The IBM 4881 M26 is a Multifunction Printer (MFP) Option for IBM's successful Infoprint 1000 family of workgroup printers and multifunction solutions. This option adds scan, copy, fax, and e-mail capability and is customer-installable with your current Infoprint 1332, 1352, and 1372 workgroup printers.

The IBM 4881 M26 MPF Option Model 001 is a multifunction printer option with up to 23 Images-Per-Minute (IPM)(1) monochrome and up to 14 IPM color simplex scanning for Infoprint 1332, 1352, and 1372 printers, 50-sheet simplex Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), multiple destination support such as workstation, FTP, and e-mail attachment support, resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi, file format support including TIFF, JPG, PDF and Poscript level 2, scanner password protect, operator panel lock, scan once print many, reduction and enlargement capabilities, duplex output capability, 33.6 Kbps fax modem, and language support.

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

Multifunction Printer (MFP) Options for the popular Infoprint 1000 family of workgroup printers offer performance enhancements. These MFP Options will complement the Infoprint 1000 workgroup printers and include the capability to:

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

These multifunction options offer additional capability for the Infoprint 1000 family of workgroup printers.

M26 MFP Option

This option provides multifunction capability for the Infoprint 1332, 1352, and 1372 printers. The printer must have the following:

  • One network slot available
  • At least 32 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 (for example; collate or high resolution scan).
  • Network access to SMTP e-mail gateway server for e-mail function -- Network access must be done via the included 10/100BaseTX Ethernet network print server card.
  • 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 is required. Furniture may restrict or preclude some input or output options due to physical limitations.

The scanner/ADF unit and a MarkNet N2601e 10/100BaseTX Ethernet network print server card are included in the M26 Option. The print server also contains an integrated fax modem and IEEE 1394 connection for scanner communications.

The print server installs in the printer and uses one expansion slot. This print server offers the same Ethernet connection support as the printer's 10/100BaseTX Ethernet print server card (Refer to Printer Sales Manual for connection support.) The print server's resident Web page allows a browser to remotely view and manage the MFP Option.

The M26 does not support the decryption option available on the printers.

A 23 IPM monochrome at 75 dpi text, 14 IPM color at 75 dpi mixed (letter/A4 size media) flatbed scanner with up to 50-sheet duplex single pass Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and operator panel

Scan function includes:

  • Multiple destination support such as workstation, FTP, e-mail attachment, and Web site
