ScanSnap iX1600 now allows direct saving to a network folder without the need for a PC

ScanSnap now offers a function that allows users to directly save data to a network folder. You can now place your ScanSnap scanner anywhere in your office or home and save your scanned data directly to your designated network folder, all without the need for a PC*1.

ScanSnap allows you to work smarter and more comfortably by responding to your diverse needs, whether at work or in your personal life.


Create a profile in which the save destination for scanned images is set to a network folder, and place an icon that represents the profile on the touch panel of the ScanSnap iX1600*2. Save your scanned data directly to the network folder by selecting the icon and scanning without a PC. You can save your scanned documents with ease using the familiar "one-touch" operation, whether you are using a file server at the office or a network folder to store your family's documents at home.

Confidential or sensitive documents can be directly saved to local network folder

The new function of ScanSnap iX1600 provides optimal data management since the scanned data is directly saved to a local network folder. Thanks to its PC-free operation, the iX1600 is ideal for team sharing and can be conveniently placed in a corner of your office.

Back up large amounts of documents quickly with faster scanning

For the purpose of backup, you can digitize a large number of documents at once with higher scanning speed and save them directly to the network folder. Your ScanSnap can save large files that are not suitable for cloud storage due to limited space, directly to a high-capacity network drive.

One touch saving to a network folder for home use

ScanSnap is also suitable for home use. Greeting cards, photo, and important family documents can be intuitively saved to your network folder. Since a connection to a PC is not required, the scanner can be placed anywhere in your living room. Scan and save your documents anytime with only a few simple steps. Enjoy stress-free digitization in your daily life.
