Canon iR 6800CN

Further Information

The iR 6800CN is one of our first B&W Multifunctional Printers (MFP) that adds affordable colour to documents produced by busy workgroups and departments. Now everyone on your network can scan in, share, send and finish documents.


Detailed Features

Share and Send in Colour

The iR 6800Cn is intelligent when linked to your network. So you can scan in black and white or colour documents fast, sending them electronically to wherever they are needed - e-mail addresses, personal mailboxes, databases or file servers for storage. And electronic means secure which is perfect for confidential documents. Thanks to Canon's file compression, you don't even have to worry about colour congesting your network.

Use Colour Intelligently and Economically

The iR6800CN's smart colour capability means you use colour only as and when you need it. Use Canon's ID management technology to stop expensive unauthorised usage by setting colour and volume limits for users via individual paswwords. To save unnecessary print costs, the printer setting defaults to black and white, so you choose when you want colour. Take advantage of Canon's consultative approach and learn how you can attribute print costs to individual clients and control your colour budget even more efficiently.

Look Smart, Be Productive

Smart colour capability adds a professional dimension to standard mono documents such as sales presentations and financial reports. The iR 6800CN is also the first colour capable MFP to incorporate Canon's durable a-Si drum for rapid high volume printing and Canon's new Hybrid Process Engine for enhanced print speed and economy. So now you can print at 68ppm in black and white and 16ppm in colour, create high quality mixed colour and mono documents on a varitey of media and maintain your workflow with high capacity continuous printing.

Brilliant Finishing and Faster Collating with iWPM

Still collating by hand and struggling with deadlines? Then Canon iW Publishing Manager is just the breakthrough for you. It enables you to bring together mixed documents from different applications (Microsoft Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Adobe PDF etc.), create a single electronic document from them which you can edit, amend, personalise, finish (from the iR 6800CN's impressive range of options) and print. With no software training and huge saves in manual collation time.

Network Ready and Ecologically Prepared

Select your chosen model from the 2 versions available. The iR6800CN is fully network ready with a built-in PS/PCL/UFR printer board. The iR 6800C (copier only) can be connected to 3 different printer boards. And whatever your working environment, both models are unrivalled in the natural environment. The iR 6800CN is the world's first IT based product to comply to the new EC RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive.
