The ImageCenter ADS-2000 High-Speed Document Scanner from Brother features a 24ppm scan speed and a 600 DPI optical resolution. The scanner is ideal for batch scanning and scanning large documents thanks to its 50-sheet ADF. Additionally, with auto duplex scanning, the ADS-2000 easily handles 2-sided documents in 1 pass. There's no need to convert the document to a 1-sided document before scanning. Easily digitize your files and get rid of the paper clutter. Additionally, the scanner's compact size means you can keep it on the desktop without causing clutter.

In addition to scanning documents, the scanner can handle business cards as well as plastic cards such as IDs and driver's licenses. Additionally, the scanner includes modes to provide a smooth workflow. Scan modes include scan to email, scan to image, scan to USB memory device, and scan to Android phone/tablet.

The ADS-2000 comes bundled with a software suite that helps you get the most out of your scanner. Nuance PaperPort lets you scan directly to PDF. Additionally, the software lets you create and fill out electronic forms in a simplified manner. Nuance PDF Converter provides OCR capabilities and lets you save scanned documents as Microsoft Office or searchable PDF files. Also included is Presto BizCard which takes scanned business cards and imports the contact information directly to Microsoft Outlook and contact management software.

Key Features

Document Feeder With Duplex Scanning: Supports multi-page document scanning via the 50-page auto document feeder (ADF). Up to 24ppm (one sided) or 24ppm (two sided)
Multi-Feed Detection: Multi-feed occurs when two more sheets in the paper feeder are fed simultaneously into the scanner. If you continue scanning documents without knowing about this error, you could skip some of important data while scanning the document. The Multi-feed Detection function this scanner provides can help prevent such errors
Blank Page Removal: Blank page removal is especially usefully when performing duplex scans so that you can omit any pages that have no content. Save storage space and eliminate the need to edit scanned documents
TWAIN, WIA, ICA & ISIS Drivers: Use to control all the details of the scanner settings. Compatible with any application that uses TWAIN/WIA/ICA/ISIS device support

          Comments about Brother ImageCenter ADS-2000 High-Speed Document Scanner:

          We use this scanner as an input to our office electronic medical record. Despite being told by our EMR vendor that only very expensive (costing four times as much) scanners would work, I decided to try this one anyway. It works like a charm, does everything we need, and is the perfect low cost scanning solution for a small medical office.

              I found this great scanner after many rave reviews. Finding it here at B & H made it even easier to purchase: super price, wonderful service, fast shipping. The scanner is great for my medium office needs with solid scanning, fast processing, and needed filing. Would buy another in a heartbeat!

              Comments about Brother ImageCenter ADS-2000 High-Speed Document Scanner:

              Space is expensive, so it makes sense to use the space to work and not store endless paper documents. Not to mention you never know when it is safe to discard so you just hold on to too much. The idea of the scanner makes so much sense especially since you can now get hard drives bot internal and external so big that you will probably replace the hard drive before you fill it up with docs, and pics. If you think hard enough the abilities of the scanner are endless. This is a great machine at a great price. Take the leap here, you'll be pleased.
