Brother ADS-1600W in More Detail

The 6.9cm touchscreen and the space-saving design are two of the features that make the Brother ADS-1600W an efficient and effective office scanner. It has wireless network features built in and speeds of up to 18 pages per minute, plus a 20-page document feeder that negates the need to have to individually feed and scan every single page.

Beneficial connectivity

Wireless connectivity should be considered essential in this type of device. It not only means reducing the amount of wires connecting a PC to the scanner but also means that several computers can connect at once. Any remote workers, with their own laptops, can also connect to the device. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a scanner for the home office, it means fewer wires and greater convenience.

With the Brother ADS-1600W you can even scan to your phone or other mobile device instantly, bypassing the need to use your computer at all; another benefit of a built-in wireless connection.

Fast document scanning

When choosing a scanner, scan speed is an important consideration. The ADS-1600W is a double-sided scanner, which means that it will scan the front and back page of a document in one go; no need to remove the document and turn it over before scanning again.

Scan speeds for the Brother scanner are up to 18 pages per minute, roughly equivalent to 36 inches per minute. The document feeder means that you can automatically feed up to 20 pages, allowing for the quick and easy scanning of 40 document sides.

Convenient, space-saving design

Whether you are looking for a scanner for a shared bank of workstations or for the home office, the compact design of the Brother ADS-1600W means that it can be installed and used in any location. It won’t take over the office, while the touchscreen control makes it quick and easy to use too.
