The SmartSource Micro Elite may be the perfect RDC scanner for low-volume environments, with its single-feed design and low price. The most sought-after qualities in scanners for remote deposit capture, or RDC, are affordability, size, and simplicity – and the Micro Elite delivers on all three fronts. 

Measuring just seven inches by four inches, the Micro Elite’s footprint on your desktop is not much bigger than a smartphone’s. And at a rated speed of up to forty-five documents per minute, it can handle checks and deposit slips just as fast as you can put them in. The Micro Elite delivers a great balance of performance and price for your remote deposit capture operation.

Key Features & Benefits

Compact Size, But Packs a Punch

Small. Reliable. Affordable.

It may be a single-feed scanner, but the SmartSource Micro Elite is made to handle documents as quickly as you can put them into the feeder. At a rated speed of up to 45 documents per minute, it is about as fast as you can get while still being a single-feed device. It also includes an optional single-line inkjet endorser. And it contains all the enhanced features of its big brothers in the SmartSource Elite series — an automatic cleaning mode, ID card capture, and a Smart LED color status indicator and control button. 

Teller-grade components make the Micro Elite as durable and low-maintenance as many comparable devices priced twice as high. You can be sure that your scanner will be ready when you need it. With a rated lifespan of over one million scans, it can handle your RDC workload for years on end. 

Automatic Cleaning Mode & ID Card Capture

Even though it is an RDC scanner, the Micro Elite comes with many of the great new features we developed for the teller line.

An automatic cleaning mode, as seen in the video at right, uses the motion of the feed mechanism to “scrub” the paper track and key components, making sure maintenance is done right. The LED indicator also reminds you when it is time for a cleaning.

As with the Elite series models, if you have an older Micro Elite, you can still enable the new cleaning mode through a firmware update. (Contact us for details.)

For users who need to scan customer ID card images, the Micro Elite has a straight-through path for capturing rigid objects. A new TWAIN interface for exporting to other programs may be available if supported by your bank’s deposit platform.

Think Tiny!

The coffee mug in this picture is actually a little bit smaller than usual. The SmartSource Elite is so compact, you can hold it in the palm of one hand.

When we designed this model, our goal was to make sure you’d barely even notice it is there on your desktop. And with a power-sipping 18W running, 3W in standby mode, you will not notice it on your electrical bill either.
