Conserving energy not only helps the environment, it makes sense for your business too. Canon works to reduce the carbon footprint of its products by proactively developing technologies that reduce power consumption.
Advanced Color RAPID Fusing uses a ceramic heater to apply heat onto a thin fixing sleeve, allowing for instantaneous heat transfer to the fixing point. This reduces the amount of heat and energy needed to print documents.
The IH (Induction Heating) Fixing System features a fixing roller made from a thin-walled metal pipe with a thin fluororesin mold-release layer coating. This allows high-frequency current to move through the coil into the roller much more efficiently, resulting in lower overall energy use.
Both pO (Precise Output) and pQ (Pure Quality) toners have enhanced melting characteristics that enable them to fuse quickly at low heat. A lower temperature means lower energy consumption and reduced cost for similar tasks.
Thanks to white LED arrays, imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices can reduce scanning energy consumption by up to 75%. These arrays also last longer and operate with less heat. In addition, Color Image Readers use a proprietary image sensor reduces energy consumption by up to 50% compared with previous systems.
imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices now consume as little as 1W* of electricity in Sleep Mode, while still waking up quickly when needed. For offices where machines often remain idle, this feature can result in substantial savings.
