WideTEK 48 Book Scanners


WideTEK® 48 Scanner

WideTEK® 48 - Redesigned wide format color CCD scanner for documents up to 48 inch widths

The innovative wide format scanner WideTEK® 48 for documents up to 48 inches wide (1220 mm) is setting new standards in performance and quality.

This very fast but astonishingly quiet 48 inch color scanner combines user-friendliness, production-ready design and compact dimensions in a new class of scanners.

State of the art illumination using bright white LEDs guarantees long lifetime and best scan results at a very low noise level in spite of the high speed.

The cutting edge camera technology, consisting of a dust-protected, hermetically sealed camera box holding three CCD systems, delivers an optical resolution of 1200 x 600dpi.

This very compact device is outfitted with a touch screen and integrated walk-up scanning software.

The integrated walk-up scanning software makes the scanner a truly shared device. It allows the user to scan and send images to a specific destination such as a network printer, any directory in the network, or to a USB stick; without having to work with a client PC. Simply walk up, scan and store or send the image, all through the use of the touch screen.

Special transport rollers with individually spring loaded ball bearing pairs serve as pressure points to ensure the best possible, gentle document transport. This allows a maximum document thickness of 3 mm. A new weight balanced back plate allows users to adjust the strength with which the documents are lifted to the scan plane.

Automatic document size recognition allows operators to pass sensitive documents through the middle of the scan area, protecting document edges from any damage.

The exceptionally high scanning speed, dust-protected and encapsulated optical components and the absence of consumables characterize this highly efficient production-ready device. With a life expectancy of over one million scans, the WideTEK 48 redefines the price/performance ratio in the wide format scanner market.

More Features

High Speed Scanning: Image Accessscanners always run at rated speeds regardless of how powerful your computer is. We do a full scan into the scanner memory at full speed, without any stops. We're the only scanner company that does that. Only the time between scanning and output are dependent upon the transfer speed of the network and the computer, and even our transfer rate is twice as fast as competing products because data is transferred to your workstation at 1 Gigabit speeds, while other scanners use significantly slower transfer rates (1/2 Gigabit or less).

Works Well With Others: Create JPEG, PDF (both searchable and image-only), or TIFF file formats and email or save to USB or network (PC, server, FTP).

Easy to Use: Single button scanning, optional foot pedal, built in touch display.

Great Durability: WideTEK's metal casing resists scratches and dents, and its hermetically sealed optical components translate to less maintenance. We've even designed the case so that it works only with the WideTEK's tools that ship with each unit.

High Duty Cycle: WideTEK scanners are designed for high-volume, professional use. Their duty cycles far exceed that of desktop scanners.

Minimal Space: WideTEK's footprint isn't much larger than the maximum paper width it scans. With a footprint of only 55 x 22 inches, it takes surprisingly little space for full- scale operation.

Clear, Crisp, Colorful Scans: Fast scanning in B&W, grayscale and color, high-quality resolution of up to 1200 by 600dpi. WideTEK's optics include multiple CCD arrays sealed in an airtight camera box for dust-free and quiet operation. We've made it our business for over 15 years now to be experts in image resolution, and since there is some confusion among users regarding this matter, we've provided a white paper that debunks some longstanding myths.

State of the Art Illumination: State of the Art Illumination: WideTEK's bright white LED illumination lasts significantly longer than other lighting systems. LED lights also consume less power and produce far less heat.

Easy Setup: WideTEK scanners connect over your network using standard IP (Internet Protocol) addresses and can be operated by a standard browser without drivers or add-on cards.

No Warm Up Time: WideTEK scanners are ready to scan anytime you are. Other scanners can require several minutes to warm up before use.

Room to Grow: Firmware upgrades are available online and are directly downloadable to the WideTEK using a standard browser.

Environmentally Responsible: We all know that scanning and saving images to email, USB, etc., rather than photocopying or printing saves paper and toner, but it's hard to get a feel for just how much savings are likely.

Remote Scanner Management: Remote Scanner Management: You're in full control from any browser. Change any and all scanner settings remotely or using WideTEK's built-in touch screen.

User Statistics Monitoring: WideTEK lets you manage and monitor the usage, statistics and settings of each scanner you own. The reports are automatically uploaded and available online from your web browser.
