Epson Introduces its Fastest Workgroup Scanners to Date
Offering “blazing-fast speeds for the demanding office environment,” Epson’s first 85 ppm/170 ipm1 document scanner, the DS-970 offers a peak daily duty cycle of up to 9,000 sheets2, while the new DS-870 scans as fast as 65 ppm/130 ipm1 with a peak daily duty cycle of up to 7,000 sheets3.
Featuring a 100-page Automatic Document Feeder for high-volume batch scanning, the DS-970 and DS-870 help users scan, organize and upload a variety of documents, including mixed stacks of business and ID cards, long documents and folded pages4 up to 11″ x 17″.
The scanners feature advanced paper feed-technology, which includes Slow Speed Mode for delicate sheets, Double-Feed Detection, and Paper Protection to prevent misfeeds. With the included OCR and Document Capture software, as well as compatibility with both Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac, users can create searchable PDFs, store and share their work to online storage accounts such as Evernote, Microsoft SharePoint, and Google Drive5. Both models are also said to feature a compact, space-saving footprint
Sean Gunduz, group product manager, Scanners, Epson America, commented: “We are proud to introduce our first 85-ppm document scanner designed for high-volume workgroups. As one of the fastest growing document scanner brands in North America6, we are committed to providing affordable and reliable world-class scanning solutions for the commercial document-scanning market.”
Equipped with an LCD screen for easy navigation and mode selection, the DS-970 and DS-870 come with TWAIN and ISIS scan drivers for integration with existing third-party document management software.
Users can choose from the optional Network Interface Unit to share the scanner across a network, or optional Flatbed Dock to connect to a compatible Epson photo scanner for scanning photos, passports, or bound materials7.
The Epson DS-970 (MSRP $1,499) and DS-870 (MSRP $999) are available through authorized CaptureProS resellers starting in February. Both scanners include a three-year limited warranty with an Advance Exchange program featuring Next-Business-Day Replacement.
