Canon USA announced the launch on March 10 of two new A3 multifunctions: the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240A and the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5235A. These two replace the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240 and C5235. These new MFPs have a double scan head, which allows a double-sided document to be scanned on both sides in a single pass - and thus at a higher speed than their predecessors. The scan speed for the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240A / C5235A can be up to 120 ipm, compared to just 51 imp for the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240 and C5235.
The other characteristics of the new machines are similar to those of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240 and C5235. The respective print speeds of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5240A and C5235A are 40 ppm (monochrome) / 35 ppm (color) for the former, and 35/30 ppm for the latter.
Worth noting that the single-pass scan, presented as an option on the iR Advance C5235i and C5240i in Europe, was not available in North America on the equivalent machines.
These new color A3 MFPs are available now in North America.
