About imageFORMULA ScanFront 400

The Canon imageFormula ScanFront 400 it is a "networked" scanner that has no USB port for linking directly to a single COMPUTER, though it does have three USB 2.0 ports for attaching peripherals, such as a mouse, keyboard, and thumb drive. It appears like other versions in the ScanFront family, with a control board including a touch display that acts as an interface to a full-blown tablet-like os. And, like a few other Canon record scanners we've evaluated, it conserves to picture PDF and also searchable PDF layouts much faster compared to many competitors.

With both the input and also the result trays fully prolonged, the ScanFront 400 doubles in elevation and also triples extensive, yet is still little sufficient to fit easily on most desktops. Like the HP ScanJet 5000 and also the Epson DS-860, the ScanFront 400's everyday task cycle is 6,000 scans each day; the Canon DR-M160II's is 7,000 scans. Furthermore, the ScanFront 400's ADF holds only 60 sheets (like the DR-M160II's), whereas the ScanJet 5000 as well as DS-860 both have 80-sheet ADFs. Connectivity contains a sole Gigabit Ethernet port and also, as pointed out, there are three USB ports for linking peripherals. With a keyboard as well as computer mouse attached, operating the ScanFront 400 is just like making use of a Windows COMPUTER or Mac.

Words ScanFront in this scanner's name describes the tablet-like user interface discussed earlier, which is accessed by means of the 10.1-inch touch screen on the system's front. The residence display contains 6 destination symbols (Email, FTP, Fax, Shared folder, USB memory, as well as Printer) that occupy the majority of the appropriate side of the display. A list of management tasks as well as navigation alternatives, such as Manager Setup, Individual Setups, as well as Home, resides left wing. The choices offered from this control are extensive sufficient to be somewhat made complex. You can develop task (or account) buttons for every user that make using the ScanFront 400 rather straightforward. The ScanFront 400 sustains both administrative (public) as well as customer (exclusive) personal digital assistant for preconfigured one-touch scans with synchronised several destinations, and you can specify each individual's opportunities separately-- all from the control board. Other safety and security functions include PDF file encryption, SSL (HTTPS) interactions over the network and the Net, as well as audit path logging for monitoring activity.

Arrangement is complicated enough to need some understanding of computer system identifying and course conventions, as well as some networking savvy as a whole. The ScanFront 400 comes with a thick hard-copy handbook, but unfortunately it covers an older version of the OS compared to the one installed on the review unit I obtained. That left me browsing the interface for the network settings up until I discovered an updated variation of the guidebook on the bundled CD. Once I reached the ideal location, going into the host name, path, username, as well as password was straightforward enough. However after several attempts, the ScanFront management program I mounted on the testbed COMPUTER still could not attach to the scanner, which left only one selection-- to call technology support.

A service technician responded to as soon as possible, yet he really did not appear accustomed to the ScanFront 400's OS. He left me on hold while he contacted colleagues. After some time, the professional returned and also revealed me how you can turn on a crucial setup-- Enable remote operation-- embedded a couple of layers deep in the interface (UI). When I asked why this alternative was switched off by default, he commented that it was for safety. That's penalty, yet the step of switching on remote access was not mentioned in the arrangement treatment laid out in either the old or brand-new guidebook. Regardless, the testbed PC can finally link to the scanner, allowing me to access it over the Ethernet connect with Canon's ScanFront Administrative Device for the SF400, the only program that includes this scanner.
