Each C831 model boasts highly competitive print speeds and best-in-class paper handling. It delivers clear, sharp print-outs of speeds up to 35 pages per minute for color and monochrome letter sized documents, and 20 pages per minute for tabloid sized documents3.

The C831 also provides high definition color printing technology that is ideal for a variety of media from heavy card stock to polyester film to 52 inch banners, and includes an advanced control system that checks for alignment, registration and color balance. Users can also take advantage of larger paper capacity with two additional trays for a maximum of 1,460 sheets, and a multi-purpose tray which handles envelopes and custom sizes. All features and functionality are designed to optimize performance for small workgroups.

Each model includes a LCD display, intuitive menu system, and an alphanumeric keypad. The keypad enables quick retrieval of password-protected documents with secure print features that encrypt job data, store it on the optional SD Memory Card, and purge it when the job is printed. In addition, the C831 Series is compatible with OKI Print Job Accounting software which enables administrators to track printed output costs for bill-back to individual user and groups, and can also be used to prohibit unauthorized printing.
