N7100E Image Scanner


Equipped with network features to make information sharing easier than ever

The N7100E is an easy-to-use shared, stand-alone network scanner with a large touch screen and job buttons to make distributed work flows more efficient. Scanning speeds are a consistent 25 ppm/50 ipm (A4 landscape 200/300 dpi) with a 50 sheet loading capacity.

Easy stand-alone network operation with a large display

Operators no longer need a computer to scan, save or send data using the N7100E. Digitizing or editing documents, storing scans to network directories, and sending data via email attachment can all be completed with simple operation of the large touch screen and on-screen keyboard. Without the computer add-on, operations remain simple and easy, so that minimal operator training is required and there is no need for computer maintenance.

Customize for secure group use

Administrators can customize the touch panel job menu and scan settings to suit the work of a specific user or registered user group. In this way, administrators can control what each operator can do and customize a single unit to function as a terminal, exclusive to each operator. Shared use always comes with its share of risks but the N7100E provides numerous security measures to ensure complete data protection. Not only does the scanner implement verification before scanning, but it ensures automatic data encryption during processing and data deletion after scanning.

Fit all unique needs with ultimate customization functionalities

User applications can also be integrated into the scanner as add-in software using the exclusive SDK (for Windows). Added applications are displayed on the job menu.

Versatile range of use from SOHO to large enterprises

Whether at small office networks or large enterprises, N7100E easily satisfies the digitizing needs of networks using file or e-mail servers. Designed to be shared among multiple users, it also offers administration functions that allow administrators to individually or collectively set up and manage a vast network of units from a single console. The Admin Tool function allows administrators to adjust running environment settings one scanner at a time. And the Scanner Central Admin enables collective monitoring and managing of scanner usage, settings and much more for multiple units. The N7100E also includes keyboard and stand options for kiosk set up.
