How it works

Compact and versatile scanner for the front office

The fi-800R achieves scanning speeds of 40 ppm/80 ipm with ADF and 3.5 seconds per sheet with Manual Feed (A4 portrait, color, 200/300 dpi), and is capable of scanning up to as many as 4,500 sheets a day.

With its compact design, the scanner is ideal to use when space is limited, enabling better customer onboarding in spaces like reception desks and service counters. Its unique technologies assist both booklet scanning and continuous ADF document scanning with stable feeding, and reduce operator workload allowing users to provide better customer service.

  • Return Scan for passports and ID cards scanning
  • U-turn Scan with Automatic Stacking Technology for comfortable continuous scanning
  • Automatic Skew Correction and Active Separation structure to ensure reliable feeding
  • Comes with PaperStream IP and PaperStream Capture providing advanced image processing functions
  • PaperStream ClickScan also available for ad-hoc use to scan in 3 simple steps
  • PaperStream Capture Pro software available as a premium option

Versatile scanning with space-saving design and stress-free usability

The 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.

Dual Path Mechanism

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.

Automatic Stacking Technology

Fast, reliable, and hassle-free scanning for a better customer experience

The 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 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.

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

Customize and add to existing solutions for expanded use

A compact design makes the fi-800R the perfect device to add to existing solutions. The scanner can be embedded into self-service or payment terminal kiosks in environments like hotels, hospitals, and banks to simply boost the efficiency of counter operations.

For embedding


The fi-800R offers an OEM integration into a variety of kiosks, including voting terminals, medical carts, self-service government onboarding, hospitality, higher education, financial services, and transportation terminals.

Scanning thick documents, IDs, passports, credit cards is easy with a powerful return path. Just place the document in the slot, scan, then wait for the document to return back to you.


Scanning Mechanism

Equipped with Dual Path Mechanism, the fi-800R comes with Return scan for robust passport and ID card scanning, and U-turn scan enables continuous scanning for best embedded solutions.

Hardware Features

  • Scan both sides in one pass (duplex)
  • Dual Path Mechanism for both manual feeding (Return scan) and automatic document feeding (U-turn scan)
  • Multi-feed detection and Auto de-skew functions
  • 3.5 seconds per sheet with Return scan and 40 ppm/80 ipm with U-turn scan (A4 portrait, color, 200/300 dpi)
  • Scanning thick documents up to 5 mm (0.2 in.) including booklets and ID cards

Why choose RICOH fi-800R for OEM?

Save development time, integrate reliable hardware, reduce costs, use proven technologies, and eliminate points of failure. One scanner can scan nearly every document or ID required for customer processing with the most reliable name in document scanning. The powerful driver gives full control of the scanner, allow for scan, confirmation, and options for returning the document or keeping it.

Automate Business Workflows

The Kiosks integrated with the fi-800R help organizations onboard faster, reduce queue times, and process documents faster.

Need to wait in line at the counter after getting a queue number issued at the Kiosk terminal.

Scan ID card and application documents with fi-800R to complete the document submission.

Reliable processing by PaperStream IP

PaperStream IP scanner driver can automatically convert scanned images into clear images and extract data by making them OCR. It minimizes the work of document checking and data entry.

*Background pattern removal from copyright protected works is prohibited. The removal functions are intended to be used for the purpose of improving OCR accuracy, and use of the function for other purposes may be unlawful.

Minimize operational errors with automatic function

Auto-rotation, de-skew, and multi-feed detection functions ensure that even if customers make a mistake in operation, it will be handled correctly.
