Sending at a Specific Time (Send Later)

Using this function, you can instruct the machine to delay transmission of your fax document until a specified later time.

This allows you to take advantage of off-peak telephone charges without having to be by the machine at the time.


  • If the machine is switched off for about one hour, all fax documents stored in memory are lost. If documents are lost for this reason, a Power Failure Report is automatically printed when the operation switch is turned on. Use this report to check the list of lost documents. See “Turning Off the Main Power / In the Event of Power Failure”, Troubleshooting.

  • This function is unavailable with Immediate Transmission. Use Memory Transmission.
