Equipped with a Dual Path Mechanism, the device comes with Return Scan, perfect for scanning passports and ID cards and U-turn Scan, suitable for continuous scanning. Return scan allows documents up to 5mm thick, ideal for plastic cards and passports, and does not need a carrier sheet.

Other features like automatic skew correction ensures that no detail is missed, even if the documents are roughly set on the scanner itself. It can also smartly detects the thickness and condition of the document to be scanned. Additionally, the PaperStream software can detect and extract information for efficient data entry. It also automatically switches to the appropriate path depending on the location that documents are loaded so that users can complete scanning a mixed batch of documents at once without any interruptions to switch the paths on the scanner or profile settings in the software.
