MELVILLE, N.Y., March 10, 2014 – Building on the success of the popular imageRUNNER ADVANCE lineup, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced two new models to this diverse series. The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240A and the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5235A models improve on the current imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240/C5235 models by offering significantly faster scan speeds through single pass duplex scanning.
Similar to the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5255/C5250, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240A/C5235A devices now include a single pass duplexing document feeder that scans two sides of an original in a single pass. These devices are equipped to scan at a rate of up to 120 impressions-per- minute (ipm) - a significant upgrade compared to the up to 51 ipm offered by their predecessors. Increased scanning speeds improve the productivity of these devices and create greater consistency across the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5200 series.
"At Canon, we're constantly looking to innovate and deliver solutions that help our customers meet the often challenging demands of their office workflows," said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "By enhancing the scanning functionality on these imageRUNNER ADVANCE models, so many more tasks can now be completed with greater efficiency and productivity."
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240A model also delivers printing speeds of up to 40 pages-per-minute (ppm) in black-and-white and up to 35 ppm in color, while the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5235A device produces up to 35 ppm in black-and-white and up to 30 ppm in color - making these printers ideal for office environments with high scanning and printing volumes.
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240A and C5235A models are now available through Canon authorized dealers at manufacturer's suggested retail prices of $13,020 and $11,970, respectively.
