Fine Color Tones and High Resolution Achieves a maximum optical resolution of 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi. The 1200 dpi primary scan (horizontally across document) is realized with VAROS, the proprietary Canon system short for VAriable Refraction Optical System. VAROS is a two-pass scanning technique that combines the results of the scanning unit's first pass with a second pass that is optically shifted by a half pixel.

Connecting to the Computer Connecting Two or More SCSI Devices When connecting two or more SCSI devices (including this scanner), be careful of the following points. About Daisy Chain Configurations When connecting multiple SCSI devices to the computer, connect them in a series as shown below.
There are two types of terminator: a separate device that is attached to a SCSI device or an On/Off switch built into the SCSI device. This scanner has a built-in terminator. For a daisy chain to operate correctly, the terminator must be set to On for the last SCSI device , and Off for all other SCSI devices.
3: Internal CD-ROM drive (Desktop model with an internal CD-ROM drive) 7: Macintosh CPU • Ensure that you unplug the AC adapter from the scanner before you change the SCSI ID or terminator settings. After resetting them, reconnect the AC adapter and restart the computer.
To set the SCSI ID, move the 1-3 switches with a sharp object, such as the tip of a mechanical pencil. Set the switch positions as below to assign a SCSI ID from 0 to 6. Set the SCSI ID with switches 1-3 indicates the switch position SCSI ID 0 SCSI ID 1 SCSI ID 2 SCSI ID 3...
• Sample Configurations The following examples show typical configurations for the scanner, your computer and other SCSI devices. Scanner Is the Last SCSI Device. Set SCSI ID Terminator Off Terminator On Set the scanner’s terminator to On. Set the IDs of the other SCSI devices to nonconflicting numbers.
Scanner in the Middle of a Daisy Chain (First Position is Recommended) Set SCSI ID Terminator Off Terminator On Terminator Off Set the scanner’s terminator to Off. Set the scanner and other SCSI devices to nonconflicting IDs. Set the terminator of the last SCSI device to On.
SCSI Connector and SCSI Interface Cable Descriptions This scanner is equipped with both a Half Pitch 50-Pin and D-Sub 25-Pin connector (port). The supplied SCSI interface cable has a Half Pitch 50-Pin connector on one end and a D-Sub 25-Pin connector on the other.
WARNING are similar. However, close examination reveals that the pin shapes are different. Be careful when purchasing. • Only high-impedance cables work with the scanner. Ensure that cables other than the supplied SCSI interface cable are of the high-impedance type.
Place the document face down. Orient the document face down on the document glass with the top edge at the back of the scanner (the edge closest to the hinges of the document cover). Align the edges of the document with the alignment mark.
WARNING to A4 or Letter size. • This scanner is equipped with an ultra-sensitive scanning unit. Opening the document cover during scanning, or improperly closing it, may affect the scanning results. If you are scanning thick documents, such as books, that prevent the document cover from closing, cover the document glass with a dark cloth to prevent ambient light from affecting the scan.
To move the scanning unit to the back, first clear all documents from the document glass. Then close the document cover, attach the AC adapter cord to the scanner and plug the power cord into the electrical outlet. After all movement has ceased, lift the document cover to confirm that the scanning unit has correctly returned to the back of the scanner.
Locate the lock switch (between the holes for the hinges) and push it toward the locked mark. Attach the document cover. • Carrying or transporting the scanner without locking the scanning unit may damage it. Be WARNING particularly careful to lock the scanning unit when transporting the scanner in a vehicle.
