Advanced Productivity
With an output speed of up to 30ppm, a maximum paper capacity of 2300 A4 sheets, and a space saving finisher, the compact imageRUNNER1730i is built to achieve high levels of productivity in the busiest office workgroups. An intuitive 5.7-inch touch-screen display can be tilted to suit any user.

LDAP search makes distribution to email quicker and easier through rapid address resolution, saving time and improving office workflow. The device also enables scans to be sent directly to email in colour. In addition, the imageRUNNER1730i offers the convenience of scanning to - or printing from - a USB memory stick*.

Cost control
Compatibility with Canon’s uniFLOW software provides greater transparency of costs, allowing you to track as well as charge specific print jobs to individuals, departments, locations, and projects.

Compatibility with Canon’s e-Maintenance can further improve uptime through remote diagnostics, automated meter readings and consumables monitoring to reduce administrative time. And with click charging, you only pay for what you print giving you greater control of costs.

A built-in security feature means prints are “held” until the relevant user identifies themselves, using a PIN number. This prevents documents piling up in output trays and being viewed by unauthorised eyes. Up to 100 can be stored at once. Alternatively with Canons uniFLOW solution, this can be combined with card security systems, enabling users to instantly access and print as many jobs as they wish. And once printed, they’re automatically deleted for watertight document control.

Lower environmental impact
The imageRUNNER1730i qualifies for the ENERGY STAR® and has an exceptionally low TEC (Total Energy Consumption) rating and consumes as little as 1-watt power consumption in sleep mode. Highly productive double-sided printing saves more cost and time - as well as paper.

Network Integration
The imageRUNNER1730i can be easily connected to your network and seamlessly integrated into your existing IT framework and print environment with UFRII-LT/PCL and PostScript support. uniFLOW compatibility means the device can easily sit alongside all imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices for efficient mixed fleet deployments. Once connected, iW Management Console (iWMC) provides centralised and remote monitoring and management of the entire fleet.
