With the introduction of the lexmark 6500e MFP Option, owners of lexmark T650 Series printers can turn their devices into a fully featured multifunction device, with copy, scan, fax and email functionality, according to the vendor.
The modular scanner add-on is designed to enhance the functionality of lexmark T650, T652 and T654 single function laser printers.
The device is a single pass, two-sided ADF, flatbed scanner with a 10.2-inch color touchscreen. The scanner offers speeds of up to 50 pages per minute. ADF document size is from 2-inches x 3-inches up to 11-inches x 17-inches. Flatbed document size is up to 8.5-inches x 11-inches (A4).
Additional product features include: 100-sheet automatic document feeder with ultrasonic feed sensor to quickly detect multi-feeds that automatically shuts off the ADF, helping to protect original documents; the ability to handle a broad range of media including lightweight paper, card stock, credit cards and tabloid size items; books lie flat on the scanner for clean copies; and automatic correction to documents that are misaligned when loaded in the ADF, according to the vendor.
The optional scanner provides modular flexibility and is reportedly ideal for areas where a fully configured MFP may not fit, or to locate the scanner at a lower height for greater accessibility. The scanner unit design also allows users to place the scanner unit away from the printer.
