Advanced Features
The Trūper scanner boasts a broad feature set that complements a robust hardware platform. These
advanced features enhance the scanner's ability to provide clean, crisp images. Kofax VirtualReScan Plus
(VRS 4.0) enables many of these features. Other features are part of the scanner driver.
The following list provides a brief description of some of the more unique advanced features of Trūper.
Additional information about these features can be found in other sections of this or other included
manuals on your Trūper Installation Resource CD-ROM.
Auto Color Detect - This feature automatically identifies color documents from bitonal documents while
scanning is in process. Auto Color Detect helps reduce document preparation of mixed batches that
contain both color and bitonal images. Please refer to the VRS manual on your Trūper Installation
Resource CD-ROM.
Auto Orientation - This feature automatically rotates a page that is scanned in a non-standard orientation.
There is no need to perform manual rotation on each image after scanning. Auto Orientation eliminates the
need to pre-sort batches of documents to ensure they are facing the same direction. Please refer to the
VRS manual on your Trūper Installation Resource CD-ROM.
Bar Code Recognition - This image filter recognizes the bar codes in the scanned images. Refer to the
application’s operating manual for how to use the bar code.
Blank Page Deletion - This feature detects and deletes blank pages based on content. Blank Page
Deletion is intended for batch scanning in Duplex mode. Please refer to the VRS manual on your Trūper
Installation Resource CD-ROM.
Background Saturation - Use this feature when scanning documents with color backgrounds. Saturating
or “smoothing” a document image changes the document background into one uniform color. “Smoothing”
refers to the automated process of creating a fixed, uniform background. This process removes both
scanning and paper non-uniformity and will allow the image to be compressed more effectively. Please
refer to the VRS manual on your Trūper Installation Resource CD-ROM.
Multicolor Dropout - This feature removes specific and multiple colors from an image. Multicolor Dropout
can be used in simplex and duplex scanning with independent colors dropped out on either side. Please
refer to Appendix 2 - Multicolor Dropout (MCD) and Single Color Dropout sections of this manual (starting
on page 123).
Double Feed Recovery - This feature detects the double feeding of documents and allows the operator to
correct the missfed documents without stopping the scanning application. Without Double Feed Recovery,
the scanner operator may have to rescan the entire batch.
 Note
Auto Color Detect, Auto Orientation, and Blank Page Deletion are VRS Plus features only.

Document Preparation
Prepare the documents you want to scan according to the guidelines and recommendations in this section.
General Guidelines
Do not scan official documents or copyrighted material:
• Do NOT scan currency.
• Do NOT scan copyrighted material or the work of others except for private use or when
authorized by the copyright owner or owners.
• Do NOT scan certificates, licenses, passports, or official or private documents except when
such work is authorized.
Guidelines for Using the ADF
For best results, follow these guidelines for documents that will be scanned using the ADF (Automatic
Document Feeder):
Caution
Prior to scanning with the ADF, remove all staples and paper clips from sheets.
Recommended paper: Plain paper with a maximum sheet thickness of 2.0 to 5.9 mils (0.05 to 0.15 mm)
and weight of 10.6 to 34 pounds (40 to 127 grams/meter2). 1 mil = 1/1000 inch. The weight in pounds of
paper represents the weight of 500 sheets in the “basic sheet size” of the paper, in this case 17 x 22 inches
(432 x 559 mm). The basic sheet size is not the same for all types of paper.
Acceptable document size for the ADF:
1.90 - 11.70 inches (40 - 297 mm)
2.75 - 25.00 inches (70 - 635 mm)
Feeding

www.bbhscanners.com
51 of 142
Glued or curled documents may cause a paper jam or damage in the ADF unit.
The height of the documents placed in the feeder tray must not exceed the paper limit mark that
appears on the right side of the document guide. (See the diagram on page 57.)
The following chart indicates the maximum number of sheets that can be loaded on the feeder tray:

Types of Documents to Avoid in the ADF
The following types of documents may cause jams in the ADF or may cause the ADF to feed more than
one sheet at a time:
• Overhead projector sheets, other plastic films, cloths or metallic sheets
• Paper with irregularities such as tabs, staples, paste and similar items
• Documents with wet ink
• Thick or irregular documents such as envelopes or documents that are glued together
• Thermal or heat sensitive paper
• Tracing paper
• Copying paper such as carbon paper
• Damaged or wrinkled documents
• Photographs
• Coated paper
• Thick plastic cards such as credit cards or identification cards
• Torn sheets and documents with notches or holes, or punched or perforated sheets
• Extremely smooth or shiny paper
• Paper that is highly textured
• Paper with carbon sheets
• Carbonless (NCR) paper
If a jam occurs in the document feeder, reduce the number of sheets loaded on the feeder to about 20.
If a paper jam or feeding of more than one sheet occurs, clean the rollers as described beginning on
page 75.
If the document is not properly scanned, scan the documents by feeding individual sheets manually into
the ADF.
www.bbhscanners.com
53 of 142
Using the Trūper ADF
The Trūper ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) enables multiple sheet scanning. For the best results when
scanning multiple sheets, follow the document preparation recommendations and procedures as described
in “Document Preparation” on page 51. To use the Multifeed Ignore feature, refer to page 62. To load
documents in the ADF, perform the following procedure:
Caution
Prior to scanning with the ADF, remove all staples and paper clips from sheets.
1
Separate documents that have been stapled or clipped together. Remove glued documents and
documents that are curled; these types of document may cause a paper jam and damage the unit.
1. Fan the stack of documents to
separate all the sheets. Be sure
the edges of the sheets do not
stick together.
2. Hold both edges of the sheets and
bend the documents.
3. To flatten the documents, hold
firmly then pull them apart.
Repeat these steps as necessary to be
sure the stack of documents is completely
separated.
2
Carefully align the documents.
www.bbhscanners.com
54 of 142
3
Adjust the document guides on the ADF so that they are slightly wider than the size of the
document.

When scanning documents that are longer than the feeder tray, you can pull out the feeder
extension tray, which is located near the edge of the feeder tray. The extension tray will support
documents up to 15 inches (381 mm) long.
To handle longer paper in the exit tray, extend the exit stopper. Adjust the position of the exit
stopper so that it will accommodate the length of the documents. The exit stopper is adjustable to
17 inches (432 mm). When scanning a document longer than 17 inches (432 mm) or A3 size (420
mm), fold down the exit stopper so that the longer paper will fit in the exit tray.

Clearing Paper Jams in the ADF
If a paper jam occurs in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), the jam is often the result of loading torn
documents, documents with thin paper, or documents that are creased or curled on the edge going into the
feeder. For information on how to prepare documents for scanning with the ADF, see “Document
Preparation” on page 51.
If a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed sheet or sheets using one or both of the following procedures:

STOP/START Button Operation
The scanner STOP/START button has different functions depending on the mode of operation.
Emergency Stop mode (default)
If the scanner is running and feeding paper, press the blue STOP/START button to immediately stop the
paper in the scanner. This is the default mode of operation.
Follow the Clearing Paper Jams steps to remove the paper jammed in the scanner.
Multifeed Ignore
Multifeed Ignore enables you to allow a single page to go through the scanner without having the scanner
stop for a multifeed condition. Multifeed Ignore can be used with envelopes, documents with attached
Post-it notes, documents with photographs or any other document that is comprised of two overlapping
items. The Multifeed Ignore function works for only the top document in the scanned batch, once the
scanner has been set up for Multifeed Ignore. If you require multiple documents to go through the scanner
that will trigger the scanner to stop because of a multifeed, consider modifying the multifeed settings. Refer
to “Detect Double Feed” on page 67 for instructions on how to do this.
If a multifeed error occurs, remove the document from the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) by opening
the ADF or by pressing the STOP/START button.
Press and hold the STOP/START button for 2 seconds until the LED light alternates between green and
orange. When this occurs, the scanner is in Multifeed Ignore mode. Re-insert the document in which you
wan to ignore the multifeed on top of the document stack and place on the ADF.
Either re-initiate the scan within your scanning software, or the scanner will automatically begin scanning
again.
 Note
The Multifeed Ignore function only works for one document at a time. Once a document goes
through, the scanner will stop if a new multifeed condition occurs.
To clear the Multifeed Ignore feature, open either the imprinter door, the top of the ADF or the bottom of the
ADF.

Scanner Manual Feed Setting
You can use the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) to scan a document one sheet at a time. This setting
is not recommended for multiple or batch feeding; the bottom feeder roller is dropped, making it easier to
scan thicker documents through the ADF.
To scan a single sheet manually, perform the following procedure:
1
Set the feed selector switch to MANUAL. The feeder will adjust automatically to the manual feed
position.
2
Adjust the document guides so that the space for the document is slightly wider than the size of the
document.

to be notified. The default setting for this function is stop.
 Note
With this function, ultrasonic waves are aimed at the document to detect double feed by the level at
which the waves pass through the sheets. The function can detect double feed even when sheets
are superimposed exactly on top of each other, but it may not be detected properly with some paper
thicknesses and when creasing and other factors are present.
When important documents are to be scanned, check the number of document sheets and the
number of scanned image sheets.
When scanning a document containing paper in different sizes, double feed can be detected when
this function is selected.
The default for Detect Double Feed is ON.
1. Navigate to your scanning application and select Settings.
2. Click the More button in the Settings dialog box.
3. Select the Detect Double Feed button in the Feeding Features section of the Advanced

Changing the Background Color
You can select the background reference color for the documents you scan. The background reference
color is the color of the plate that is behind the document. Depending the type of document being scanned
and the features of your scanning application, the background color is important because it may affect the
cropping quality of the scanned image. For example, when VRS is selected, crop filters may not work
properly if the black background is not selected. In addition, the white background color may affect the use
of other scanning features that need to be resolved within the scanning applications feature settings.
The default background color has been set to black. You can set the background color to white or black. To
change the background color and then change the color reference plates to match the color selected with
the reference plates. Follow the procedures in the next two sections.

The default values for Hue, Saturation and Value are typically accurate. However, if the dropout color
requires adjusting, the Hue, Saturation and Value numbers can be modified manually.
4. If desired, do one of the following:
• Adjust the numbers in Hue, Saturation and Value text boxes.
 Note
Hue determines the color and can contain values of 0-3601. Saturation defines the intensity of the
color and can contain values of 0-1000. Value controls the brightness of the color and can range
from 0-1000.

Appendix 3—Shading Adjustment
About Shading Adjustment
What Is the Purpose of Shading Adjustment?
The process whereby variations in the distribution of the scanning lamp’s quantity of light are transformed
into a fixed output within the scanning range is known as shading adjustment. Shading adjustment can be
performed using the Trūper User Utility and the special shading paper that is provided with the scanner.
When Is Shading Adjustment Required?
Perform shading adjustment when the density of the scanned images is uneven and the image displays
perpendicular lines, when colors in some parts of the scanned image are extremely different from what is
expected, or when the image quality fails to be improved even after cleaning inside the scanner.
Shading Adjustment Procedure
Preparation: Before performing shading adjustment, thoroughly clean the scanner’s drive rollers,
reference plates and ADF glass areas. If shading adjustment is carried out while these parts are still dirty, it
will not be possible to eliminate the lines that form on the scanned images. Follow the cleaning procedures
beginning on page 77.
1
Click the
icon to open the Trūper User Utility.
2
Click the User Shading button on the main menu and follow the instructions. See also “User
Shading” on page 95.
 Note
If the scanned images are still lined after shading adjustment has been performed and if these lines
are not eliminated even after the ADF glass areas have been cleaned, it means that the shading has
not been compensated properly. Clean the parts again and perform the shading adjustment
procedure again.
Additional shading paper for shading adjustment is available from the Böwe Bell + Howell Scanning
Essentials online store at http://webstore.bbhscanners.com or from the reseller where you
purchased the Trūper scanner. See also the “Consumable Parts and Accessories List” on page 13.

Appendix 4—Adding Memory
The scanner package includes 64 MB of base memory installed on the interface board. Some scanning
work may require additional memory depending on variables such as the size of the sheets to be scanned
and the image resolution settings. For example, two-sided scanning of larger sheet sizes such as A3 or
color scanning at a resolution of 600 DPI may require additional memory.
If you need additional memory, you will need to purchase the Memory Upgrade Kit, part number S006110.
To add memory, please read the following information and follow the installation procedures.
Warning
The intended use of the following information or procedure is for individuals whom are familiar
with installing memory modules, such as memory on a PC. If you are hesitant in proceeding,
please seek out a qualified service provider or professional individual.
Caution
Contains parts and assemblies susceptible to damage by electrostatic discharge (ESD).
