Sending and receiving faxes with the FAX-L290 is quick, easy and economical. Documents can be sent as fast as three seconds per page, while incoming faxes are printed at a fast six pages per minute. The dual access function lets faxes be scanned into the memory while the machine is transmitting or receiving. Outgoing faxes are scanned in before they are sent out and can even be stored in the memory to be sent at a later time. 24 one-touch dials and 100 speed dials save dialling time and Canon SURF technology virtually eliminates warm up time.
Whether it is plain text, photos, diagrams or a combination of these, UHQ (Ultra High Quality) scanning technology makes sure outgoing faxes come out clear on the receiving end. Canon laser technology can print incoming faxes at a 600 dpi resolution. The L290 can also be used to make up to 99 high quality, high resolution laser copies at one time.
A good memory
The FAX-L290 has a large 448-page memory. It keeps incoming faxes stored, should it run out of paper or toner. The memory holds incoming faxes until you can replace the empty toner cartridge. If you would like to make information available to others, the polling feature lets bulletins and information be pulled from your machine.
The password and direct mail prevention feature of this model ensure that only those users who are supposed to have access to the fax can send and receive information. This feature eliminates unwanted faxes.
An optional handset and cradle can be fitted to the L290, and there is also an interface for an answerphone too.
U paper path
To save on space, the L290 has a U paper path. This allows the paper to be printed out at the top of the machine rather than the front end. This useful feature enables incoming documents to be printed and collated in the order they are to be read.
Replacing the cartridge is quick and easy because toner, cleaner and other key parts all sit together in one easy replaceable unit. This all-in-one cartridge will keep your faxes as well as your hands clean. Empty toner cartridges can be returned to Canon free of charge for recycling
It copies, too
The FAX-L290 comes complete with a copy feature, which enables you to copy up to 99 pages at high resolution. All these features take up surprisingly little space thanks to the U-paper path, a construction that has both paper intake and output on the top of the fax machine.
