Compact CR-135i Check Transport Expands Canon’s Portfolio of High-Performance Imaging Solutions

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today launched the imageFORMULA CR-135i High-Volume Check Transport. This new high-performance scanner provides outstanding image quality and exceptional reliability in a convenient design, ideal for any high-volume check processing environment.

The CR-135i allows financial institutions, utilities and other organizations to improve the efficiency of payment processes and treasury management by processing more checks with greater accuracy in a shorter period of time. This can result in faster access to funds, reduced operational costs, and increased ROI.

Featuring duplex scanning, the Canon CR-135i achieves speeds of up to 135 checks per minutei, can handle up to 20,000 items per day, and performs real-time dynamic four-line endorsement. Equipped with a high-capacity, 250-item Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) capable of continuous drop-in batch scanning, the CR-135i check transport also includes two 200-item eject pockets that can be used individually or “waterfalled” for increased capacity. These eject pockets are supplemented with an additional 50-item pocket for three-way sorting.

“The imageFORMULA CR-135i is the latest addition to Canon’s growing line of check transport products, including the CR-25 and CR-55 Compact Check Transports, and the CR-180II and CR-190i High-Volume Check Transports,” said Jim Rosetta, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. “Its blend of high-performance and reliability, in a convenient countertop design, makes the CR-135i a perfect solution for high-volume remittance processing, lockbox, back-office capture, and branch automation.”

The CR-135i employs Canon’s proven roller system to achieve exceptional document feeding reliability. It can handle a variety of items, including business and personal checks, thicker items such as rebate check cards and envelopes, and related small documents such as coupons, vouchers and tickets. Should a double-feed occur, the ultrasonic double-feed detector ensures that no data is lost. Also, the CR-135i check transport utilizes MOCR, which complements Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to ensure the highest possible MICR decoding accuracy without sacrificing speed.

By building on Canon’s optical technology expertise, the CR-135i check transport delivers impressive image quality and image processing features, such as Fine Text Filtering, allowing sharper image capture and better OCR accuracy. With an optical resolution of 1200 dpi, small details and other valuable information can be captured and reproduced with exceptional clarity and precision.

In keeping with Canon’s commitment to the environment, the CR-135i check transport meets ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency and complies with the RoHS and WEEE directives for reduction of hazardous substances and waste products. It is also part of Canon’s Generation Green Program, Canon’s initiative that aims to reduce the environmental burdens in all stages of a product’s lifecycle.

Durable materials, enclosed mechanics and an easy-access paper path make it simple to perform basic maintenance tasks, such as changing the devices ink cartridge and cleaning the scanning glass. Also available for the CR-135i check transport is an eCarePAK. eCarePAK extends service beyond the initial warranty period, saving on costs associated with post-purchase maintenance, maximizing uptime throughout the product life, and instilling confidence in the Canon investment for years to come.
