Help boost office efficiency and productivity with the user-friendly Canon imageFORMULA DR-C240 office document scanner. With its powerful document capture capabilities and dynamic ability to scan various document types like passports, this scanner can easily convert paper-based documents into high-quality, digital files for any office environment.



Sectors such as government, financial/banking, insurance, accommodation services, transportation, rental and leasing services, legal services, and more can benefit from the dynamic scanning of the DR-C240 scanner. It can be used to integrate information into digital workflows for process automation and information distribution while helping to increase collaboration among individuals or workgroups.



At up to 45 ppm, the DR-C240 scanner can scan both sides of an item in a single pass, in color or black and white.* Capable of holding up to 60 sheets, it can handle a variety of document types including thick, thin, long, or oversized documents, plastic or embossed cards, and even passports for greater versatility and flexibility. In addition, the DR-C240 comes equipped with double-feed release functions and one-touch release button to allow scanning to resume when double-feed is detected for a seamless and more efficient scanning experience.



Designed with the user in mind, the DR-C240 scanner’s easyto-use operation panel contains accessible controls to start scanning operations, preconfigure job tasks, and more with one-touch job buttons. It can scan different-size documents in mixed batches to help eliminate the wastefulness of time in presorting document types. Bundled with both Canon CaptureOnTouch and Canon CapturePerfect software, users can preconfigure scan tasks and choose from a wide selection of file distribution options. With CaptureOnTouch, scanned documents can be sent directly to third-party cloud applicationss such as Evernote™, Microsoft® SharePoint®, Dropbox, SugarSync, Google Drive™, and OneDrive. This scanner is also bundled with ISIS® and TWAIN drivers for easy integration with third-party software.



To help enhance and maintain image quality of documents, the DR-C240 scanner contains features such as Auto Resolution setting. This is useful for scanning mixed batches of documents and photographs by automatically adjusting the output resolution to improve quality and reduce image file size. Other features include Character Emphasis and Text Enhancement that can help to improve text legibility on hard-to-read documents to ensure accurate document capture.



The DR-C240 scanner meets ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency and complies with both the EU RoHS and WEEE directives for the reduction of hazardous substances and waste products.■
