Battery powered scanner with Wi-Fi connectivity for the ultimate in portability!
The cross platform compatible ScanSnap iX100 brings the power and intuitiveness of the ScanSnap range of models to a compact and totally wireless format. Weighing just 400g the ScanSnap iX100 comes with a USB rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that is capable of up to 260 A4 scans on a full charge. Combined with an ability to scan either via a wireless network to PC workstations or mobile devices running the ScanSnap Connect Application this ScanSnap delivers a true ‘scan anytime scan anywhere potential’.
The ScanSnap iX100 can automatically detect Wi-Fi networks at home, in the office or on the go, it is only needed to be set up once after which any regularly visited network environment will be automatically detected. Alternatively with Direct Connect mode it is possible to scan wirelessly beyond an infrastructure network, simply download the ScanSnap Connect Application free of charge from the official application distribution services and then scan, save and distribute documents directly to an iPad, iPhone or Android device.
A multitude of everyday documents can be seamlessly processed by the iX100 at a speedy 5 seconds, whether it be business cards or receipts (check out the impressive dual scan functionality that allows you to scan small documents simultaneously), photos, thicker items like postcards, bills, everyday A4 documents or even A3 documents. Scan both sides of a folded A3 document one after the other and if an adjoining pattern is detected the bundled software will automatically join the 2 page images together.
The iX100 will automatically detect and scan in black and white or colour, will recognize the size of each document and scan accordingly, will detect and correct for skew and will show images in their proper orientation with blank pages removed. All these automatic functions help ensure that the first scan is the best scan and minimise operator involvement.
An inbuilt GI processor helps set the iX100 apart when it comes to scanning performance and reliability delivering an impressive feeding performance. Indeed scanning speeds are maintained even if the target device is not up to the pace or cabled connectivity is lacking, scanning via a Wi-Fi connection is made effortless and hassle free.
Scan your everyday documents from business card to A3 size (A3 is also possible with the use of an optional carrier sheet) and then view, file, edit or distribute your digitised documents.
The ScanSnap iX100 comes with a choice of paper paths, a straight paper path aids for the scanning of everyday documents and thick materials like post cards, business cards, and plastic ID or credit cards and a u-turn path helps facilitate the scanning process when space is at a premium or indeed when the Continuous Document Feeding function is activated. The Continuous Document Feeding function allows the insertion of pages one after another by detecting when a sheet enters and exits. Set the document face-up into the iX100 and push the Scan button, the iX100 will then proceed to scan the front side after which the page will exit from the top of the scanner if the paper path is set to U-turn, simply then re-insert the page without pressing the Scan button to scan the back side. After scanning has finished, press the Scan button to save the file.
Quick Menu Productivity
The Quick Menu allows you to quickly transition between different scanning intentions. Just press the scan button and choose what you want ScanSnap to do. QuickMenu has been additionally enhanced so that now it can be set up to display your ‘Favourite’ scanning destinations or ‘Recommend’ an application for example if you are scanning a business card it could ‘Recommend’ CardMinder.
