Product Specifications

When you need a dependable large format performer for CAD/GIS applications or general office use, the cost-effective iPF500 hits the mark. Vivid colors and 1200 dpi rendering with outstanding line reproduction provides all the quality you will ever need. The iPF500 incorporates Canon's new 5 color dye-and-pigment reactive ink system for optimal results in your business. A new one-inch print head gives reproduction of 1200 dpi, a 4 Pl droplet size and an impressive total of 15,360 nozzles. The reactive ink system ensures it's adaptable across different applications with vivid color reproduction, solid image consistency and high quality text with less bleeding. You can work with a wide variety of media types. Plain paper, CAD, recycled, glossy, proofing, synthetic, poster, fine art, sign media - they're all handled effortlessly with the iPF500. Connection is either via the latest-generation, high-speed USB 2.0 interface, or Ethernet. Combined with the new print-head and reactive pigment ink system, you can expect superb production at twice the level of some competitor devices. In fact the cassette media-feeding system enables new sheets to be fed prior to the previous sheet being ejected, so the device is perfectly at home when used as a powerful color office printer. The integrated cutting device won't let you down either and keeps on performing for years to come, without ever needing replacement. Simple desktop set-up means you'll be up and running with the iPF500 in no time. A rich set off software application plug-ins are incorporated and PosterArtist enables you to produce head-turning posters - with no experience whatsoever! The iPF500 also incorporates 4 media paths - a roll, cassette and two manual - and automatic switching of roll media for additional convenience. And unlike some large format devices, it's compact and quiet - so it's the output not the noise that gets you noticed.
