U-turn Scan for continuous scanning with an A4 size footprint

ScanSnap iX1300 has achieved a revolutionary climax on practical use of space while boosting a scan speed of 30 pages per minute. Equipped with a new ADF*4 mechanism to eject scanned paper from the top, the iX1300 maintains a required space of almost equivalent to an A4 sized document on entire scanning process. Perform continuous scan or load a batch scan (20 pages at a time), and enjoy scanning at a speed of 30 pages per minute.

Return Scan, for plastic cards, receipts, bi-folded A3 documents

Return Scan feeds and ejects documents from the front. A wide variety of documents, such as folded papers, business cards, receipts, photos, and postcards; can be fed individually, or on batch basis, even with the cover closed. Ideal for those random needs for on-the-spot scans arising from time to time or even daily, to speedily store business cards or organize photos. Never worry about missing a document at feed or taking up too much time, as the Return Scan reads documents in 5 seconds (A4 size, color, duplex, 200/300dpi).

Ready to use with a single action on opening the cover

ScanSnap iX1300 powers ON, with its extension ready for use on opening the cover. Just set the documents, press the Scan button and you are on your way with your scanning. The stacker starts extending as scanning is initiated and returns to its initial state once scanning is completed, so that users can start loading subsequent batches easily. To use Return Scan, simply set the document at the front feed, to turn ON the power. High quality data will be automatically generated with the automatic functions such as Blank Page Removal and Automatic Rotation, saving time and effort on after scan operations.
