Fujitsu Australia has launched its latest range of high-speed A4 image scanners.
The fi-7180 and fi-7280 further automate the tasks of digitising business data.
The main features include new smart paper protection functions, better image and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and data capture, 33 percent faster performance and 60 percent greater document batch capacity.
Positioned as successors to the highly acclaimed fi-6140Z and fi-6240Z in the decentralised data capture market1, the new models are more compact and improve operator productivity, according to Fujitsu.
Features include scan noise detection technology.
This allows the scanner to ‘listen’ to the flow of paper through the device, warning the operator and stopping the scan before paper is damaged.
In addition software enhancements and paper skew reduction technologies maintain high speed processing even when documents in a batch are of different thicknesses. The results are scanning of up 80 documents per minute in batches of up to 80 documents at a time, with excellent data capture quality and OCR conversion.
The main productivity features include faster start-up times, improved by 80 per cent scanning speeds of 80ppm/160ipm, 300dpi colour loading capacity of 80 document batches USB 3.0 support fail-safe high-speed scanning mechanisms making this new series the fastest in its class2.
In addition to the high-end models, two new standard models are also available: fi-7160 and fi-7260 provide reduced cost options that operate at 60ppm/120ipm 300dpi colour, for excellent cost performance in locations with reduced scanning needs.
Fujitsu business scanners are available from distributor Proscan (proscan.com.au) and other resellers.
The decentralised capture (also known as distributed scanning) describes the digitisation of documents at multiple physically separate locations such as branch offices, reception counters and teller windows. This is compared to centralised scanning, where all documents are digitised at a single location.
Based on Fujitsu’s investigation of A4 Auto Document Feeder (ADF) document scanners will cost between $US1500 - $3999. and are available now.
