Contex has launched the IQ FLEX flatbed scanner. As the newest addition to the IQ wide format scanner series, it incorporates the power of this technology into a flatbed, the company reports. Customers can scan A2 / C-size originals of any size or shape, or documents up to A1 / D-size, and unlimited thickness. It has an accuracy of 0.1% +/- 1 pixel and six-second scanning speeds.
The scanner makes it easy to digitally capture books, fragile documents, textiles, artwork and more, and saves them in standard file formats, according to the company. The IQ FLEX can also save files in raster format for use in any CAD or GIS application such as AutoCAD, Microstation and ArcGIS. It also includes a 64-bit TWAIN application driver for use with EDM and other imaging software.
Scanned images can be archived or shared via network PCs, email, cloud or USB. Customers can also send files to print using the preinstalled HP, Canon, EPSON print drivers.
The IQ FLEX is the only WiFi-enabled large format flatbed scanner with speeds up to 150 Mb / sec. Customers have three options for operating the IQ FLEX flatbed. The scanner includes a built-in controller with a 7-inch touch screen to operate, edit, annotate and markup scans, without the need for a CPU. For more advanced scanning and editing options, customers can add a CPU with Contex’s NextImage scanning software. Customers can also operate the scanner using their smart device with Contex’s rainforest365 app.
