The Difference Between Hardware and Software Digital Sender Features

Making any purchase of technological goods can be a confusing process these days. Developments just seem to move on so that they date as quickly as you purchase them and then there is the difference between models in the same product range… Take the digital sender for example. What exactly is the difference between the 9100C, the 9200C and 9250C digital sender models? Each of the digital sender models have subtle differences and this has an impact on which may be the best option for you, but what exactly are those differences? This article will explore them in a little more detail.

The three digital sender models mentioned above do have a lot in common. They all look very similar in that they can be set on a desktop and used via an intuitive and transparent interface. They all have the same sort of facility for searching documents that are stored within their digital memory. They all also have a number of features in common. For example, the 9100C, the 9200C and 9250C digital sender models all have 50 sheet auto document feeders and are compatible with both PCs and Macs. The maximum scan size of each of the models is 8.5” x 14” and the resolution is of the same high quality at 600 x 600 dpi optical. However, there are also fundamental differences in the hardware and software of each of the models.

Taking the 9110C digital sender model first, it is a desktop device that essentially helps to give you a viable document management tool that can be used quickly and easily but the color and grayscale scanning speeds are quite low at 4ppm (pages per minute) and 15ppm respectively. This is in direct contrast to the speeds at which the 9200C and 9250C digital sender models scan. The former is 30ppm for color and 47ppm for grayscale and the latter is 29ppm for color and 55ppm for grayscale. This is a major difference, especially for those companies that will need to scan a larger volume of pages.

There are also major differences between the features on board. The 9100C digital sender has Adobe Acrobat Reader, Admin Utility administrative software and Drivers & Utilities software on board to help you to organize your documents. In addition to those programs, the 9200C has other facilities to help larger businesses, such as barcode reading and form recognition. As such, it is necessary to read the information provided so that you can consider the extent to which the software covers your wants and needs.

The fundamental differences outlined here regarding the 9100C, the 9200C and 9250C digital sender models may be subtle on paper but they are very real in practical terms. They can alter the way in which your processes actually work, making them more efficient and saving a lot of money along the way. To make sure that you do so though, you have to make sure that you choose the right model first and the differences outlined here prove that it is indeed worth taking your time to choose.
