As an ENERGY STAR Partner, Canon has determined that the Canon FAX-

to public or private emergency services. DTMF signalling also provides faster call set up.

93/68/EEC.

refill the paper cassette. A memory backup function also
safeguards the contents of the memory for approximately 12
hours after a power failure.

Dual access
Even while you are sending or receiving a document, you can
continue to use the fax to register information with the fax or
record documents into the memory.
Sending starts
immediately
Quick-on-line TX
Before the fax is finished scanning a long document, it will start
dialling and sending the pages that are already scanned. By the
time the last page is scanned, the document transmission is well
under way.
Easy to use
A larger display and control panel with larger buttons makes the

Economical and quiet
Canon’s RAPID Fusing SystemTM
realizes quiet operation while
you save money. If the fax machine remains idle for a specified
length of time, the fax machine automatically shuts itself down
and enters the low energy sleep mode, and will remain in this low
energy mode until the fax machine receives a document
transmission or until you press the ENERGY SAVER button.
70 Private

Expanded transaction features
You can create up to 70 private memory boxes and set them up
to receive documents. If the other party’s fax can use ITU-T
subaddresses and passwords, you can set up and use memory
boxes even if the other party’s fax unit is not a Canon fax.

JBIG, Improved image data compression
JBIG is a new ITU-T standard image data compression method.
JBIG’s compression method allows data to be compressed more
efficiently* than MMR, a convential compression method. JBIG
is especially effective when transmitting halftone image
documents. Because the smaller data size requires less
transmission time, JBIG saves you time and money.
* Actual compression ratio may vary with image.

Using the Menus and Buttons
This section provides a brief overview on how to use the menu buttons to open
menus, make selections, and register data.
General Guidelines for Registering Information
Always keep these points in mind while you are using the menus:
J If you pause and do not press a button for 60 seconds, the fax returns to the
standby mode automatically. You must then start the procedure again from
the beginning.
J If your fax is set to manual receiving and the fax rings while you are
registering information, pick up the handset. If you hear a slow beep tone, the
other party is trying to send you a document. Press STOP and press START/
SCAN to receive the document.
Using the Menus
The fax employs a menu system you can use to register important information or
to set up important features. Here we will describe how to display and open these
menus. The content and purpose of each menu is described in another chapter.
