Advanced Performance
Dependable operation.
Outstanding results.
Produce professional-quality documents quickly and easily. The imageRUNNER
ADVANCE 500iF/400iF models provide eye-catching quality in a compact footprint—
all with the reliable performance you expect from Canon.
Outstanding results
Lots of uptime
Powerful operation
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE 500iF/400iF
models give you the ability to print
high-quality documents in-house regardless
of the size of your operation. Proposals,
reports, newsletters, and contracts are
consistently striking in crisp black and
white and 1200 dpi, thanks to Canon’s
state-of-the-art imaging technology and
toner technologies. With the compact
finisher option, everyone in your office
can make a great impression with a
minimum amount of floor space.
Canon incorporates its signature reliability
into every imageRUNNER ADVANCE
Series model. Status notifications help
keep you ahead of the game, and toner
bottles are easy to access. The waste toner
bottle is readily replaceable by the user,
further minimizing downtime. If the
correct paper for a job is unavailable, the
system begins the next job without delay.
And with access to the latest technology
and simple, clear upgrades, you can power
through your tasks, giving you more time
to devote to other business areas.
Accomplish multiple tasks concurrently
with the speed your work demands.
These models have two dedicated
processors that work together to
accomplish multiple tasks simultaneously. And Quick Startup mode
minimizes start-up time, so devices
start up promptly to help keep you
working with outstanding efficiency.
Targeted, integrated solutions
With productivity being key, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE
500iF/400iF models offer the ability to personalize the
way your company gathers, organizes, and disseminates
information. Canon’s innovative MEAP® platform lets you
run custom solutions to meet specific workflow needs.
And new levels of connector and link support enhance
communication with existing systems as well as those
you may acquire in the future.
Advanced Responsibility
Strong commitment.
Eco-conscious solutions.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE 500iF/400iF models incorporate innovative, eco-conscious
solutions that help keep your business operating efficiently while also helping to reduce
your environmental footprint.
A clear strategy
Greater energy efficiency
A responsible way to work
Canon knows that the world and the workplace need a more
responsible workflow, and the EPEAT®-rated imageRUNNER
ADVANCE 500iF/400iF models deliver just that. Now you can
seamlessly share and distribute digital documents and preview
files to make changes prior to printing, reducing the use of paper
and toner. Print drivers are defaulted to duplex documents,
encouraging two-sided printing to help reduce waste. And with
secured printing, documents are sent to a device but not printed
until a password is entered, further reducing paper waste.
Eco-conscious design
Canon is making a difference through
creative ecological thinking. These
models employ certain components
fabricated with 100% recycled plastic
from retired products. Canon’s
innovative environmentally focused
technologies also include bio-based
plastic, a plant-derived compound
that replaces certain petroleumbased plastic parts.
From the inside out, the imageRUNNER
ADVANCE 500iF/400iF models are
designed for high-energy efficiency and
stellar performance. The combination of
Canon’s fusing technologies and QF toner
helps lower overall energy consumption
by minimizing power requirements and
reducing energy use during warm-up
and standby. With advanced technologies
present in each model, the Series also
meets ENERGY STAR® standards.
Minimize environmental impact
All Canon suppliers are required to meet
Canon’s stringent Green Procurement
policy and environmental terms. This
helps the company exceed the toughest
global standards set by the EU RoHS
Directive, which restrict the use of certain
hazardous substances. In fact, Canon
was the first in the industry to meet the
RoHS standards and continues this
commitment to the environment.
Reduction of CO2 emissions
Through its Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
System, Canon has lowered CO2
emissions by focusing on each stage of
the product life cycle, including manufacturing, energy use, and logistics.
These products are designed with less
packaging to be small and light with high
performance. They’re intended to help
make transportation more efficient.
imageRUNNER ADVANCE 500iF/400iF
More than managed print.
Real Managed Document Services
Powerful MDS Enabler
Cost-efficient. Feature-packed
Leverage your fleet
MDS (Managed Document Services)—expert,
ongoing optimization of your total document environment—can boost productivity
and help deliver big savings. These models
are designed from the start to tap into
powerful MDS tools and services that track
usage, optimize printing behavior, identify
excessive printing, efficiently manage
information and process, and more.
Never before has Canon packed so
many capabilities into a color device this
small. Now you can benefit from powerful
imageRUNNER ADVANCE capabilities
without sacrificing space. Plus, you can
cost-effectively consolidate fleets of
inefficient, stand-alone printers into a
single advanced system, helping to
instantly lower overhead costs.
Canon delivers the industry’s most comprehensive and operationally consistent
range of smart devices, from letter-sized
black and white to color light production.
Users like the familiar operation while
owners like the high uptime and low TCO.
And IT pros like the fast deployment,
ready connectivity, and ease of upgrades
for the common platform.
Software solutions supporting MDS
Canon’s available software solutions and
professional services address every area
of MDS and help take your business to the
next level.
