Understanding SCSI connections
Read the following sections to determine how to set up your SCSI
devices and whether you need any optional SCSI cables.
Daisy Chain
The SCSI interface allows you to connect up to seven devices (such
as a scanner, hard disk, CD-ROM, and so on) to the computer, in what
is called a “daisy chain” arrangement. Only the first SCSI device in
a daisy chain is connected to the computer; each of the other devices
is connected to another SCSI device.

SCSI Cables
You may need to purchase SCSI cables before setting up your SCSI
daisy chain. Be sure the SCSI cable connectors are suitable for your
hardware, depending on the maker of your SCSI device and SCSI
interface board.
SCSI ID and terminator
Each device has a SCSI ID number: the computer is usually
number 7, and each of the other devices must have a different
number between 0 and 6. Also, the first device and the last device
in the chain (not including the computer) must have a terminator.
No other device can have a terminator, or if a terminator does
exist, it must be turned off or removed.
Setting the SCSI ID number
The scanner's default SCSI ID number is 2.

Scanning by Pressing the Start button
You can open EPSON TWAIN, start scanning, and have the
scanned image sent to a certain application, simply by pressing
the ] Start button on your scanner. To use this feature, you need
to install PageManager for EPSON, or other Start button
compatible software. The following occurs:
❏ Windows 98, or EPSON Scanner Monitor software on an
operating system other than Windows 98, detects when the
] Start button is pressed and sends information to the Start
button compatible application, such as PageManager for
EPSON.
❏ The Start button compatible application will automatically
open EPSON TWAIN, scan the image and process it in the
way the application is designed.
Note:
❏ You need to setup the Start button compatible software before using
this feature. See Chapter 5 and the documentation that comes with
the application.
❏ The scanned image will be handled by the software to its maximum
capability. For example, using PageManager for EPSON, you can
send the scanned image to a printer to print, or convert your scanned
OCR image to text format and paste it in a wordprocessing
application—all by simply pressing the ] Start button.

Sizing Up Your System
Your scanner is sufficient for most scanning needs, but if you are
not satisified with the quality of the images on your monitor or
with the speed of image processing, read this section. While it
does not contain specific recommendations, it describes various
possibilities for improving your scanning system. For further
information, seek advice from your dealer or an experienced
scanner user.
RAM and hard disk size
Scanned images use much more memory than text files, so
you may need more RAM (Random Access Memory) in your
computer and a larger hard disk than you have used previously.

Accelerator boards
In addition to memory, processing speed is important because
large files take longer to process than small ones. Therefore, you
may want to add an accelerator board to your computer.
Video cards
A video card that is sufficient for text may not be good enough
for displaying graphic images, especially in color. If all your
scanned images look coarse on your monitor, you may want to
upgrade your video card. You will need 24-bit color, also called
true color or millions of colors, to make the highest quality image
reproductions.
Monitors
The resolution of your monitor affects the quality of the image
you see. Consider a high resolution monitor if you do precise color
work, but also be sure you have a high quality video card.
File compression software
Many different programs are available to make image files
smaller for storage or transmission. For example, some
compression software can store a 3MB image file on a 1.44MB
floppy disk, and compress images and restore them with no loss
of data or quality; others compress images more, but the restored
file is not exactly the same as the original. The difference between
the original and restored files is, however, almost unnoticeable.

A method of adjusting the color image data for a particular type of device so that
the reproduction results are as close as possible to the original colors.
color separation
A process of converting full-color images into a limited number of primary colors.
Additive primary colors (red, green, and blue) are used by the scanner, and the
subtractive primary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow) plus black are used for
printing press separation.
ColorSync
Color management system for Macintosh that is designed to help you get
WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) color output. This software displays
colors on your screen as they are on the scanned documents, or prints colors as
you see them on your screen.

previewed or scanned.
monochrome
Black and white images, or images represented only by the intensity of
luminosity.
OCR
Optical Character Recognition. The technology that allows computers to “read”
text from physical objects. OCR requires a graphical representation of text to
interpret, which usually comes from a scanned image.
page sequence
The type of color scanning in which the entire image is scanned once for each
separate color.
pixel
Short for picture element. Each image is composed of a number of pixels. Pixels
are also counted in units of dots.

primary colors
Basic colors. See additive primary colors and subtractive primary colors.
resolution
Indication of how finely an image is resolved into pixels. Measured in dots per
inch (dpi), pixels per inch (ppi), or samples per inch (spi).
scan
An operation performed by the sensor and the carriage. The image is divided
into pixels by scanning.
scanning area
The physical size of the image that can be scanned by the scanner.
SCSI
Small Computer System Interface. This is one method used to connect your
computer to peripherals such as scanners, hard disk drives, CD-ROM drives, and
so on.
SCSI ID

each other. If the same ID number is used by two devices in the same daisy chain,
the devices cannot operate properly.
sRGB
A standard color space used as the default color space within the Windows 98
color management system (ICM 2.0).
subtractive primary colors
The colors of cyan, magenta, and yellow (CMY) - which produce black when
mixed in certain amounts. In printing, black is often added to give more definition
as mixing of actual inks cannot produce pure black.
terminator
A device that stops electronic signals, and prevents them from proceeding or
returning to other devices. This is necessary to stop a signal from continuously
bouncing between devices.
threshold
A reference point that is used to determine whether data will be processed as
“on” or “off”. In the case of color image data, “on” means that a certain color will
appear in a pixel or dot, and “off” means that color will not appear there.
tone correction
A method of adjusting the tone curve so that the reproduction results on different
types of output devices have gradations similar to the original image.
tone curve
The graph that shows the contrast ratio between the input (original image) and
output (image data) in image processing.
