Features

An optimized user experience that keeps evolving

The ScanSnap iX1500 builds upon ScanSnap’s “One Button Simplicity”, taking efficiency to a new level.

Even more intuitive usage achieved by simple operation

You can complete processes from scanning to data utilization with just “one touch” of the 4.3 inch touch screen. Basic tasks such as setup and Wi-Fi configuration, checking scanning statuses and choosing save-to destinations are easy even for first-time users with the touch screen’s easily understandable icon simplicity. Up to 30 pre-configured profiles can be made, optimizing scan workflow.

Profile icon examples

  • Share documents
  • Attach with email
  • Manage business trip expenses
  • Create photo album

Share your ScanSnap for everyone to use

A single unit can be shared with company colleagues and family members with software licenses* for multiple accounts. Since different icon colors can be selected for each user, users can easily tell their profile icons apart from those of other users.

* It comes with multiple software licenses: 4 for ScanSnap Home, 4 for ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap™ and 1 for Nuance (Win/Mac). Additional licenses may be purchased for ScanSnap Home.

Usability more refined for every user

Designed for ultimate ease of use, the iX1500 transforms all the paper surrounding you with valuable information and adds more productivity to your lifestyle.

Refined and aesthetic form

The scanner’s adaptable and aesthetic design enables it to blend into any space, so it can stay where it is used the most, your office, living room or study room.

Create files quickly

Simply open the document chute and ScanSnap is ready to go. Scan single and double sided documents with ease at a speedy 30 sheets per minute*1. When choosing “Fast” startup*2, you can start scanning even faster.

*1 Image quality: Best mode (color/grayscale at 300 dpi; B&W at 600 dpi).
*2 Power consumption increases with “Fast” startup.

Scan any document

Scan documents larger than the typical A4 size that need to be folded in half, envelopes and much more with Manual Scan Mode. Documents that are typically difficult to scan in Normal Scan Mode can now be captured without any issues.

Effortlessly scan small documents with the Receipt Guide. No need to be concerned about fixing receipts and business cards that tend to curl or skew. Designed to be a comfortable fit even when the cover is closed, it dramatically reduces the handling of documents before hitting the scan button.

Versatile paper handling

With professional grade feeding technology and ultrasonic sensors, the iX1500 handles multi-page documents with ease, and can additionally detect and alert you of multi-feeding errors.

Have images clean all the time

Receive notifications on the touch screen whenever Dust Detection spots dust that may result in streaked images. Maintenance notification beforehand enables you to reduce the hassle of time-consuming rescans.

Even if streaks happen to appear on scanned images, Streak Reduction function removes them to produce clean images.

Scan anywhere you want whenever you want
