The Canon imageRUNNER LBP5280 is a net-new addition to the Canon imageRUNNER LBP Series, handling legal-size paper and is perfect for users needing desktop color printing. With a paper capacity of up to 550 sheets, the model outputs high-quality color documents at up to 21 pages-per-minute (ppm). Generous standard features include 2400 (equivalent) x 600 dpi, Adobe PostScript 3, PCL5c/6, Canon’s UFR II print solution, 768MB of internal memory, duplex printing and USB Direct print. Options include a 250 sheet cassette, an 8GB SD Card, and a Barcode Print Kit for easy printing of barcode fonts in support of enterprise resource planning tools and other barcode-centric processes.
The Canon imageRUNNER LBP3480 model — which succeeds imageRUNNER LBP3470 — also supports up to legal-size media and is an ideal choice for customers needing a compact black and white printer. With a paper capacity of up to 800 sheets, the model outputs crisp monochrome documents at up to 35 ppm at up to 2400 (equivalent) x 600 dpi. Standard features mirror the Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 with Adobe PostScript 3, PCL5c/6, Canon’s UFR II print solution, 768MB of internal memory, duplex printing, and USB Direct print. Options include a 500 sheet cassette, an 8GB SD Card, and a Barcode Print Kit for easy printing of barcode fonts in support of enterprise resource planning tools and other barcode-centric processes.
The Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and the imageRUNNER LBP348 fully supports imageWARE Remote and Canon’s innovative Content Delivery System. imageWARE Remote, Canon’s eMaintenance solution, allows Canon Authorized Dealers to proactively and securely monitor usage, relay status, and even report errors, saving customers valuable time and resources. The Content Delivery System allows service providers to deliver remote firmware and software updates to customers with limited or no business interruption. The standard DeviceLink integration can also automatically route inbound faxes from an imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFP to the new printer models, making receiving faxes both more convenient and secure, while cutting costs by reducing the number of fax lines an organization needs. The combination of these management and collaboration tools, combined with MEAP technology, brings advanced MFP solutions and features to a small-format desktop printer.
Ease of Use and Convenience
To increase ease of use and simplify operation for general users, the two new printers are equipped with a 5-line LCD. The panel features on-screen navigation with a scrolling display to facilitate device use as well as animations to help guide operations. The aforementioned imageWARE Remote, CDS, and Device Link streamline usage for administrators and users alike. For added convenience, both models include popular features from the imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs lineup including: USB Direct Print, allowing users to print documents from a USB drive without a computer; and Encrypted Secured Print, enabled with the optional SD Card. The optional SD card also enables Mail Box storage for frequently used jobs and Email Printing, allowing a user to simply send an email to the printer to print the message and supported attached files.
