  • Page 199: Multifeed Detection

    8.4 Multifeed Detection Multifeed refers to the phenomenon, when two or more documents are fed overlapping at once into the scanner. This may cause the loss of important data. To prevent this, this scanner is equipped with a Multifeed detection function. When function is activated, a message will be displayed and the scanning interrupted in case a Multifeed has been detected.
  • Page 200 Check overlapping and [Check overlapping] and [Check length difference], both parameters will be used length difference: for monitoring the fed documents. Length: When checking the document length, select the length difference for which a Mul- tifeed will be detected. Select 10/15/20mm. If the detected document length is smaller than the selected size, it will be recognized as a Multifeed.
  • Page 201 Speficy the detection area. Selected range: Add check mark to this checkbox first. The following setting becomes available. Middle Right Left Detection areas Document Unit: mm Enable/Disable: Select [Enable], if the area from [Start] to [End] is a Multifeed detection area. Select [Disable], if the area from [Start] to [End] is not a Multifeed detection area, but other area is a Multifeed detection area.
  • Page 202 • When both “Start“ and “End“ positions are set to 0 (zero), a multi feed error will be detected over the whole area, regardless of the setting of HINT “Enable“ or “Disable“. • If you wish to deactivate the detection for all of the areas, please select “Disable”...
  • Page 203 Setting Example 2: Left, Disable, Start=0 mm, End=300 mm Middle, Enable, Start=0 mm, End=0 mm Right, Disable, Start=0 mm, End=0 mm Unit: mm When you want to detect overlapping, be sure that paper documents are not clinging to each other. Those clinging documents (glued or with static cling) HINT may cause a lower multifeed-detection ratio.
