Introducing the imageFORMULAR DR-M260

The Canon DR-M260 is exactly the sort of highly capable desktop scanner the brand is known for. It delivers fast speed, scans to searchable PDF format almost as quickly as to image format, offers impressively accurate optical character recognition (OCR), and comes with world-class programs for document management, for OCR, and for creating and working with PDF files. Its innovative, upright, space-saving go-anywhere, work from anywhere design frees up desk space with the high-quality images and ease of use signature to the imageFormula series.

Unique Space-Saving Design

The DR-M260 takes up less space on your desktop than most high productivity scanners designed for desktop use. It measures only 9.09 by 11.22 by 10 inches (HWD), and it doesn’t need extra room for the output tray. Paper normally follows a U-shaped path, starting in the 80-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) in back, moving under the scanner, and continuing up to the output tray, which is parallel to the scanner front. For heavier-weight paper or business cards, you flip a small lever on the side of the scanner so that the paper will follow a nearly straight path, going under the scanner and then forward through a slot near the bottom of the output tray.

Foremost Flexibility

Scanning both sides of an item at the same time, the DR-M260 can reliably handle a wide variety of document types including think and ultra-thin paper documents, plastic ID cards, embossed cards, and even passports up to 4mm thick. Support includes long documents up to 118” in length and oversized documents up to 11” x 17” can easily be scanned thanks to Canon’s proven paper feeding mechanism, built around heavy-duty feed and separation rollers. The built-in double-feed detection helps to ensure that no data is lost with files being able to save in a variety of formats including PDF, PDF/A, JPEG, TIFF, PPTX, BMP, or PNG to integrate with many different software programs.

Premier Performance

The Canon imageFORMULA DR-M260 is capable of handling an average of about 7.500 pages per day with a throughput speed of 60 pages per minute in color, black and white, or greyscale duplex scanning mode. Its automatic document feeder capacity is 80 A4 sized paper sheets. It can output from 150-600 DPI in Monochrome (Active Threshold, Black & White, Error Diffusion, Advanced Text Enhancement, Advanced Text Enhancement II), 8-bit Greyscale (256-Level), or 24-bit Colour thanks to its built-in Canon CMOS CIS 1 Line Sensor.
