Continuous scanning

Panasonic KV-SL30 series

Panasonic KV-SL30 series

The Panasonic KV-SL30 series of A4 hybrid scanners feature a flatbed which is integrated with an automatic document feeder, meaning they can handle damaged documents, booklets, passports, ID cards, envelopes and mixed-size documents easily.

Depending on the documents, the scanner allows users to choose to scan documents from either the ADF or flatbed. Users can also opt for continuous scanning from both, changing the scanning order from one to the other, before saving as a single file.

The KV-SL3066 scans at 65ppm/130ipm and the KV-SL3056 scans at 45ppm/90ipm, making them the fastest of all Panasonic models in the same class.
