every KM print device in the network: from single-user desktop printers to high-end multifunctional systems. Only Kyocera Mita offers this effortless combination of IT sophistication and high-performance paper handling expertise. With the Kyocera Mita page design and control language PRESCRIBE IIe, even complex graphics, logos and forms (even multipart forms) can be created independently of the system and saved and updated in the printer. Consequently, integration into print files no longer applies. They are only accessed as required and therefore relieve the load on the network. The 80 scalable high-quality fonts provide high flexibility for all applications. A total of 45 integrated barcodes including hash totals are computed automatically by the printer and printed in the desired size, alignment and position. The settings of all printers on the network can be checked visually and amended from any Windows PC. KM-NET for Client for easy setup and check of the printer status via parallel, USB or network including optional printer hard disk/Microdrive. KM-Net Viewer is an advanced network management software tool using the standardized protocol SNMP, which incorporates administration of the optional printer hard disk/Microdrive.
