As this is not a multifunctional printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.

The Intec CS5600 features a touch screen panel for printing and adjusting settings with ease and performing other useful tasks.


The CS5600 provides efficient full colour printing, that's more than suitable for general business uses, with a print resolution of 1200 x 1200 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.

Offering A4 print speeds of up to 50 pages per minute and A3 speeds of up to 28 pages per minute, you can be sure of efficient printing for large print jobs. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 8 seconds meaning short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.

With a 1200MHz processor and 2,000 Mb of RAM, this printer can handle large images and other files with quickly and efficiently.
