IBM Infoprint 4895-001 M32 MFP


Looking for Infoprint 4895-001 Parts?
The IBM 4895 is the M32 Multifunction Printer (MFP) Option.

The IBM 4895 M32 Multifunction Printer (MFP) Option Model 001 includes a scanner with up to 34 pages-per-minute (PPM)(1) monochrome and up to 19 PPM(1) color that works with the IBM Infoprint Color 1228 or 1357 printer. This option adds scan, copy, fax, and e-mail capability and is customer-installable with your printer.

Note: (1) Exact scan speed varies depending on the document attributes, system configuration, and user-selected settings

The IBM M32 Multifunction Printer (MFP) Option works with the Infoprint Color 1357 printer or Infoprint Color 1228 printer to provide user-friendly functions that complement the printer. The M32 provides the capability to:

  • Scan once and print many
  • Perform electronic routing
  • Fax and e-mail scanned documents
  • Use as walk-up fax or fax from workstation

The IBM M32 MFP Option provides multifunction capability for the Infoprint Color 1357 workgroup printer or Infoprint Color 1228 printer. The printer must have the following:

Infoprint Color 1357 network model printer or Infoprint Color 1228 printer -- Other model printers with internal or external network interfaces are not compatible. A network printer minimum code version applies.

At least 256 MB of memory -- Additional memory or hard drive features can increase performance or capabilities for copy, fax, scan, or print functions depending on the number of pages, page complexity, and operations selected (such as collate or high resolution scan).

Network access to simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP) e-mail gateway server for e-mail function -- Network access must be done via the printer's built in 10/100BaseTX Ethernet network print server.

An active analog telephone line or network access to a fax server is required for the fax function.

A customer-provided table, MFP shelf feature, or MFP furniture feature may be required. Furniture may restrict or preclude some input or output options due to physical limitations.

The printer's resident Web page allows a browser to remotely view and manage the MFP Option.
