DS-760 and DS-860 offer up to 65 pages per minute
Epson America today announced the WorkForce DS-760 and WorkForce DS-860, Epson's fastest professional sheetfed document scanners. The new WorkForce scanners deliver scan speeds up to 65 ppm, improved paper-feed technology over predecessors, scan-to-cloud functionality, and compatibility with virtually all document-management software suites.
The WorkForce DS-760 and DS-860 are workgroup or departmental sheetfed scanners designed for a wide range of markets. The WorkForce DS-760 clocks in at 45 ppm and 90 ipm (images per minute) at 300 dpi; and the WorkForce DS-860 at 65 ppm and 130 ipm at 300 dpi -- Epson's fastest scanners to date.
For businesses with high-volume scanning requirements, the DS-760 and DS-860 allow scanning up to 4,500 and 6,000 sheets per day, respectively, and stack up to 80 pages in the built-in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Both scanners are equipped with ultrasonic double-feed detection technology to automatically stop the feed to avoid missing pages or jams. An optional network module is sold separately, allowing the pair to support up to 100 workstations.
The Epson WorkForce DS-760 will retail for $900, and WorkForce DS-860 will sell for $1,100. Both models will be available in March.
