Bringing colour into your office has never been simpler or more cost effective. Canon’s multifunctional imageRUNNER C1028i/C1028iF is surprisingly powerful for such a compact device, boasting speedy high quality A4 prints, a sizeable operation panel, and the latest in document security.

Productive and impressive

Print, copy, scan, send or fax* -it’s quick and simple with the multifunctional imageRUNNER C1028i/C1028iF. Colour and black and white printing is carried out at a swift 21ppm in colour and 28ppm in B&W** and at a resolution of 2,400 dpi x 600 dpi. A sturdy document feeder, plus a potential paper supply of 850 sheets, ensures sizeable print runs can be comfortably accommodated.

The iSend facility enables the imageRUNNER C1028i/C1028iF to be a great communicating aid – instantly sending files to e-mail addresses, desktop, ftp server and file locations.

Small and simple

You might be surprised to find such heavyweight performance from such a compact device, measuring just 546mm x 527mm x 627mm (wxdxh). This philosophy applies to the way you work with PDFs too. Canon’s innovative Compact PDF function reduces files for quicker distribution, with minimal impact on quality.

A large 3.5 inch colour display with Easy-Scroll Wheel allows effortless access to all functions and the graphical menu enables speedy, straightforward operation.

Efficient and secure

The imageRUNNER C1028i/C1028iF incorporates Canon’s Auto Colour Sensing technology which intelligently detects which pages within a document contain colour, and which don’t, and then prints accordingly, helping to keep costs down and fix the price per page. There’s no need to worry about constant monitoring either as eMaintenance automatically reports any problems to service centres and Canon partners.

Canon’s optional uniFLOW Output manager provides a host of extra control facilities including Print Accounting, which allows you to monitor and account print jobs and Secure Printing, which holds print jobs until the user correctly identifies themselves at the device via the relevant security method e.g. card or password.

Considerate and capable

Switch on and the imageRUNNER C1028i/C1028iF is ready to go in just 60 seconds. And when not in use, a sleep mode is automatically invoked consuming a negligible 1.2 watts. Reduce paper consumption and improve your reports with the device’s double sided printing capabilities.
