Canon U.S.A. Inc. is one of the world's leaders in digital imaging and advanced office solutions. Being that the company is dedicated to the environment and helping organizations reduce their carbon footprint, it comes as no surprise that the company's imageRUNNER 3245i received a 5-star rating in overall environmental performance from Buyers Laboratory Inc.
Buyers Laboratory Inc. uses extensive real-world testing to determine their ratings and the imageRUNNER 3245i uses less energy in than other products in all non-running and running modes. The imageRUNNER 3245i is a Segment Four monochrome copier. According to the tests from Buyers Laboratory Inc. the imageRUNNER consumed less than half the average energy of any other Four Segment monochrome copier ever tested. To add to that, the imageRUNNER has an annual projected energy cost of just one-third the average in comparison to other models.
The environmental performance evaluation from BLI is extensive, to say the least. The test also takes into consideration not only energy consumption but also recovery times. Low energy consumption is a critical measurement tool in today's streamlined business environments. However, you can not use a device to its fullest potential if it takes a long time to recover from sleep mode. The imageRUNNER showed a recovery time that was faster than the average recorded time from idle and sleep modes overnight.
According to Sam Yoshida, Vice President and General Manager of Imaging Systems Group with Canon U.S.A. Inc., "Canon has a long-standing commitment to environmental preservation and reducing our overall carbon footprint, and receiving these outstanding ratings from BLI is a testament to our dedication. We are continuously researching new and advanced technologies that will not only help streamline and improve business environments but also help companies in their push to become more 'green' and environmentally friendly."
But the praises don't stop there. In addition to the 5-star energy rating, the imageRUNNER also received a 5-star rating in runability using 30%, 50% and 100% recycled paper. The imageRUNNER is also ENERGY-STAR qualified and RoHS-compliant which includes several environmentally conscious features like toner-save mode, job review and proof mode. Green is definitely the way to go these days and it looks like Canon has almost perfected the whole "green" style.
