A well-proven, innovative technology for great wide format image quality. SingleSensor is a US Patent protected Colortrac invention that combines CIS elements and LEDs in a single line for maximum scan accuracy and optimal illumination. Reliable and affordable scanning with a fast return on investment. Get the job done 'super-fast' with no stopping or waiting.
Suitable for high quality scans of wide format maps, site plans, engineering drawings, blueprints, architectural renderings and many other technical documents. Up to 36 inches scan width.

SingleSensor Technology

The SmartLF SC 36 Xpress is an addition to our expanding range of large format scanners that use our SingleSensor (Patent pending) digital imaging technology. The Colortrac invention combines a full document width of individual contact image sensors (CIS) in a robust single-piece unit, enabling a significantly higher optical quality and dramatic increase in pixel alignment stability. The SmartLF SC 36 scanner has 43,200 short image-path sensors that are illuminated by a custom designed bi-directional LED lighting arrangement that also provide "instant-on" low energy illumination making the SmartLF SC 36 Xpress. Shadow effects in folds of creased documents are also reduced by the innovative active pressure roller that gently presses the document against the SingleSensor. These features reduce optical errors to a minimum ensuring all scan and copy data is of the highest possible color and dimensional accuracy. The scanner is designed and manufactured to meet or exceed all relevant international safety and electrical standards.

Dynamic Document Feed

The SmartLF SC 36 Xpress SingleSensor allows the use of a simplified arrangement of rollers to ensure that the document always stays in contact with the optics. Driven rollers either side of the optical path and an active soft pressure roller running the full length of the SingleSensor allow the scanner to dynamically respond and actively work against the optical disturbances caused by document lift and paper creasing. This technology ensures that delicate or fragile media such as newspaper and old blueprints can be safely and accurately scanned without problem.

SuperSpeed PC Interface

The SmartLF SC Xpress large format scanner series are the first scanners to incorporate the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 digital interface.  With a dramatic x10 increase in the internal data transfer rates, the new USB 3.0 interface works at up to 5Gb/sec.  In terms of speed of scan data saved to the computer this represents more than double the previous rate of 28MB/sec (USB2) to 65 -85 MB/sec for USB3 depending on computer manufacturer.  SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is unique to Colortrac and allows the SmartLF SC 36 XPress scanner to work at full speed using higher resolutions on wider documents than ever before.  For those without a USB3 equipped computer SmartLF SC 36 Xpress enhanced USB2 circuitry achieves a 25% improvement in data speed (35MB/sec) above the previously recognised industry average transfer rate of 28MB/sec for a normal USB2 equipped pc.
