Where to buy

The new BP50 colour range from Sharp

Designed to fit today’s diverse workstyles, the new BP50 series of color document systems enable workers to collaborate and share information seamlessly and securely throughout their office environment. Enhanced cloud services such as Microsoft Teams makes it easy to streamline communication and boost productivity with hybrid workers.

Unified Cloud Connection (Optional)

You only need to sign in once to connect to multiple cloud services, such as Microsoft Teams, from the MFP. Applications can also be easily downloaded from the cloud. 

10.1 Inch Full-Flat Touchscreen

With a variety of functions accessible via simple, intuitive icons, MFP operation is smooth and easy. The control panel shows the state of your MFP, displaying current operation and notifications for things like paper, toner, and maintenance.

Solid Security

The MFP has multiple levels of security to keep the device—and your precious data—secure. When booting up, the MFP checks for any anomalies in the BIOS firmware. If it finds a problem, it aborts the
startup. If there are other firmware-related issues, the MFP will attempt recovery to protect the system.

High Performance RSPF

The RSPF (reversing single pass feeder) efficiently feeds in either one- or two-sided originals—in batches of up to 100 sheets. With scanning speeds of up to 80 opm (one-sided), the MFP can complete large jobs with ease and efficiency.

Link Mobile Devices

Mobile devices can connect directly to the MFP for printing or downloading scanned data. The MFP can also be equipped with AirPrint and the Sharp Print Service Plugin. It’s a smoother way to get the job done.

Smart Scanning

Simply tap the Auto Set button and the MFP will automatically determine the optimal resolution, gradation, and compression rate for your scan jobs.

Multiple Finishing Options

The MFP meets all common office needs with a variety of finishing options. Its folding unit handles various types of folds without taking up much space.

Eco Friendly Design

This MFP achieves superb energy efficiency. For example, the use of low-temperature-fusing toner results in vastly reduced energy consumption for the MFP.

High Productivity

The MFP delivers a fast output of 65 ppm*3. And if toner runs out during a print job, the MFP continues printing your documents while you change the toner cartridge. Your productivity won’t miss a beat.

Remote Firmware Updates

The MFP’s firmware can be remotely updated—without the need for service operation—via a firmware update service. That way you’re always using the latest system for your MFP.

All Sharp MFPs are Papercut compatible for cost saving and waste reduction.

Environmentally friendly printing

Papercut is a cost effective, secure print management solution that enables businesses to take control of paper and reduce print waste.

It's easy to user interface coupled with the security features means you can print with peace of mind - and save the planet at the same time.
