Long Beach, Calif. — Epson said it would enter the sheet-fed scanner market in December with a pair of models in its new Workforce line of small- and medium-business products.

The Pro GT-S50 and Pro GT-S80 feature dual-color CCDs for duplex scanning and are capable of scanning business cards, rigid ID cards and documents up to 8.5 inches by 36 inches. They offer auto paper-size detection and LED technology. Both scanners feature automatic background color removal, one-touch scanning, and Epson’s ReadyScan LED technology, which enables the units to turn on without warming up.

The GT-S80 ($899) can scan at 40 ppm or 80 images per minute. It features a 75-page feature feeder and a duty cycle of 1,800 sheets per day.

The S50 ($499) features a 25 ppm scan speed or 50 images per minute, a 75-page feeder and a 1,200 sheet per day duty cycle.
