Despite being introduced to the market in 2005, the Canon DR-9080C A3 Colour Document Scanner can still hold its own, offering comparable features and functionality to modern contemporaries but with reliability that will put other scanners to shame. It will best suit those rental applications looking for a fast, high duty cycle document scanner that is simple to operate.
Scanning speeds are up to 90 pages per minute, achievable with scan settings for a landscape fed A4 page scanned with 200dpi B&W settings and with a SCSI connection to the host. Colour scans can be made at up to 50 pages per minute.
Document handling is also excellent and on par or exceeding those of modern machines with up to 500 documents from 55x70mm up to 305x432mm supported in the continuos auto feeder. Scan settings allow for optical scan resolutions of up to 600dpi and the Canon DR-9080C A3 Colour Document Scanner is able to scan both sides of a page simultaneously (Duplex).
Connectivity is also good with Ultra3 SCSI and USB2 host connections available. Maximum operating speed will be achieved only with the SCSI link but the USB2 provides an option for those unable to fit the required SCSI adapter to their host PC (eg Notebook users).
