WorkForce DS-530: Using the optional flatbed scanner dock

The optional flatbed scanner dock combines your document scanner and a flatbed scanner into a single unit. This allows you to scan thick or over-sized documents, such as cardboard and books that won't fit into the document scanner's ADF.


You must purchase a flatbed scanner (Epson Perfection V19/V39) to use the optional flatbed scanner dock. To attach the flatbed scanner and dock to your document scanner, follow the installation instructions that came with your flatbed scanner dock.

See the below sections to learn about the flatbed scanner dock option.
