Paper size is 210 x 297 mm. A5 size A standard paper size. Paper size is 148 x 210 mm. A6 size A standard paper size. Paper size is 105 x 148 mm. A7 size A standard paper size. Paper size is 74 x 105 mm. A8 size A standard paper size. Paper size is 53 x 74 mm. Abrasion counter Counts the cumulative number of documents read to indicate when belts/rollers should be replaced. The number of read documents accumulates until an operator resets the counter. The counter should be reset when these consumables are replaced. ASCII The acronym for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. ASCII is a set of 256 codes (numbered 0 to 255) used to communicate information between a computer and another device such as a scanner. Automatic separation An image processing method in which the scanner automatically detects difference between text and photos, and chooses the threshold accordingly. Automatic separation allows the scanner to switch between line mode and half tone mode in one pass. Automatic start mode (<-> manual start mode) In this mode, the reading operation is activated only by issuing the the START command. Backside reading = Back-side scanning Refers to reading the backside of the document, specifically in Duplex reading mode. GL-1 Bit The smallest unit of information in computer memory. A bit is a single digit, either a 1 or a 0, in the binary numbering system. Eight bits equal one byte. Density In this manual, refers to a measurement of the depth of the display. Dither Technique for producing halftone images by representing the entire grayscale with only two pixel levels, black and white. Double feed detection A scanner function which detects the accidental feeding of multiple sheets by the ADF unit. Can be turned on or off by the operator. Double Letter Size A standard paper size used in the U.S.A. and othe countries. Paper size is 11 x 17 inches. dpi Dots per inch. Dropout color A color which is used in the document but does not appear in the read image. Duplex reading mode A reading mode in which both sides of the document are read. Equipment Error An error that cannot be corrected by the operator. Call CE. GL-2 Error diffusion High-quality halftone (pseudo-grayscale) image production based on black-and-white pixel binarization. A pixel’s optical density and that of adjacent pixels are summed, with black pixels relocated in their order of density as they relate to adjacent pixels. The purpose of this technique is to minimize the average error between read and printed densities. Density data for adjacent pixels is modified by diffusing errors on the objective pixel into several pixels, which are then binarized. This maintains high grayscale levels and resolution during reading, while suppressing more patterns by dotted halftone images such as newspaper photographs. FB In this manual, FB means flat bed. Filtering A correction method that improves the read quality of handwritten documents. The read quality of images written in pencil or ball-pointed pen depends on the reflective light characteristics of the specific ink or lead used. Dropped pixels may produce outlines, gaps, or thin, barely connected lines due to uneven optical density. Filtering detects areas lighter than their surroundings and increases their density to improve image clarity. Front-side reading = Front-side scanning Refers to reading the front side of the document, specifically in Duplex reading mode. Halftone processing Any method used to reproduce a photograph which includes a shade as an image composed of dots, namely, a binary image. Dithering and error diffusion processing are examples of halftone processing. Hexadecimal A base-16 numbering system (also commonly referred to as hex numbers). Since a base-16 system requires 16 digits, numbers 0 through 9 and letters A through F are used. It is convenient to express binary numbers in hexadecimal because fewer digits are required. Image emphasis Density is decreased for lighter but not completely white areas adjacent to black areas. Weakening this emphasis eliminates spot noise or produces softened images. GL-3 Image processing An image is read with specified parameters. Interface The connection that allows communication from one part of a system to another. For example, electrical signals are transferred between the computer and scanner over an interface cable. Inversion (Reverse-image reading) In reverse-image reading, data is changed from black to white and vice versa. IPC preset mode While reading binary images, it is necessary to set the scanner according to the quality of the sheet to be read. In this mode, these settings can be performed in advance by corresponding each setting to a pattern number. IPC-4D Image processing option of this scanner. IRAS Initialization of the hardware. Landscape orientation A document is transported and read with the long side vertical to the moving direction. Letter size A standard paper size used in the U.S.A. and other countries. Paper size is 8-1/2 x 11 inches. Linedrawing mode Selecting linedrawing mode makes threshold and contrast settings effective but prevents brightness from being set. The specified threshold value determines whether black or white pixels are scanned. Line drawing mode is therefore appropriate for scanning text and line art images. Manual Feed mode = Manual Mode Requires the operator to feed each document manually into the ADF paper chute. GL-4 Manual start mode (<-> automatic start mode) The reading operation is activated by pressing the START button in this mode. Available only when video option board is installed. Mirror image The read image is symmetrically flipped to produce a mirror image of the original detected in the main scanning direction. Noise removal Isolated noise from an image appearing as black spots in white areas and voids in black areas is removed to improve image quality. Operator panel A panel containing the scanner indicators and buttons. The operator panel is used to control scanner operations such as loading document, selecting features, and changing setup options. Outline extraction The boundary between black and white areas is traced and the outline extracted for closed areas. PAPER JAM A warning informing the user that document is jammed in the transport unit, or that transportation is disabled because the transport unit is slippery. This warning also appears when a double feed is detected. Photograph mode (White level follower OFF) Selecting photograph mode makes brightness and contrast settings effective but prevents the threshold from being set. With photograph mode, the darkness of image corresponds to the black-pixel density, making it suitable in scanning images such as photographs having gradations. Photo mode = photograph mode A photograph is read properly in this mode. Pick start time The period from the manual insertion of the document until picking starts after the document passes the hopper empty sensor. GL-5 Portrait orientation A document is transported and read with the long side parallel to the moving direction. Paper counter Indicates the total number of read document from start of reading until the hopper becomes empty. Read operation Refers to the reading operation including Simplex reading and Duplex reading. RS-232C interface A type of serial interface. See Serial interface. SCSI-ID Used to specify a particular SCSI device when the initiator selects a target or the target reconnects to the initiator. Serial interface A standard computer interface. Information is transferred between devices over a single wire (although other wires are used for control). With a serial interface, an interface cable greater than 3 meters (10 feet) can be used. This is often necessary in networking environments, where the scanner may be shared. SETUP mode In this mode, users can view or set a variety of function in off-line. Simplex reading mode Only the front side of the document is read in this mode. Place the documents face up at the center of the hopper table. Smoothing A process that eliminates “jaggies” from slanted lines and curves. Irregular convexities are deleted and irregular concavities filled in. This is useful in OCR applications, for example. GL-6 Temporary Error An error correctable by the operator. Terminator Devices with a SCSI interface can be daisy-chained. A resistor that includes terminal circuits needs to be placed at both ends of a cable when devices are daisy-chained. If a device (such as a scanner) is the last device in a chain, leaving an interface connector unused, a Terminator theerfore must be attached to provide those terminal circits. Third Party Interface Optional board provided by Fujitsu or interface board provided by a third party can be installed and used.
