Detailed Features

Bring added intelligence to your business with the powerful iR5870C/Ci, a black and white multifunctional that features smart colour. High-speed production capabilities integrate seamlessly into any environment, creating a multi-tasking, focal point of business communication, equipped for your most exacting requirements.

Colour when you need it

By analysing your source documents and files, the iR5870C/Ci automatically determines which are in colour and prints or copies them accordingly. So you only pay for colour when you use it.

Intelligence to complement yours

With in-built ID management, you can specify users, providing controlled, secure access to the machine. Additional applications such as Netspot Accountant MEAP enable you to accurately assess usage and costs by user, group or department. Plus, the iR5870C/Ci also provides secure internet access directly at the device!

Designed to match your needs

The iR5870Ci runs at 58ppm in black and white and 16ppm in colour and comes fully network-ready with a built-in PS/PCL/UFR II printer kit and Universal Send. Alternatively, the iR5870C copier can be connected to three different printer kits yet fax, scan and send capabilities are always an option.

Productivity with control

A large colour menu-driven touch-screen provides simple control whilst an express copy feature speeds up access to more complex jobs. Remote access is just as easy using a web-browser.

In addition to automatic collation, hole punching and variable position stapling, users can choose from an impressive range of finishes, even producing professional, colour saddle-stitched booklets.

Send directly to email

Canon’s URL Send feature enables documents to be scanned at up to 44 ipm and stored on the device (or an FTP site) with the document URL sent by email to a recipient. Furthermore, users can minimise the risk of unauthorized distribution by encrypting PDF files.

Future proof investment

With MEAP (Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform), Canon’s device-embedded Java based application platform, new and customised software can be incorporated directly within the device on-site.

Environmentally responsible

As an energy saving resource the iR5870C/Ci is ahead of its time. In sleep mode, the system cuts power consumption, keeping operational costs to a minimum. And the device is manufactured according to the strictest environmental standards.
