As well as being small, and easy to operate, the feature-packed P-215II offers high-speed one-pass duplex scanning with the added convenience of a plug-and-scan function. Also, a built-in card reader is helpful for businesses who need to capture ID or business cards.


Super-fast and simple to operate, the P-215II is a lightweight, compact scanner that can be used anywhere, anytime. You don’t need access to a power supply – all you need to start scanning is a USB connection.
This machine will open up all kinds of new scanning possibilities. What’s more, ease of use is enhanced by the new CaptureOnTouch and CaptureOnTouch Lite, which makes for even more intuitive operation.


Compact and Portable

This small and lightweight scanner with its slim and streamlined design is easy to carry around, giving you the freedom to scan anytime at all. And with ADF capacity of up to 20 sheets, it is also ideal for business use despite its compact size.

USB Powering

USB PoweringThe P-215ll draws power from a single USB port, eliminating the need for a dedicated power cable and reducing clutter around the scanner. The scanner will perform at the maximum scanning speed via a single cable when connected to a USB 3.0 port*.

*USB3.0 is for power supply only.

Plug & Scan

There is no need to install any driver software or scanning application on your PC as the pre-installed scanning utility, CaptureOnTouch Lite, provides plug-and-scan capabilities. Simply opening the feed tray turns the scanner on and makes it ready to scan.

Card Scanning

When a card is inserted into the slot at the front, the switchback system will automatically transport, scan and eject. This type of card scanning is particularly handy in businesses where counter service is important.


Various functions to improve scanning efficiencies and qualities

Wide range of intelligent image processing functions are equipped.
Please refer to the “Image processing functions” page for details.

Bundled Software

Enhanced ease of use and intelligibility

As this is preinstalled, plug-and-scan is now available without having to install any driver software. Employing the same panel-style GUI as CaptureOnTouch, CaptureOnTouch Lite offers editing capability and intuitively understands what is required. What’s more, the standard functions of CaptureOnTouch can be used in exactly the same way for a trouble-free scanning experience. Additional plug-ins can also be used to support various outputs.

Enhanced Cloud Connectivity

Connection iconsConnection to cloud-based services is now even more comprehensive. In addition to Evernote, SharePoint and Google Drive, scanning destinations have been expanded to include SugarSync, OneDrive and Dropbox.

CapturePerfect and CaptureOnTouch are both capture application software for the DR scanner series.
Each of the software can be selected and used, depending on the usage and workflow.
