imageRUNNER 2545i

Multifunction Copiers

Solutions to help increase office efficiencies and productivity

Advanced Solutions for your industry

  • The imageRUNNER 2545i 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 an advanced CCD scanning unit, the imageRUNNER 2545i delivers superior 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.

  • A standard 100-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 2545i enables longer runs between paper fill ups, allowing offices to be more productive.

  • The imageRUNNER 2545i is ready to handle your office prints with UFR II LT, PCL5e/6 and PS (emulated) printing and 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet connectivity.

  • 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 imageRUNNER 2545i includes Color Send technology standard, giving 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 computer. Includes support for PDF High Compression technology for efficient handling of color image data, and 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 2545i 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.

GPR-34 Toner
Color: Black
Item Code: 2786B003AB
Estimated Toner Yield: 19,400 Copies/Bottle  (Estimated @ 6% Coverage)

This is to make Misc appear on the page when needed.

The imageRUNNER 2500 Series models employs the imagechip (Concurrent Hyper Intelligent Platform) Lite system architecture. Imagechip Lite architecture provides concurrent processing technology (dynamic concurrent multi-functional processing), which enables faster image processing and color scanning abilities. All imageRUNNER 2500 models are equipped with the imagechip Lite controller with 512MB of available memory (RAM) as standard.

Yes, color scanning capability is standard, via the Color Network Scan Gear tool. Color Sending is also available.

Yes, the imageRUNNER 2500 Series models feature a Compact E(Excellent)-Drum. E-Drum technology has been incorporated into the imageRUNNER ADVANCE models for professional color printing and this technology is being introduced in the black-and-white office devices for the first time. The E-Drum employs an additional layer on the surface of an OPC drum, which resists scratching and wear. E-Drum technology delivers significant improvements in durability and reliability compared to standard OPC drum, while maintaining high image quality.

QF (Quick Fixing) toner is employed, which fuses quickly at low temperatures and achieves high quality output. The QF toner maximizes the performance of the RAPID Fusing Technology, which utilizes ceramic heater to instantaneously heat the rubber coated fixing film for high energy efficiency. Both enable an energy saving design of a 1.0 W energy consumption in the Sleep mode, and a Sleep mode recovery time of 1 second or less.

Yes, imageRUNNER 2500 Series models are Energy Star qualified. Canon has incorporated a range of energy saving technologies into its products, such as QF Toner with low melting point and RAPID Fusing Technology to help save energy while improving performance. Canon's technologies achieve a low 1W of electrical use when in sleep mode, while maintaining a fast 1 second or less warm-up time.

Yes, envelopes are supported with the optional envelope attachment, holding up to 50 envelopes. Supported envelope types are COM10 No.10, Monarch, DL, ISO-B5, ISO-C5.Envelopes can also be fed through the Stack Bypass, one at a time.

FCOT is reduced to less than 3.9 seconds on imageRUNNER 2545/2535 Series and 5.4 seconds on the imageRUNNER 2530/2525 models, after warm-up.

The imageRUNNER 2500 Series come standard with UFR II LT. Optional PCL 5e/6 and PostScript 3 emulation printing options are also available. PCL and PS are standard on "i" models.

The Generic PCL6 Print Driver (the official name for Canon's universal print driver) will be available and will support imageRUNNER 2500 Series models as well as imageRUNNER ADVANCE and certain legacy models. The Generic PCL6 Print Driver reduces IT burden by allowing deployment of a single driver to support multiple device models. The PCL print option is required to use this driver.

Ideal for Healthcare, ID Card Copy is a new Copy feature that allows users to copy the front and back of an ID card onto a single page. There is a dedicated option to guide users through the simple process.

The imageRUNNER 2500 Series models support sending to USB memory Media, email, I-fax, fax*, SMB, and FTP.
Note: Color Send Kit-Y1 is required for send capability. It is standard on "i" models and optional on base models.

Yes, all the devices come standard with USB 2.0 ports, one for Device and one for Host. The optional USB Application 3-Port Interface Kit-A1 can be added to expand the number of USB Host ports on the device from one (standard) to three, providing support for concurrent usage of USB Memory Media and USB Keyboard.

Yes, users can scan and store files directly into a USB memory media. This feature is standard on "i" models. Base models must install the optional Color Send Kit-Y1.
