Specifically designed to partner Canon imageFORMULA scanners, the compact and lightweight FSU102 enables users to capture images from both devices in one operation - using the same software driver interface. As the ADF and FSU102 work together, users are able to combine several documents, from both sources, and create a single file – improving productivity for even complex workflows.

Alongside seamless scanning, the FSU102 further enhances efficiency by delivering scans in record time. A4 page scanning takes less than three seconds in grayscale and under four seconds in colour. From A4 documents down to smaller items, such as passports, all materials can be captured quickly and easily, allowing work to be completed in a faster timeframe.

The FSU102 enables users to scan bound documents, books and fragile media (up to A4) swiftly and simply.

Harnessing Canon’s world renowned image quality, the FSU102 delivers high resolution scanning to ensure crisp detail and perfect accuracy. As well as Auto Colour Detection, Auto Resize and Text Orientation Recognition, the device offers impressive image processing features including Auto Resolution, 2D Code module compatibility, Background Smoothing, Notch Removal and Dot Eraser.

Optimal energy efficiency is ensured by an all new CIS sensor and the addition of an LED light source; under which the scanner can run under 7W while in full operation and less than 1.7W in sleep mode.

Tim Brosnihan, Product Marketing Manager at Canon Europe comments: “The new Flatbed Scanner Unit 102 has been designed to provide customers with best-in-class choice and flexibility. When combined with Canon’s sheet-fed scanners, it enables businesses to combine high-speed batch scanning with the ability to capture bound materials, such as books, magazines, and newspaper clippings. The devices work together seamlessly and deliver a great range of enhanced features to boost productivity and convenience. The Flatbed Scanner Unit 102 drives improved value alongside the highest image accuracy and quality synonymous with Canon.”

The Canon FSU102 will be available through Canon sales offices and selected distributors across Europe in April 2017.
