Microtek’s XT3500 is a versatile, cost effective, convenient, and innovative solution for scanning books and bound materials. With the XT3500’s patented Zero Boundary design, it is easy to eliminate the problem of scanning bound pages with text and pictures close to the inner margin of a book or magazine.

The XT3500 maximums the productivity by its fast scanning speed, which is less than 2 seconds for color scans at 200 dpi. With the “auto detect and scan” function, it can start the scanning process without requiring any efforts to go through the software interface. The XT3500 is ideal for all libraries, copy rooms, students, teachers, universities, SOHO, law offices, and publicists where productivity and quality are critical to success.

Less than 2 seconds to scan an A4-sized document
The XT3500 maximums the productivity by its fast scanning speed, which is less than 2 seconds for color scans at 200 dpi.


Scans automatically
The XT3500 is equipped with an advanced paper detecting sensor which can be activated by the ScanWizard DI. Therefore, the scanner can detect and scan documents automatically based on a predefined time interval.


Zero boundary design is perfect for scanning thick originals
The scanner can easily eliminate the problem of scanning bound pages with text and pictures close to the inner margin of a book or magazine. With the Zero Boundary design, what you see is what you get. No more distortions and blurs. You can get easy-to-read text and clear images across the entire page. Whether it is books, magazines, business and educational documents, or training materials.


3 programmable function buttons
Three programmable function buttons on the scanner panel provide you an intuitive and easy way to access scanner functions.


Newly improved ScanWizard DI software ( PC Only )
All-in-one control panel offers a host of features and image adjustment controls. Supporting the TWAIN driver, ScanWizard DI also features full document scanning tools and on-screen proofing. Its multi-scanning area and preview option allow you to obtain quick scans in the preview window.

Save multiple images as a single file
This advanced feature allows users to save multiple scanned images as a single file, depending on the number of scanned images that are defined for document archival.

Auto-crop and auto-deskew
The auto-crop function automatically detects the size of the original image, crops the full scan frame to fit the image, and removes unwanted black borders. The auto-deskew function automatically corrects distorted images for proper alignment.

Auto Document Rotation
With this feature, the scanner automatically rotates every saved file in a readable direction based on a specific OCR language selected.


Remove Punch Hole
With this feature, the software automatically detects the location of punch holes on the scanned documents and fills them in white. This function works for most common hole puncher standards.


Barcode Separator
This feature allows you to batch scan documents without starting and stopping each time a new file begins by using barcode numbers on the documents. It saves you huge amounts of time and money to organize, to index and to search files of documents in seconds, enhancing the efficiency and productivity of file management.


Remove Blank Page
With this feature, blank pages are automatically detected and removed by the software when scanning a stack of documents. This function is quite helpful especially when users are scanning double-sided documents and some of the pages only have text on the front side.


Smart Document Enhancement
With this feature, the scanner automatically brings out and improves the readability of text and removes unwanted background color (i.e., green, red, or blue) in/from a document that includes multi-image elements.


Paper count
The paper count allows users to keep track of all scan actions from both flatbed and ADF. This feature helps to estimate when you may need to replace the rubber or separation pad, or to apply maintenance and service to your scanner, making the use of your scanner more effectively.


Document Enhancement
This feature brings out and improves the readability of text in a document that includes other elements such as color, pictures, or graphs.
