Term: Sheetfed scanner

A sheetfed scanner (also referred to as an automatic document scanner or ADF scanner) is a digital imaging system specifically designed for scanning loose sheets of paper, widely used by businesses to scan office documents and less frequently used by archives and libraries to scan books that have been disbound or other robust unbound documents. Sheetfed scanners may be compared in terms of the paper weight and size they are capable of handling, duty cycle rating, speed (pages per minute), and duplex capability.
