Canon U.S.A. is launching its new Océ PlotWave 500 large-format printing system that features the Océ ClearConnect touch screen interface for faster and easier walk-up printing, copying and scanning. The Océ PlotWave 500 can print 10 D-size plots per minute with virtually no warm-up delay, according to Canon, as well as cloud connection.
The Océ PlotWave 500 integrates Océ’s exclusive Radiant Fusing technology, which Canon says provides quick warm-up time compared to a slow start-up of up to four minutes for conventional printers.The PlotWave 500 is also Energy Star 2.0 compliant, and is designed and constructed for commercial use with durable, hard-wearing components.
The Océ ClearConnect software suite provides flexible ways to submit files to the printer. Users can print from their desktop via Océ Publisher Select to manage complex document sets. With additional mobile apps, users can submit files for printing from their Apple iOS and Android smartphones or tablets.
Canon says the Océ ClearConnect is similar to using a smartphone or tablet, so that there should be a short learning curve, and there’s also detailed document preview functions.
Designed for use by computer assisted design (CAD) professionals, Canon says the Océ PlotWave 500 is virtually silent in idle mode and generates only 52 db(A) of sound while printing. Canon also says the Océ PlotWave 500 also provides the lowest energy usage in its class, thanks to its Radiant Fusing technology.
The Océ PlotWave 500 runs on the universal Océ software suite that looks and works the same across all Océ wide-format systems. Users can define job settings and run tasks on the Océ ClearConnect touch screen, print driver or submission tool in the same way as with all Océ color and monochrome large-format systems. This creates a uniform workflow across the Océ PlotWave 750, Océ PlotWave 340/360, Océ ColorWave 650, and Océ ColorWave 300 systems.
