8.15 Document clearance setting Scanned image may be chipped at the bottom area, if the document is fed with large skew. This trouble can be avoided by setting the document clearance wider. Start up the Software Operation Panel. Refer to “8.1 Scanner Settings”...
8.16 Thin Paper Mode If nonstandard thin paper cannot be fed and scanned smoothly, use this mode. In this mode, sheets of paper are fed at a slower speed so that thin paper can be fed and scanned properly. Follow the steps below to switch to the Thin Mode. Start up the Software Operation Panel.
8.17 Soft Pick Setting When a number of sheets are picked at a time and multi-feed is detected frequently, enable this setting. When this setting is enabled, the pick roller does not move up and down at the paper picking to decrease the number of sheets at picking, and multi-feed may decrease.
8.18 Paper Jam Detection You can set the degree of detection sensitivity for a jam at the feeder. Configure the settings for Paper Jam Detection as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel. Refer to “8.1 Scanner Settings” on page 173 Select [Device Setting 2] from left side list in the window, and select [Paper jam detection] from its lower level.
8.19 AutoCrop Boundary Scanning documents using the "Automatic Page Size Detection" function may produce incomplete image data; the edge of the image data may be lost, or shadows may be produced on the bottom or right edge of the data. To prevent or improve such a problem, use this "AutoCrop Boundary." Configure the settings for the AutoCrop Boundary as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel.
8.20 SCSI Bus Width When using the SCSI-connected scanner, you can select a data transfer width. For Kofax VRS, this setting is not displayed. The SCSI Bus Width is auto- ATTENTION matically set to [8 bit]. Configure the settings for the SCSI Bus Width as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel.
8.21 Auto Color Detection You can adjust the slice level for auto color detection. Configure the settings for the Auto Color Detection as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel. Refer to “8.1 Scanner Settings” on page 173 Select [Device Setting 2] from left side list in the window, and select [Auto color Detection] from its lower level.
8.22 Alarm Setting You can make the alarm to sound beeps when a jam or multifeed occurs, as well as disabling the alarm. Configure the settings for the Alarm setting as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel. Refer to “8.1 Scanner Settings”...
8.23 Jam Detection Outside of Scannable Area When Transporting paper If this function is turned On, such a case, in which the documents are fed outside of the scannable area due to over-skew, is judged as a jam. You can turn it On and Off. Configure the settings for the Jam detection outside of scannable area when transporting paper as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel.
8.24 Imprinter Selection You can specify which imprinter to use; Pre-imprinter or Post-imprinter, if you already have installed these options. Configure the settings for the Imprinter Selection as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel. Refer to “8.1 Scanner Settings” on page 173 Select [Device Setting 2] from left side list in the window, and select [Imprinter selection] from its lower level.
8.25 Timeout for Manual Feeding In manual feeding mode, if the scanner is left without loading the next document to scan for an extended time period, the scanner completes the scanning once and cancel the manual feeding mode. The time period is called “timeout”.
8.26 Scan Setting for Document with Tab When the document has tab on the bottom edge of the image, the tab image remain even if the document is scanned with Automatic Page Size Detection. When “Scan Setting for Document with Tab” is specified, the tab image remains in the scanned data but the scanning speed may be rather slow.
8.27 Paper Stop Position at Multifeed Error When a multifeed error is detected by overlapping of documents, the position to stop the documents on which the multifeed occurred can be selected. To configure this setting, [Check by overlapping (US sensor)] must be specified for multifeed detection “8.4 Multifeed Detection”...
8.28 Overscan Control Specify [Optimize] when you use Overscan and the image is partially missing due to an abnormal skew. You can detect abnormal image skew and set sufficient amount of black margins on the top and the bottom so that the whole image is contained. Added margin missing Added margin...
Select [Optimize]. • t is recommended to use Overscan together with “8.15 Document ATTENTION clearance setting” on page 207 (The scanning speed slows down when you select this function). • The scanning speed may slow down depending on the paper size of the documents you scan.
