    Detailed Features

    Combining unique design and innovative features, the DR-C125 offers affordable scanning without compromising on performance. Its vertical J-Path transport system means the DR-C125 has the smallest footprint in its class. The DR-C125 can be placed directly abutting a rear wall or on a counter-top where space is limited. Thick or embossed cards can be scanned with ease thanks to a straight through paper path option that makes the DR-C125 extremely versatile.

    The DR-C125 is packed with innovative features to help make the scanning process easier for users. CaptureOnTouch incorporates a Full Auto Mode function that automatically applies the best settings based on document content. With simple one-touch scanning, operation complicated tasks can now be completed in a few seconds.
