Scan larger and heavier documents
Scan documents larger than the typical A4 size that need to be folded in half, envelopes and much more with Manual Scan Mode. Documents that are typically difficult to scan in Normal Scan Mode can now be captured.
Effortlessly scan small documents with the Receipt Guide. No need to be concerned about fixing receipts and business cards that tend to curl or skew. Designed to be a comfortable fit even when the cover is closed, it dramatically reduces the handling of documents before hitting the scan button.
Versatile paper handling
With professional grade feeding technology and an ultrasonic sensor, the iX1500 handles multi-page documents with ease, and can additionally detect and alert you of multi-feeding errors.
Clean images all the time
Receive notifications on the touch screen whenever Dust Detection spots dust that may result in streaked images. Maintenance notification beforehand enables you to reduce the hassle of time-consuming rescans.
Even if streaks happen to appear on scanned images, Streak Reduction removes them to produce clean images.

Connect the iX1500 to your computer or smart device (both iOS and Android)*1 in your office and at home, using existing Wi-Fi environments with Access Point Connect Mode*2. Connecting is also possible in environments without Wi-Fi using Direct Connect Mode, as the scanner itself functions as an access point. Supporting 5 GHz Wi-Fi*3, it ensures smooth data transmission.
