One touch scanning from the 9.3cm colour touchscreen provides a simple scanning solution for all office employees, while the large screen makes it easy to identify features and operate, minimising the need for staff training.   

 

The programmable touchscreen can be pre-set to scan directly to designated locations including FTP or Network folder locations to instantly share documents across teams and departments. One touch scanning helps prevent the risk of inaccurate filing and lost scans by ensuring all staff can easily scan to the desired location.

 

The ADS-3600W has both wired and wireless connectivity for work station flexibility. Wireless connectivity means the ADS-3600W can be located in various areas across the office, situated wherever is convenient. Our secure wireless Network capability offers peace of mind for IT departments and business adaptability for users.

Colour Touchscreen

Using the colour touchscreen, scanned documents can be sent instantly to pre-selected destinations for quick and simple scanning, saving time and staff training. Routine scan jobs can be pre-configured more quickly and with fewer steps, improving workflow efficiency. 

Direct scanning to favourite locations such as a departmental folders, email recipients or OCR software means routine tasks can be performed quickly and simply. This reduces the need for staff training and speeds up everyday workflow. 

NFC

Near Field Communications (NFC)

NFC enables close proximity wireless communication between your Brother scanner and an NFC device.

This NFC capability automatically establishes a direct connection, allowing instant scanning without having to connect to a Network, for simple and timely workflow in and around the office to keep your business moving.

Give customers, visitors or colleagues quick temporary access to a Brother scanner without the need to obtain passwords or enter login credentials, which can be time consuming and complicated.

BSI

Brother Solutions Interface (BSI)


BSI is a software interface that enables third-party developers to build custom solutions for, or to integrate with, Brother devices. Customised menus and screens can be created to provide new capabilities – helping customers improve operations as well as reducing costs, wastage and risk.

Secure Function Lock

Secure Function Lock (SFL)

 

SFL is a security function which can disable or enable configuration settings and allow user restrictions to be put in place. It also has a public mode which allows functions to be left unrestricted. SFL allows administrators to restrict scanner settings per user, allowing for function management and improved security.

USB host

Scan to USB Host

The scan to USB Host feature allows the connection of an external storage flash drive up to 64 GB.

Paper Handling

Professional Paper Handling

Powerful, professional scanners, but still desktop friendly, Brother scanners can handle a range of media weights, using a wider output tray to neatly capture paper fed through the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).

 

Our wide document stoppers offer expert stack performance, making scanned paper collection easy and reducing scan downtime. The trays are also angled to encounter less paper resistance so paper can glide more easily and stack smoothly to reduce paper folds.  These small but precise engineering qualities are what make Brother a dedicated specialist in the scanner field.

Paper Protection

Multifeed Detection

This system uses sound waves to identify potential misfeeds. The paper pathway is automatically suspended and the user alerted if an irregular signal is detected, reducing the risk of damaged documents and lost data.

 

Advanced Reverse Roller System

This advanced system manages incoming bulk paper jobs so only one sheet is processed at a time, for outstanding reliability when scanning a variety of document types and weights.

Image Processing

Advanced Image Processing Features

 

The built-in range of powerful scanning tools intuitively prepare and clean scanned files, improving the quality of the scanned image for storing, editing, sharing and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) needs.

 

This results in less ink wastage when documents are printed, reduces file sizes for sharing and generates clearly legible articles when reading. This means less time spent manually preparing and correcting documents and more time spent focusing on the core of your business.
