AW: Netzwerkfähiger Dokumentenscanner?

  Alt 6. Mai 2019, 11:13
(Sorry for using English; I can read German fine, but writing it...)

I use a Fujitsu ScanSnap ix500 scanner for this plus a Windows VM that automatically logs on.

- Heise https://www.google.com/search?q=ix500+site%3Aheise.de

It is out of production now, but I think most of the below holds as the successor ix1500 is very similar (ix500 announcement https://www.fujitsu.com/sg/about/res...-20181002.html )

Before the ix500, I used a Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 which had similar capabilities as the ix500 but was a lot slower.

Cool things:

- included software can do OCR and scan to a path the Windows user has access to
- the scanner is fast, and does a stack of A4 full duplex automatically at a few seconds per page scanning on the scanner and 5-10 seconds per page OCR on a 1.2 Ghz dual core VM
- no fiddling from within the scanner to get network stuff working, or to keep it up-to-date on protocol changes


- the software pops up a dialog after each scan, so I wrote this: https://bitbucket.org/jeroenp/wiert....onsoleProject/
- you need a Windows PC that is logged on (so the software does work), which means I configured a VM to auto-logon
- WiFi 2.4 Ghz only (no ethernet interface, no 5 Ghz WiFi)
- you need USB on the same VM connected to the scanner once to configure WiFI
- like any hardware/software combination, sometimes the scanner or Windows VM need a reboot, for instance when it looses network or USB connection

The ix1500 has a touch screen instead of 2 buttons, so it might be that it has more standalone functionalities than the ix500.

Since I need a second scanner in a second place, I might get an ix1500 after the summer.
