A 50 sheet document feeder means large batches of documents can be scanned in one quick scan operation saving you more time. The DR-3010C can be attached to the Optional Flatbed Scanner Unit 101 via a USB cable, for scanning bound and fragile documents.

Misfeeds are quickly resolved thanks to the Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection system. You can handle anything from fragile documents to thick card and embossed media. It’s even possible to scan A3 documents in Folio mode: unique for a scanner of this type. Long paper scanning is also supported, with capability to scan documents up to 3 metres in length.

Environmentally friendly

The DR-3010C is over 50% more energy efficient than other similar scanners, and can even be set to turn on and off in sync with the PC it’s connected to.
