Unlike more traditional CCD
(charge-coupled device) scanners, The Graphtec 36” SK200 scanner
incorporates CIS (Contact Image Sensor) technology that has no lenses,
lights or mirrors. It also allows the scanner to be used within a few
seconds of power-on (some CCD scanners have a warm up time of several
minutes). The SK200 uses the same CIS technology that has made
Graphtec IS and CS scanners the most popular CIS devices in the USA.
Scan resolution can be set from 100 to 600 dpi true optical resolution
and up to 1200 dpi interpolated. The SK200 scanning speeds are up to
5-inches per second in black and white and 1.5 inches per second in
MasterJet JW220 Printer
The MasterJet JW220 printer is a 24”
wide, four-color thermal inkjet printer. It contains two print heads,
a dedicated black, with a nozzle configuration of 320x2 lines and a
CMY print head with a nozzle configuration of 160x3. The JW220 prints
a D-size black and white copy in approximately 60 seconds and a D-size
color copy in 270 seconds.
Scanning Arts Software
The Scanning Arts software for the
SP200W provides an easy-to-use full-featured interface required for a
broad range of projects. The large control buttons on its main control
screen are designed to provide a feel and functionality similar to
that of an office copier and is fully compatible with touch-panel
monitors. This system software performs a variety of functions
including scanning, printing and copying. Scanning Arts™ provides
optimized default settings for a variety of original document types
including maps, drawings, blueprints, photos and posters, thereby
providing touch-of-a-button operation for many projects.
SK200C 36” Scanner
The SK200C scanner offers 600 dpi
optical resolution with black and white / grayscale / full-color
capability. It scans technical drawings, blueprints, maps to a high
standard and offers superior image accuracy, stitching quality and
needs little or no calibration. Scan speeds of the SK200C are 3-inches
per second in black and white and 0.75 inches per second in color.
Graphtec scanners utilize state-of-the-art CIS technology for higher
reliability, faster capture speeds and lower technology costs.
At 54 pounds the SK200 is the
lightest, smallest and most transportable large format scanner and
sits snugly within one compact, space-saving desktop footprint. Its
small size makes it the most suitable large format scanner for use in
small office environments.
The SK200C scanner is supplied with
Paradigm Imaging’s imageFLOW software for quick and easy scanning,
copying and printing. The imageFLOW interface has a “copier like”
control interface and is compatible with touch screen monitors. Under

over 550 printers, includes over 325 ICC profiles and can print
postscript files. The SK200C also includes a TWAIN compatible driver.
