The VersaIMAGE interface for the RFS-1000 is an ISIS interface
which monitors the microfilm blip and TIFF image address together.
The RFS-1000 can be used with or without an SQ Feeder.
The reasons for having an SQ Feeder may be as follows:
The customer wants it because Kodak told him he needs it.
This is an important point because many systems have been
set up by Kodak to require sequential imprinting.
Documents are grouped into batches. Usually this happens in
batches which contain 100 Files, numbered from 00 to 99) and
scanned/filmed before they are moved to data entry for manual
keying of data fields. The imprinted number will be keyed along
with the other data and it becomes the CAR retrieval number.
With the advent of new forms design and ICR/OCR technology
applied, the need for sequential imprinters is not as great as it
used to be. However ...
The imprinted number provides easy access to documents
which must be retaken for any reason. (Overlaps, upside down,
folded corners, bad exposure caused by dark document color
or light writing on documents, etc., bleed through, and others).
Some users may feel that the reasons for attaching an SQ
Feeder become somewhat less important for hybrid filmer
scanners because images can be monitored on the computer
screen as they are created, allowing “retakes” to be fixed during
the scanning operation. However in the real world operators
will not watch images carefully as they are scanned on a high
speed scanner, stop the feeder and retake images on the spot.
Images will be inspected on different workstations and
documents will have to be pulled later. The sequence number
aids greatly in this process.
The imprint verifies that the document has been
scanned/filmed, however it does not attest to the image quality.
The VersaIMAGE software may be used with or without the SQ
To Scan documents with VersaImage Select Scan Batch from the
Scan Menu.
The First window that appears is the Setup RFS 1000 window.
This window is used to

1. Select the Mode by
selecting the mode
you wish to use in
the first list box.
2. Select Simplex or
Duplex (Simplex is
the default).
3. If there is a SQ

string will be displayed in the center of the window. To Change the
SQ string select Change String... the SQ Feeder String Setup
Window will appear.
5. Select the Offset from the leading edge for the printing to start (2

6. Select the database field to place the string that the SQ imprinter
actually printed onto the document.
7. Select the orientation of the printing.
8. When Complete press OK.
Setting the SQ feeder String
The SQ Feeder string appears
at the top of this window. This
will change as you change the
SQ feeder string.
1. To change the SQ feeder
string place the blue highlight
on the field (1 thru 4) that
you wish to change.
2. Press either
• Fixed String to place a
fixed string of characters
into the SQ String
• Today’s Date to place
today’s date into the SQ
String. Note that various
date formats can be selected
including Julian date (yyddd).

• Roll Number to place the Roll
number into the SQ String.
3. To place the Batch/File/Page into the
SQ string place the highlight on the
field you wish, then click on the
Length box. VersaImage will ask you
for the number of characters to be
placed into the SQ String.

4. When you are finished the SQ feeder
string will appear in the top box.
5. Press OK to return to the Setup RFS
1000 Window.

When you are finished with the Setup RFS 1000 window VersaImage
will ask for the roll number unless Scan only was selected.
The VersaImage Batch Scan Window will appear.

The Setup scanner displays the ISIS setup window. This is important
to do for the following functions:
1. Patch code detection.
2. SQ Feeder enabling

3. 200 x 100 fast scan mode selection.
4. Paper size detection which adjusts the image “pulldown”.
5. Auto Stop feature,
allowing to set the
feeder for auto stop
after a certain time
These options can
ONLY be enabled by
using the Scanner setup
