Fujitsu launches mobility-friendly scanner

Wi-Fi and USB 3.0 connectivity on new desktop device

Electronics vendor, Fujitsu Australia, has added to its ScanSnap line of document imaging scanners with the launch of the iX500 (FI-IX500).

According to Fujitsu, iX500 can create PDF files at up to 25 double-sided colour pages per minute at 300dpi, which is quoted as 25 per cent faster than its predecessor.

While the automatic document feeder (ADF) can be used with both Windows PC and Mac devices, it is built with a ‘GI’ processor which is equipped with a dual-core CPU-mounted processor supporting Wi-Fi and USB 3.0 interfaces. As a result, it has direct print capability which can be utilised through compatible Android and iOS smartphones and tablets using the ‘ScanSnap Connect’ app.

On the software end, iX500 has a customisable ScanSnap Quick Menu which appears after scanning. The menu provides users with ‘recommended’ applications based on frequently used functions and the type of document that has been scanned.

In addition, the ScanSnap Folder function replicates ScanSnap as a Windows folder which the user can open from their choice of software and web applications. This feature is only available to PC users.

iX500 also allows users to scan documents from Evernote, Google Docs, Dropbox, SugarSync, and Salesforce Chatter.

Other features include ScanSnap Manager, Scan-to Functions, business card scanning, and ScanSnap Organiser (PC only).

The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 has a RRP of $699 excluding GST. It is being distributed in Australia through Proscan.
