When this checkbox is marked, image portions in a color image are compressed at
a higher rate separately from text. Therefore, when a document containing mostly
text is scanned, the file size can be made smaller without causing text to become
blurred. This setting is not suitable for scanning photographs and figures because
the image quality of highly-compressed photographs and figures is degraded.
Marking this checkbox increases the system load, which may cause the scanner to
take a very long time to scan.

[OCR] Tab
You can configure settings so that PDF files are converted into searchable text when they are
created from scanned document images.
Unless OCR (optical character recognition) is turned on, scanned document images are
saved as PDF files in a format that computers cannot recognize, or in other words they are
not made searchable. Through OCR, text on the image is recognized and text information is
embedded into the image, making the image file searchable.
(Note that, if you turn on OCR, scanning takes time longer than if you do not.)
[Convert into Searchable PDF] Checkbox
The scanned document images are converted into searchable PDF files and saved.

documents is inevitable, clean the rollers more frequently.
124
6.2 Document Quality
ATTENTION
• Carbonless paper contains chemical substances that may harm the Pad
ASSY or rollers (e.g. Pick roller) when documents are fed. Pay attention
to the following:
Cleaning:
• 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.
HINT
When using the ADF, the leading edge of all document sheets must be
evenly aligned. Make sure that curling at the leading edge is within the
following tolerances:

Density
In this manual, refers to a measurement of the depth of the display.
Dither
The process by which a group of dots is arranged to represent a shade of gray. The
predetermined dot pattern simulates shades of gray. This scanning process offers the
advantage of reduce memory requirements compared to multilevel gray.
Document jam
A warning that appears when document is jammed in the transport unit, or transportation
is Interrupted because the paper is slipping.
dpi
Dots per inch. Number of dots lined along one inch A measurement of resolution
normally used for scanners and printers. Higher dpi means better resolution.
Driver software
In this manual, driver software refers to software that allows the scanning application
software to communicate with the scanner.
Dropout color
A color which is used in the document but does not appear in the read image.
Duplex reading mode
A mode for scanning both sides of the document in one pass.
Eject rollers
Rollers that transport documents from the ADF onto the Stacker.
Energy Star
ENERGY STAR is an international standard for energy-efficient electronic equipment. It
was created by the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) in 1992. The standard
program has now been adopted by several countries around the world.
AP-6
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-7
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
brightness of an image close to the original, 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
document 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 document 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.
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
The connection that allows communication from the computer to the scanner.
Inversion (Reverse-image reading)
In reverse-image reading, data is changed from black to white and vice versa.
AP-8
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.
ISIS (Image Scanner Interface Specification)
A standard of API (Application Program Interface) or protocol for imaging devices
(scanners, digital cameras, etc.) developed by Pixel Translations, a division of Captive
Software. In order to use imaging devices designed on the ISIS standard, it is necessary
to install the driver software of the same standard.
Jaggy images
Images that have sharp projections or irregular shape on their edges.
Job separation sheet
A sheet inserted between documents in a batch for separating different jobs.
Landscape
A document is transported and read with the Short side parallel to the moving direction.
Landscape orientation
A document is transported and scanned 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.
Multifeed detection
A scanner function which detects accidental feeding of multiple sheets into the ADF. This
can be set as both enabled/disabled.
fi-5530C2 Image Scanner Operator’s Guide
AP-9
B
Mirror image
The read image is symmetrically flipped to produce a mirror image of the original

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
apart. 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.
OCR (optical character recognition)
Devices or technologies for identifying characters on documents and converting them
into text data that can be manipulated. The documents are checked by light and the
differences of light reflection are recognized as character shapes.

corresponds to the black-pixel density, making it suitable in scanning images such as
photographs having gradations.
Pick roller
Roller(s) that picks the page from the batch of paper in the paper chute and feed it into
the ADF.
Pick start time
The period from the manual insertion of the document until picking starts after the
document passes the hopper empty sensor.
Pixel (Picture Element)
The tiny dots that make up a scanned image.
Portrait
Orientation of documents or images. Documents/images are set or displayed vertically.
Portrait orientation
A document is transported and read with the long side parallel to the moving direction.
Resolution
The measure of the details or grain of images displayed on a computer screen. As a
metric of the resolution, dpi is customarily used.
SCSI (Small Computer System Interface)
An abbreviation for "Small Computer System Interface". SCSI is a standard for
interfaces, used to connect devices such as hard disks, scanners, etc. Up to seven
devices can be connected through this interface (daisy chain). The data transfer rates
are different between "Fast SCSI" (Max. 10MB/sec.) and "Wide SCSI" (Max. 20MB/sec.).
SCSI-ID
Used to specify a particular SCSI device when the initiator selects a target or the target
reconnects to the initiator.

B
Separation roller
A roller that separates the sheets of paper from each other.
Simplex reading mode
A mode for scanning only the front side of the document.
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.
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
circuits.
Third Party Interface
Used to install optional board provided by FUJITSU or interface board manufactured by
a third party.
Threshold
A value used as a metric for judging a color as black or white. For scanning an image
with gray gradation, this value must be defined. The threshold setting determines which
pixels are converted to black and which will become white.
TUV
"An institution that controls products for conformity with various standards of security,
usability and environmental matters. "
AP-12
TWAIN (Technology Without Any Interesting Name)
A standard for API (Application Program Interface) or protocol for imaging devices
(scanners, digital cameras, etc.) developed by TWAIN Working Group. In order to use
devices that comply with this standard, it is necessary to install driver software based on
the same standard.
Ultrasonic sensor
A type of sensor for detecting multifeeding by ultrasonic sound. Scanners detect
multifeeding by recognizing differences in the amount of ultrasonic waves that
penetrates the document.
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
An abbreviation for "Universal Serial Bus". A standard for interfaces used to connect
devices such as key boards, scanners, etc. Up to 127 devices can be connected through
this interface. USB devices can be plugged/unplugged without turning off their power.
Data transfer rates are different between the "Low speed mode" (1.5Mbps) and "High
speed mode" (Max. 12Mbps).
White level follower
A function to correct the difference between white colors in unbleached paper (e.g. wood
containing paper, etc.) and in scanned images.
White Reference Stripe
The white part located in the ADF that defines the lightest area in an image, causing all
other areas to be adjusted accordingly.
