36″ and 48″ Wide Format Color CIS Scanner
The WideTEK 36C / 48C is by far the fastest CIS scanner available on the market, running at 6.4 inches per second at 200dpi in color, 4.3 inches per second at 300dpi in color and 2.1 inches per second at 600dpi in color. Grayscale and binary speeds are doubled, but are limited to 10 inches per second at 200dpi to ensure safe paper handling. All of these speeds are guaranteed due to the Scan2Net technology integrated in the scanner’s own built-in PC. It is a true standalone system, capable of scanning directly to FTP servers, USB drives, to cloud applications in the internet or copying to plotters directly, without the need for an extra PC.
Illuminated by more than 1000 LEDs, it produces extraordinarily sharp and crisp images, with color accuracy even superior to many CCD scanners. Document rotation can be done without any penalty, enabling a scan of an E-sized document in portrait mode at 400dpi color in 15 seconds. The same scan in 400dpi turbo quality mode takes only 8 seconds.
The WideTEK 36C / 48C features all of the benefits of the WideTEK scanner family of products including:
Another feature defining the WideTEK 36C / 48C as a production quality device is the unique four wheel drive transport system, with rugged transport drums designed to ensure an extremely gentle paper transport while avoiding slip and skew of the source document. The high quality rubber transport drums are generally only found in more expensive CCD systems. In addition to its intelligent transport system, the WideTEK 36C / 48C also features a robust stainless steel paper guide, with a textured surface designed to prevent documents from sticking to the scanning bed – again reducing slip, skew and paper jams and improving your production throughput.
Image Access also has eliminated the need to frequently exchange expensive glass plates, something that is required with most other CIS scanners. The unique glass plate/pressure drum design guides the paper across the glass flat without actually touching it. This means no scratches and no replacements required.
By utilizing an ingenious illumination strategy together with three ultra fast dual light CIS modules, the WideTEK 36C / 48C really achieves scanning speeds faster than most competing CCD scanners. At published, proven scanning speeds; the WideTEK 36C / 48C can provide a throughput that when coupled with a wide format printer will enable you to create a single footprint multi-function system at a very affordable price.
