Network Scanner:

Offering true network capability with no need to install software at multiple location points, Brother Network scanners allow documents to be scanned directly from the machine to multiple devices. With one simple press of a button or Touchscreen, scans can be quickly and easily shared across teams, departments and offices; improving workflow efficiency and increasing productivity.

Colour Touchscreen:

Using the colour touchscreen, scanned documents can be sent instantly to pre-selected destinations for quick and simple scanning, saving time and staff training. Routine scan jobs can be pre-configured more quickly and with fewer steps, improving workflow efficiency. Direct scanning to commonly used locations such as a departmental folder, email recipient or OCR software means routine tasks can be performed quickly and simply. This reduces the need for staff training and speeds up everyday workflow.

Near Field Communications (NFC):

NFC enables close proximity wireless communication between your Brother scanner and an NFC device. This NFC capability automatically establishes a direct connection, allowing instant scanning without having to connect to a network, for simple and timely workflow in and around the office to keep your business moving. Give customers, visitors or colleagues quick temporary access to a Brother scanner without the need to obtain passwords or enter login credentials, which can be time consuming and complicated.

Brother Solutions Interface (BSI):

BSI is a software interface that enables third-party developers to build customer solutions for, or to integrate with, Brother devices. Customised menus and screens can be created to provide new capabilities – helping customers improve operations as well as reducing costs, waste and risk.

Secure Function Lock (SFL):

SFL is a security function which can disable or enable configuration settings and allow user restrictions to be put in place. It also has a public mode which allows functions to be left unrestricted. SFL allows administrators to restrict scanner settings per user, allowing for function management and improve security.

Scan to USB Host:

The scan to USB Host feature allows the connection of an external storage flash drive up to 64GB.

Professional Paper Handling:

Powerful, professional scanners, but still desktop friendly, Brother Scanners can handle a range of media weights, using a slider output tray to neatly capture paper fed through the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Our wide document stoppers offer expert stack performance, making scanned paper collection easy and reducing scan downtime. The trays are angled to encounter less paper resistance so paper can glide more easily and stack smoothly to reduce paper folds. These small but precise engineering qualities are what make Brother a dedicated specialist in the scanner field.

Multifeed Detection:

This system uses sound waves to identify potential misfeeds. The paper pathway is automatically suspended and the user alerted if an irregular signal is detected, reducing the risk of damaged documents and lost data.

Advanced Reverse Roller System:

This advanced system manages incoming bulk paper jobs so only one sheet is processed at a time, for outstanding reliability when scanning a variety of document types and weights.

Advanced Image Processing Features:

The built-in range of powerful scanning tools intuitively prepare and clean scanned files, improving the quality of the scanned image for storing, editing, sharing and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) needs. This results in less ink wastage when documents are printed, reduces file sizes for sharing and generates clearly legible articles when reading. This means less time spent manually preparing and correcting documents and more time spent focusing on the core of your business.
