The new SmartLF SC Xpress 36m large format MONO scanner is ideal for technical CAD drawing offices and architectural practices using facilities management and Electronic Document Capture (EDC). Using Colortracs SingleSensor technology USB3 interface and improved scanning speeds from the previous model this powerful wide format scanning solution is ideal for general purpose technical imaging and colour graphics up to A0 in size.
Scanning width 36 inches. 1418 A1 mono 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 SC36m 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.
TheSmartLF SC 36is an addition to our expanding range oflarge format scannersthat use ourSingleSensor(Patent pending) 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 36 scanner has 43,200 short image-pathsensors that are illuminated by a custom designed bi-directional LED lighting arrangement that also provide “instant-on” low energyillumination making the SmartLF SC 36Energy Star qualified. Shadow effects in folds of creased documents are also reduced by the innovativeactive pressure rollerthat 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 largerface-upstaging platform to make loading documents into the scannerfaster and easier. SmartLF SC 36is 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 expects the media at the side of the platform. The straight-through paper path ofSmartLF SC 36has 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 ofAEC, CAD, GIS and the majority of work done by copy shop or service bureaux.
TheSmartLF SC 36SingleSensorallows 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 large 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 36 scanner to work at full speed using higher resolutions on wider documents than ever before. For those without a USB3 equipped computer SmartLF SC 36 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 36 operator the freedom to scan wider and at higher resolutions without affectingproductivity. If you have large amounts of archiving then SmartLF SC 36 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 Colour.
