Comfortable high-performance scanning

Sturdy, compact, durable body

Inside the sturdy body, which is compact enough to sit comfortably on your desktop, the moving parts of the feed path, tray and upper unit have been rendered even more durable. It’s designed to stay on top of high-volume scanning needs in a variety of business settings.

Super-fast scanning

High-speed one-pass duplex scanning at 60ppm /120ipm allows efficient scanning of large volumes of documents. Highly reliable document handling is assured by means of a high-performance feed roller. It can handle all kinds of input from thick or thin documents to multi-sheet forms, checks, embossed cards, and even A3/11″ x 17″ folio.

High-volume ADF

The heavy-duty Auto Document Feeder can hold up to 60 sheets.

Windows and Mac compatibility

Scanner drivers and CaptureOnTouch for both Windows and Mac OS environments are provided, with the same functionality available on both platforms.


Reliable feeding mechanism supported by solid technology

Reliable document feeding

Canon’s reliable page separation mechanism provides smooth feeding of a wide variety of document sizes and weights. The DR-M160ll also uses a new feed roller for even better paper feeding. Features such as Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection and Rapid Recovery further ensure dependability by making sure each and every page of a batch is scanned.

If a double feed is detected, the Retry and DFR functions allow scanning to resume.

If a double feed is detected at the feeder inlet, engaging the Retry Function automatically reverses the path of the document so that it can be fed again and rescanned. Also, if a document has something like a photo or a tag stuck to it, scanning can be resumed either by selecting the DFR (Double Feed Release) in the double feed confirmation dialogue on the screen, or by pressing the DFR button on the main unit to indicate that it is not a case of double feed.

* DFR is only available in Continuous Scanning mode and if Double Feed Detection is set up.

User-friendly operation panel

Start and stop scanning and perform other operations away from your computer with the operating panel.

Various functions to improve scanning efficiencies and qualities

Wide range of intelligent image processing functions are equipped.
Please refer to the “Image processing functions” page for details.

Bundled Software

CapturePerfect and CaptureOnTouch are both capture application software for the DR scanner series.
Each of the software can be selected and used, depending on the usage and workflow.
