Colortrac Scanner System
imagePROGRAF W6400
(Also available with Colortrac Scanner System)
This complete workflow solution provides for a fast and effective
large-format capture-to-output system for a wide variety of users.
Copying, archiving, or distributing maps, CAD drawings, posters,
or documents is simple, quick, and easy. This system includes
not only the hardware–imagePROGRAF printer, Colortrac color
scanner, desktop workstation–but also software, such as
CopySmart, SmartLF, and the HDI driver, to give any level of
user a complete, out-of-the-box solution.
The scanner provides room for flexible document formats of up
to 44" wide (40" image width) by unlimited length. It has scan
speeds of up to 10.1 inches per second for monochrome and
3.36 inches per second for color, making this a powerful production tool for many environments. It’s ideal for documents in
the AEC, CAD, GIS, archive, reproduction, and office markets, such
as maps (GIS); construction, engineering, and manufacturing
drawings; site and facilities management plans (VAC/plumbing/
utilities); court and property documents; design and layout
proofs; posters; and office documents.
THIS imagePROGRAF SYSTEM INCLUDES ALL COMPONENTS NECESSARY TO SAVE SCANNED IMAGES,
DISTRIBUTE THEM ELECTRONICALLY, AND PRINT THEM QUICKLY AND ACCURATELY.
No matter what the application or skill level of the user, Canon includes the tools
needed to create, process, and print large-format output.

The scan rate is proportional across the full range of resolutions supported by the scanner. Actual scan times will depend on the host system performance. Speeds quoted are for documents less than 24 inches width (60.96 cm); wider documents scan half this speed.
The quoted scan accuracy is valid for media up to 0.8mm thick and may vary depending on the operating environment and the type and thickness of media. SmartLF scanners are tested using a Mylar target at 20°C +/- 30°C, 60% +/- 10% RH with the media feed set to standard.
