11x17 document size scanning

Flexible Scanning

Even small documents such as business cards and checks up through 11 x 17 documents, can be scanned reliably and intermixed at high speed. With speeds up to 90 pages per minute* for 8-1/2 x 11 documents, it will make short work of high-volume, time-sensitive processing. As for performance, the scanner comes with 64MB of onboard memory (upgradeable to 128MB) allowing for efficient processing into multiple formats including TIFF, JPEG, and JBIG.

Large ADF scanner

A standard, large-capacity document feeder can hold up to 500 standard documents. A variety of documents can be scanned covering a wide range of size and paper thickness, since adjustment for both are completely automatic. A unique Dynamic Skew Correction feature straightens skewed documents automatically during feeding, so stacks of intermixed paper sizes can be processed quickly and accurately.

Easily Integrated

Operation is very simple, either by application software or by a touch of a button. All scanner setups, such as density adjustment and normal scanning functions, can be controlled by either the convenient operation panel or via driver interface.

Furthermore, documents are fed and received at the front of the unit making it ideal for desktop applications. Connectivity couldn’t be simpler with a choice of three included drivers: ISIS and TWAIN drivers certified by Pixel Translations, and Canon’s own driver.


When scanning large quantities of small documents such as checks, a special receiving tray is included for the DR-5020. It ensures that originals are neatly stacked and received in order once scanned. A handy "count-only" mode is available for verification or if a simple document count is required. Four user-programmable function keys store custom scanner setups for faster processing of diverse work.


An imprinter option prints specified numerals, characters and symbols at any position on the scanned documents. The optional Endorser ED-600 allows you to print an eight-digit number and/or any characters on the document during scanning. A must for meeting federal cc: regulations or if a "scanned" verification stamp is required. For bar-coded documents, a barcode decoder can be added at any time, for automatic interpretation.


By feeding the supplied Function Sheets together with your documents, the scanner will automatically detect the requested function and sets the predetermined scanning modes. For example, Function Sheets instruct for the intermixing of different document types, so single-sided or double-sided scanning and batching can be done without interruption. Reproducible master function sheets are packaged with the DR-5020.
