Epson high speed scanner also does it slow

Epson Australia has launched the WorkForce DS-780N scanner, an interactive sheet-fed touchscreen model with built-in networking. The DS-780N is designed for high-volume scanning, with a 100-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF), USB 3.0 compatibility, and very fast colour scanning speeds of 45ppm/90ipm at 300dpi.

The scanner also offers a “slow mode” for delicate documents, which Epson claims is an industry-first, based on its comparison to other sheet-fed scanners, within the speed range of 25ppm to 45ppm.

Double-feed detection skip also permits the scanning of items such as envelopes and documents with sticky notes attached. It also features an intuitive that makes scanning straightforward.

When installed as part of a scanner fleet, Epson’s Document Capture Pro software allows job, group, device and access protocols to be managed centrally.

The scanner allows user authentication via pin code, third-party IC card or user directory (LDAP), and the control panel is lockable to prevent tampering with the device. Pre-defined job profiles help ensure the correct task is selected, and scans are sent to the right locations.

The DS-780N will alert the administrator if it needs maintenance, and provides detailed usage reports showing clearly which devices are used most, and how many scans they’ve made, to allow effective fleet management.

The WorkForce DS-780N is available now for $A1,299.
