Konica Minolta photocopiers can be operated without using the touch screens
In light of the current developments with COVID-19, it is important to keep personal contacts to a minimum and to reduce risks of infection. Konica Minolta therefore emphasises that the majority of its multifunctional photocopiers – including all devices from the bizhub i-Series – can be operated remotely. It is hence possible to operate these devices, which have been designed to be used by multiple employees, without the user ever having to even touch the control panel.
This can be done, for example, by using computers, mobile phones or tablets. This works on the principle of the multifunctional control panel being displayed on a mobile telephone or on a classic computer monitor via a web interface. Users can then work with the panel as if they were standing right next to it. If users have not yet been utilising this function, they can easily activate it directly in the settings of their device.
A further way of operating the equipment is with touch styluses, which can easily be disinfected. When cleaning the control panels and the entire devices, it is possible to use any available alcohol-based preparation designated for the given surface. It should always only be applied using a cloth and then wiped dry, however.
