ElarScan A2/C2-x50 KS
The ElarScan A2-*50KS planetary scanner, designed for quick and convenient color, grayscale and black-and-white digitization of massive books and folios of archival files, can also work in the standard scanning mode for flat and bound originals up to A2+ format.
The main feature of the *50KS modification is a fully automated, remote-controlled cradle for originals up to 50 cm thick and up to 50 kg. Flat hinged glass allows you to effectively flat pages even with such massive originals.
The design of scanner optical system includes an RGB sensor enabling high-quality digitization with an option to autofocus and automatically adjust to originals of various thickness and textures. The scanner comes with two options of the optic system:
- ElarScan А2-450KS has a professional CMOS RGB 24 MP camera and is ideal for efficient digitization of textual documents and good quality books.
- ElarScan А2-650KS has a professional CMOS RGB 50 MP camera, which expands the possibilities of using the scanner for digitalization of graphics, damaged documents and low-contrast texts.
ElarScan A2-*50KS is equipped with a deep automated book cradle for scanning originals in A2 format up to 50 cm thick and weighing up to 50 kg. The cradle is controlled using the remote control. The flat clamping module made of tempered glass with the horizontal locking mechanism allows you to conveniently and safely flat the surface of the originals when scanning in stream mode. If it is necessary to work without flattening glass, it is fixed in a vertical position and does not interfere with the scanning process.
The scanner operation is extremely simple, convenient and does not require special skills from the user, allowing fast and efficient scanning, processing and transferring any amount of data: user only needs to place the document on the cradle (face up) and start scanning in any of the convenient ways: using the embedded control software, using scan start bottoms on the housing or by the glass plate lowering. The scan time is 0.5 seconds, and the full cycle is up to 4 seconds*, irrespective of the type and size of the originals.
ElarScan A2-*50KS 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).
Functional and technical features of ElarScan A2-*50KS provide scanner versatility, the ability to scan almost any bound and flat documents of the format up to A2 +.
One of the most important advantages of ElarScan A2-*50KS is its price: the scanner is one of the most inexpensive A2+ format 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 puts it several levels higher than its closest competitors.
ElarScan A2-*50KS 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 six built-in USB ports and the Gigabit Ethernet network interface.
ElarScan А2-*50KS has a camera with high resolution CMOS RGB sensor with high depth of definition and a macro module, which allows digitization of small objects and individual areas of the originals with high optic resolution without software interpolation. 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 scanned original is displayed in real time on a FHD widescreen monitor.
The scanner has an 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 illumination system used in ElarScan enables almost complete elimination of ambient light, glares and shadows even when using glass plates. The illumination system is activated during scanning, but it can be set to a constant mode. The lamps offer an option of adjusting the light stream direction.
The built-in original hold-down system with a flat fold-back tempered glass plate and a fixing mechanism in the horizontal and vertical position allows for effective evening out of the originals’ surfaces.
ElarScan A2-*50KS is equipped with an A2+ format deep automated book cradle. Thanks to this, any types of originals up to A2+ can be digitized on the scanner: from a flat document to especially valuable and shabby books up to 50 cm thick and up to 50 kg in weight. The cradle has an independent automatic adjustment of the position of the panels, which guarantees careful handling of the originals when scanning.
With the flattening glass raised, the cradle can be used in a V-shape with opening angles of 180, 120 and 90 degrees for scanning originals with incomplete opening.
The high quality, high color accuracy and absence of geometrical distortions of electronic images when scanning on ElarScan A2-*50KS 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. There is a possibility of administering and controlling the users’ work, there is a configurable file directory structure, and also control of the usage statistics.
