The fi-7480 is easy to set up, use and maintain and comes bundled with a user friendly and intuitive scanner driver PaperStream IP along with batch scanning automation and enhancement software PaperStream Capture. A4 landscape scanning speeds in both colour or black and white at up to 300 dpi is 80 pages per minute or 160 images per minute through the 100 page capacity ADF. The fi-7480 can scan a huge variety of material from plastic cards to booklets to even folded A1 in size.
The fi-7480 scanner comes with a unique paper protection function that is based on acoustic sensors; iSOP (Intelligent Sonic Paper Protection), iSOP reduces the risk of having documents damaged by sensing the audible noise of paper movements and stopping the feeding of sheets when an irregular noise is encountered.
The scanner additionally makes use of an ultrasonic sensor that accurately detects multifeed errors where two or more sheets are fed through the scanner at once plus intelligent multifeed function that is designed for documents that intentionally feature paper attachments of defined sizes or locations such as sticky notes or photos. The scanner can automatically recognise the location of the attachment and will then exclude that zone from triggering alert conditions.
Skew Reducer helps ensure straight paper feeding, should you be scanning mixed batches of differing thicknesses of documents then the ''skew reducer'' eliminates the risk of physical skew being carried over from one sheet in a mixed batch to the next ensuring that each document is captured with the utmost precision and simplicity. Multi-segmented pick rollers that rotate independently ensure that if a document goes through skewed then this will not affect the alignment of the next document.
Integrated within the operating panel a backlight enhanced LCD shows useful information such as current scanner settings, operating status and a paper counter, in addition he fi-7480 comes with Scanner Central Admin tools that includes functions that system administrators can use to manage the installation and operation of multiple scanners, monitor operation status and update drivers and software from one location. This ability dramatically reduces the cost and work that goes into setting up, operating and maintaining many scanners in an organisation and also in expanding the scanner network to multiple locations.
The fi-7480 comes bundled with PaperStream IP, an integrated scanner driver and image enhancement module that is built on TWAIN/ISIS standards offering user friendly operability, intuitive high quality image creation and real time processing that will benefit post scan routines like OCR. PaperStream Capture enhances the document capture process from adjusting scanning settings to performing batch scanning, verifying data and releasing to directories, repositories or subsequent process routines. Users can complete data capture tasks easily with the extremely user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). Moving scanned batches into a queue for later retrieval is possible as well.
