Exceptional Document Handling

The SmartOffice PS406U features one of the most advanced document feeding and separation system in the industry. This system allows the SmartOffice PS406U to scan mixed batches of varying paper sizes and weights. Able to handle everything from business cards to rigid ID cards and documents, the SmartOffice PS406U easily scans both sides of one sheet in just one pass. The automatic document feeder (ADF) is also robust enough to feed up to three hard cards continuously or an embossed card up to 1.2 mm in thickness.

Exceptional Productivity

Create searchable PDFs at the touch of a button. Single Touch scanning allows you to define 9 different scanning functions that can all be accessed by simply pressing a button. In addition to Searchable PDF, you can transform your paper documents into editable Microsoft Office document formats or common image formats such as JPG and TIFF. Industry standard TWAIN, ISIS and WIA drivers ensure compatibility with thousands of image enabled applications.

Exceptional Reliability

The 100 sheet feed tray along with a daily duty cycle of 4000 pages means that the SmartOffice PS406U is a scanner that is designed to scan documents every day, all day long.

Turn the ultrasonic sensor on to prevent double feeding of original documents during scanning, and off when scanning document with labels, sticky notes, or taped receipts. This innovative design prevents double feeding and effectively scans documents of different weights or thickness. Thanks to double-feed prevention, optimum reliability is assured even when scanning high volumes of documents.

Environmentally Responsible and Energy-Saving

The SmartOffice PS406U is environmentally responsible and easy to use at the same time thanks to its ENERY STAR certification, low power LED illumination technology and power-saving function.
