How to Scan from MultiFunction Printers

All EUI MultiFunction Printers allow for several different scan destinations:

  • shared (academic or administrative unit’s) folder
  • your home folder (G: drive)
  • your personal EUI or other email address

The recommended scan destinations are Home or Shared Folder.

Scan to email addresses should be used only for small documents as it is limited by the maximum allowed size of email attachments (10Mb, easily reached if you scan in colour and with high resolution).

For each scan type you can choose from among several file format destinations, including Word, Excel, and JPG image: the default file type is searchable PDF.

Scanning of stapled or bound books

If your original document is a book or a stapled or bound booklet, you have to place it on the exposure glass and then tap the green Start button to scan. You have 60 seconds to turn the page and place the book again on the glass and tap the green button. When you have finished the work, tap Done on the touchscreen to close the file and to send the document to the recipient as illustrated in figure 1.

Scanning of unbound documents

If your original document consists of one or more unstapled or unbound sheets, place the document face up on the automatic sheet feeder and tap the green Start or the Scan button to send the document to the recipient as illustrated in figure 1. Once you have finished, tap Done to close the file.
