ALLOCATE YOUR RESOURCES WISELY
Streamlined administration saves precious time.
Advanced technologies spare the environment.
Centralized control
Whether you’re managing one imageRUNNER system or an
entire fleet, Canon can help make it easier. Users and administrators can securely access the system over the network via
a standard Web browser through the Remote UI interface.
Larger numbers of imageRUNNER systems can be efficiently
managed via the complementary imageWARE Enterprise
Management Console Web-based application. Regardless
of the method, managers can view system and consumables
status and usage, and adjust configurations from across
the network as needed. Canon’s Generic PCL 6 driver also
simplifies management, giving IT administrators a single

is a partner to help achieve your green-conscious goals.
The imageRUNNER 2530/2525 models are remarkably energy
efficient, using approximately 1W of electricity in Sleep Mode.
Yet Canon’s technology can warm up quickly from this point to
combine high productivity with minimal energy usage. With
standard support for duplex and N-up printing, these systems
can easily save on the cost of consumables. From responsible
manufacturing and smart transportation to reduced energy
use and long-life consumables, Canon is dedicated to being
a friend to both the environment and your budget.
imageWARE Enterprise Management Console
Enhanced security and authentication
Protecting all connected devices on the network is important,
which is why Canon has provided the ability to limit access
to the system and its features to only authorized users. For
enhanced security, access can be controlled using Canon’s
uniFLOW Output Manager. To simplify secure access even
further, uniFLOW can also be combined with a USB-based
proximity card solution. Additionally, the imageRUNNER 2530/
2525 Series can perform all its powerful functions without
an internal hard disk drive, thus eliminating concerns over
confidential data retained on the MFP.
