  1. Scanning speeds may vary due to the system environment used. Scanning speed measured from "start feeding document" to "finish output document" after pre-pick and pressing scan button (not including warm-up time). Warm-up time is less than 2 seconds (or less than 3 seconds from chute cover closed).
  2. Documents measuring approximately 148 mm in length or less are scanned in "Best mode", while other documents are scanned in "Better mode".
  3. Automatically stitch a two-page spread when scanning a folded A3, B4 or double letter size document one side at a time. The image is automatically stitched only if texts or diagrams cover across the two-page spread.
  4. ScanSnap iX100 is capable of scanning documents that exceed A4 size in length. This function is available for all models except for "Excellent mode".
