The Canon imageFORMULA DR-S150 is a flexible, easy-to-use office document scanner. Built in Wi-Fi®, wired Ethernet and USB connections for networked and local operation allow the scanner to be used with desktop
computers, compatible smartphones, or tablets, and shared among multiple users. And the large, user-friendly,
color touch-screen makes it easy to select destinations or shortcuts. With the DR-S150, document information
can be converted, processed, and shared efficiently for improved collaboration and productivity.
To use this model via Wi-Fi or ethernet, you need to download and install the free app on an Android or iOS device and then that device will interface and run the scanner via a Wi-Fi connection between your Wi-Fi device (connected to the network) and the scanner on the same local network. This is not truly a "standalone, walk-up and scan" model. You can configure a job setting on a connected PC, and send that job to the scanner so that the touch screen can be used to start and run the "job" but the job settings need to be configured on a PC and copied to the scanner....Once the job is there, your good to go. (up to 99 jobs). You can walk up to the scanner, select the pre-configured Job and scan to a network folder. But you cannot edit the job on the scanner. You have to repeat the process describe above. (Most Wi-Fi/Network scanners work this way).
The DR-S150 scanner is ideal for use by workgroups or individual users in many industries, including financial services, healthcare, legal services, insurance, and more. It can be used to modernize

converted to usable digital information quickly and accurately.
