Scroll through pre-defined jobs easily using the intuituve panel and get your documents to the right place in just a few presses of a button.

Efficient document processing

Stay in control of the document process with a scanner capable of scanning a wide range of media from 27gsm to 413gsm and a long paper scanning mode up to 6096mm. Slow mode decreases document friction by reducing the speed of the rollers, making it easier to capture fragile or damaged documents, without increasing file sizes. The Active Separation Roller System prevent document double feeds, ensuring that every piece of paper gets scanned, and the Double Feed Detection Skip (DFDS) function means you can scan difficult media like envelopes or documents with post-it notes.
