Precautions This section describes precautions to follow when installing the scanner. To ensure the longevity and proper functioning of your scanner, do not install the scanner in the places and environments described below. • Place the scanner away from electrical noise sources, strong magnetic fields, and air flow. If the scanner is used near an air conditioner, copying machine, or TV set, the scanner may operate incorrectly.
Repositioning the Shipping Lock To keep the scanner from being damaged during shipping, the carrier unit is fixed with a Shipping Lock. After placing the carrier unit where it will be installed, change the position of this Shipping Lock as explained below. Place the image scanner on the edge of the desktop so that the left side of the scanner (where the ADF is attached) extends from the desktop.
Cable Connections This section describes how to connect the cables. Connect the cables as follows: Turning the power switch Off Press the “O” side of the power switch to turn the power Off. Power OFF Power switch Power ON Connecting the power cable Connect the power cable to the power inlet of the device and a power outlet.
Connecting the interface cables Connect the SCSI interface cables and secure them. Back of the image scanner Interface To the host system cables NOTICES • Factory default for the SCSI terminator is On. If the scanner is in the middle of the daisy chain or of two devices, turn the scanner termination Off via the operator panel.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS A4 size A standard paper size. Paper size is 210 x 297 mm. A5 size A standard paper size. Paper size is 148 x 210 mm. A6 size A standard paper size. Paper size is 105 x 148 mm. A7 size A standard paper size.
The smallest unit of information in computer memory. A bit is a single digit, either a 1 or a 0, in the binary numbering system. Eight bits equal one byte. Density In this manual, refers to a measurement of the depth of the display. Dither Technique for producing halftone images by representing the entire grayscale with only two pixel levels, black and white.
Error diffusion High-quality halftone (pseudo-grayscale) image production based on black-and-white pixel binarization. A pixel’s optical density and that of adjacent pixels are summed, with black pixels relocated in their order of density as they relate to adjacent pixels. The purpose of this technique is to minimize the average error between read and printed densities. Density data for adjacent pixels is modified by diffusing errors on the objective pixel into several pixels, which are then binarized.
Image processing An image is read with specified parameters. Interface The connection that allows communication from one part of a system to another. For example, electrical signals are transferred between the computer and scanner over an interface cable. Inversion (Reverse-image reading) In reverse-image reading, data is changed from black to white and vice versa.
Manual start mode (<-> automatic start mode) The reading operation is activated by pressing the START button in this mode. Available only when video option board is installed. Mirror image The read image is symmetrically flipped to produce a mirror image of the original detected in the main scanning direction.
Portrait orientation A document is transported and read with the long side parallel to the moving direction. Paper counter Indicates the total number of read document from start of reading until the hopper becomes empty. Read operation Refers to the reading operation including Simplex reading and Duplex reading. RS-232C interface A type of serial interface.
Third Party Interface Optional board provided by Fujitsu or interface board provided by a third party can be installed and used. Time-out limit This is the time the scanner waits for next document insertion after the last document feeding. The scanner returns Paper Empty when no document is set after time-out limit.
