Scanner Adjusts Pressure and Monitors for Errors
With the fi-8170, users don’t need to be especially careful when loading up the scanner. That’s because the rollers inside the device are motorized and roll independently, including the drive rollers and brake wheel. Even the tension wheel operates independently, applying adequate pressure depending on how much paper is loaded and the thickness of the stack. This allows the all-wheel-drive scanner to make minor paper-handling corrections as needed to produce perfect scans.
It’s also loaded up with optical sensors that constantly monitor for potential errors. An audio sensor can detect when someone loads papers with staples, and halts the scan to prevent the device from damaging the document.
Accuracy and Color Precision Are Priorities
A dedicated hardware chip that automatically corrects common errors, such as blurred or uneven lines, rounds out the document protection suite. The Fujitsu fi-8170 can even scan passports, which are often used as IDs by international students, without taking any precautions first.
Portable scanners typically aren’t known for their extreme color accuracy, but the fi-8170 — with 4,913 color settings, instead of the usual 30 — can capture very fine details from documents and even photographs.
Fujitsu-fi 8170 Scans Up to 70 Pages Per Minute
The Fujitsu fi-8170 does all of this very quickly. In tests, it easily sustained more than 60 pages per minute with mixed document types, and nearly reached its maximum speed of 70 ppm during scans of more common and unified document types.
There is no need to be a scanning expert to use the Fujitsu fi-8170 like a pro. It’s a perfect tool for higher education settings, ready to accurately scan and digitize whatever students, professors or administrators can toss into its input tray.
