Epson Australia Launches Its Fastest-ever Workgroup Scanners

SYDNEY, 27 August 2019 – Epson Australia has expanded its workgroup document scanner portfolio with the new WorkForce DS-970 and DS-870, its fastest-ever colour duplex document scanners designed for busy and high-volume offices of any size.

Offering blazing-fast speeds for the demanding office environment, Epson’s first 85 ppm/170 ipm document scanner, the DS-970 offers a peak daily duty cycle of up to 9,000 sheets, while the new DS-870 scans as fast as 65 ppm/130 ipm with a peak daily duty cycle of up to 7,000 sheets.

Featuring a 100-page Automatic Document Feeder for high-volume batch scanning, the versatile DS-970 and DS-870 help professionals easily scan, organise and upload a variety of documents, including mixed stacks of business and ID cards, long documents and folded pages up to 11″ x 17″ (A3).

Using advanced paper feed technology which includes Slow Speed Mode for delicate sheets, Double-Feed Detection and Paper Protection to prevent misfeeds, the DS-970 and DS-870 allow the user to conveniently scan important documents hassle and worry-free. With the included OCR and powerful Document Capture software as well as compatibility with both Windows® and Mac®, users can create searchable PDFs, store and share their work to online storage accounts such as Evernote®, SharePoint® and Google DriveTM. Additionally, both models come with a compact, space-saving footprint, designed to easily fit within virtually any modern workspace.

Equipped with an LCD screen for easy navigation and mode selection, the DS-970 and DS-870 come with advanced TWAIN and ISIS® drivers for seamless integration with existing third-party document management software. With expanded versatility, users can choose from the optional Network Interface Unit to share the scanner across a network or optional Flatbed Dock to connect to a compatible Epson photo scanner for scanning photos, passports, or bound materials.

Both scanners include a three-year limited warranty.
