Types of Scanners 

There are several types of scanners available on our online store. These include flatbed scanners, sheet-fed scanners, and handheld scanners. 

  1. Flatbed Scanners: Flatbed scanners are the most common type of scanner and are typically found in homes and small businesses. They consist of a flat glass bed where the document or image is placed face-down for scanning. The scanner head moves back and forth across the bed, capturing the image and converting it into a digital format. The HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 Flatbed Scanner and Epson Perfection V19 Scanner.
  2. Sheet-fed Scanners: Sheet-fed scanners are similar to flatbed scanners but are designed to handle multiple pages at once. They are commonly used  in larger businesses where there is a high volume of paperwork that needs to be scanned quickly.
  3. Handheld Scanners: Handheld scanners are smaller and more portable than flatbed or sheet-bed scanners. They are typically used for scanning individual pages or documents on the go, making them ideal for mobile professionals or individuals who need to scan documents while out of the office.

What to consider when buying a scanner

When buying a scanner, there are several features to consider, including resolution, scanner speed, connectivity options, and software compatibility. 

  1. Resolution: Resolution is one of the most critical factors to consider when selecting a scanner. The resolution of a scanner refers to the number of dots per inch (DPI) that the scanner can capture. The higher the DPI, the sharper and more detailed the image will be. If you plan to scan images or documents that require a high level of detail, such as photographs or technical drawings, you will need a scanner with a high DPI. HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 Flatbed Scanner has a scan resolution of up to 600 DPI
  2. Scanning Speed: Scanning speed is another important consideration, particularly for businesses that need to scan a high volume of documents quickly. The scanning speed of a scanner is measured in pages per minute (PPM) or images per minute (IPM). If you plan to scan a large number of documents regularly, it’s worth investing in a scanner with a high scanning speed. A typical scanner for home use like Epson V19 Scanner scans 20 t0 40 pages per minute but a high scanning speed scanner like the HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 Flatbed Scanner does 25 to 50 pages per minute.
  3. Connectivity Options: Most modern scanners come with a range of connectivity options, including USB, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi. If you plan to use your scanner with multiple devices or in a networked environment, it’s essential to choose a scanner that offers the connectivity options you need.
  4. Software Compatibility: The software that comes with your scanner is just as important as the hardware itself. When selecting a scanner, make sure to check the compatibility of the software with your operating system and any other software you plan to use. The software that comes with your scanner should be user-friendly, easy to navigate, and offer a range of useful features, such as optical character recognition (OCR) and automatic document feeding.
  5. Budget: Scanners price in Kenya range from Kshs. 20,000 to Kshs.70,000 depending on the features and functionality you require. It’s important to set a budget before you start shopping for a scanner and to look for a model that offers the features you need within your price range.
