fi-800R Document Scanner


Compact and versatile scanner for the front office

The fi-800R is a compact yet highly efficient document scanner capable of scanning all types of documents including passports and IDs. It includes robust features such as reverse feeding and Active Skew Correction–an industry first!–all to provide an agile and efficient scanning experience on even the most crowded of desks. Because of its U-turn feeder and elimination of the paper exit tray, the fi-800R fits into tight spaces and eliminates the need for multiple scanning devices.

The fi-800R scans A4 portrait documents at comfortable speeds of 40 ppm/80 ipm (200/300 dpi) and makes customer onboarding easy with its compact size and versatile scanning abilities.

Ultra compact footprint for limited spaces

The fi-800R is the perfect scanner when space is limited. Designed to fit in tight office spaces, it comes equipped with the Dual Path Mechanism, enabling scanning of a wider variety of documents. Satisfy all your scanning needs, from plastic cards to booklets, with a single device.

Versatile scanning functionalities

U-turn Scan using the ADF makes the small footprint even smaller. The stacker extends to provide neatly stacked output documents and returns to its original position once scanning has completed, so that users can easily start scanning their next batch.

Clever ID scanning for a quick customer onboarding process

Using Return Scan (the front fed path), scan passports and ID up to 5 mm thick without using a carrier sheet. Simple one sheet scanning also no longer requires the hassle of opening the feeder. Clever operation and fast scanning speeds of a mere 3.5 seconds reduce customer wait times and help provide great customer experiences.

Stress-free operation with accurate paper feeding performance

Serve customers faster with the fi-800R’s robust feeding functionalities. With Automatic Skew Correction, documents are straightened one sheet at a time for precise paper feeding. Active Separation adjusts pressure to ensure each sheet is separated and captured without any misfeeds. Confidently scan mixed batches and make customer onboarding more efficient.

Advanced software for maximized efficiency

Empower reception workflows and use information more efficiently with our enhanced PaperStream IP scanner driver and integrated PaperStream Capture software. With the MRZ Recognition function, information found within the Machine Readable Zone is recognized and extracted as metadata for fast client retrieval. Users no longer need to organize documents or check if documents with photo IDs are scanned face up, since the Front Side Detection function detects photos on ID cards and passports to automatically set pages with photos as the front side. With a few simple setting configurations, Automatic Profile Selection also allows documents to undergo image processing appropriate to each document format. All these functionalities work together to offer a wider variety of batch scanning features and make employees more efficient.

PaperStream ClickScan simplifies scanning

Easy to use capture software for any business. Simple scanning interface with 3-steps: scan, select destination & save.
