The SmartLF I Series – great scanners made even better

The Colortrac SmartLF SCi series scanners are perfect for everyday scanning tasks. An A1 / D size document can be scanned in full color at 12 inches per second, only 1 inch per second slower than its black and white scan speed. Connection to the host computer is straightforward and uses a standard USB 3.0 cable which is supplied with the scanner.

SingleSensor Technology

Colortrac SmartLF SCi series scanners feature one-piece scanning sensors spanning the full scan width of the device. Only from Colortrac, the appropriately named SingleSensor combines sensors and illumination in a single scan line for unbeatable ‘all-over’ scan accuracy and best-possible document illumination. Simple and reliable, SCi series scanners deliver high-quality scanning at an affordable cost.

NEW SmartWorks Imaging

Optimized all the way through, SmartWorks Imaging is clearer and easier to navigate than SmartWorks Pro. With a faster performance, revised preset control, better printer drivers and a new multi-page thumbnail pop-out feature, SmartWorks Imaging is the perfect productivity partner for SmartLF SCi and SmartLF SGi large format scanners.

LINK Remote Control

Work smarter with LINK. This portable tablet app works with any computer already connected to the scanner and running SmartWorks Imaging to bring effortless control of the scanner to your fingertips. Use LINK to reduce body movement and to improve operator comfort while scanning.

Large Document Staging Area

SmartLF SCi scanners have a large, easy-to use staging platform that accepts documents for scanning face-upwards. Specifically designed to auto-detect the size of documents placed in the center of the scanner, documents can be loaded and prepared for scanning in just a few seconds. Documents conforming to standard drawing sheet sizes (manual mode) can be placed in the center or to the side depending on the choice of software. Magnetic paper guides are also provided ot make positioning easier. SCi 25 scanners have a maximum media width of 27” (686mm) and are able to scan documents and maps up to a thickness of 0.08″ (2 mm).

Dynamic Document Feed

Unlike scanners using staggered sensors SmartLF SCi benefits from a simplified pressure roller arrangement to ensure that the document always stays in contact with the optics. The rollers either side of the scan line and the active soft pressure roller running the length of the SingleSensor are all motor driven allowing the scanner to dynamically respond and actively work against optical disturbances caused by creases and uneven documents. This unique technology ensures that delicate or fragile media such as newspaper and old blueprints can be safely and accurately scanned without problem.

SuperSpeed PC Interface

SmartLF SCi 25 uses a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 digital interface that allows the scanner to work at full speed on full width documents or to scan smaller documents at higher resolutions more quickly. Improved productivity is easy to achieve with the time-saving innovations built into every Colortrac I series scanner.

Notes 1 Power requirements for SCi models
2 SmartLF SCi 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 SCi 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

The tablet holder included with all SCi series scanners accepts portable tablet devices running the new LINK software. The mount benefits from a washable and reusable fixing system that allows the mount to removed for scanner servicing.

Document Return Guide (option)

SmartLF SCi 25 has an optional Document Return Guide that allows users to have scanned documents directed over the top of the scanner to the front for easy retrieval.  It also allows users to place the scanner on desktops or on Floor Stands against walls to minimize the overall footprint and to maintain the operators ease of use when space around the scanner is restricted.

 

Floor Stand (option)

A Floor Stand minimizes the installed footprint of your wide format scanner and positions the document feed at a comfortable and convenient height.  A basket catches scanned documents as they are ejected from the scanner and collects them at the back of the scanner for recovery later.


 

 

PC and LCD Flat Screen Mounting Option for Floor Stand (option)

PC and LCD flat screen mounting option combines wide format scanner and computer into a self-contained scan processing station that can be moved around an office as required.  The PC and flat screen mounting kit requires the floor stand (see above). Monitor bracket accepts VESA standard monitors and has eight holes arranged in two squares, four at 75mm and four at 100mm measured horizontally and vertically between the centres.
*Note: the PC, LCD flat screen, mini-keyboard and mouse are not included.

 

Repro Stand (option)

An alternative floor stand that holds the scanner above most popular large format printers including products from HP, Canon, Epson and other printer manufacturers.  Repro Stand conveniently holds a PC, flat screen and mini-keyboard and minimizes the combined footprint of scanner and printer creating a practical, high productivity workstation. Scanner height is adjustable through four height settings. There is no limit to the width of the printer. VESA monitor fixings as above.
*Note: the PC, LCD flat screen, mini-keyboard and mouse are not included.
