What are the key features of this sheet-fed scanner?

The Xerox DocuMate 4440 Document Scanner has a 12×7-inch footprint, and weighs 8 pounds. Designed with a a straight-through paper path, it allow scanning of business cards as well as ID cards and other plastic cards up to 1.3 mm thick. It scans papers of up to 8.5 by 38 inches and has ultrasonic double-feed recognition sensor to make sure that misfeeds are being detected. The scanner only scans the image/document with a scanning speed of 40 pages per minute, which is 15 ppm faster than average compared to most Sheet-fed Scanners.

This scanner is astonishingly a small unit where the input and output trays sort of enclosed around its main body and as you fold them out, the scanner’s footprint nearly doubles. It can be fed to up to 50 sheets from the top tray. It feeds down through the machine and exit onto a curved tray at the bottom. In the process, each page is scanned on both sides and two page images are produced from every double-sided page. Conveniently, its Visioneer OneTouch feature takes charge of your document and scans it with the ideal settings for resolution, color, duplex, auto-crop, auto-straighten, file format and then delivers it to virtually any application, folder or device at the touch of a button.
