Ricoh P 501 TL /IM 430Fb TL

Ricoh USA, Inc., is pleased to introduce our new Healthcare Optimized A4 B/W P 501 TL Printer and IM 430Fb TL MFP. These new models each offer a built-in 500-sheet locking/label-support paper tray controlled by security firmware designed to meet the specialized media security requirements of healthcare environments. Optional 250-sheet and 500-sheet locking/label-support Paper Feed Units (PFUs) are also available to increase the secure media capacity.


The P 501 TL and SP IM 430Fb TL offer the same features as the P 501 and IM 430Fb – workflow capabilities, high reliability, eco-friendly features, and low total cost of ownership. The key differentiator is the built-in 500-sheet locking/label-support paper tray and enhanced security firmware specifically developed for healthcare environments. These devices support the needs of small to mid-size workgroups generating an average of 3,000 - 10,000 pages each month.


The built-in locking paper tray is the ideal solution for user environments in which secure, controlled access to regulated or specialty media, such as pre-printed prescription forms, is critically important. In addition to the physical security of the locking paper tray, these models also incorporate enhanced security firmware to further ensure that the media in the locking tray(s) is digitally inaccessible in Print, Copy, Fax, and Document Server modes. Features of the enhanced firmware include:

In Print, Copy, and Fax Mode – Disables access to the Locking Tray for the Auto Tray Switching function. If standard and optional tray(s) are empty and the locking tray is set to the same size/type as the other trays, this setting prevents the device from printing the job using the media in the locking tray.

In Copy Mode – Prevents the ability to select the locking tray from the Operation Panel and Web Image Monitor


The P 501 TL and IM 430Fb TL are positioned for healthcare customers who are cost and space conscious; require advanced media security and/or device protection; and have print, fax, and scanning applications or workflows. The target environments for these A4 devices are hospital nurses’ stations (cramped dimensions with high traffic) where a single, consolidated device that provides physical and digital security of regulated media would free up valuable counter or floor space.
