Is there a way to set the default scanning resolution? We are an architecture firm and it would be easier for us to have the Default resolution at 600dpi rather than having to adjust it everytime.
Shay’l R on Jun 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The default settings can be accessed through the user panel or via the device's internal web page (Web Image Monitor) from a computer on the same network. You can see the device's web page by simply putting it's IP address into your web browser's address bar. The IP address should look something like this,, although it will probably be a slightly different number.

You can obtain step by step instructions on setting up the device defaults from the (240 page) User Guide or get quick reference tips from the single page Quick Reference Scanner Guide, both are downloadable from
