Copiscan II 6338
Supports scanners such as the 6338 duplex model. Wow, what a scanner!
Some of the advanced features of these scanners are:
  • Automatic Document Feeder - two versions of the feeder, the Accufeed and the Accufeed Plus are available with 50 and 500 sheet capacity respectively.
  • Automatic Border Detection - the scanner is capable of recognizing the size of the paper being scanned and automatically adjusts the scan window to the appropriate size for the document.
  • Duplex operation - scans both sides of the document in a single pass.
  • Hardware based image compression - the scanner can return various compressed image formats (CCITT G3, CCITT G3-2D, CCITT G4) as well as uncompressed data.
  • Barcode/Patchcode decoding - the scanner can recognize and decode various bar and patch codes and return the decoded data.
