Epson Australia MD Craig Heckenberg said, “The way we live and work has truly changed, and not just in the short-term. As people adapt to this new reality, it’s important to have technology tools that not only ease the transition, but enable productivity, efficiency and help generate revenue. EcoTank Pro printers ensure small office, home office and business professionals can take full advantage of the benefits cartridge-free printers provide. They are also much better for the environment than laser printers.”

The new EcoTank Pro ET-5150 and EcoTank Pro ET-5170 augment the existing line of EcoTank Pro models, providing a compact, entry-level, affordable solution to users that require high-volume printing.

Pricing, Availability and Support
The EcoTank Pro ET-5150 (RRP AUD$639.00) and EcoTank Pro ET-5170 (RRP AUD$649.00) are now available now at www.epson.com.au and all good Epson retailers and resellers.

1) Yields based on the ISO/IEC 24712 pattern with Epson’s methodology. Actual ink yields will vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colour. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colours must be available for printing.
2) Calculation derived by comparing the Cost Per Page (CPP) colour combination of Epson T542 replacement ink bottle at $0.016 with a colour combination of Brother TN-253/TN-257 replacement toner cartridges at $0.276 as of March 2021. CPP = cost per consumable ÷ number of printable pages..
3) First-Print-Out-Time (FPOT) 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 the 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.
4) Most features require an Internet connection to the printer, as well as an Internet and/or email-enabled device. See www.epson.com.au/connect for a list of Epson Connect enabled printers and compatible devices and apps.
5) Wi-Fi CERTIFIED, level of performance subject to the range of the router being used. Wi-Fi Direct may require printer software account. For a list of supported cloud supported services, visit www.epson.com.au/connect.
