Overview Tab

ADS2400N in situ



The ADS-2400N desktop document scanner from Brother has built-in wired Network capacity for the quick transfer of information across the business. With three programmable buttons, users can one-touch scan to pre-defined locations to ensure business critical information arrives on time and at its desired location.


To support cross function scanning, the ADS-2400N scans to Network, OCR software, USB, File, Image, SharePoint® and email, so teams across the business can utilise the device no matter their requirement. The USB Host feature allows users to connect an external storage flash drive up to 64 GB.


 Incorporating TWAIN supported image processing features, the ADS-2400N is capable of achieving professional quality scanned outputs for business ready use. Image processing functions prepare and clean scanned documents, improving the quality of scanned images for storing, editing, sharing and OCR requirements. This ensures that business critical documents are easy to read and reference when archiving for disaster recovery.


With Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity, auto 2-sided colour scan, a 50 sheet ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) and 60ipm (30ppm) scan speeds, the ADS-2400N is a professional departmental scanner perfect for small to medium business needs.


Network Scanners

Offering true network capability with no need to install software at multiple location points, Brother Network scanners allow documents to be scanned directly from the machine to multiple devices. With one simple press of a button or Touchscreen*, scans can be quickly and easily shared across teams and departments; improving workflow efficiency and increasing productivity.


*Touchsceen on ADS-2800W and ADS-3600W models only.


Programmable Keys

Using programmable buttons, 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 (Optical Character Recognition) software means routine tasks can be performed quickly and simply. This limits the chance of error, reduces the need for staff training and speeds up everyday workflow. 

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.
