Canon adds to ‘Green’ calculator series
Dubai, August 11, 2009
Canon has introduced two new ‘Green’ calculators: LS-120TSG and the F-502G, as part of it highly successful Green series, which also join the desktop calculator and scientific line ups, respectively.
Launched last year, the first series of Green calculators made from recycled Canon copier materials – including printing, desktop and award-nominated handheld models – received global acclaim.
New models to the range in 2009, the LS-120TSG and F-502G use 100 per cent recycled plastic for their front and back covers. In addition, the F-502G features a hard cover to protect it while being carried around – this is also made from 100 per cent recycled Canon copier plastic.
By using materials sourced from recycled Canon copiers, quality, durability and sustainability is assured. Both models feature replaceable batteries and Auto-power Off, lengthening the life of the calculator and minimising waste. The LS-120TSG also uses solar-power to further reduce energy consumption.
“Offering products with less environmental impact through innovative improvements in resource efficiency is a fundamental part of our commitment to harmonising business and sustainability interests,” said Sam Oomen, product manager, Canon Middle East.
The LS-120TSG is a mini-desktop calculator and joins the TS-1200TCG and HS-1200TCG in the green desktop display calculator range. It is ideal for any corporation with a green procurement policy.
The F-502G is positioned as the Green series’ first scientific calculator. Aimed at environmentally conscious teachers and students, it incorporates a range of useful mathematical and scientific features ideal for study.-TradeArabia News Service
