Linux driver now available for Fujitsu SP Series document scanners


London, November 03, 2016 – Fujitsu subsidiary PFU (EMEA) Limited expands the possibilities of operating its SP Series scanners (SP-1120, SP-1125, SP-1130) in a larger diversity of customer settings. The new Linux driver supports the Ubuntu distribution of the Linux operating system. Linux users can now enjoy the productivity-enhancing functions of the SP Series that customers have come to appreciate.

“With the popularity of Linux on standard desktop computers increasing and an increasing number of smart devices being based on Linux derivatives, our support of this platform with a dedicated driver is a logical step”, says Klaus Schulz, Senior Manager Product Marketing at PFU (EMEA) Limited. “Once again we are putting the focus on evolving customer requirements and the product developments that go with it.”

Designed to capture 20, 25 or 30 pages per minute (A4, colour, duplex, 200/300 dpi), the SP Series models are intended as solutions for companies seeking to raise their productivity.

Further additions of product support for Linux environments are scheduled for the near future.
