Contex introduces two models to the HD Ultra X scanner series. The series now includes 36- and 42-in. models, completing the range of scanning solutions for Contex’s newest line of premium scanners. The HD Ultra X scanner series, also includes a 60-in. model. All scanners in the HD Ultra X series are immediately available from distributors worldwide.
The HD Ultra X series uses CCD technology for images. Whether scanning 36-, 42-, or 60-in. wide, customers can capture originals at 17.8 ips. The common platform also givesthe same results from each scanner model.
The scanner series includes several features and productivity boosters, including true size detection and instant-ON capabilities. A throttle buffer control also eliminates scanner pauses, allowing operators to continuously feed documents without waiting for scanned data to be processed.
The HD Ultra X series offers fast data transfer, made possible by the GB Ethernet xDTR2.5 and USB 3.0 SuperSpeed xDTR3 data transfer technologies.
The advanced technology in the Contex HD Ultra X scanner series offers imaging features, such as a high color-rendering index (CRI). The scanners are equipped with Contex Perfect Light, which uses tLED technology combined with specially developed diffusion filters.
Sharp scans are achieved by Contex’s exclusive lens spherical correction technology and accuracy lens enhancement (ALE), which minimizes optical distortion. Each scanner model in the the HD Ultra X series is equipped with X-Rite ICC color technology and Fujifilm camera lenses, which deliver depth of focus (0.3 in.) and CCD optics of up to 1,200 dpi. The depth of focus allows users to capture documents of all types, especially thick, delicate, or with irregularities, with ease.
With the press of a lever, Contex’s Optimal Thickness Adjustment Control (OTAC) enables users to quickly adjust the HD Ultra X to the required paper thickness. Feather mode also protects delicate originals and extra-thin documents.
A speed-matched roller system ensures fast and easy document loading and eliminates skewing. Operators can choose between center and side loading, or use the adjustable paper guide for smaller documents.
The scanner’s static-free, touchless glass system and steel anti-static feed table also minimize friction, while reducing maintenance costs over time from worn scanner glass.
Additionally, the LED light source, guaranteed to last the scanner’s lifetime, saves energy by automatically turning off in-between scans. Instant-ON scanning capabilities also allows operators to simply load and scan originals, without requiring the scanner to warm up.
The HD Ultra X scanners are available as stand-alone (Contex AIO optional) or in a ScanStation Pro configuration, which includes a stand, touchscreen monitor and Nextimage REPRO software (Contex AIO optional). The HD Ultra X scanners can be networked to any printer.
