  • Paper Size Detection

    means a mixed sized batch of documents can be scanned and only the exact paper size will be displayed

  • Colour Detection

    Colour or black and white elements will be scanned as such thereby limiting file size

  • Blank Page Removal

    Scanning in duplex mode will mean mixed single and double sided documents will have blank pages removed

  • Auto Deskew

    If the document is scanned at an angle it will automatically be straightened

  • Auto Orientation

    If a text-based document is scanned upside down it will automatically be rotated

Fast and accurate scanning

The N1800 delivers scanning speeds of up to 20 ppm / 40 ipm (Colour, A4 size at 200 and 300 dpi). Very accurate ultrasonic sensors detect when overlapping pages (multifeed) enter the imaging device.

Serious security features

The N1800 comes armed with advanced security features to ensure safe and secure operation among multiple users.

  • Advanced security measures guard scanned data from prying eyes.
  • Login authentication strictly controls what people can do with the scanner.
  • Scanned data can be output as password-locked PDF files.

Secure initialise

When the N1800 is initialized, free regions of the internal memory can be overwritten with completely random, meaningless data. As an added security measure, a new encryption key is generated after user information is deleted. All of this ensures that no trace of old user data can be retrieved from open memory.

On-board touch panel makes operating ScanSnap truly easy

The N1800 features a large, vibrant touch panel, which utilizes ‘One Push’ interface, so anyone can operate the imaging device with ease.


Scanned data is encrypted and temporarily stored in the scanner while it is being processed for e-mail, faxing, printing or storage. Even if an unauthorised party analyzes the internal memory, they would not be able to decipher the data. Scanned image data deletion The N1800 automatically deletes image data from its internal memory after the processed data is sent to an e-mail, fax, printer or a network folder, Even if an error results in data remaining in the memory, the data is automatically erased the next time the scanner is started up.

Customise it to the needs of each user

Administrators can customise the touch panel menu and scan settings of the N1800 to suit the work of a specific user or user group registered to the scanner. This way people who log on to the scanner will always find it optimized for them and easy to use.

Versatile range of use from ‘SOHO’ to large enterprises
