Honeywell has launched the 4800dr Document Reader, designed to digitise hard-copy documents for paperless processing, storage and retrieval.

An alternative to page scanners, the 4800dr is optimised for applications that require documents to be imaged at the point of entering a workflow. In the retail pharmacy environment, the 4800dr captures images of items commonly processed as hard copies, including prescriptions and insurance cards. In transportation it can be used to for example scan bill of lading forms.

"We designed the 4800dr as a solution that fits the document imaging workflow in specific types of environments," said Don Flynn, VP and GM, Imaging Systems, Honeywell Imaging and Mobility. "In the retail pharmacy and other areas where there may not be a need for high-speed batch document imaging, or where the reliability of a solid-state design delivers an enhanced value, the 4800dr provides a high-performance and cost-effective solution."

The 4800dr's design features an imager, stand and tray that work together as an integrated document imaging system that enables capturing images of documents up to 8.5 x 11 (or A4) in size without any adjustments. Designed with a focus on durability and reliability, the 4800dr has no moving parts that can wear out or require replacement, and is backed by a comprehensive three-year warranty.

Powered by Adaptus Imaging Technology 5.0, the 4800dr will image documents of any paper or text color. An integrated suite of image enhancement tools ensures optimum image quality and file size based on the users' requirements. Adaptus also provides the added flexibility of reading all linear, stacked and 2D barcodeseliminating the need for a secondary barcode scanner in some applications.
