The Brother™ DCP-L2540DW is a fast, reliable monochrome digital copier designed squarely with the Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) user in mind. Its compact, desk-friendly size is ideal for smaller offices where working space is at a premium, and it prints and copies sharp, professional black and white pages at up to 2400 x 600dpi resolution. It offers the added benefits of business-friendly scanning from the scan glass or automatic document feeder, so it’s ideal for the small office that has the need to duplicate and digitize documents. Thanks to its fast print speed of up to 30ppm, and automatic duplex printing, it’s ideal for printing business documents including multi-page reports, spreadsheets, invoices, and more.

The DCP-L2540DW offers multiple connectivity options, plus a two-line LCD Display.
Brother designed the DCP-L2540DW to make it easy to connect to a wireless network using the wireless assistant that walks you through set up. You don’t need a USB cable, and you won’t even need to know your wireless network password. Share the machine with others on a wireless network using 802.11 b/g/n or wired network via Ethernet, or connect to a single computer using a USB cable via the Hi-Speed USB port. It’s equally easy to navigate menus and change settings using the controls and two-line LCD Display.

Easily digitize and share documents with advanced scanning capabilities.
The DCP-L2540DW features a built-in document glass for high-quality copying and color scanning. It allows users to scan documents to a file, image, optical character recognition (OCR), email, and Microsoft® SharePoint®. Plus the up to 35-sheet capacity automatic document feeder is ideal for unattended copying, and scanning.

Print wirelessly from your mobile device3 using AirPrint™, Wi-Fi Direct®, and more.
The DCP-L2540DW gives you a full menu of choices for connecting to Apple®, Android™, Kindle Fire™, Windows® Phone, or Blackberry mobile devices via: AirPrint™, Google Cloud Print™, Brother™ iPrint & Scan, Cortado Workplace and also Wi-Fi Direct®, which allows you to print wirelessly from a computer or mobile device without the need for a router.

Budget-friendly acquisition price and low-cost printing.
The DCP-L2540DW is priced attractively for SOHO users who are keeping a close eye on their budgets. Users can also enjoy a reduced cost per page and lower total cost of ownership by using high-yield 2,600-page replacement toner cartridges (TN-660, sold separately), and automatic duplex printing is a great way to help reduce paper consumption. The DCP-L2540DW is ENERGY STAR® Qualified and offers a Toner Save mode to reduce toner use when you are printing less critical business documents as well as N-in-1 printing to help reduce paper and toner usage by combining multiple pages onto one sheet of paper.
Flexible paper handling for busy SOHO environments.

The DCP-L2540DW is ideal for small offices and home offices, thanks to its adjustable, 250-sheet capacity paper tray that handles letter or legal size paper and a manual feed slot with a straight through paper path that ensures jobs printed on letterhead and envelopes always look their best.
