Canon's New imageClass 2300
Lake Success, NY—Canon U.S.A., Inc. has recently introduced two Digital Multifunction Imaging Systems, the imageCLASS 2300 and imageCLASS 2300N models. The imageCLASS 2300 provides a perfect workgroup solution with copy and fax capabilities while the imageCLASS 2300N adds network functionality for printing, scanning and PC faxing. Copy and print speeds have both increased to provide the busiest office environments with a highly productive and efficient solution to get the job done.
Canon designed the units to serve office workgroups and small business enterprises. With speeds of 20 copies per minute in letter size and with Super G3 fax functions, the imageCLASS 2300 delivers as a multi-tasking device. Other features include a 50-sheet Automatic Document Feeder, 11x17 inch copy capability and two 250 sheet front-loading paper cassettes. In addition to the productivity features, Canon has designed the imageCLASS 2300 and 2300N to use the Canon Single Cartridge System. This system, by using one cartridge containing both toner and drum unit, is user replaceable. This cartridge is included with the unit and has an approximate yield of 10,000 pages (based on a 5% density original).
The imageCLASS 2300N (Network model), adds the ability to perform network printing with both PCL5e and PCL6 support. Internet fax capabilities allow Network model users to scan documents and attach them to e-mail as a PDF file and send directly from the machine. This model will also allow for PC faxing right from the individual PC workstations to and through the unit.
The set-up and day-to-day functions on both machines is accessed directly on the unit or through a Remote UI with the network version. Using any Internet browser and the IP address assigned to the unit, several functions can be accessed including device management such as a status monitor and device settings; job management such as edit print jobs, view the print/internet fax/send logs; network and printer device setting and address book for fax and e-mail addresses.
