Detailed Features

Productivity when it matters

The DR-9050C captures a super-quick 90 ppm while scanning in colour, and black and white, at resolutions of 300dpi (A4, Portrait). A dedicated onboard image-processing chip achieves full rated speeds even when multiple image processing functions are selected.

Operator conscience design

The front–feed design of the DR-9050C provides both comfort and convenience allowing you to load, feed and remove documents effortlessly whilst seated. Furthermore, the control panel and job buttons are all designed to be easily viewable at eye-level.

Flexible and highly efficient

Invoices, delivery notes, reports, charts – some of the many documents businesses process every day. The DR-9050C comfortably handles them all, increasing efficiency and reducing paper workload costs.

An automatic A3 feeder deals with batches of up to 500 sheets and supports 3 different paper feed modes. The robust feeding mechanism feeds and separates mixed documents with ease and, in the rare event of an error, an ultrasonic double feed detection sensor immediately notifies the user for instant problem resolution.

The DR-9050C boasts strong environmental credentials too and is one of the most energy efficient scanners in its class.

Advanced image processing

A huge range of powerful features such as Auto-colour Detection, Text Orientation Recognition, Auto Paper Size and Deskew detection ensure superb quality and optimum efficiency.

Built for tough workloads

The DR-9050C is designed to take on your toughest workloads and reliably handles suggested daily duty cycle of up to 27,000 scans a day.

Software included and options

Canon’s CapturePerfect software is bundled with the DR-9050C, with a Capture Perfect Software Developers Kit (SDK) also available for easy, customised integrations.
