Save Time and Increase Efficiency
A step-up from the recently introduced WorkForce® DS-510, the WorkForce DS-560 document scanner offers a wide range of features that allow employees to be productive. In addition to its ability to scan to popular cloud services, the WorkForce DS-560 allows users to scan directly to a mobile device, ideal for employees working remotely or in the field yet requiring instant access to critical documents. For increased flexibility, users can upload scans to their cloud service of choice, such as Google Docs™ or Evernote®, directly from their mobile device.

The WorkForce DS-560 delivers scan speeds of up to 26 ppm/52 ipm1 at 300 dpi, and can scan both sides of one sheet in just one pass, as well as a stack of up to 50 pages with its built-in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). It is also equipped with ultrasonic double-feed detection technology, which senses if more than a single page has been fed, and automatically stops the feeding to avoid missing pages or jamming.

The WorkForce DS-560 allows for seamless integration into third-party software, including custom content management systems, with the availability of TWAIN and ISIS drivers. Businesses can also leverage networking capabilities using an optional network module2 (sold separately) to support up to 100 workstations with full scanner functionality.

The WorkForce DS-560 is easily integratable into nearly any workplace with both TWAIN and ISIS drivers available, making it compatible with most existing office software.

Additional features of the WorkForce DS-560 include:

  • Compact Design: 6.1" x 11.7" x 6" (HWD); compact enough for any office environment
  • Versatile Paper Handling: From rigid ID and business cards to documents up to 36 inches; folded pages without using a carrier sheet
  • Advanced Color and Image Adjustments: Color Enhance to capture specific and continuously variable colors from the original document before converting to black-and-white; and Color Dropout removes any color from the scanned image
  • Robust Duty Cycle – Up to 3,000 sheets per day
  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Software – Converts scanned documents to editable text
  • Eco Features – Scanner is both RoHS compliant and recyclable3
