DR-6010C can scan documents in color just as quickly as in black & white - at a fast 60 pages per minute (200dpi, A4/LTR, Portrait). The default U-turn paper path handles batch scanning at high speeds, while a straight paper path provides the flexibility to scan plastic cards, fragile and thick documents. And the DR-6010C features many efficiency-boosting image processing functions such as Automatic Page Size Detection, Skip Blank Page, Deskew, Automatic Color Detection, Moire Reduction, Text Orientation recognition.


Fast and Efficient Document Handling

Despite being small enough to fit on a desktop, the Canon DR-6010C is capable of meeting all busy office requirements for document scanning quickly and effectively. The innovative design and cutting-edge technology expertly accommodate a wide variety of document sizes and types, converting with ease stacks of papers to digital format with exceptional speed and accuracy.

High speed scanning

State-of-the-art 3-line CMOS contact image sensor technology allows the DR-6010C remarkably accurate image replication at an exceptional speed, equally fast with color and black-and-white – 60 pages per minute and 120 images per minute (A4/LTR, 200 dpi, portrait). Onboard JPEG compression also reduces the amount of time previously needed to transfer data to a PC.

Various document sizes

DR-6010C features a versatile dual paper path that allows easy processing of a diversity of document types. The default U-turn path is designed for handling pages of standard, A4/LTR-size thickness, while the straight paper path can process thick items – even plastic ID cards. Also, the scanner can be switched from automatic to manual sheet feeding to accommodate non-standard paper types, including multi-sheet forms printed on carbonless (NCR) paper.

Two paper paths

Ultrasonic double-feed detection

Double-feeds are caught with ultrasonic sensors that detect the gap between overlapping pages. The sheets are then halted from going through the scanner, allowing the double feed to be corrected.

Shading mechanism

To ensure consistent image quality, the DR-6010C performs an automatic calibration process called shading prior to each scan job. In an all-new mechanism that provides protection against dust, the image sensor shifts to calibrate itself against a special white shading surface that’s affixed directly on the sensor glass.


Advanced Scanner Functions

The most intricate of image details can be captured with exquisite precision and clarity using DR-6010C’s advanced efficiency-optimizing image processing functions and 600 dpi high optical resolution.

Auto Color Detection

DR-6010C is equipped with Auto Color Detection to detect, during the scanning of documents in a mixed batch, whether or not a page contains color. Black-and-white images are scanned in black-and-white scanning mode, and color pages in color scanning mode. This eliminates the need to separate black-and-white and color documents prior to scanning while ensuring image files are kept smaller than if scanning the whole batch in color mode.

3-Dimensional Color Space Correction

The 3-Dimensional Color Correction helps the DR-6010C achieve unprecedented color accuracy, true to the original document, using an onboard color conversion chip to pinpoint the exact RGB coordinates.

Advanced image processing

This model offers a collection of invaluable image-processing functions that optimize your document’s readability and minimize the need for reprocessing.

  • Auto Page Size Detection, Deskew, Skip Blank Page, Text Orientation Recognition, Color Dropout (R/G/B Custom), Moire Reduction, Prevent Bleed-Through / Remove Background, Punch Hole Removal, MultiStream, and MORE

Rapid Recovery System

While other scanners require the rescanning of an entire document in the event of a misfeed or paper jam, the DR-6010C is equipped with a Rapid Recovery System that stops for the repositioning of a misfed document so that scanning may resume from where it left off.

One-touch Job buttons

Frequently-used scanning functions, such as Scan to E-mail, can be programmed for speedy, one-touch execution. Three customizable Job buttons on the scanner’s face can be easily assigned for such routine jobs using the included Job Registration Tool.
