Energy Efficient Printers The LaserMiser XIO is a hardware accessory that reduces the yearly energy consumption of networked laser printers by as much as 93 percent, while extending their usable lifetime. The product is specifically designed for Hewlett-Packard LaserJet II, IID, III, or IIID printers that connect directly to a network through a card installed inside the printer. LaserMiser XIO saves energy by keeping the networked printer's AC power turned off except when needed. The network interface remains powered and ready while the printer's power is off, so network users still see the printer as online and available for use. When a job arrives, LaserMiser re-powers the printer and forwards the job, which prints with only a brief delay in the output of the first page.
