Loading Documents on ADF
This section explains how to check the document condition and load them on ADF. These operations are very important to avoid paper jam or scanning error.
2.2.1 Checking document condition
Check that the document meets the following condition.
• If the documents do not meet the conditions, scan them on Flatbed
HINT
referring to "Loading Document on Flatbed" on page.17
• If you scan sheets of paper that is not recommended for feeding with
ADF, a paper jam may occur in the scanner or a wrinkle may occur on a
sheet. To prevent this from occurring, use Flatbed when scanning such
paper.
■ Document Size
For ADF:
Minimum 115 (Width) x 140 (Length) mm
(4.53 x 5.51 in.)
Maximum 216 (Width) x 355 (Length) mm
(8.5 x 14 in.)
■ Document Type
The following paper types are recommended for ADF scanning:
• Woodfree paper
• Wood containing paper
When using documents other than above paper types, scan som test sheets of the same type
to see if the documents can be scanned or not, before attempting to scan the documents.
■ Document Thickness
Paper thickness is generally expressed by "paper weight". The following shows the paper
weights that can be used on this scanner:
•
52 g/m2 to 127 g/m2 (14lb to 34lb)
■ Precautions
The following documents may not be scanned successfully:
• Documents of non-uniform thickness (e.g. envelopes and documents with photographs
attached)
• Wrinkled or curled documents (Refer to HINTs on the next page)
• Folded or torn documents
• Tracing paper
• Coated paper
• Carbon paper
• Carbonless paper
• Photosensitive paper
• Perforated or punched documents

• Paper-clipped or stapled documents
• Documents on which the ink is still wet
• Documents other than paper such as fabric, metal foil, or transparencies
HINT
• When scanning semi-transparent documents, slide the [Brightness] bar
to light to avoid bleed through.
containing large areas written or filled in pencil. If scanning of such documents is unavoidable, clean the rollers frequently
• Carbonless paper contains chemical substances that may damage the
Pad ASSY or rollers (e.g. Pick roller) when these types of documents
are fed. Pay attention to the following:
Cleaning:
If pick errors occur frequently, clean the Pad ASSY.
For details on cleaning the Pad ASSY, refer to "3.2.3 Cleaning the
ADF" on page 41.
Replacing parts:
The service lives of the Pad ASSY and Pick roller ASSY are sometimes shortened when scanning medium-grade paper documents.
• If paper containing wood is scanned, the service life of the Pad and
Pick roller may become shorter than that of the Pad and Pick roller
used for scanning only woodfree paper.
• The pad or rollers of the scanner could be damaged if photographs or
sheets of paper attached to the scanned document have contact with
the pad or rollers during scanning.
• Scanning documents of calendered paper such as photographs may
damage the surface of them.

Equipment Error
An error that cannot be fixed by the operator. The operator should call the manufacturer
for service.
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.
FCC
Acronym for "The Federal Communications Commission", an independent United States
government agency which is in charge of regulating interstate and international communications via radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. The Part 15 of the FCC regulations mentioned in this manual is designed to prevent harmful interferences on radio
communication of radio receivers and other devices which radiate radio frequency
energy, and provides for the certification of radio receivers. It also provides the certification of low power transmitters and the operation of certificated transmitters without a
license.
Feeds rollers
Rollers that feed documents through the ADF.
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.
Flat bed An input device of the scanner, where documents are placed and scanned.
Generally used for scanning pages out of a book, or paper that is out of the feeding
specification of the ADF. Also used to scan a small volume of documents by manual
operation.
AP-10
Flatbed
An input device of the scanner, where documents are placed and scanned. Generally
used for scanning pages out of a book, or paper that is out of the feeding specification of
the ADF. Also used to scan a small volume of documents by manual operation.
Gamma
A unit of changes of images' brightness. It is expressed as a function of the electric input
power to devices (scanner, display, etc.) and an image's brightness. If the gamma rate is
larger than 1, the brightness of an image increases and vice versa. In order to adjust the
brithtness of an image close to the orignal, generally the gamma value is set to 1.
Grayscale
A method for realizing the gradation from black to white on the scanned image. For
example, when scanning monochrome documents, the computer recognizes the documents as sets of black and white dots. In the Gray scale method, each dot contains data
regarding density of black. The original gradation of the documents is realized as the
gradation of the density data.
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.
C
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.
Image processing
An image is scanned with specified parameters.
Interface

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.
Multi Feed detection
A scanner function which detects accidental feeding of multiple sheets into the ADF. This
can be set as both enabled/disabled.
AP-12
Mirror image
The read image is symmetrically flipped to produce a mirror image of the original
detected in the main scanning direction.
Moire Patterns
Recurrent patterns on scanned images caused by incorrect settings of angles.
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.
Removes particles from the document image. Common particles include toner and fax
particles. Noise reduction works via an algorithm that removes pixels up to 5 x 5 dots
appart. A dot is 1/400 inch. A particle can be distinguished from a character as it is not
connected to another dot within 5 pixels.

example.
Storage temperature/humidity
The temperature and humidity levels necessary for proper storage of the scanner.
Temporary Error
An error that can be fixed 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 the SCSI chain when devices are daisychained. If a device (such as a scanner) is the last device in a chain, leaving an interface
connector unused, a Terminator therefore must be attached to provide those terminal circits.
Third Party Interface
Used to install optional board provided by Fujitsu or interface board manufactured by a
third party.
