The new SmartLF Xpress SC25c large format COLOUR scanner is ideal for technical CAD drawing offices and architectural practices using facilities management and Electronic Document Capture (EDC). Using Colortrac's SingleSensor technology USB3 interface and improved scanning speeds from the previous model this powerful wide format scanning solution is perfect for high quality scanning of wide format maps, site plans, engineering drawings, blueprints, architectural renderings and many other technical documents.
Up to 25 inches scan width. 654 A1 colour documents per hour scanning speed at 200dpi.
The new generation of SmartLF SC Xpress series scanners encompass many new innovative features that will help make your production scanning quicker and easier. With higher quality imaging, higher scanning speed and super speed transfer, the SmartLF SC Xpress series provides fast, high quality scans or copies of wide format maps, site plans, engineering drawings, blueprints, architectural renderings and many other technical documents.
All Colortrac SC Technical scanners begin life as a 'Mono' model and can easily be upgraded via email to 'Colour' or to 'Express Colour' making them a superb buy for users whose work load or requirements may change as they grow. If you choose to purchase a 'Colour' or 'Colour Express' model these will be upgraded prior to dispatch so delivery will be 2 days rather than next working day.
If you only have a requirement to scan technical document originals, choose a SmartLF SCXpress wide format scanner. If you require the versatility to scan technical documents, artwork and photos, choose one of the ColortracSG Graphics Scanners.
The Colortrac SC25c scanner is shipped with free SmartWorks Touch basic software. If your technical documents are dirty or in poor condition, we recommend upgrading to SmartWorks Pro Software. This allows you to quickly and easily clean up CAD drawings or blueprints.
Colortrac also supplyDocument Carriersin A1 and A0 size which will protect delicate and fragile originals and will also assist where translucent originals are being scanned.
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 compactSmartLF SC 25 Xpresslarge format scanner is the best general purpose solution for scanning wide format Technical Imaging and Color Graphics documents up to Arch D, ANSI D, ISO A1 or B2. With a small footprint, it is ideal for Small Office, Home Office, On-site Building Services, Architectural, Engineering, Construction, Facilities Management or Electronic Document Capture (EDC). Using the optional Document Return Guide, it allows you to feed and retrieve documents from the front, making the reduced footprint of the solution ideal for small offices.
TheSmartLF SC 25 Xpressis an addition to the expanding range of large format scannersusing theSingleSensor(Patent pending) digital imaging technology. This patented Colortrac invention combines contact image sensors (CIS) in a robust, single-piece unit, that enables a significantly higher optical quality and dramatically increase in pixel alignment stability. The 25 inch wide scanner has 30,000 short image-pathsensors and a custom designed bi-directional LED lighting arrangement. These work together to reduce optical errors to a minimum ensuring all scan and copy data is of the highest possible color and dimensional accuracy. Shadow effects in folds of creased documents are also reduced by the innovativeactive pressure rollerthat gently presses the document against the SingleSensor. TheSmartLF SC 25 Xpressuses “instant-on” low energyillumination technology and is Energy Star qualified. The scanner is manufactured to meet or exceed all relevant safety and electrical standards.
The new design incorporates a largerface-upstaging platform to make loading documents into the scannerfaster and easier. SC 25 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 scanni ng 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 TOUCHsoftware. The straight-through paper path of SC 25 has a maximum media width of 27 inches (686mm) and accepts documents and maps up to 0.08 inches (2 mm) in thickness. This is more than enough to meet the requirements ofAEC, CAD, GIS and the majority of work done by copy shop or service bureaux.
The SmartLF SC 25 XpressSingleSensorallows 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 Xpresslarge formatscanner series are the first scanners to incorporate the newSuperSpeed USB 3.0digital 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 25 Xpressscanner to work at full speed using higher resolutions on wider documents than ever before. For those without a USB3 equipped computer SmartLF SC 25 Xpressenhanced 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 25 Xpressoperator the freedom to scan wider and at higher resolutions without affectingproductivity. If you have large amounts of archiving then SmartLF SC 25 Xpress is the perfect solution.
UPGRADE at any time via email - Colortrac scanners can be upgraded at any time by the end user by purchasing an upgrade package. A Mono device can be easily upgraded to Colour or a Colour device can be easily upgraded to Express.
Optional extras such as software upgrades, floor stands and document guides can be found in the 'Related Items' Tab
