Planon Introduces New Pen-Sized Full-Page Portable Scanner

Patented DocuPen Scanner Features Rechargeable Unit and Enhanced Scanner Technology

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — Planon System Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of scanning hardware and software, introduced several enhanced features to the popular DocuPen portable full-page scanner designed to increase the scanning accuracy and eliminate the necessity of replacement coin batteries.

The DocuPen is a patented, fully portable full-page scanner that is the size of pen yet weighs less than 2 ounces and is only 8.5 inches long. While traditional pen scanners only read individual lines of text and are unable to scan graphics, the DocuPen scans an entire page of text and graphics in just 4 seconds and stores up to 100 pages in its 2 megabytes of flash memory. The DocuPen meets the need for quick, convenient out-of-office scanning of most any document.

Planon’s newest scanner, the DocuPen R700, includes a rechargeable feature that allows the DocuPen to remain perpetually charged without utilizing a separate charging unit. Once a user plugs the DocuPen R700 into a computer’s USB port to download the scanned information, the scanner’s batteries are automatically recharged.

The DocuPen R700 also features a dual-roller guiding system and optical registration technology to enhance the user experience by creating a smoother scanning operation and a more accurate scan. The dual-roller guiding system includes strategically placed rollers around the scanner lens to distribute operator’s pressure evenly for smooth and easy scans. Using optical registration technology, the DocuPen R700, can create a highly accurate scan using its optical timing and registration system.

The DocuPen R700 answers the need for scanners on the road and even inside the office or home. Users can easily scan multiple types of documents, such as letters, magazines, blueprints, sketches, then download to a computer and print or send them as email attachments instead of faxing them. Recipients can store the information on their computers and access it easily.

As a bonus, the DocuPen R700 includes ScanSoft’s PaperPort OCR software to manage scanned documents and connect to programs such as Outlook Express, WinFax, Notepad, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Users can make changes to their scanned documents with editing tools that allow them to crop and rotate images, add annotations, highlight text and draw with a freehand tool.
