PFU Introduces fi-7300NX, the New Image Scanner That Supports Web Systems
Connects directly to client systems to improve business efficiency
Yokohama, Japan, September 4, 2018 - PFU Limited, a subsidiary of Fujitsu Ltd., the world's leading scanner manufacturer, today announced the launch of the fi-7300NX, an innovative image scanner that connects directly to client systems, as the newest image scanner for business use in the fi Series*1 lineup.
In recent years, new developments in the IT industry have caused a dramatic shift from PC-based systems to environments using smart devices and thin clients. Business applications have also seen transitions from client-server model applications to those utilizing the web, smart devices, cloud, and Robotic Process Automation. With increasing demand for products to adapt flexibly to such trends, "We would like to introduce the fi-7300NX to support cloud and web systems with PaperStream NX Manager, its all-new server software. This new addition will be made to the lineup for decentralized data entry services*2 in the fi Series. The fi-7300NX will provide stable operating and development environments, and will assist in making businesses more efficient by greatly decreasing installation*3 and operation costs," said Corporate Vice President & President, Document & Imaging Business Group, Yasunori Miyauchi, PFU Limited.
Seamless integration into business systems
Users can begin scanning from the scanner’s touch screen or from various applications on smart devices to suit all business needs. SDK utilization allows direct data transfer to client-unique web systems, authentication, and scan requests. Strong data encryption also enables constantly secure data transfer.
- Scan without the computer
With the fi-7300NX, users can now scan and save documents without any requirement for a local computer. Users simply login to the scanner using NFC*4 authentication and select from their personalized job menus on the fi-7300NX’s touch screen. Customized job menus are displayed with user authentication, and ensure efficient and secure decentralized data entry is possible for each user.
- Scan from your smart device to any business platform
The new PaperStream NX Manager allows users to scan from mobile or web applications opened up on smart devices or thin client terminals. Seamless integration into client systems enables the use of a variety of devices for scanning operations.
- 3 types of SDK to suit user environments
The PaperStream NX Manager SDK is provided to enable integration with various client systems and applications. Developers can utilize suitable SDK needed for their clients who want to use their own systems.
Reduce operating costs with centralized management
The user authentication function, customized job menus for each user, and other scan settings are all centrally managed with PaperStream NX Manager and Scanner Central Admin. With the fi-7300NX’s server software, there is no need for a conventional single client computer to control the scanner. This reduces the total burden of installation, expansion, operation, and management.
- Manage jobs and process images with PaperStream NX Manager
PaperStream NX Manager carries out user authentication, job management, image processing of scanned data, and data output for the fi-7300NX. PaperStream NX Manager allows automatic sharing of authentication methods and job settings to up to 1,000 fi-7300NX scanners.
- Monitor scanner operation with Scanner Central Admin
Scanner Central Admin specializes in centralized management of multiple scanners, including batch updates of scanner settings and firmware, as well as monitoring of errors and consumables status on up to 1,000 scanners per server.
- Consistent, high-speed scanning
Inheriting the fi Series legacy of high-speed, consistent paper feeding, the fi-7300NX boasts a speed of 60 ppm/120 ipm for A4 size documents*5. Documents folded in half and carbon-copy sales slips are also an ease to scan with Manual Feed Mode. As the first standalone scanner in the world*6 to support Wi-Fi in the 5 GHz bandwidth*7, the fi-7300NX reduces potential stress from waiting time of data transfer.
- 4.3 inch touch screen
The touch screen enables users to intuitively perform operations such as scanning and verifying data as thumbnails. The screen also displays messages or instructions with illustrations to provide guidance to users.
- Suitable operation methods for your environments
The fi-7300NX introduces PaperStream IP Net, the PaperStream IP scanner driver for Fujitsu image scanners with network connectivity. Connection without the USB cable allows the scanner to be positioned wherever needed, to improve user productivity, reduce interruptions, and make more room for more frequently used equipment. Both advanced driver and software, PaperStream IP and PaperStream Capture, enable users to fully enjoy simple scanning operations and high quality images, like our other Fujitsu image scanners.
