Posted September 3, 2015

With no moving parts, the 4850dr can take full imagers of 8.5″ x 11″ or A4 documents on any color paper. On top of this, the 4850dr can also decode any linear, stacked, and 2D codes. on the documents for easier processing.

In addition, built-in auto-cropping and an array of file configuration options and compression functions ensure optimum image quality and file size for your application requirements.
