Visioneer’s Patriot D40 is a color duplex desktop scanner and software package designed for scanning, storing and organizing up to 6,000 double-sided pages daily.

The Patriot D40, compliant with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA) as required for sale under federal General Services Administration (GSA) schedule contracts, features Visioneer’s OneTouch technology, enabling the scanner to function at the touch of a single button. The bundle works with Mac and Windows computers.

In addition to government agencies, corporations within the healthcare, insurance, finance and manufacturing industries can greatly benefit from the Patriot D40’s 6,000 page-per-day scanning ability and reliable paper-handling of ID cards, checks, legal-sized documents and long medical forms. The D40 is designed with an extra-wide automatic document feeder to handle warehouse pick tickets, auto dealership contracts and similar forms used with line printers,.

It can scan a form without customers first having to tear off the sides of the document, saving a lot of time and reducing the risk of ripping the document. The software crops the edges electronically to give you a proper-sized page.

The Patriot D40 will scan and image 60 double-sided color pages per minute (ppm) at 200 dpi resolution, or 40 double-sided color ppm at 300 dpi resolution. Optical resolution can be set for 200, 300 or 600 dpi, with Visioneer Acuity software enabling interpolated resolutions of 75, 100, 150, 400, 500 or 1200 dpi. Color output depth is 24 bits; grayscale output depth is eight bits.

In addition to paper originals, the Patriot D40 will scan images on plastic, such as ID cards, and photographs and can accept paper thicknesses in stock weights up to 110lb. The scanner will accept pages as small as 2” x 2.5”, to a maximum size of 9.5” x 118”. Connection to the computer is via USB, and a cable is included with the scanner. Its desktop footprint is 12.5” x 9.4”.

Supplementing Visioneer’s award-winning OneTouch and Acuity software, the scanner bundle includes Nuance® OmniPage® Pro, Nuance PaperPort®, and Nuance Power PDF for use with Windows PCs. Nuance OmniPage provides OCR and layout retention features, while PaperPort enables document management and workflow features.

Mac TWAIN provides many of the image cleanup features of Acuity, including improvements to visual clarity, auto-crop and auto-straighten. All software, including user manuals, is provided on DVD-ROM. A printed Quick Install Guide is also provided.
