    Epson WorkForce DS-520 A4 document scanner Product Description

    This 30ppm sheet-fed duplex scanner offers powerful imaging features and simple integration into your document management systems with Document Capture Pro solutions.

    High-speed scanner

    The DS-520 has a compact footprint and high-speed scanning of up to 30ppm / 60ipm, even at 300dpi in both colour and monochrome. This, combined with hardware JPEG compression, makes large scan jobs faster to process. With the optional Network Interface Unit, it is ideal for sharing across office and department networks.

    Document workflow

    Epson Document Capture Pro and Document Capture Pro Server make it easy to integrate this business scanner into your document management system, speeding up workflow and enabling you to capture, convert and distribute scanned information into your document repositories. In addition, barcode recognition and Zonal OCR helps automate large document processes, such as file naming and folder creation. It's easy to integrate thanks to TWAIN, ISIS and WIA driver support.


    Epson's scanning software offers a wide range of advanced document imaging features, including multi-document size detection, text enhancement and automatic de-skew to improve efficiency and increase productivity.

    Optional Network sharing

    Add the optional Network Interface Unit to easily integrate into your company environment. Combined with Document Capture Pro/Pro Server, the networked model increases employees productivity with customisable PushScan functions from the scanner panel such as scan-to Microsoft SharePointTM and cloud services.
