Brother ADS-1200 Datasheet Explained
This is a super-fast scanner capable of doing 50images per minute as opposed to the average 30IPM by products of similar price.
It has a scanning area of A4 and will scan upto 10-15% larger than A4. This means it will accept maximum document size of 8.5inx34in (215x863mm) Built with contact Image sensor requiring the document to touch the scanning glass for perfect scan, the device produces a high quality images given its 600dpi resolution.
In terms of interface compatibilities, the device has TWAI, WIA, ICA and SANE interfaces that is more or less similar to other portable scanners of same price.
This scanner allows the use of plain paper, thin paper, thick paper, thicket paper, recycled paper, business cards and plastic cards with thickness ranging from 35-270 gsm.
However, those who prefer wireless connectivity will not like this scanner since it only provides for micro USB 3.0 as opposed to products of similar price that allow USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and wireless 802.11 b/g/n connectivity.
Features for Productivity
Due to its duplex scanning capabilities, this device is able to scan both sides of a document at the same time thus enhancing productivity and reducing time and effort needed.
It is amongst the 70% of portable scanners with similar price that has automatic color detection capabilities hence you can scan without any color preset and the device and software decides how the document should be scanned.
The scanner can also detect the document layout and automatically rotate the image to the applicable orientation.
However, this scanner cannot automatically crop images to preferred size since it has no automatic image cropping functionality.
The above limitation is all the same compensated by the device’s capability to clear and optimize image background and emphasize the sharpness of the scanned image, thanks to its background removal feature.
Quality of images
The scanner can automatically deskew the images that got scanned with misalignment due to feed roller faults or operator’s failure to properly align the source document.
The machine will also improve the image quality by removing the punch holes, a feature the only 50% of similar priced scanners have.
It has OCR included hence it can generate searchable documents from the scanned image in formats such as PDF or word, Excel files and e-books.
