unattended volume scanning. It features 600 dpi optical resolution, 65-inch
(1651 mm) long document scanning support, and has a throughput run of 15
pages (simplex) or 30 images per minute (duplex) in color.
Features of the ArtixScan DI 2125c
The ArtixScan DI 2125c comes with several important features, including the
following:
•
Portable, compact and convenient — With a perfect small size, the ArtixScan
DI 2125c reforms your imagination about a sheet-fed scanner. From the office
to the home, the coffee shop to the hotel, the ArtixScan DI 2125c easily
affords users portable and mobile opportunities for document capture on the

•
Duplex scanning in a single pass— Allows to scan both sides of one sheet in
a single pass. With this feature, the scanner can handle up to 40 ipm in
grayscale/black & white and 30 ipm in color at 200 dpi.
•

feeder can hold up to 20 sheets of papers (0.05" /1.25 mm thickness) at a
time, supporting dimensions from 3.15" x 2.1" (80 mm x 52 mm) to 8.5" x
65" (216 mm x 1651 mm).

New and Advanced Microtek ScanWizard DI software — All-in-one control
panel offers a host of features and image adjustment controls. Supporting the
TWAIN driver, ScanWizard DI also features full document scanning tools and
on-screen proofing. Its multi-scanning area and preview option allow you to
obtain quick scans in the preview window. It comes out several distinguished
advantages:
–
Barcode Separator — With this feature, you can batch scan documents
without starting and stopping each time a new file begins by using
barcode numbers on the documents. It saves you huge amounts of time
and money to organize, to index and to search files of documents in
seconds, enhancing the efficiency and productivity of file management.
–
Remove Blank Page — With this feature, blank pages are automatically
detected and removed by the software when scanning a stack of
documents. This function is quite helpful especially when users are
scanning double-sided documents and some of the pages only have text
on the front side.
–
Remove Punch Hole — With this feature, the software automatically
detects the location of the punch holes on the scanned documents and
fills them in white. This function works for most common hole puncher
standards.
–
Paper count — The paper count allows user to keep track of all scan
actions from both flatbed and ADF. This feature helps to estimate when
you may need to replace the rubber or separation pad, or to apply
maintenance and service to your scanner, making the use of your scanner
more effectively.
–
Save multiple images as a single file — This advanced feature allows
user to save multiple scanned images as a single file, depending on the
number of the scanned images that are defined for document archival.
–
Auto-crop and auto-deskew — The auto-crop function automatically
detects the size of the original image, crops the full scan frame to fit the
image, and removes unwanted black borders. The auto-deskew function
automatically corrects distorted images for proper alignment.
–
Color dropout — Red, green and blue colors can be dropped out to allow
for clearer and more accurate forms processing with problematic color
documents.
–
Preset Setting — This feature allows you to save the predefined scanning
values, and then retrieve them later for scanning same types of materials,
which brings fast and convenient access for users.
–
Document Enhancement — This feature brings out and improves the
readability of text in a document that includes other elements such as
color, pictures, or graphs.

11. Click the Barcode Frame tool button to adjust the size of the barcode frame
(enclosed within the red dotted lines and labeled with the tag “BarCode”).
Drag on the edge or corner to determine the final size of the actual scan for
the barcode.
If you have more than one page with a barcode on, make sure if the selected
area of the barcode frame covers enough space. If not, when it performs a
scan job, your scanner will not detect the barcode which appears outside the
selected area of the barcode frame.
12. Click the Scan To button to start scanning.
If the “Save Barcode as Directory” is checked, the program will recognize and
use the barcode on the scanned document to generate a file directory, where
the scanned document will appear with any predefined prefix and/or serial
number.

If the “Save Barcode as Directory” is unchecked, the program will recognize
and use the barcode on the scanned document to name the scanned

Utilizing Scanned Documents
Depending on your needs, you may save your scanned documents into the
following several ways:
Scanning for Archiving
The archiving function allows the scanner to scan documents for recording
purposes. For instance, an image “record” can be kept of multiple-page legal
documents or of other important documents, such as birth certificates and tax
records.
1.
Load the documents to be scanned into the Document Feed Tray.
2.
Launch ScanWizard DI in stand-alone mode by clicking the program icon on
the desktop.
3.
Follow the procedures (steps 3 through 7) for “Scanning a Stack of
Documents” to specify your scanning requirements.
4.
Click the Scan To button to open the “Scan To: Save As” dialog box.
In the “Scan To: Save As” dialog box, specify the following settings:
a)
Key in your preferred
file name in the “File
prefix” edit box, or use
the default “Image” as a
root file name.
b)
Select your required
export file format. Save
the file as TIF, PDF, or
DCX, which enables the
“Save multiple images
as a single file” option
in the next step.
c)
Check the “Save
multiple images as a
single file” option to
store all the scanned
images as a single file if
desired.
If you scan the documents through the ADF and enable “Save multiple
images as a single file”, you are allowed to specify how many images you
would like to be saved in a single file after scan.
Check the “Every %image(s) into a file “ option, and then enter your
desired number in the edit box directly or click the up/down arrow to
increase/decrease the number. The range is from 2 to 100 images.
ArtixScan DI 2125c User's Manual
27
5.
Click the Save button.
The originals are sequentially scanned until the stack of documents is
depleted; when finished, all the scanned images are saved as a single file.
When the Barcode Separator function is checked, the “Scan To: Save As” dialog
box should look like the one as shown below. The “Auto filename” option will be
replaced by the “Save Barcode as Directory”.
Save Barcode as Directory: If “Save Barcode as Directory” is checked, the value of
the scanned barcode is saved and used as a file directory. If unchecked, the value
of the scanned barcode is saved and used as a file’s name.
When “Save Barcode as Directory” is checked, you have to assign at least one of
the “File Prefix” or ”Serial No.” to be your output filename. They cannot be null
at the same time.
If “Save Barcode as Directory ”is unchecked and if you do not assign either one of
the “File Prefix” or “Serial No.” to be a file’s name, the new saved file will
overwrite the old one.
Note: No matter if you check “Save Barcode as Directory” or not, it is strongly
recommended to check “Serial No.” in order to add it as part in your file’s name.
For if you do so, the system will automatically generate a sequential number based
on when the file is saved. Otherwise, if you do not do so, when you scan another
document with the same barcode value as that on the old one and you forget to
name it in different file prefix, the new scanned document will overwrite the old
one immediately.
