The Avision AV176+ is designed for desktop use in any office where scanning plastic ID cards, business cards, documents or other heavy card stock is necessary. Despite its small size, the AV176+ offers high-speed scanning at rates up to 20 ppm in simplex and 40 ipm in duplex mode. The Avision AV176+ boasts a unique and stylish design as both the input and output paper tray can be folded when not in use. The paper tray also helps to protect the unit from dust. Unlike bulky conventional scanners, the slim AV176+ can be easily carried and fit on a desk without taking up a lot of space. A convenient, programmable button feature allows users to pre-set nine customized functions for different scanning needs. For example, you can create file formats such as PDF, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, and BMP, scan to e-mail, or file documents by simply pressing a button.
