Designed to protect your business assets and bring you peace of mind, Sharp’s industry-leading security solutions employ multiple levels of
security functions—both standard equipped and optional—covering a broad range of network and data security needs. The MX-5141N/
4141N safeguards sensitive data with powerful, enhanced security functions that eliminate the worry of unauthorised use and guarantee
greater protection for your conﬁdential information.
Secure Network Access
The IP/MAC address ﬁltering function provides highly secure
operation by restricting access to the MFPs on your ofﬁce network.
Only PCs that have either their IP address or MAC (media access
control) address registered are allowed to use the MFPs.
Attempted access from an
unknown IP or MAC address
will be denied, preventing
unauthorised use. The
supports the IEEE 802.1X
standard for port-based
network access control,
which blocks all access from
Data Encryption and Overwriting
Digital copier/printers and MFPs retain large amounts of data
generated from copy/print/scan/fax jobs in internal storage. To
safeguard conﬁdential data from unauthorised access,
standard-equipped security features on the MX-5141N/4141N
automatically encrypt job data
prior to saving it to internal
storage. Once a job is ﬁnished,
that encrypted data is erased via
up to seven automatic overwrites.
Protection of administrator/ﬁle/
folder passwords brings further
peace of mind.
Note: Contact a Sharp customer
representative for details on activating
these security functions.
The MX-5141N/4141N prevents unauthorised use by requiring
passwords for machine access. This safeguarded solution can
register up to 1,000 users in three access levels as Administrator,
User, or Guest and can designate to which function user
authentication applies. The MX-5141N/4141N can, for example,
be set to allow B/W copying by all users while restricting colour
copying to designated users. And the MX-5141N/4141N works
with an external Active Directory server to extend user
authentication to multiple MFPs and a greater number of users.
Scan to Me Function
Scan to Me lets a logged-in authorised user send scanned data to
his/her own e-mail address simply by pressing the start button. This
eliminates the need to manually enter or select the address, thereby
preventing documents from being sent to the wrong address.
Encrypted PDF with Password Protection
To prevent unauthorised viewing of conﬁdential data, the
MX-5141N/4141N enables scanned PDF data to be password
protected and encrypted for transmission over the network. After
transmission, viewers can gain access to the encrypted PDF only
after re-entering the password.
Document Control Function
Document Control prevents unauthorised copying, scanning,
faxing, and ﬁling of conﬁdential documents by embedding copy
prevention data onto a document. When that data is detected,
any unauthorised attempts to copy will be cancelled or will result
in only blank-page output.
Note: Requires optional Data Security Kit. May not work for certain types of
documents or paper.
The MX-5141N/4141N’s initialisation function allows conﬁdential
information to be erased. Initialising an MFP when it’s time to
replace it prevents important resources, such as customer
information and intellectual property, from leaking out and
provides considerable peace of mind.
SSL and IPsec Data Encryption
To ensure an extremely high level of network security, the
MX-5141N/4141N employs SSL (secure sockets layer) and IPsec
data encryption technologies. SSL encryption prevents data
leakage through the network when printing via IPP, browsing
secure Web pages (HTTPS), or communicating via e-mail (SMTP
and POP3) or FTP (FTPS). IPsec encrypts and authenticates trafﬁc
between speciﬁed parties.
Hidden Pattern Copy/Print
With this function, a watermark, such as “Conﬁdential” or “Not
for Copy,” can be embedded onto a document. If that document
is copied, the watermark will appear, alerting the user not to
Tracking Information Print
This function prints the MFP user’s name, the date, the MFP’s serial
number, job ID, and other speciﬁcs on printouts, making it
possible to track documents and
prevent data theft.
(Screen in Enlarge Display mode)
The MX-5141N/4141N can be monitored remotely through a Web
browser, letting administrators handle tasks before they become
problems. And when action or maintenance is required, the
E-Mail Status and Alert function notiﬁes administrators via
timely e-mail alerts.
The Remote Operation function lets you display the MFP’s main
control panel on your PC screen, allowing you to operate every
major function directly from your desktop.* This function also
enables the administrator to guide an MFP user through necessary
procedures and allows remote MFP operation from a wheelchair.
* Requires VNC application.
Network Utility Software
Sharp Remote Device Manager* (SRDM) gives administrators
centralised control of their networked MFPs through a standard
Web browser, making device cloning and other operations easier
and more accessible.

Web-Based System Settings
Administrators can manage every important setting—including
user access and security as well as other controls and
conﬁgurations—through a standard Web browser right from their
MFP operation has never been so intuitive, so easy. The MX-5141N/4141N’s control panel features a wide, clear, WSVGA-resolution LCD
touchscreen. Simple gestures—ﬂick, drag, tap, and more—performed on the screen bring easy control of every document, function, and setting.
And dual-touch pinch and spread gestures enable smooth Web browsing and effortless shrinking/enlarging of Advanced Preview images. For
strain-free viewing, the MX-5141N/4141N’s user interface employs a bold scalable font in sizes that vary in line with the content on display.
The Home screen can be customised for individual users by
programming their most frequently used functions and settings,
creating shortcut keys for
quick and easy access, and
using logos, icons, background
images, and other items
prepared by the user. The

The Advanced Preview function saves you time and effort by
displaying scanned images on the LCD for conﬁrmation and
editing. Page layout and document ﬁnishes such as stapling can be
checked before the documents are printed out. Previewed pages
can be easily rotated, put in a different order, and deleted via
tap-and-drag editing right on the LCD. You can even erase speciﬁc
parts of a previewed page and insert blank pages.
• The control panel can be tilted to
ﬁve different angles* for easy
viewing, even from a wheelchair.
* Number of tiltable angles depends on
type of optional ﬁnisher installed.
• Easy-grip handles allow the paper drawers to be grasped from
the top as well as the bottom for easy opening and closing.
Mode tabs at the top of the screen make it easy to change job
modes (copy, fax, document ﬁling, Sharp OSA, etc.).
The Action Panel appears on the right side of the touchscreen to
guide you through operational procedures. The MFP intuits what
actions to take next and the Action Panel displays shortcut keys
and messages pertaining to those actions.
A full-size retractable QWERTY
keyboard slides out from beneath
the control panel to make text
input fast and easy.

Innovative Sharp OSA technology allows you to interact with critical
business and network applications right from the LCD control panel,
offering a new realm of control and convenience. And since Sharp
OSA utilises industry-standard network protocols, the MX-5141N/
4141N can easily integrate with document management systems,
enterprise resource planning software, workﬂow applications, and
more. The latest version of Sharp OSA can reach beyond the
ﬁrewall, enabling extensive system construction and services over
the Internet. Sharp OSA brings beneﬁts such as reducing the costs
associated with system implementation and management, as well as
enabling data sharing across company branch ofﬁces or
subsidiaries—effectively enhancing total business efﬁciency.

• Eco Scan function saves energy by keeping the fusing system
shut down during jobs that don’t require the use of the fusing
system, such as Image Sending and Document Filing.
• Second-generation Mycrostoner-HG has a lower melting point
than conventional toner, allowing fusing to be carried out with
less energy. It also offers a signiﬁcantly lower consumption rate
than conventional toner.
• For further energy savings, energy-efﬁcient LED lamps are
employed in the scan unit in place
of conventional xenon lamps. A new
ASIC (application-speciﬁc integrated
circuit) also helps the MX-5141N/
4141N deliver excellent performance
and energy efﬁciency.
