Plustek Technology Inc., a manufacturer of consumer, prosumer, professional and office imaging devices (including portable scanners, sheetfed/flatbed scanners and photo scanners), is delighted to announce its SmartOffice PS406 and PS406U scanners are now supported by EMC Captiva ISIS (Image and Scanner Interface Specification) drivers—in addition to TWAIN.

EMC Captiva ISIS drivers use an industry-standard interface that works with many imaging applications, ensuring that the SmartOffice PS406 and PS406U run at their rated speeds and take full advantage of the power inherent in the hardware. The ISIS driver is very effective for handling high-volume scanning environments for expedited processing.

The ISIS engine provides high-volume document scanning, able to process over a million pages per day, which can then be routed to various process steps, based on defined rules. The technology supports streaming, multi-image formats from one scan, multi-processing capabilities, and high-performance processing. In mission-critical processes, imaging users accept as established fact that ISIS interfaces are faster and more consistent than TWAIN interfaces. The ISIS drivers also help to improve security and reliability.

SmartOffice PS406 and PS406U

Now compatible with EMC Captiva ISIS drivers, Plustek’s SmartOffice PS406 and PS406U departmental-class document scanners are designed with the image quality, paper handling and reliability required by the most demanding business users. At a scan speed of 40 pages per minute, the SmartOffice PS406 and PS406U provide high performance at outstanding value. The 100-page Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and 4,000 page-per-day duty cycle show these scanners built to scan documents in any heavy usage application.

The SmartOffice PS406 and PS406U are designed to scan business documents up to 14” long and rigid cards, such as ID cards and drivers licenses, up to 1.2mm thick, without operator adjustments. Mixed batches of documents can be scanned without sorting thanks to the leading class paper handling and image quality. The SmartOffice PS406U adds the additional feature of ultrasonic misfeed detection to prevent data and image loss due to documents that are not fed correctly.

The SmartOffice PS406 and PS406U have Single Touch buttons that automate up to nine different scanning jobs including: scan to searchable PDF, save to folder on a network or a computer, scan to e-mail, scan to an application, scan to printer. Industry standard TWAIN drivers combined with TIF, JPG, PDF and Microsoft Office file formats ensure compatibility with thousands of scanning and imaging programs. Built-in image processing insures the highest image quality, reduces rescans, and increases OCR accuracy.


With an MSRP of £477 (SmartOffice PS406) and £510 (SmartOffice PS406U), these scanners are affordable solutions for departmental scanning tasks and small businesses. The scanners can be purchased from authorised resellers, DMRs, VARs, and distributors including Allied Images. All prices are excluding VAT.
