imageRUNNER 2530


Designed to meet the needs of small to mid-size workgroups, the Canon imageRUNNER 2530 delivers high-quality print and copy output and color scanning combined with available sending and finishing capabilities that are easy to use for everyone in the office. Rather than having to choose between a single function printer and an MFP with features you don't need, the Canon imageRUNNER 2530 includes just the right mix of performance and productivity in a configuration that fits your needs - today and tomorrow. The imageRUNNER 2530 delivers black and white print speeds of up to 30 ppm and scanning speeds of 35/25 ipm (BW/color) for letter-sized documents with the available duplexing automatic document feeder. Offering standard UFR II LT printing, twin 550-sheet cassettes, a large intuitive LCD interface, and internal finishing options, the imageRUNNER 2530 system packs easy-to-use productivity into a new compact form.


The imageRUNNER 2530 employs an updated version of the powerful imageCHIP LITE system architecture, consisting of a new CPU to speed up copy, print, fax, scan, and send functions. This architecture integrates the CPU and the image processing technologies onto a single chip, allowing for highly efficient processing of multiple functions simultaneously.

A compact MFP with a smart, comfortable design and innovative integrated accessories that enables the system to be placed in areas with limited space.

Using a CIS scanning unit, the imageRUNNER 2530 delivers excellent quality for copies and color scans. With a copy scanning resolution of 600x600 dpi and a native print resolution of 1200x1200 dpi, you benefit from the most faithful reproduction of text and images.

An optional 50-sheet Duplexing Automatic Document Feeder makes scanning multi-page and different-sized originals quick and easy.

With standard twin 550-sheet paper cassettes and a maximum paper capacity of 2,300 sheets, the imageRUNNER 2530 enables longer runs between paper fillups, allowing your office to be more productive.

The imageRUNNER 2530 is ready to handle your office prints with UFR II LT printing and 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet connectivity. Optional PCL 5e/6 and Postscript printing provides added flexibility to support your applications.

Standard duplexing capability provides users with the ability to copy/print their documents on either one or two sides of paper, saving paper, toner, and energy.

Documents up to 11"" x 17"" can be scanned in color or black and white at resolutions up to 600 x 600 dpi. These files then can be imported into TWAIN-compliant applications on the desktop through Canon's Color Network ScanGear software.

In addition to Color Scanning, the available Color Send technology gives users the ability to send their scanned documents directly to various destinations such as e-mail addresses, USB memory media, or even a particular folder on their network or computers. Includes support for PDF High Compression technology for efficient handling of color image data, and optional Searchable PDF technology to add OCR data to your scanned documents to make the most of documents.

LDAP address book support allows for browsing the corporate address book for easier scan-and-send operations, while also reducing address book maintenance.

The imageRUNNER 2530 gives IT managers control and helps drive cost out of operations with a variety of tools including the standard Remote User Interface, support for Canon's imageWARE Enterprise Management Console application, and Canon's Generic PCL6 driver to simplify driver deployment.

Designed with Canon's RAPID Fusing System to deliver exceptional image quality with less heat and energy to operate, while also allowing fast warm-up times

On-the-fly toner replenishment keeps your office productive, so print and copy jobs keep running while the toner is replaced.

ID Card Copy mode provides a simple way to copy both sides of an ID card onto a single page.

An optional Super G3 fax board delivers the ability to transmit faxes at impressive speeds, without the need for a separate fax machine.
