Kodak Alaris Expands S3000 Departmental Document-Scanner Line

Kodak Alaris S3100 Series.

On May 10th, Kodak Alaris expanded its S3000 Scanner Series with the launch of two new models, the S3120 Max and Kodak S3140 Max, both of which are based on the S3000 Max Series.

S3000 Max Series

Kodak Alaris says the departmental S3000 Max Series combines high-volume capacity with the simplicity and compact size of a desktop unit. The S3000 Max Series is said to provide exceptional image quality, superior paper protection, versatile media handling capabilities, and faster capture speeds, plus three months of onsite, next-day service and support and extended service options.

The new A3 models are feature on-board image processing that enables independent operation and reduces PC resources. The RESTful Web API support is said to provide efficient document capture via the Web browser, with no software or drivers required making it easy integrate them into line-of-business applications, Web-based scanning applications, and and for use with mobile devices.

Kodak Alaris says knowledge workers can configure the scanners themselves, without IT support, and the intuitive interface and 3.5” color touchscreen provide simple operation. Operators can personalize workflows with Smart Touch software, which is capable of configuring up to 20 different scan jobs to suit specific scanning needs, all with one touch.

Users can scan and digitize data int enterprise applications such as ERP or CRM systems, as well as scan documents into on-site or off-site applications and file repositories, including cloud services.

Improved Paper Handling

Versatile media handling capability means the S3000 Max Series can handle a wide array of paper sizes, shapes and weights, including mixed batches. The scanners feature a 500-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF), enabling operators to scan multiple batches at once, while controlled output stacking speeds up post-scan processing.

Advanced Intelligent Document Protection (IDP) and multi-feed detectors catch paper-feeding problems to ensure all documents are scanned without damage or skipped pages. IDP “listens” for problems and notifies users before jams or misfeeds occur, helping to safeguard valuable data and further improve efficiency.

Image Quality and Accuracy

The new MAX Series Scanners also have built-in barcode reading, and Perfect Page technology, which is said to provide superior image quality while scanning at rated speeds. Perfect Page is said to enable the best possible performance when using machine data extraction (OCR/ICR/Forms Recognition) and delivers RPA-optimized files. Users can even add a custom string of text on documents via the built-in digital stamping feature or optional imprinter accessory.

The S3120 Max has a maximum daily volume of 60,000 pages, Ethernet network interface, USB interface, 120/240 ipm scan speed, 500-sheet automatic document feeder, and minimum/maximum document size of 2.5″x2.8″/12.5″x160″.

The S3140 Max has a maximum daily volume of 70,000 pages, Ethernet network interface, USB interface, 140/280 ipm scan speed, 500-sheet automatic document feeder, and minimum/maximum document size of 2.5″x2.8″/12.5″x160″.


The S3000 Max Series provides security features such as Secure Boot, which validates firmware before it executes, and supports enterprise security protocols for scanning over networks, including TLS Encryption and HTTPS, which is said to be easy to enable via the Kodak Alaris RESTful WEB API.

Joe Odore, product marketing manager at Kodak Alaris, commented: “The global pandemic has proven that digital transformation is a powerful enabler of long-term success and resilience. As organizations worldwide continue to advance their DX strategies, they demand powerful, productivity-boosting and secure capture technologies to support their continuous innovation.

“We’ve designed the S3000 Max Series Scanners to address the capture challenges our customers are facing now, and to enable them to digitize workflows and process digital data in an automated and intelligent way,” said Odore.
