State-of-art feeding technology - streamline workflow

In the “Manual Feed Mode”, the fi-8250U scans copy forms and passports or booklets up to thicknesses of 7 mm with the carrier sheet. Precise multi-feed detection on a wide range of documents like plastic cards and documents with attachments, enable continual scanning with the same profiles. In addition, the “Automatic Separation Control” optimizes paper feed to match the number of sheets loaded, preventing interruptions. “Image Monitoring” also performs checks, real- time, for image skews, and provides enhanced paper protection.

Optimized high-quality images

The fi-8250 U comes with “PFU Clear Image Capture”, a unique and dedicated image correction technology that generates unparalleled, high-definition images while keeping power consumption to the minimum. Quality images with no missing edges can be ensured with the scanner’s Skew Reducer mechanism.

Better usability and flexibility for any environment

With combined use of the server software, “PaperStream NX Manager”, the fi-8250U supports operation modes to accommodate the user’s environment may that require work-sharing among teams with PCless colleagues or access from thin clients. With a built-in flatbed, it can scan fragile documents and thick books that are impossible to scan with ADF. Equipped with USB 3.2 connectivity, enabling high-speed data transfer.

Efficiency optimized, simplicity achieved, with expanded software functionalities

The scanner driver, PaperStream IP, comes with a simplified, user-friendly interface that provides icon visibility for easy setting configurations. Users can consistently achieve scanned outputs of correct orientations with the "Automatic Rotation" function, and store frequently scanned documents in specific formats using the "pattern matching" method. Efficiency with simplification brings users, a reduction to operation time as well - on frequent and routine operations like deleting blank pages, or correcting page orientations, just by following the optimal settings suggested by the “Settings Assistant” on the integrated PaperStream Capture software. Documents can be retrieved more efficiently with the "PDF keyword setting" function, instead of being constrained to file names alone.
