Detailed Features

Ideal for use in print for pay and production applications

The SmartLF Gx+ 42 and Gx+ T42 scanners allow you to scan and copy high quality colour and black & white large format documents with ease. Combined with a Canon Large Format Printer, it’s the ideal solution for use in print for pay and production applications where scanning, copying and printing large documents is crucial.

High Quality Image Reproduction

Re-creating vivid colours and fine detail is crucial in the print for pay and production environments. The Smart LF Gx+ 42 and Gx+ T42 use CCD technology and have a 1200dpi resolution, enabling you to scan and copy bright and detailed documents and images accurately.

High Productivity

In production and print for pay, speed is crucial, as the more customers you serve the greater the return on investment. The Gx+ 42 and Gx+ T42 are designed for productivity with the ability to scan up to 12 inches per second in monochrome and 4 in colour.

Start Scanning and Copying Straight Away

The Smart LF Gx+ 42 and Gx+ T42 are both plug and play solutions and come with SmartLF “ready to run” software, a software package that enables you to install the machine quickly and easily and begin scanning and copying straight away.

Energy Efficient

The Gx+ 42 and Gx+ T42 is Energy Star compliant, powering down when idle to guarantee it uses the minimum amount of power.

Network Ready

The gigabit ethernet connection means you can easily connect the Gx+ 42 and Gx+ T42 to your business LAN and enable fast and efficient file transfers.

Handle thick media

The SmartLF Gx+ T 42 scanner includes a motorised, thick media system allowing documents between 2mm and 20 mm to be scanned, including mounted images on materials like Foamex and Kappa board.
