  1. ¹ Document print speed on plain paper is measured based on average of ESAT in Office Category Test of ISO/IEC 24734 standard.

  2. ¹ Optical resolution is a measure of maximum hardware sampling resolution based on ISO 14473 standard. When scanning in high resolution, the scan size is restricted.

  3. ¹ ADF scan speeds are the average of scESAT30secA in "ADF Productivitiy Measurement" test, ISO/IEC 17991:2015. When scanning or copying a certain volume of documents (approx. 150 sheets in default settings) continuously from the ADF, the printer may switch to “waiting mode“ in which paper feeding stops for several tens of seconds after each scan to prohibit overheating the ADF.

  4. ¹ ADF copy speed is the average of ESAT simplex, ISO/IEC 24735, excluding time to copy the first set. When scanning or copying a certain volume of pages continuously using the ADF, the printer may need to do a pause (usually less than 1 minute) after each scan. This is to prevent the paper feeding mechanism overheating. When scanning or copying in default settings (colour, 300dpi), the page feeding starts to pause after approx. 80 sheets of paper when fed continuously or repeatedly in a short period of time. The pause time may vary depending on scan settings including colour or mono and scan resolution.

  5. ¹ Based on default setting using ITU-T No.1 chart for mono and Canon Colour Fax Test Sheet for colour.

  6. ¹ Page yield is based on ISO/IEC 24711 and continuous printing. Printer ships with setup ink tanks.

  7. ¹ Wi-Fi frequency band: 2.4GHz, Wi-Fi Security: WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, WEP, Administration password

  8. ¹ Copy: When copying ISO/JIS-SCID N2 (printed by inkjet printer) on A4 size plain paper using default settings. Specifications are subject to change without notice.

  9. ¹ Typical Energy Consumption (TEC) represents the typical electricity consumed by a product during one week.

  10. ¹ Acoustic Noise is measured based on ISO7779 standard.

  11. ¹ Duty cycle is defined as a maximum number of printed pages for a single peak month.
