Benefits of EcoTank

Low running costs

Print more for less

Whether you count by the page or over the life of the printer, EcoTank running costs are low.

Outstanding cost efficiency

A key benefit of the EcoTank monochrome series is outstanding cost efficiency, and the low Cost Per Page (CPP) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) it offers.

What are running costs?

Running costs include the cost of consumables such as ink, toner and parts that require regular replacement over the course of a printer's service life.

High print quality

Look your best

Epson pigment ink and advanced image processing ensure you make a good impression.

High water resistance

EcoTank Pro series pigment ink is not soluble in water, and will not smudge or bleed when splashed with water.

High-quality barcode printing

When Barcode mode is activated, the EcoTank Pro series can automatically detect barcodes during image processing and control the size of ink droplets to ensure clear printed output that barcode readers can recognise quickly and scan accurately.

High resistance to light and ozone

EcoTank Pro series pigment ink is lightfast and resists fading when exposed to ozone, making it ideal for both standard office documents and documents intended for archival storage.

Epson EcoTank Mono Edge Enhancement

Variable-sized droplet technology

Epson Variable-Sized Droplet TechnologyThe clarity of pigment ink printing is further enhanced by Epson's exclusive Variable-Sized Droplet Technology (VSDT), which precisely controls the volume of ink contained in each ejected droplet, and by advanced meniscus control, which ensures that droplets are perfectly spherical and land with high positional accuracy. The result is sharp, clear text and rich, virtually grain-free images.

Durabilty and reliability

Durable printhead life

Micro Piezo printheads are not subjected to any heat, the part of the head that is subjected to pressure is constructed from a highly durable ceramic material.

High productivity

Print more with less hassle

The EcoTank Pro series keeps you productive with features for greater convenience and reduced user intervention.

Outstanding durability

The EcoTank Pro series can be more productive because its high-capacity ink tank system reduces the need for frequent consumables replacement. Generally, most laser printer toner cartridges in the same class can print 1,000~2,000 pages, but EcoTank Pro series ink bottles contain enough ink to print up to 6,000 pages*.

Easy ink refilling

Epson EcoTank Mono easy-refill ink tank system

The EcoTank Pro series features an easy-refill ink tank system with a keyed bottle spout and tank inlet design that reduces the chance of accidental spillage. Refilling is simple and there's no need to squeeze the bottle. Just insert the spout into the inlet — the ink flow will stop automatically when the tank is full.

Fast first-page printing

Unlike laser printers which must preheat their fusing roller and process an entire page, the EcoTank Pro series do not require any preheating.

This gives EcoTank a significant advantage in two key ISO-defined metrics of printing speed: First Print Out Time (FPOT) and First Set Out Time (FSOT).

Fast printing

First Print Out Time is not the only measure in which the EcoTank Pro series excels. Thanks to its overall speed and efficiency, it can consistently deliver the performance that busy offices need.

Wireless and remote printing1

Print from anywhere, anytime

EcoTank Pro series printers support wireless printing and can be shared over the internet and local networks.

Wi-Fi® printing

EcoTank supports Wi-Fi printing, enabling users to print wirelessly from any device connected to the network. Because it eliminates the need for USB cabling, Wi-Fi is often used as the primary means of printer connectivity in homes and offices equipped with a wireless network.

Wi-Fi Direct® printing

Epson Wi-Fi Direct printing EcoTank also supports Wi-Fi Direct printing, which enables devices such as laptop computers, tablets, and smartphones to connect directly to the printer without joining a Wi-Fi network — no router (wireless access point) or internet connection is required.1

  1. Measurement method: ISO/IEC17629 Office Category Test. Paper size: A4. A set of Microsoft® Word, Microsoft® Excel®, and PDF files (each set containing 4 pages) is continuously printed. Measurement is based on the average time for the first of four single-sided prints to exit the printer. Measurement starts when the print button is pressed and ends when the first page of the set exits.
  2. Measurement method: ISO/IEC24734 Office Category Test. Paper size: A4/Letter A set of Microsoft® Word, Microsoft® Excel®, and PDF files (each set containing 4 pages) is continuously printed. Measurement is based on the time required to print the smallest number of sets (excluding the first set) after at least 30 seconds have passed since the first set was printed.
