The Plustek PL1530 Scanner is a multi-functional scanner designed to make your workflow efficient. It features a 50-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) which can handle a variety of media sizes including business cards and legal-sized originals and its auto-detection sensor automatically determines the size of your document to make scanning different sizes easy. The ADF allows scanning of a letter size color document in as fast as 9 pages-per-minute (ppm) at 200dpi resolution and a B&W original in as fast as 15ppm.

One of the unique features of the PL1530 is its dual USB ports that allow connections to two PCs; one press of a button makes it easy to switch between you and another user. Another great feature of the PL1530 is its ability to scan multi-page documents on both sides. Files can be processed into electronic searchable PDF files at the touch of a button whether the original is color or B&W. They can then be stored in a folder of the host computer allowing easy retrieval whenever you need it.

This scanner is very easy to operate...drop a stack of papers into the automatic document feeder, and press a button to begin scanning. Three function buttons are pre-configured scanning to common applications such as PDF, searchable PDF, email and OCR programs.

With the PL1530 simplex and duplex scanning in color, grayscale, and B&W is fast and easy.
Two USB ports for sharing between two PCs make it easier to keep a steady workflow.
Scan business card to legal sized documents to meet the needs of your workgroup.
Five single-touch function buttons for fast and efficient operation.
Scan to searchable PDF, JPEG, e-mail files plus multi-TIFF file format support.
At only 16.5" (418mm) wide, the PL1530 scanner can be conveniently located on a general office desk. Its two USB ports allow it to use less space for installation for use with two PCs.
