Network Scanners

Offering true network capability without the need to install software at multiple location points, Brother Network scanners are able to scan documents straight from the machine to various devices. With one easy press of a button or Touchscreen*, scans can be quickly and effortlessly shared across teams and departments; improving workflow efficiency and increasing performance.

Colour Touchscreen

Using the colour touchscreen, scanned documents can be sent quickly to pre-selected devices for quick and straightforward scanning, saving time and staff training. Everyday scan jobs can be pre-configured promptly with less steps, therefore increasing workflow efficiency.

Direct scanning to preferred locations such as departmental folders, email recipients or OCR software means daily tasks can be completed quickly and simply. This reduces the demand for training and increases everyday workflow.

Near Field Communications (NFC)

NFC facilitates close proximity wireless communication between your Brother scanner and an NFC device.This NFC capability automatically establishes a direct connection, supporting instant scanning without having to connect to a Network, for straightforward and time sensitive workflow in and around the office to keep your business moving.

Give customers, visitors or colleagues temporary access to a Brother scanner without needing passwords or login credentials, which can be time consuming and problematic.

Brother Solutions Interface (BSI)

BSI is a software interface that facilitates third-party developers to build custom solutions for, or to integrate with, Brother Devices. Customised menus and screens can be built to produce new capabilities - helping customers develop operations as well as reducing costs, wastage and risk.

Secure Function Lock (SFL)

SFL is a security function which can disable or enable configuration settings and allow user restrictions to be applied. It also comes with a public mode which allows functions to be left unrestricted. SFL grants administrators to restrict scanner settings per user, allowing for function management and increased security.

Scan to USB Host

The scan to USB Host function provides the connection for an external storage flash drive up to 64 GB.

Professional Paper Handling

Brother scanners are impressive and professional, but still user-friendly. They can handle a range of media weights, using a wider output tray to cleanly capture paper fed through the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).

Our wide document stoppers offer excellent stack performance, making scanned paper collection quick and simple. The trays are also angled to encounter less paper resistance so paper can move smoothly and stack evenly to reduce paper folds. These small but definitive engineering qualities are what make Brother a committed specialist in the scanner field.

Multifeed Detection

This system uses sound waves to identify any possible misfeeds. The paper pathway is automatically suspended and the user is made aware if an irregular signal is noticed, helping to reduce the risk of damaged documents and lost data.

Advanced Reverse Roller System

This advanced system regulates incoming volume paper jobs so only one sheet is processed at a time, for exceptional reliability when scanning a different document types and weights.

Advanced Image Processing Features

The built-in range of impressive scanning tools intuitively prepare and clean scanned files, improving the overall finish of the scanned image for storing, editing, sharing and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) needs.

This results in less ink wastage when documents are printed, reduces file sizes for sharing and creates clearly legible articles when reading. This means less time is spent manually preparing and amending documents, allowing more time spent focusing on critical business tasks.
