The New Canon PIXMA Ink Efficient E3170 Promises More Fun and Savings

With Wi-Fi connectivity and affordable ink cartridges to maximise print outputs, users can now enjoy smooth, high quality prints with the confidence of cost efficient printing

SINGAPORE, 6 October 2017 - Canon today announced the introduction of the new PIXMA Ink Efficient E3170 all-in-one printer, complete with copy and scan functions. Ideal for study labs and home offices, the PIXMA E3170 is equipped with low-cost, high yield ink cartridges to offer cost and space savings even for high volume printing.

“The new PIXMA Ink Efficient E3170 was designed to meet the demands of cost and time conscious users, such as students or startups who are seeking to optimise their print volume”, said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. “With the option of the affordable and high capacity ink tanks, the new addition empowers users with higher productivity and expression of their creativity with quality prints without compromising on their budgets.”

Affordable Prints for Versatile Needs
With the affordable PG-47 (black) and CL-57S (colour), the PIXMA E3170 delivers high-volume, low cost printing at up to 400 monochrome documents and 180 colour pages respectively. With the option of the CL-57 high yield ink cartridge, the page yield goes up to 300 pages.

In addition to this cost-efficient ownership, the PIXMA E3170 offers versatility through its ability to produce high quality prints for both documents and photos. For document output, the printer is capable of printing at 7.7 images per minute (ipm) when printing in monochrome, and 4.0 ipm when printing in colour. Images can be printed with borderless settings for 4R, 5x5 and 5R sizes.

Enhanced Operation and Productivity
The PIXMA E3170 comes equipped with a 1.5-inch segment-LCD display with intuitive icons that serve as a user-guide. As such, the multiple operational steps from wireless setup to making multiple copies using different document sizes are simplified and can be managed with ease.

The enhanced operation panel features one-touch switching to direct wireless connection and back to standard network infrastructure mode, making it easy for friends and guests to connect and print without the need to divulge confidential wireless network passwords.

The printers also support intelligent power management in the Auto Power ON/OFF setting. This means that the printer will automatically shut down after a period of inactivity, and powered up again when a print job is received.  This setting can be configured easily using the printer driver, or using the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app.

Wireless and Mobile Printing
With its built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, installing the PIXMA E3170 in any environment within a local wireless[1] network will be a seamless and easy process. Even without a wireless router, the PIXMA E3170 is able to support direct wireless connection with mobile devices and tablets for printing of documents and photos.

When paired with the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app, users can print and scan using their iPhones, iPads, or any Android OS device. From the app, users can also view remaining ink levels, make changes to printer settings, and register their printers to new cloud services.

The PIXMA E3170 is also cloud-aware, offering true print-from-anywhere mobility using the free PIXMA Cloud Link or Google Cloud Print services.

Pricing and Availability
The PIXMA E3170 is currently available at all Canon authorised dealers at the recommended retail price of $149.00.
