Features
This scanner has the following features:
Duplex reading
Both sides of a document are read at the same time and their data
transferred serially.
Fast reading
This scanner can read documents at high speed: 80 sheets/min (A4,
200dpi) in the simplex reading mode and 60 sheets/min (A4,
200dpi) in the duplex reading mode by M3099EH.
Large-capacity hopper
Up to 1000 sheets (A4, 55 kg) can be loaded on the hopper by the
1000 sheets hopper type.
High-quality image
This scanner uses a compact optical system that provides sharper
focus. Furthermore, the use of new LSI chips produces finer images.
New image processing function
The error diffusion feature is provided as standard. Dithering or
error diffusion can be applied to those areas judged to be
photographs by automatic separation (image processing II option).

Operation
Overview
This section outlines the operations of the mechanism and control
units of the scanner.
OVERVIEW
Operation of the mechanism unit
The mechanism unit consists of two optical units (front and back
sides), a hopper and ADF, upper and lower transport units, a motor
drive system, and a stacker. Each optical unit consists of a CCD
image sensor, a lens, and mirrors. The hopper and ADF feeds
stacked documents and the upper and lower transport units transport
the documents. The motor drive system drives these units. The
stacker stores documents.
When the power is turned on, the lamps are lit and the scanner
waits until the light intensities of the lamps become stable. Once the
light intensities have become stable, the scanner is ready for a
command from the host machine.
A document is picked from the hopper and then ADF feeds a
document one by one. The document width is checked and
document top is detected.
The documents are counted, fed, and stacked on the stacker.
The lamps illuminate the document, and a lens focuses the images
on CCD for photoelectric conversion processing.
M3099EX/EH OEM Manual

Main control unit
OVERVIEW
This scanner is controlled by a 80C186 MPU. This scanner consists
of a ROM as a program area, internal registers, an external RAM as a
work area, gate arrays for the MPU peripheral and video circuits,
dither processing and γ conversion RAMs, and error diffusion.
Interface control
RS-232C and video interface
RS-232C interface
The RS-232C interface consists of an ACIA( 8251) and driver-receiver
ICs (145406).
Video interface
This scanner processes a document by the 256-step gray scale. Images
are processed in a way specified by the interface or the operator panel
and transferred serially in eight-bit units. Eight-bit data has V0 at the
left end and V7 at the right end and strobed by VCL.
HGATE ensures the validity of data in the main scanning and
VGATE for the subscanning.
The scanner status is basically reported by the RS-232C interface. An
equipment error is reported to the host computer by a FAIL signal in
case that RS-232C communication failed. See Chapter 3 for detailed
specifications of the interfaces.
Resolution
The basic resolution of this scanner is 200dpi. The resolution can be
changed to 240, 300, or 400dpi from the host computer or the
operator panel.
The resolution in the subscanning direction is achieved by changing
the document transport speed.
When the image processing circuit II (IPC II) option is installed, the
linear density is changed by setting the parameter to its internal circuit.

Notes:
1. Abnormal reception means that a parity error, framing
error, overrun error, or count error has occurred.
2. Command or response transmission is retried only twice.
3. Upon reception, a command or response is checked for
transmission errors. When the check result has no
problem, ACK is returned immediately to the originating
source. When the check result has problem, data other
than ACK is returned after all data has been received.
Response data
Details
Code (Hex)
ACK
(Acknowledge)
A command or response has been
received without an error.

bytes transferred.
4. The originating source of the command/response
monitors the response from the receiving side. ACK
indicates that command/response transmission is
completed.
Reception error causes the command/response to be
transmitted again. The transmission is returned only
twice. After that, the scanner waits for a new command.
5. Response data such as ACK must be retried to the
originating source within 0.5 second.
6. The interval between words in the data stream must be no
more than 10 ms.

Glossary of Terms
A4 size
A standard paper size used in Japan and other countries. Paper is
210 x 297 mm (8.25 x 11.6 inches).
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
The image processing method to detect the difference between text
and photos and choose the thresholding accordingly. Automatic
separation allows the scanner to switch between line mode and half
tone mode in one pass.
Automatic start mode
A mode that the scanner starts to read by the command from the
host machine.
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.
Dither
Technique for producing halftone images representing the entire
grayscale using two pixel levels black and white.
GLOSSARY OF
TERMS
dpi
Dots per inch.
M3099EX/EH OEM Manual
GL-1
Endorser
The unit for printing characters before or after scanning. These
characters may be used for collation of the documents and the image
data. (See Appendix A)
Equipment error
An error which the operator can not recover, such as optical system
alarm, temperature alarm and so on. It is necessary to make contact
manufacturer's authorized service center for paper repair service.
Error diffusion
High-quality halftone (pseudo-grayscale) image production base 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 readed and printed densities. Density data for adjacent
pixels is modified by diffusing errors on the objective pixel into
several pixels, which are than binarized. This maintains high
grayscale levels and resolution during reading, while suppressing
moire patterns by dotted halftone images such as newspaper photo
graphs.
Filtering
The quality of images written in pencil or ballpoint pen and readed
depends on the reflective light characteristics of the ink or lead.
Dropped pixel's may produce out lines, gaps, or thin, barely
connected lines due to even optical density. Filtering detects areas
lighter than their surroundings and increases their density to improve
image clarity.
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.
GL-2
M3099EX/EH OEM Manual
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.
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 II
Image processing option of this scanner. (See page 2-6)
Letter size
A standard paper size used in the U.S.A. and other countries. Paper
is 8-1/2 x 11 inches (215.9 x 279.4 mm).
Manual mode
A mode that the operator can put the document on the hopper one
by one. A document on the hopper can be read automatically.
Manual start mode
A mode that the scanner starts to read by pressing the “START”
button on the operator panel.
Mirror image
The readed 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.
M3099EX/EH OEM Manual
GL-3
GLOSSARY OF
TERMS
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.
RS-232C interface
A type of serial interface. See Serial interface.
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.
Smoothing
Smoothing eliminates jaggies from slanted lines and curves. Irregular
convexities are deleted and irregular concavities filled in. This is
useful in OCR applications, for example.
Temporary error
A status which the operator can recover, such as paper jam, hopper
empty, cover open, pick miss.
