The Fujitsu fi-4120C2 and fi-4220C2 scanners bring the perfect balance of speed and versatility to distributed and front-office scanning environments. Both scanners feature 600 dpi optical resolution for incredible image quality, high-speed dual color CCD arrays to scan both sides of a page in one pass, TWAIN and ISIS driver support, real-time onboard JPEG hardware compression, and built-in automatic document feeders (ADF) allowing users to scan up to 50 pages at once. Moreover, the Fujitsu fi-4120C2 and fi-4220C2 scanners possess exceptional paper handling with length and thickness double-feed detection as well as long document scanning support up to 34 inches. Yet, with a compact footprint measuring just 6.3” x 11.9” x 6.7” (fi-4120C2) and 9.0” x 11.9” x 22.4” (fi-4220C2), they easily install into even the most crowded environments.
