Scanners : Fujitsu

To help you have better understanding with regards to scanners I have provided a break down to what Fujitsu can offer.This is just to help you form trailing through all the pages on there websites and brochures.

Fujitsu have segmented there scanners into the following areas.

  • ScanSnap
  • Worksgroup
  • Departmental
  • Production
  • Network

ScanSnap Section

 Idea for home and the small business

This range generally covers the following specification

Resolution

All models within the range have an Output resolution: Up to 600 dpi

Generally this is a close up of the dots produced by an inkjet printer at draft quality. Dpi: is used to describe the resolution number of dots per inch.

You will find that up to a 600 dpi is more than adequate in all normal conditions

Speed

How fast does it scan?

Range of 16 to 25 ppm (pages per minute)  

For a general rule of thumb I would recommend that you should be looking at around 20 ppm

One sided (simplex)

Double sided (duplex) 

Grayscale Monochrome Colour

Color 150dpi, B&W 300dpi) : 8 pages per minute / 16 images per Color & Grayscale 300dpi, B&W 600dpi) :20 pages per minute / 40 images per minute.

Capacity of ADF: Up to 10/50 sheets (Automatic Document Feeder)

Interfaces: One network connection RJ45 10/100 base T

Interfaces: USB 2.0

(Integrated 10/100 Base-T networking interface – usually called RJ45 in the context of … to run two network connections (or a network connection and two phone lines)

One of the main Points is that ScanSnap can scan directly to the computer’s hard drive with the capability of launching any PDF or JPEG based application to view the image.

The ScanSnap comes with custom software for easily creating searchable PDFs, but does not work with other scanning applications.
