Ultra-Compact, Versatile Scanner

Ultra-Compact Footprint for Limited Spaces

The space-saving design ensures easy access and operation in the tightest spaces, in virtually any work environment.

Dual-Path Scanning Mechanism

Flexible return-path scanning accommodates thick documents, including envelopes, IDs, booklets, and passports. The integrated automatic document feeder (ADF) with U-turn Scan uses automatic stacking technology for easy retrieval.

Versatile Scanning With Space-Saving Design and Stress-Free Usability

The Ricoh fi-800R is a ultra compact scanner designed to fit in any limited space. Equipped with Dual Path Mechanism, while Return Scan enables robust passport and ID card scanning, U-turn Scan enables continuous scanning. The scanner automatically switches to the appropriate path depending on the location that documents are loaded so that mixed batches can be scanned without stopping to change scanning paths or software profile settings.

Return Scan for passports and ID cards

The Return Scan enables users to scan documents of up to 5 mm thick and complete start to finish in front of the scanner. Documents are ejected from where they were originally scanned in from, enabling users to scan and retrieve documents efficiently. Designed for reception-use, the device easily scans identification documents like passports, thick plastic cards, and folded documents, without a Carrier Sheet.

U-turn Scan for Fast Continuous Scanning With the Footprint of Half A4 Size

Equipped with ADF, the scanner scans A4-size documents continuously at a high speed of 40 ppm/80 ipm (color, 200 dpi/300 dpi). With U-turn Scan, documents are placed in from the top device to eject again from the top. The stacker automatically extends to provide neatly stacked output documents and returns to its original position once scanning has completed with Automatic Stacking Technology, so that users can easily start scanning their next batch. All these features enable the scanner’s space-saving design, allowing users to scan, organize and retrieve documents while multi-tasking with the other hand.

Fast, Reliable, and Hassle-Free Scanning for a Better Customer Experience

The Ricoh fi-800R scanner has feeding mechanisms that ensure steady scanning eliminating the need to rescan documents. The Automatic Skew Correction, that corrects skewed documents one by one, prevents documents from jamming or a part of a scanned image from appearing missing, even when documents are roughly set.

*Available document size is A6 (width 105mm/4.1in.) or more.


Even when documents are roughly set, the scanner straightens each document before scanning.

The second scanner image displays the front skewed document straightened and scanned. Followed by the third image of a scanner where the second document is straightened and scanned

The Active Separation structure prevents multifeed errors by applying an adjusted optimal amount of pressure to separate documents, according to the thickness or condition of a document to be scanned. It ensures steady scanning, which is perfect for a reception desk or service counter where precise scanning is required.

Advanced software improves workflow before and after scanning

The functions of PaperStream IP and PaperStream Capture, scanner driver and capture software for fi Series respectively, improves operators’ overall productivity, by reducing the number of operations before and after scanning.

For passport and ID card scanning, personal information such as full name, document number, nationality, contained in the MRZ* (Machine Readable Zone), can be extracted for efficient entry of customer information.

*Supports recognition of MRZ on passports and ID cards, as defined by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization). Passport MRZ layout is defined as two rows of 44 characters each (Doc 9303 TD3 format). ID card MRZ layout defined as three rows of 30 characters (TD1 format) or as two rows of 36 characters (TD2 format).

The Front Side Detection function* automatically determines front and back side to organize scanned images in correct order based on the photo of a face on a passport or ID card, so that users do not have to check whether or not documents are scanned in facing upward.

*This function is supported by PaperStream IP V2.10 or later.

The second column labeled "output" has the front side of the ID and is labeled "P.1 Front Side" followed by an image of the backside of the ID that is labeled "P.2 Back Side"

    With the Automatic Profile Selection function that automatically determines the best profile for a document based on pre-registered formats of specific documents, Ricoh fi-800R users can produce the best scanned images without sorting documents beforehand or performing multiple scans with multiple application formats.
