ElarScan A1

ElarScan A1

ElarScan A1 is a planetary scanner for fast and convenient color, grayscale and black-and-white digitization of books, magazines, catalogs, newspapers, drawings, paintings and other documents up to A1+ format. The contactless method of digitization eliminates the mechanical impact on the originals providing their safety.

The main features of ElarScan A1 are the ability to scan large-format originals up to the A1 format and more, as well as the presence of a 4-segment lighting system that can provide uniform illumination, as well as transmitting the texture and artistic features of the originals.

The scanner is equipped with a professional 50MP CMOS RGB camera, which allows for high-quality digitization with the ability to autofocus and automatically adjust to originals of various thicknesses and textures. It is possible to focus on objects up to A3 format and access to the scan system control functions in the embedded ScanImage software.

ElarScan A1 is equipped with V-shaped book cradle, with individually adjusted angle of inclination of the placeholders and additional recess for the spine. The cradle can open at 90, 120 and 180 degrees and is designed to scan originals up to 24 cm thick and weighing up to 20 kg. Separate lifting of the plates allows scanning the books and bound documents lifting the right and left pages separately. All the main elements of the book cradle design are made of metal and have high resource of work at the maximum load.

For gentle scanning of bound documents with a thick spine, the scanner can be upgraded to the ElarScan A1-600KS version – a floor-mounted version with an automated deep book cradle and a flat hinged glass. Also, optionally the scanner can be equipped with a flat tabletop for scanning originals in A0 format.



The scanner operation is extremely simple, convenient and does not require special skills from the user, allowing fast and efficient scanning, processing and transferring any amount of data. User only needs to place the document on the cradle (face up) and start scanning in any of the convenient ways: using the embedded control software, using scan start buttons on the housing or optional footswitch.

ElarScan A1 is a fully autonomous device with feature-rich embedded software for mass scanning and subsequent processing of electronic images. Electronic images are saved directly to the scanner memory, an external USB drive, or immediately to the network (to an employee’s personal station, server or cloud storage).

One of the most important advantages of ElarScan A1 is its price: the scanner is one of the most inexpensive A1 + planetary scanners on the market with no consumables that should be changed during operation. Therefore, the scanner is extremely cost-effective with high degree of reliability during intensive operation, and a set of functional features, technical and operational characteristics and software capabilities in the basic configuration that put it several levels higher than its closest competitors, making it a truly universal and professional digitization tool with a shooting range from A3 to A0 format.
