4 Features of Energy Efficient Photocopiers

Hello, my name is Bobby. I run a restaurant which is located in Melbourne, Australia. When I opened the place, I was mostly worried about making sure I had ordered the right amount of food, that the staffing levels were correct and that the place was clean and tidy after the shift was over. However, what I didn't think about was the quality of the menus and posters that I needed to attract customers. Thankfully, my friend suggested that I contact a printing company that was able to print my designs to a very high standard. I was really impressed and my customers love them.

4 Features of Energy Efficient Photocopiers

It may be hard for an inexperienced person to the select the most energy-efficient photocopier from the nearly endless options that are available on the market. This article discusses some of the features that you should investigate as you go shopping for a photocopier with low energy consumption rates.

How Stand-By Mode Is Engaged

Different photocopiers are designed to go into the power-saving stand-by mode in different ways. For instance, one copier may go into this mode automatically once it remains unused for a defined duration. Other copiers can only go into this mode once someone enters a command or presses a button. The automatic way is better because it eliminates the need for someone to engage the stand-by mode manually.

Stand-By Consumption Rates

Pay attention to the energy consumption of different photocopiers when they are in stand-by mode. The best photocopiers should have a very low power rating when they aren't being used. For example, a photocopier that consumes 5 watts saves more energy than another that is rated at 20 watts during the stand-by mode.

Induction Heating

Further energy savings can also be realised if you invest in a photocopier that has induction heating technology. This technology makes it possible for the coils or elements of the copier to heat up only when someone is going to copy some documents. This is unlike other copiers whose coils or elements are constantly heated in anticipation of copying requirements while the photocopier is on. Induction heating therefore results in greater power savings.

Programmable Copiers

It may be hard for you to keep switching the photocopiers on and off depending on when those copiers are needed. Besides, most energy is usually consumed as the copier is starting up. A simple way to balance the need to turn the machine off while limiting how much energy it consumes when it restarts is by acquiring a programmable copier. Such copiers can be programmed to go into "sleep", "snooze" or "active" modes during pre-determined periods of the day. This will help you to use the copier fully during those windows when it is programmed to be awake so that the durations when it is inactive are maximised for their energy-savings.

Photocopier technology keeps advancing at a high rate. You should therefore keep in touch with your supplier of photocopiers so that you can replace your current copiers when better versions are availed on the market. The energy savings that you make when you upgrade your aging copiers will quickly add up.
