More about this product

At up to 160ipm (images per minute) 2-sided scanning and supported by a 100 sheet ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), the PDS-6000 is capable of handling high scan volumes for businesses digitally converting on a regular basis.

Expert paper handling with the Ultrasonic Multifeed Detection and Reverse Roller technology reduces the risk of damaged documents, offering outstanding reliability when batch scanning a variety of document types and weights. The PDS models can handle a range of media capacities up to embossed plastic card, addressing all user and departmental needs.   

As well as paper handling upgrades PDS-6000 has enhanced image processing. Advanced image processing features prepare and clean scanned documents, improving the quality of the scanned image for storing, editing and sharing. Business critical documents retain their original appearance, giving businesses a professional edge when printing or viewing scans with customers, or when storing for disaster recovery.

Ideal for businesses and small corporates with a regular or batch scan requirement. 

Image Processing Features

Auto-Deskew, Auto-Crop, Auto-Rotate

Align scanned images for a professional finish.

Blank Page Removal

Scanned blank pages can be automatically detected and removed, reducing file size and document preparation time.

Dynamic Threshold

When images and text are difficult to read due to colour density, the Dynamic Threshold tool lightens or darkens images as required; for sharp, clear and easy to read documents. The levels of light and dark tones can be adjusted as necessary to improve readability.  

Despeckle

When original documents have marks and ink blots, the intelligent image enhancement tool helps create a sharp and crisp image. 

Background Processing

Smooth and remove unwanted colours, creases or shadows from the scan. 

Edge Fill, Edge Clean Up

Removing unwanted edging produces clean page borders without scanning shadows.

Punch Hole Removal

Produce clean page borders by removing punch hole marks from the scanned image. Our intuitive fill function can also colour match the document background.

Colour Dropout

Remove red, green or blue singular and background colours for sharper, easy to read text or to prevent bleed through.

Auto Colour Detect

With Auto Colour Detect, the scanner eliminates the need to pre-sort batched documents or use separator sheets. Storage space is significantly lessened and the time needed to pre-sort documents is reduced.

Multi stream

Colour images can be saved into mono and greyscale versions, as well as colour, for multi copy use.

Customer Reviews

PDS6000 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yeah well.. its works So yeah, it scan... so what else did you want from it?
Date published: 2018-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extrem schneller Scanner Durch Zufall bin ich in diesem Jahr auf den Brother Scanner aufmerksam geworden. Bei Amazon konnte ich das Gerät zu einem sehr guten Preis einkaufen. Die Installation ist kinderleicht, so wie auch die Bedienung insgesamt. Der Scanner liefert so schnell die von beiden Seiten gescannten Dokumente zum Rechner, dass dieser oftmals mit der Menge der Daten überfordert ist. Alles in allem ein sehr empfehlenswertes Gerät - würde ich immer wieder kaufen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scanner The PDS 6000 was easy to set up and train individuals to use. The scanner handles the document feeding with high speed and an operating smoothness that justifies paying a little more than we originally budgeted for a scanner.
