 1 Power requirements for SC Xpress models
    2 SmartLF SC Xpress scanners and SmartWorks Pro software scanning at 9600dpi in any colour mode to a TIFF uncompressed file format is restricted to a scan width of 40mm (1.5”) and scan length not exceeding 160mm (6.3”). Scanning larger widths at 9600 dpi or scanning to other file formats is not possible
    3 USB3 is required to achieve uninterrupted maximum scan speeds for all SC Xpress Series scanners at the ‘e’ upgrade level for originals wider than 24″ scanned above 200dpi. Colortrac recommends the software speed or quality settings be used to eliminate stop/start and maximise scan image quality at higher scan dpi/width combinations if a USB3 connection is not available
    4 Thick documents up to 2mm must be flexible. Colortrac does not guarantee quoted speeds for thick media. Thick media should be scanned at reduced speeds to obtain optimal image quality. For heavy and/or thick materials the operator may need to support the document as it enters and exits the scanner. For larger sizes of heavy and/or thick media Colortrac recommend the scanner be placed first on a flat surface and the operator supports the document as it enters and exits the scanner. Colortrac recommends the Paper Return Guide is removed when using heavy and/or thick media in the scanner
