The fast, compact and intuitive fi-7160 desktop scanner from Fujitsu comes well equipped to seamlessly process your documents into the digital world. Increase productivity/collaboration/customer satisfaction, meet legal and regulatory obligations and disaster recovery objectives, save space and money and address sustainability management.
The fi-7160 comes equipped with iSOP (Intelligent Sonic Paper Protection); which detects changes in the acoustic noise generated by paper, enhances the paper feeding process and reduces the risk of having documents damaged by sensing the audible noise of paper movements and stopping the feeding of sheets when an irregular noise is encountered. Additionally it features innovatively developed hardware and software to help augment your daily routines and boost your organization’s efficiency.
The fi-7160 is designed to support document capture routines either for knowledge workers or for small workgroups. Easy to set up, use and maintain this robust scanner is built on years of solid reputation and comes bundled with a user friendly and intuitive scanner driver PaperStream IP along with batch scanning automation and enhancement software PaperStream Capture.
Integrated within the operating panel an LCD shows useful information such as current scanner settings, operating status and a paper counter.
Scanner Central Admin software enable this and other Fujitsu scanners to be managed and maintained from a single location to minimize scanner downtime anywhere on the global system.
Built on class leading and proven feeding capabilities help ensure that the speedy scanning of mixed batches at the desktop is a breeze (the fi-7160 can scan at 60 double sided pages per minute) and helps minimize the pre-processing time required. Should you be scanning mixed batches of differing thicknesses of documents then the “skew reducer” reduces the physical skew that documents encounter through the paper path ensuring that each document is captured with the utmost precision and simplicity.
The fi-7160 additionally make use of an ultrasonic sensor that accurately detects multifeed errors where two or more sheets are fed through the scanner at once plus the Intelligent Multifeed Function allows document scan parameters to be applied which enables the sensors to be set up to help identify and subsequently ignore attachments such as sticky notes or items with a photo attached that would otherwise cause disruptions to the scanning process.
Bundled with the fi-7160 scanner is PaperStream IP and PaperStream Capture, which are a genuinely developed TWAIN and ISIS scanner driver and document capture software application, designed for enhanced image processing and instant batch scanning.
Critical for perfect results: the interplay between hard- and software
Both hardware and software are equally important in the Fujitsu fi-7160 scanner. The newly developed PaperStream IP driver and image processing middleware combined with the PaperStream Capture software offer simplified and automated batch scanning routines that intelligently convert batches of documents into predetermined work routines.
iSOP – “senses” the feeding process
In addition to the industry leading paper protection feature of the previous generations, the new model introduces a premium feature into a desktop scanner – the intelligent Sonic Paper Protection mechanism iSOP. This is an acoustic noise sensor module that monitors the feeding process. It detects the sound emission of every document, recognizing any sound indicating an irregularity and immediately stops the paper feed motion, saving users’ time and protecting important and valuable originals.
Top results, quickly and reliably
This new fi series model offers USB 3.0 support and is designed to make end-to-end scanning processes faster. The fi-7160 model processes up to 60 sheets/120 pages per minute (A4, color, duplex, 300 dpi). Additional functions also help deliver top results. For example, it is easy to scan a mixed batch containing sheets of different sizes and thicknesses. The scanner mechanically straightens any documents that may have been fed askew and PaperStream IP also automatically corrects any remaining irregularities. An ultrasonic sensor recognizes whether two or more sheets have fed in and issues an error message. Even sticky notes do not delay the workflow as the system recognizes them automatically. Further, user support is provided through the scanners’ LCD panel which provides straightforward operation flows and allows users to select profiles directly on the device, check the quantity of scanned documents or review any status messages.
Scanner central administration lowers operating costs
The scanner central administration function allows management of all of the new fi Series scanners efficiently. For example, administrators can determine scan profiles, install drivers applications with ease and perform updates centrally. Error messages or maintenance status updates also appear in the central management functions. The result is a much lower TotalCost of Ownership (TCO).
PaperStream IP – top-quality image processing and enhancement
PaperStream IP represents a totally new type of driver middleware. Advanced black and white and color processing automatically converts every document into an image of extraordinary quality. Users need not worry about individual scanning parameters but are able to adjust any parameter to suit their needs to specific jobs. PaperStream IP prepares digitized data for subsequent processing such as OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and connects with common scanning applications that would regularly control the scanner via either the TWAIN or ISIS interface. PaperStream IP also provides a unique triple stream capability.
PaperStream Capture – optimizes batch scanning
PaperStream Capture allows users to fine-tune their document work flow (including batches) at every step. Once users have scanned a batch they can instantly release it to the defined destination or place it into a queue for subsequent validation and additional processing. The software also brings flexibility when users need to add more documents to an existing batch at a later point in time: newly scanned documents of the same class or belonging to the same logical batch can be appended without the need to re-scan the entire set. Users of ECM (Enterprise Content Management) and DMS (Document Management System) applications can use PaperStream Capture as a versatile onramp for document batches being fed into their productivity applications with less effort and offering better quality performance.
ScanSnap Manager for fi Series – universal everyday use
In addition to offering full-featured document capture and batch processing, the fi Series is also on hand for more ad-hoc daily tasks through the ScanSnap Manager for fi Series. This allows users to undertake individual tasks at their desks such as Scan-to-PDF, Scan-to-Email or Scan-to-Word.
