Stay productive and on budget

Make every message – and dollar – count

Ideal for small workgroups and the home office, the P 311 produces a consistent stream of output at speeds up to 34 pages per minute (PPM). A high-yield print cartridge helps to maximize uptime and minimizes delays, hassles, and costs. Manage multiple projects at the same time with the impressive 350 MHz controller. Moving between tasks is simple with its intuitive keypad on the 4-line LCD panel display.

Staying productive has never been so simple

Print and copy up to 7,000 pages before you need to replace the all-in-one print cartridge. When it needs replacing, even novice users can replace it in moments. A full front-access design allows you to reload paper, check settings and more with ease.

Share information anywhere, securely

You and your team will be able to communicate information and data securely wherever you are working. For remote printing, download the RICOH Smart Device Connector app to your Android mobile device and pair it with the P 311 via the Near Field Communication (NFC) tag, or print using Mopria or AirPrint®. Locked print keeps sensitive information secured until you authenticate on the device and pick up your documents.

Optimize your space with wireless connectivity

You don’t need a lot of space to setup and connect the P 311. With USB WiFi® 2.4GHz wireless connectivity, you can put the printer on desktops, counters or even in cabinets. The automatic print driver tool simplifies setup and download of drivers for Windows®, Mac® or Linux operating systems.

Expand your impact, not your budget

ENERGY STAR® certified, the P 311 meets EPEAT® Silver criteria*, offering a low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value of 0.410 kWH/week. Default duplex printing helps to reduce operating costs even more while Sleep Mode automatically powers down the device when idle.
*EPEAT Silver rating is applicable only in the USA.
