2. Setting up the Scanner
Connecting to the Host Computer
This scanner connects to a host personal
computer through a SCSI interface. This
section provides an overview of SCSI, and
explains how to connect the scanner to a host
computer.
What is SCSI?
“SCSI” (Small Computer System Interface)
is an interface standard that is used for highspeed data transfer between a peripheral device
and a host computer.
SCSI Connection Requirements for the Scanner
•
In a SCSI connection, ANSI-compliant
SCSI cables are used to connect one or
more peripheral devices in daisy chain
fashion to the host computer.
•
•
Each device is assigned a unique SCSI
ID (0 to 7), which must be set for the
device before turning on the power and
before turning on the computer.
•
The last device in the daisy chain requires
a terminator.
This scanner complies with the SCSI-2
standard. SCSI-1-compliant peripheral
devices can also be connected and used
with this scanner. The SCSI interface on
the scanner has a 50-pin half-pitch (pin
type) connector. Connect an ANSIcompliant shielded SCSI-2 cable to the
scanner. Note that some combinations of
cables and SCSI boards will not work
together properly, so check this carefully.
•
If you are using a SCSI board and driver
software that supports SCAM, the SCSI
ID of this scanner will be set automatically, so there is no need to set the ID. If
you are using a driver that does not have
a SCAM function, it will be necessary to
set the SCSI ID for the scanner if the
SCSI ID is identical to that of another
device that is connected.
•
The scanner’s terminator can be enabled
or disabled by turning a DIP switch on or
off.
1: SCSI cables
2: Up to 7 devices
3: Terminator
10
Important
❒ If two or more devices in a daisy chain
share the same SCSI ID, misoperation
and data loss may result. Set a unique
SCSI ID for this scanner that does not
duplicate the SCSI ID of any other device.
Connecting to the Host Computer
Important
❒ The total length of the SCSI cables, including the length of the cable inside
the personal computer, should be no
more than 3m (9.8 ft.) when using synchronous transfer, and no more than 6m
(19.7 ft.) when using asynchronous
transfer.
❒ Some combinations of SCSI boards and
peripheral devices that are connected
simultaneously may not work together
properly.
Setting the SCSI ID
A
Turn the rotary switch to set the SCSI
ID number.
Connecting the SCSI Cable
(No Connection to Other Port)
A
Turn off the host computer and all
peripheral devices that will be connected through the SCSI interface.
B
Use SCSI cables to connect the personal computer and the peripheral devices in daisy chain fashion, with this
scanner at the end of the daisy chain.
(Use either of the two SCSI connectors on the scanner.)
C
Set DIP switch 3 to off.
This enables the scanner’s internal terminator. For details on the functions of the
DIP switches, refer to P.43, “DIP
Switches.”
Note
❒ If you change the setting while the
power is on, it is necessary to initialize
the scanner. Refer to P.16, “Initializing the Scanner.”
11
2. Setting up the Scanner
Connecting the SCSI Cable
(Connection to Other Port)
12
A
Turn off the host computer and all peripheral devices that will be connected
through the SCSI interface.
B
Use SCSI cables to connect the personal computer and the peripheral devices in daisy chain fashion, with this
scanner in the middle of the daisy
chain.
C
Set DIP switch 3 to on.
This disables the scanner’s internal terminator. For details on the functions of the
DIP switches, refer to P.43, “DIP
Switches.”

“dpi” is an abbreviation for “dots per inch,” and indicates resolution. A larger value indicates
greater detail.
Functions
Scan
This function scans an original once the scanning area, scanning composition, resolution, and
other values have been set.
When setting these values, consideration should be given to the original that is to be scanned and
to the output device (display, printer, etc.). For example, it is meaningless to scan an original at
high resolution if the resolution of the output device is lower than the scanning resolution,
especially because high-resolution scanning uses a great deal of memory and requires more
processing time.
Scanning Composition
There are three scanning composition modes: binary scanning, halftone scanning, and multivalue scanning.
❖ Binary scanning
This mode scans the original in black and white. This mode is used to scan originals that
consist only of text, line drawings, and other elements that lack intermediate colors.
❖ Halftone scanning
This mode scans the original in pseudo-halftones created by dots. This mode is used to
output an original that contains intermediate colors, such as a photo, on an output device that
can only express binary per pixel, such as a laser printer.
❖ Gray Scale scanning
This mode scans the original with 16 or 256 gradations. This mode is used to output an
original that contains intermediate colors on an output device that can express different
gradations for a single pixel, such as a Dye Sublimation printer or a display.

6. Appendices
Binary Scanning/Threshold
The binary scanning function converts the original into black and white image data. If the original
contains any intermediate colors, they are compared with the threshold value and determined to be
either black or white accordingly. The threshold value can be set to any of 255 gradations; any
intermediate colors that are brighter than the threshold value are scanned as “white,” and those that
are darker than the threshold value are scanned as “black.” This mode should be used to scan
originals that have no intermediate colors and consist of only two colors, such as text or line
drawings.
The threshold value should be set according to the intensity of the original. For example, setting
a high threshold value when scanning faint text will produce text that is much clearer. Conversely,
setting a low threshold value when scanning an original that is on a colored background (such as
text on colored paper) will eliminate the background color from the scan.
There are two modes for the threshold value setting:
❖ Standard mode
Any one of 255 values can be set.
❖ Dynamic threshold mode
This function is valid only when the optional Image Processing Unit Type A is installed.
With this mode, the optimal threshold value (given the brightness of the original) is set
automatically.

Functions
Halftone Scanning
Halftone scanning converts the original into an image consisting of pseudo-halftones produced
by dot shading (in which shading is achieved through combinations of black and white dots, as
in newspaper photographs). This function is used to output an original that has intermediate
tones, such as a photo, on an output device that can only produce monochrome output, such as a
laser printer.
Because halftone scanning expresses pseudo-halftones, it does not require as much memory,
making it effective for filing a large volume of images. There are eleven types of halftones (ten
dot shading patterns and one error diffusion pattern) for selection. It is also possible to scan and
download your own dot shading patterns.
The names in parentheses indicate the names under the ISIS driver.

Gray Scale Scanning
Glay Scale scanning converts an original into image data consisting of 4-bit or 8-bit gradations.
Four bits can express 16 gradations, and eight bits can express 256 gradations. This function is
used to output an original that contains intermediate tones on an output device that can express
intermediate tones for a single pixel, such as a display or a Dye Sublimation printer.
Although a higher number of bits produces higher image quality, it is important to remember that
the processing time will be longer. For example, when an area is scanned using the 8-bit multiscan mode, it requires eight times as much memory as when scanning the same area through
binary scanning or halftone scanning.

Functions
Area Extraction
This function extracts and scans a specified rectangular area within a scanning area.
For example, to scan just the photograph portion of the original shown below, specify the area
where the photograph is located. The rectangular area is specified by specifying the coordinates
of the upper left corner of the rectangle, and the vertical and horizontal lengths.

6. Appendices
Section Area (Multi-area Settings)
This function permits the specification of up to four rectangular areas of any size within the
scanning area, each of which can be set as the scanning area. When overlapping areas are set, the
area that was set last takes priority.
For example, when a single original contains both text and photos, specify rectangular areas for
each, and then set binary scanning mode for the text areas and halftone scanning mode for the
photographs. This function allows each area to be scanned in its respective scanning mode in one
scan.
Limitation
❒ During double-sided scanning, this function is valid only for the front side of the original.
Note
❒ Note that scanning might not be performed in the specified manner if any of the four
rectangular areas overlap. In this case, either decrease the number of rectangles, or
else reduce them in size.
❒ This function is valid only when the optional Image Processing Unit Type A is installed.

Functions
Auto Photo/Letter
This function automatically determines whether the image being scanned is text (binary image) or
photo (intermediate tone image), and scans the text areas in binary scanning mode and the photos
in halftone scanning mode. This function is used in order to automatically scan text in binary
scanning mode and photos in halftone scanning mode. This function allows you to scan an
original that contains both text and photos just once while automatically scanning each type of
area in the appropriate scanning mode without having to make special settings for each.

Resolution
This function permits setting separate resolutions for the main-scanning and the sub-scanning,
over a range of 100dpi to 800dpi (in 1dpi increments) for each. A high resolution setting requires
more free space in memory and requires more processing time.
Basically, when outputting a scanned image that is the same size as the original image, set the
same resolution as that of the output device. Image quality will suffer if the resolution is less than
that of the output device, and it is meaningless to set a resolution that is higher than the resolution
that the output device is capable of. However, if the output image is to be enlarged or reduced
compared to the original, change the resolution by the same ratio.
Limitation
❒ When this function is used during duplex scanning, the maximum image data size for the
reverse side is 360 million bytes.
Note
❒ When using this function, the image on the reverse side might be scanned through the
document, depending on the condition of the original.

Functions
Brightness
The brightness can be adjusted to 255 levels. If a high value is set for the brightness, the image
will become brighter overall. If a low value is set, the image will become darker overall.
When scanning a dark original, set a high value for the brightness; when scanning a bright
original, set a low value for the brightness. For example, if a dark original is scanned normally,
any gradations in the darker portions will be lost and will appear to be solid black in the scanned
image. By increasing the brightness value in this case, the gradations in the darker portion will
also appear in the scanned image. Conversely, if the bright portions of an original become solid
white in the scanned image, lowering the brightness value will bring out the gradations in the
bright portion in the scanned image.
Low brightness
High brightness
Contrast
The contrast can be adjusted to 255 levels. If a high contrast value is set, the resulting image will
have high contrast and will be sharply defined. If a low contrast value is set, the resulting lowcontrast image will have a softer feel.
To produce a sharp image, increase the contrast value, to produce a soft image, decrease the
contrast value. For example, when scanning a photo of metal, glass, etc., set a high contrast value
in order to achieve a sharp feel.

Document Size Detection
This function automatically detects the width of the original, and sends the information to the
personal computer.
Document Size Detection on the Contact Glass
5mm (0.2")
Document Size Detection in the Auto Document Feeder (ADF)
5mm (0.2")
Note
❒ If there is any coloring on the leading edge (5mm, 0.2”) of the original, the size of the
original might not be detected properly.
❒ If the sheets of the original are not set in position properly, the size of the original
might not be detected properly. Line up the edges of the sheets of the original, and
position the guides on both sides so that they are touching the edges of the original and
will ensure that the original feeds straight into the ADF.
❒ This function is valid only when the optional Image Processing Unit Type A is installed.

Erase Background
This function permits selection of the white side dynamic range for scanning.
When Erase Background is disabled
The dynamic range is set so that a white original (D value: 0.07) reaches maximum output.
When Erase Background is enabled
During scanning, the portion of the original that is closest to white is deemed to be white, and
the dynamic range is set so that the portion in question reaches maximum output.
