Colortrac SmartLF SC Xpress Series is now even faster for everyday scanning tasks. At 200 dpi the paper speed has been doubled which means that an A0 / E size document scanned in 24-bit colour now scans at a full 12 inches per second, very nearly the same speed as a monochrome scan. At 300 dpi the speed has also been doubled. Scan speeds at higher dpis are not affected. This performance requires a USB3 enabled computer connection. For USB2 connections these speeds will be halved.
The new SmartLF SC Xpress series large format scanner is ideal for Technical and CAD Drawing Offices, Architectural, Engineering, Construction, Facilities Management and Electronic Document Capture (EDC). Using the new SuperSpeed USB3 digital interface and SingleSensor digital imaging makes this wide format scanner the best solution for general purpose Technical Imaging and Color Graphics for documents up to E-size or A0 format.
The SmartLF SC Xpress is an addition to our expanding range of large format scanners that use our SingleSensor digital imaging technology. The Colortrac invention combines a full document width of individual contact image sensors (CIS) in a robust single-piece unit, enabling a significantly higher optical quality and dramatic increase in pixel alignment stability. The SmartLF SC Xpress scanner has 43,200 short image-path sensors that are illuminated by a custom designed bi-directional LED lighting arrangement that also provide “instant-on” low energy illumination making the SmartLF SC Xpress. Shadow effects in folds of creased documents are also reduced by the innovative active pressure roller that gently presses the document against the SingleSensor. These features reduce optical errors to a minimum ensuring all scan and copy data is of the highest possible color and dimensional accuracy. The scanner is designed and manufactured to meet or exceed all relevant international safety and electrical standards.
The new design incorporates a larger face-up staging platform to make loading documents into the scanner faster and easier. SmartLF SC Xpress is the first Colortrac scanner designed specifically to auto-size documents face-up in the centre of the scanner, a change which helps the operator to see what they are scanning and also to load creased documents more effectively. For documents conforming to standard drawing sheet sizes (manual mode) the scanner can accept media side & center using SmartWorks Pro or at the side only using the SmartWorks TOUCH software. The straight-through paper path of SmartLF SC Xpress has a maximum media width of 38 inches (96.5cm) and accepts documents up to 0.08 inches (2 mm) in thickness. This is more than enough to meet the requirements of AEC, CAD, GIS and the majority of work done by copy shop or service bureaux.
The SmartLF SC Xpress SingleSensor allows the use of a simplified arrangement of rollers to ensure that the document always stays in contact with the optics. Driven rollers either side of the optical path and an active soft pressure roller running the full length of the SingleSensor allow the scanner to dynamically respond and actively work against the optical disturbances caused by document lift and paper creasing. This technology ensures that delicate or fragile media such as newspaper and old blueprints can be safely and accurately scanned without problem.
The SmartLF SC Xpress large format scanner series are the first scanners to incorporate the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 digital interface. With a dramatic x10 increase in the internal data transfer rates, the new USB 3.0 interface works at up to 5Gb/sec. In terms of speed of scan data saved to the computer this represents more than double the previous rate of 28MB/sec (USB2) to 65 -85 MB/sec for USB3 depending on computer manufacturer. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is unique to Colortrac and allows the SmartLF SC XPress scanner to work at full speed using higher resolutions on wider documents than ever before. For those without a USB3 equipped computer SmartLF SC Xpress enhanced USB2 circuitry achieves a 25% improvement in data speed (35MB/sec) above the previously recognised industry average transfer rate of 28MB/sec for a normal USB2 equipped pc.
Higher data transfer gives the SmartLF SC Xpress operator the freedom to scan wider and at higher resolutions without affecting productivity. If you have large amounts of archiving then SmartLF SC Xpress is the perfect solution.
Colortrac SmartLF SC 42 scanners include the NEW! SmartWorks TOUCH Scan/Copy/Email software that combines wide format scanning and copying in one very easy to use program and has full compatibility with wide format printers through standard Windows drivers. SmartWorks TOUCH is optimized for use with touch-screen monitors using a simple, intuitive user interface suitable for general office use.
