Introduction
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a Panasonic High Speed Color Scanner.
Feature Highlights
Superior Paper Feeding
• This scanner features an advanced paper-feeding mechanism that adjusts the pressure of the rollers and
the amount of time that the rollers are applied to the document according to the condition of the document.
As a result, this scanner can scan a wide range of paper weights, from very thin 20 g/m² (5 lbs.) paper to
very thick 157 g/m² (42 lbs.) paper.
High-speed Double Sided Scanning
• This scanner can scan documents at high speed, regardless of the image type (monochrome / color).
Single sided: 90 pages/minute, double sided: 180 images/minute (200 dpi)
Single sided: 60 pages/minute, double sided: 120 images/minute (300 dpi)
* Speeds based on scanning A4 size paper in landscape orientation.
Support for High-efficiency Scanning Jobs
• Self-cleaning function
•
•
•
This scanner contains an ionizer that, by emitting ions, reduces the amount of paper dust that accumulates
on the scanning glass. This scanner also has self-cleaning brushes that clean paper dust off of the scanner
glass.
Stapled document detection
This scanner has a stapled document detection function that detects documents that contain staples and
stops scanning before any serious damage occurs.
Double feed detection
This scanner contains ultrasonic sensors that detect double feeding. Double feeding can be detected even
if you scan documents that contain paper of various thicknesses.
Double Feed Skip (DFS) function
If scanning has been stopped because a double feed was detected, you can easily resume scanning by
pressing the Double Feed Skip key (DFS key). When you scan documents that include items that you do
not want to be detected as double feeding (for example, documents that have receipts attached, envelopes,
etc.), the double feed detection function can be enabled and still scan these documents.
Other Features
• You can set the left and right document guides independently. By doing so, you can reliably scan
•
2
documents of differing paper sizes.
The paper feed path can be opened widely to easily removed jammed paper and perform maintenance.

Shading Adjustment
About shading adjustment
The shading adjustment function corrects variations in the lamp intensity and pixel sensor sensitivity, and
reduces unevenness in density in scanned images. It can be carried out by means of the User Utility using the
special shading paper, which is provided with this scanner.
When shading adjustment is required
Perform shading adjustment when the density and brightness of sections of scanned images is considerably
uneven, or when image quality does not improve after cleaning the inside of the scanner.
Before proceeding with the shading adjustment
Before beginning shading adjustment, thoroughly clean the scanning glass (F), scanning glass (B), conveyors
in the scanning area, self-cleaning brushes, ion outlets, and all rollers.
If you perform shading adjustment while these parts are dirty, lines will appear on scanned images.
Shading adjustment procedure
1. Start the User Utility.
2. Click "User Shading" on the main menu, and operate as the image display dictates.
Note
•
For further details, refer to section "[User Shading]" in the help for User Utility.
Notice
•
84
If the shading adjustment has not been performed properly, then lines might appear on scanned images
even after adjusting the shading or lines might not be eliminated even after cleaning the scanning glass.
Clean the parts, and then adjust the shading again.
