The iX500 brings features and performance you would usually find on high-end professional scanners, in an affordable package that’s more intuitive and easier-to-use than ever. Simple and intuitive to use, the iX500 features give one-press access to Fujitsu’s highly regarded scanning software.
Its Quick Menu can be set up to display your favourite scanning destinations or will recommend the most appropriate application based on its intelligent document recognition. For example when a business card is recognised, Quick Menu shows a list of relevant contact management software.
Simple, Speedy & Compact
The iX500 easily digitises paper based data with the touch of one button. Simply place a document in the scanner’s paper chute, press the “scan” button, and the iX500 starts scanning right away. Furthermore, the iX500 is able to scan up to 50 double-sided pages at a speedy 25 pages per minute.
Gets on with its job - so you can get on with yours
The iX500 has an advanced “GI” image processing engine at its heart, taking ScanSnap to the next performance level. This powerful dual core CPU delivers enhanced scanning speeds independent of target device and connectivity, with a paper feeding performance that you would normally only experience from high speed, high volume scanners. Super-fast scanning is enhanced through the iX500’s USB 3.0 interface.
The iX500 facilitates simple PDF generation with a powerful range of one touch activated automatic settings and automatic image correction functions:
- Blank page detection
- Automatic alignment of skewed documents, auto-orientation, auto-size detection
- Automatic resolution setting bases on document dimensions
- Intelligent colour detection for optimal scanning
- Reduced bleed-through setting
The smart ScanSnap iX500 caters for every home and business scanning need, whether it’s business cards, receipts, or irregular shaped items such as recipes or magazines and newspaper clippings. The bundled carrier sheet enables iX500 users to digitise larger documents (A3/B4) as well as fragile items such as photographs – and carrier sheets can be scanned either as separate batches or mixed in with regular documents.
ScanSnap Folder, simplifying scanning to Windows applications
Inserting and importing images or PDFs into your favourite applications is a breeze, even without traditional driver software or a scanning interface. Simply browse to the new ‘ScanSnap Folder’ within your local computer, hit the blue Scan button on your scanner and your document will then be automatically imported into your application then deleted from ‘ScanSnap Folder’.
You’re connected. Scan everywhere, anyhow. View any time, any place
With built-in Wi-Fi, the iX500 offers the unique ability to link directly with mobile devices including iPad®, iPhone® and Android™ smartphones or tablets as well as Kindle™ devices. What is more, users can wirelessly operate the scanner via their Smart Device and the ScanSnap Connect Application* - creating high quality scanned images that can be saved to the device, manipulated, retrieved at a later date and distributed. Additionally it is possible to scan wirelessly to your PC or MAC*** device offering greater flexibility and the ability to place your unit anywhere in your environment.
The iX500 offers seamless linking to Cloud services allowing you to access your documents from any device, wherever and whenever you need it. The iX500 supports direct scanning to Evernote, Dropbox, Google Docs, SalesForce and SugarSync.

Save energy as well as trees
It goes without saying, that scanning saves paper, saves trees. The iX500 goes even further in helping the environment. It supports in advance the new version of "Energy Star" power saving standards, planned to be introduced in September 2013. The iX500 was designed from the outset to save energy. Its new CIS imaging sensor and red/green/blue LED light source help to reduce operating power by 40%, to just 20W, whilst consumption is slashed to 1.6W or less in sleep mode (2.5W when Wi-Fi is enabled). It even turns itself off completely when unused for a specified length of time.
