Detailed Features

Time-saving speed

Reduce your phone costs, thanks to ultra fast Super G3 transmission. And spend less time at the machine, as you can scan your faxes at a quick 4.3 seconds per page *. Furthermore, laser printing is a rapid 14 pages per minute. And there’s virtually no warm-up time either for the FAX-L400. The end result is that you end up with more time to concentrate on other work.

Cost-cutting efficiency

When sending longer faxes, a 50-page Automatic Document Feeder handles it all for you. Speed dialling, with 30 one-touch keys and 100 coded keys, makes sending to regular clients simple. There’s a large 250-sheet paper cassette. And, even if paper runs out, a 256-page memory * stores all your faxes safely for printing later. A special toner-saving mode cuts costs. While dual access allows you to carry out various functions simultaneously.

Exceptional ease

The clear control panel of the FAX-L400 makes operation super simple. What’s more, Canon’s All-In-One cartridge can be easily changed in seconds, which means there’s no mess, just clean hands. You also benefit from a Fax/Tel auto switch and an answering machine connection, so no messages are missed. Plus it saves on the cost of needing an extra line for your fax.

High quality images

When sending fine text, diagrams and even photos, Canon’s unique UHQ (Ultra High Quality) technology ensures exceptional image quality. 256 greyscale reproduction produces perfect halftones on faxes and copies. With 600 dpi laser printing on plain paper giving high quality and durable faxes.

Printing and copying

You can use the FAX-L400 as a highly productive 14 pages per minute laser printer. It also functions as a high quality flatbed copier, for copying or faxing book and magazine pages as well as all your regular work. Plus you get all the benefits of digital copying, including electronic sorting, 2-on-1 copying and scan once print many. All in one fast and efficient unit.
