    Panasonic KV-S1046C Duplex Colour Document Scanner Product Description

    High-Speed Full-Color Scanning
    Excellent performance keeps office productivity high.
    This scanner can quickly convert a large number of documents into electronic data, so it provides smooth usage even in offices with many users. Scanning documents into data makes it possible to consolidate information, which improves work efficiency. And it lowers the cost of handling documents and reduces the space needed to store them.

    Duplex Scanning

    Prevents pages from being missed when scanning.
    Double-sided scanning of documents from business-card size all the way to A4 can be done with a single scan. Plus, double-sided scanning is done at the same speed as single-sided scanning. This eliminates the need to repeatedly turn the document over to the front and back to rescan, and prevents pages from being missed when scanning

    Double-Feed Prevention Roller System

    Prevents scanning mis-feeds.  
    The active double-feed prevention roller reverses rotation the instant that the leading document leaves the paper feed section to prevent the double-feeding of documents that are stuck together.

    Compound Paper Scanning
    Compound paper such as carbonless copy paper can be fed.  
    A double-feed prevention roller release mechanism is provided. By lifting the manual feed selector, compound paper such as carbonless copy paper can also be fed.

    Ultrasonic Double-Feed Detection

    Prevent scanning errors.
    In addition to its double-feed prevention roller, the double-feed prevention system is enhanced by an ultrasonic sensor that detects the double feeding of originals during scanning. This innovative design prevents double feeding, and has been proven effective even when the documents being scanned contain a mix of paper of different weights or thickness. Thanks to double-feed prevention, optimum reliability is assured even when scanning high volumes of documents.

    Double-Feed Skip Function

    Cancels double-feed errors to simplify rescanning.
    When scanning stops due to documents that include things like envelopes or that have sticky notes attached, simply press the Skip key to cancel the error and resume scanning.

    Dog-Ear Detection

    Detects and prevents missing images.
    When a scanned image is missing due to an inadvertently folded corner (dog-ear) or a document that is extremely skewed, the Dog-Ear Detection function automatically and temporarily stops the scanning. The user can then decide to rescan, or to continue scanning as is.

    Document Output Control

    Prevents the output order from changing.
    The output speed is automatically lowered for documents that are 148 mm (5.82 inches) or shorter, and the exit guides keep the document from slipping. This stops longer documents from sliding under shorter ones to prevent the output order from changing.

    Thin Paper Scanning

    No more worries about scanning thin paper.
    Now you can continuously scan documents that are as thin as 0.04 mm. That makes it easy to scan thin forms or vouchers. And it increases the number of situations where you can use scanning - without worrying about thin paper.

    Embossed Card Scanning

    Enables smooth embossed card scanning.
    This model can scan up to three embossed cards, such as driver's licenses, consecutively.

    Mixed Paper and Hard Card Batch
    Enables hard card scanning with paper documents in a single batch.  
    This scanner was designed to be able to combine paper documents along with a hard ID card, such as a driver's license, in a single batch by using the mixed card batch guide.

    Long Paper Mode

    Even documents of unusually long sizes can be scanned.
    The highly reliable paper feed system lets you scan documents up to 2540 mm (100 inches) in length. This is ideal for scanning electrocardiograms (EKG) or other special documents. This single scanner handles a wide variety of applications.

    Automatic Image Orientation
    No more worries about the document's direction.  
    Even when documents are set in different directions, this function detects the direction of the scanned text in documents and automatically rotates it into the correct direction. This boosts work efficiency by eliminating the need to change the direction of each page in advance when scanning large quantities of documents with various sizes and directions.

    Advanced Image Processing
    Makes complicated settings automatically to improve scanning quality.  
    The Automatic Brightness Adjustment function automatically adjusts the brightness and contrast of scanned images, even on documents with varying paper colors and text hues, to produce scanned images with suitable brightness.
    The Automatic Image Emphasis function emphasizes the edges of characters and lines to sharpen them and softens the appearance of other parts of the image. Noise (black spots) is also reduced.  

    2-Page Separation

    Easily get the data you need from each page
    This function automatically divides the single image into two single sheets. Dividing scanned documents saves time and trouble because it makes complex editing operations unnecessary.

    Power Saving

    Reduces power consumption.
    LED lighting The scanning section uses LEDs for its light source to lower power consumption while scanning.  

    Sleep mode

    Power consumption is suppressed to 1 watt maximum during sleep mode to save energy while the scanner is not being used.

    Power Auto Off function

    The power automatically turns off at a preset time to cut down on wasted electricity.

    Easy Maintenance

    Reduces maintenance costs and downtime.

    The clamshell design allows full, easy access to the entire paper path, so you can clear paper jams or clean the unit without calling a service center. The rollers last a long time and are easy to replace when worn, also improving the unit's cost-effectiveness.

    Auto Erasure Security
    A high degree of safety.
    Scanned data is automatically erased from the scanner memory as soon as scanning is completed. This basically eliminates the danger of information leaks, and ensures the user of safe, secure scanning  

    Space-Saving Installation

    The scanner can be installed just about anywhere.
    Its small footprint allows it to conveniently fit into small spaces, such as reception counters or desk sides. For example, placing it at the reception area of a bank or hospital allows customer or patient ID cards and other documents to be quickly scanned. This enables real-time information sharing to help provide fast, accurate service.
