Computer Peripherals - Wide Format Scanners - Colortrac SmartLF SC Xpress Series


The SingleSensor digital imaging technology for the SmartLF SC25 Xpress, SC36 Xpress and SC42 Xpress large format scanners is a patented Colortrac invention. By combining contact image sensors (CIS) in a robust, single-piece design, Colortrac has been able to obtain significantly higher optical quality and alignment stability. 50,400 short image path sensors and a custom designed bi-directional LED lighting arrangement work together to reduce optical errors to a minimum ensuring that all scan and copy data is of the highest possible colour and dimensional accuracy. Shadow effects of folds in creased documents are also reduced by the innovative active pressure roller which gently presses the document against the SingleSensor. The XPress series increases throughput, especially in the 200 ~ 300 dpi range.

SmartLF SC Xpress uses “instant-on” low energy technology and is Energy Star qualified.

The scanner is manufactured to meet or exceed all relevant safety and electrical standards.

Colortrac SmartLF SC 42 Xpress
On introduction, the SmartLF SC Series incorporated many exciting new developments. Now firmly established, Colortrac has released the SmartLF SC Xpress. Up to 200% faster, this upgrade provides significant productivity improvements with the same high quality imaging plus higher scanning speeds at lower dpi's. Fast, high quality scans or copies of wide format maps, site plans, engineering drawings, blueprints, architectural renderings and many other technical documents.


The ‘Xpress’ difference

Colortrac SmartLF SC Xpress Series is now even faster for everyday scanning tasks. At 200 dpi the paper speed has been doubled which means that an A0 / E size document scanned in 24-bit colour now scans at a full 12 inches per second, very nearly the same speed as a monochrome scan. At 300 dpi the speed has also been doubled. Scan speeds at higher dpis are not affected. This performance requires a USB3 enabled computer connection. For USB2 connections these speeds will be halved.

SingleSensor Technology

Colortrac SmartLF SC Xpress Series - A well-proven, innovative technology for great wide format image quality. SingleSensor is a Colortrac invention that combines CIS elements and LEDs in a single line for maximum scan accuracy and optimal illumination. Reliable and affordable scanning with a fast return on investment. Get the job done ‘super-fast’ with no stopping or waiting.

Larger Document Staging Area

The new design incorporates a larger face-upstaging platform to make loading documents into the scanner faster and easier. SC 42 Xpress is the first Colortrac scanner designed specifically to auto-size documents face-up in the centre of the scanner, a change which helps the operator to see what they are scanning and also to load creased documents more effectively. For documents conforming to standard drawing sheet sizes (manual mode) the scanner can accept media in the center of the platform or at the side. An included magnetic paper guide accessory can be used to maximise side margin accuracy where required. With a straight-through paper path the SC 42 Xpress has a maximum media width of 44” (1117mm) and scans documents and maps up to 0.08? (2 mm) in thickness. This is more than enough to meet the requirements of AEC, CAD, GIS and the majority of work done by copyshop or service bureaux.

Dynamic Document Feed

SmartLF SC 42 Xpress SingleSensor allows the use of a simplified arrangement of rollers to ensure that the document always stays in contact with the optics. Driven rollers either side of the optical path and an active soft pressure roller running the full length of the SingleSensor allow the scanner to dynamically respond and actively work against the optical disturbances caused by document lift and paper creasing. This technology ensures that delicate or fragile media such as newspaper and old blueprints can be safely and accurately scanned without problem.

SuperSpeed PC Interface

The SmartLF SC 42 Xpress is the first large format scanner to incorporate the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 digital interface. With a dramatic x10 increase in the internal data transfer rates, the new USB 3.0 interface works at up to 5Gb/sec. In terms of speed of scan data saved to the computer this represents more than double the previous rate of 28MB/sec (USB2) to 65 -85 MB/sec for USB3 depending on computer manufacturer. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is unique to Colortrac and allows the SmartLF SC 42 Xpress scanner to work at full speed using higher resolutions on wider documents than ever before. For those without a USB3 equipped computer SmartLF SC 42 Xpress enhanced USB2 circuitry achieves a 25% improvement in data speed (35MB/sec) above the previously recognised industry average transfer rate of 28MB/sec for a normal USB2 equipped pc. Higher data transfer gives the SmartLF SC 42 Xpress operator the freedom to scan wider and at higher resolutions without affecting productivity. If you have large amounts of archiving then SmartLF SC 42 is the perfect solution.

For USB2 connections these speeds will be halved.

The new SmartLF SC 36 Xpress large format scanner is ideal for Technical and CAD Drawing Offices, Architectural, Engineering, Construction, Facilities Management and Electronic Document Capture (EDC). Using the new SuperSpeed USB3 digital interface and SingleSensor digital imaging makes this wide format scanner the best solution for general purpose Technical Imaging and Color Graphics for documents up to E-size or A0 format.

SingleSensor Technology

The SmartLF SC 36 Xpress is an addition to our expanding range of large format scanners that use our SingleSensor (Patent pending) digital imaging technology. The Colortrac invention combines a full document width of individual contact image sensors (CIS) in a robust single-piece unit, enabling a significantly higher optical quality and dramatic increase in pixel alignment stability. The SmartLF SC 36 scanner has 43,200 short image-path sensors that are illuminated by a custom designed bi-directional LED lighting arrangement that also provide “instant-on” low energy illumination making the SmartLF SC 36 Xpress. Shadow effects in folds of creased documents are also reduced by the innovative active pressure roller that gently presses the document against the SingleSensor. These features reduce optical errors to a minimum ensuring all scan and copy data is of the highest possible color and dimensional accuracy. The scanner is designed and manufactured to meet or exceed all relevant international safety and electrical standards.
