Fast Double-Sided Scanning

ix500-1500m4-20140529g

Typically, higher quality means lower performance, but the iX500 maintains a double sided scanning speed of up to 25 pages per minute even at 300 dpi in Color!


Built-in "GI" microprocessor

A dual-core CPU-mounted "GI" processor performs the intelligent image enhancement responsible for great looking images with dramatically faster results and more sophisticated connectivity:

  • Image processing: Automatic corrections and image output
  • Supports Wi-Fi:WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) wireless LAN (IEE802.11b/g/n)
  • Supports USB 3.0

Advanced Paper Feeding System

ix500-roller-20140529g

Inheriting the superior paper feeding technology of our professional-grade scanners, iX500 achieves exceptional feeding reliability using "Separation Roller" technology to minimize jams and multi-feeds.



Advanced Paper Detection

ScanSnap iX500 is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor that can be turned on to help operators avoid losing images. What's more, an interactive interface allows users to easily bypass intentional double-feed such as a taped-receipt on an expense report.
