The scanner features Auto Color Detection, and users can pre-program repetitive tasks, as well as send information simultaneously to a variety of locations, including e-mail, shared folders, and FTP servers.

It also features a larger color LCD screen from the device’s predecessor (10.1 inches), that can be used to preview scanned documents to help ensure that images were captured correctly. The device includes three USB ports for enabling customers to connect the necessary CAC/PIV-compliant card reader.

The USB ports also provide users with the ability to connect additional USB peripherals such as keyboard and mouse. It also features a built-in Kensington lock slot to help protect the device itself.
