ElarScan A1/C1 KS

ElarScanA1-600KS is a planetary scanner for fast and convenient color, grayscale and black-and-white digitization of books, magazines, catalogs, newspapers and various types of bound documents up to A1 format. The contactless method of digitization eliminates the mechanical impact on the originals providing their safety.

The main features of ElarScan A1-600KS are the presence of a flat folding glass and a reinforced automated cradle, which allows you to gently press the original against the glass from the bottom with the pressing force control and scan massive wide-format originals weighing up to 50 kg. The four-segment LED lighting system is able to provide both uniform lighting and the transmission of textures and artistic features of the originals.

The scanner is equipped with a professional 50MP CMOS RGB camera, which allows for high-quality digitization with the ability to autofocus and automatically adjust to originals of various thicknesses and textures. It is possible to focus on objects up to A3 format and access to the scan system control functions in the embedded ScanImage software.

ElarScan A1-600KS is equipped with a V-shaped automated book cradle, with independent adjustment of the angle and the position of each lodgement. Separate control of each lodgement is carried out using the control panel, which also has synchronous control modes for raising the cradle and flattening glass. The cradle can open at 90, 120 and 180 degrees and is designed to scan originals up to 30 cm thick (15 cm when using flattening glass) and weighing up to 50 kg. Separate lifting of the plates allows scanning the books and bound documents lifting the right and left pages separately. All the main elements of the book cradle design are made of metal and have high resource of work at the maximum load.

The scanner comes complete with an ergonomic cabinet providing the most convenient working height for the operator and is equipped with a convenient drawer for documents or other materials with sliding doors. The cabinet is installed on the mobile chassis that provides convenient movement of the scanner indoors. To set the horizontal position of the scanner, the cabinet is equipped with screw supports. Also, optionally the scanner can be equipped with a flat tabletop for scanning originals in A0 format.

Working with the scanner is as simple as possible, convenient and does not require special skills from the user, allowing you to quickly and efficiently scan, process and transfer any amount of data. User actions are reduced to placing the document on the cradle (face up) and starting scanning in any of the convenient ways: using the built-in control software (including the algorithm for determining page turn), according to the time interval, from the scanner remote control or by lowering the pressure glass.

ElarScan A1-600KS is a fully autonomous device with feature-rich embedded software for mass scanning and subsequent processing of electronic images. Electronic images are saved directly to the scanner memory, an external USB drive, or immediately to the network (to an employee’s personal station, server or cloud storage).

One of the most important advantages of ElarScan A1-600KS is its price: the scanner is one of the most inexpensive A1 + planetary scanners on the market with no consumables that should be changed during operation. Therefore, the scanner is extremely cost-effective with high degree of reliability during intensive operation, and a set of functional features, technical and operational characteristics and software capabilities in the basic configuration that put it several levels higher than its closest competitors, making it a truly universal and professional digitization tool with a shooting range from A3 to A0 format.

A1 600-КС

ElarScan A1-600KS is a standalone scanning device that can operate without connection to a workstation. The scanner can save the received images to external USB drives or to network folders due to the built-in USB 2.0 (3.0) ports and the Gigabit Ethernet network interface.

ElarScan А1-600KS has a camera with high resolution CMOS RGB sensor with high depth of definition and a macro module, which allows digitization of individual areas of the originals with high optic resolution without software interpolation. The scanned original is displayed in real time on a FHD widescreen monitor. The scanner is equipped with a manual drive for adjusting the height of the camera suspension on the rack. To ensure accurate focusing of the optical system on non-contrast originals, the scanner has a built-in laser module for focus area illumination.

The scanner has a 4-segment adaptive LED repro type illumination system that does not have harmful ultraviolet and infrared effects on the originals and ensures even distribution of light on the surface of the original. The lighting system used in ElarScan A1-600KS allows achieving almost complete elimination of ambient light, glare and shadows, even when using glass plates. The backlight system is activated during scanning, but it can be set to constant mode (background lighting mode is also supported). The backlight system consists of four lamps with independent adjustment of the angle of inclination relative to the scanning plane and programmed inclusion control, and smooth adjustment of the glow intensity of each lamp.

The illumination system supports the “anti-glare” mode that helps to automatically eliminate glares on documents with surfaces of high degree light reflection.

Each backlight has the ability to adjust the direction of the light, which eliminates the effect of light on the operator during scanning.


ElarScan A1-600KS is equipped with a V-shaped automated book cradle with opening angles of 180, 120 and 90 degrees and is designed to scan originals up to 30 cm thick (15 cm when using pressure glass) and weighing up to 50 kg, while it is possible to lift panels separately, as well as move or push apart; when the panels are apart, a recess appears under the book spine, which eliminates the risk of damage. Lifting height and position are adjusted on the control panel, fixing in the selected position is carried out automatically. The built-in original hold-down system with a flat fold-back tempered glass plate and an electromagnetic fixing mechanism in the horizontal position allows for effective evening out of the originals’ surfaces. Scanning can be started by pressing the glass, and the glass is lifted automatically after scanning. If you need to work without the glass plate, it can be fixed in the vertical position.

Embedded Software

The high quality, high color accuracy and absence of geometrical distortions of electronic images when scanning on ElarScan A1-600KS results from two main factors: modern optical system and rich embedded software processing capabilities.

The embedded ScanImage software is a complete set of tools that control all stages of digitization: scanning, image processing, quality control and indexing of images.
