First, let's scan the document printed on both sides of A4 copy paper.

Adjust the slide bar of the main unit to the 'A4' position and load the paper.

Touch 'Scan' on the touch panel of the main unit to start scanning.

You can check what was scanned from ScanSnap Home. When I checked the column on the right side, the manuscript type was correctly determined to be 'document', and the title was automatically added. If you double-click the scanned document in the center of the screen ...

The viewer opens and you can view the scanned document. As you can see in the left column, both sides of the document are properly scanned.

The ScanSnap iX1600 automatically determines the type of scanned document into four types: 'document', 'business card', 'receipt', and 'photograph'. Documents printed on A4 paper and photos printed on L-size paper. I prepared an ordinary business card and receipt and tried to see how accurate it was.

Set the copy paper and photo, and set the business card and receipt according to the guide.

◆ 3: A movie that I actually used
You can check how it is actually scanning from the following movie. A total of 20 sheets of copy paper, L-size paper, business cards, and receipts are scanned in about 30 seconds. Approximately, it is as per the specification that 40 sheets can be scanned in 1 minute.

The ScanSnap iX1600 finishes scanning in about 30 seconds, while the ScanSnap iX1500 takes about 40 seconds to complete the scan.
