Epson’s WorkForce DS-360W

Malaysia, July 18, 2017 – Epson has launched its new portable scanners, the WorkForce DS-310 and DS-360W, for convenient scanning on-the-go. One of the fastest portable business scanners on the market, the WorkForce DS-310 and DS-360W scanners are the first portable scanners with an Automatic Document Feeder in SE Asia, enabling speedy scanning and archiving of documents for the mobile workforce.

The WorkForce DS-310 and DS-360W scanners scan at fast speeds of 25ppm or 50ipm, at up to 300dpi resolution for efficient and fast document archival. The compact and lightweight scanners weigh at 1.1kg and 1.3kg respectively, and can be carried around easily in bags and briefcases.

Both the scanners provide convenient scanning with connectivity options while on the move, and can easily be charged via USB 3.0 without the need for an AC adaptor. Additionally, the DS-360W has a built-in battery which can be charged directly with a USB cable connected to a PC or laptop. With the DS-360W, users can connect via Wi-Fi. The device can also be used as an access point for devices to connect directly to the scanner.

The versatile scanners scan a wide variety of media, from 52 to 230gsm in thickness, including business cards and plastic cards, as well as different paper sizes of up to 1.1m in length.

The scanners come with advanced software that allow for text enhancement for improved text recognition when scanning. Its auto area segmentation feature automatically detects and scans text and images separately, while the document skew correction feature automatically adjusts and straightens scanned images.

Epson document scanners come bundled with document management software that allows users to easily manage their scanned files.

“The new portable WorkForce DS-310 and DS-360W scanners are power packed with features in a compact and lightweight body, and are well-suited for the busy road warrior. With the Automatic Document Feeder, scanning while on the move can be done more quickly with greater convenience,” said Danny Lee, General Manager, Sales & Marketing, Epson Malaysia.
