Ambir MSRP

Overview >

Totally custom capture.

Versatility comes with every Ambir scanner, and the ImageScan Pro 490i is no exception. Scan documents and ID cards in full-color, grayscale or black & white to fit your specific needs, whether you're capturing insurance cards, legal forms or your bills at home.


Compact and capable.

You’ve got a ton of paper. Not a ton of space. That’s why the ImageScan Pro 490i is designed with a compact footprint. It’s about the size of a three-hole punch, so it fits on crowded desks. And it’s USB-powered, so there’s no need for a bulky AC adapter.

Twice the scanning power.

Duplex scanning means both sides of the documents and cards are captured at once. And that means your work is done in half the time. All you need is ten seconds to capture the full picture of paper documents, IDs and business cards.


Automated imaging.

When your scanner captures images as fast as you can feed it, you save time. With the AutoContinue function, the ImageScan Pro 490i won’t prompt you before each scan. You can continuously create digital images, as long as you can keep up.
