Contex WIDEsystem KIT

The WIDEsystem KIT is supplied free with every Contex scanner.

The WIDEsystem KIT contains...

  • WIDEsystem Tools CD-ROM with WIDEsystem drivers, maintenance software and manuals.
  • JETimage PRO+ Copy Software trial version.
  • WIDEmail scan-to-email utility software - fully functional.
  • Easy Maintenance - Maintenace instruction video on CD-ROM.
  • Special lint-free cleaning cloth for cleaning the scan area.

When looking at pixels across the range of a camera, the pixels tend to be more elliptical at the outside edges of the lens and more round in the middle of the lens. This anomaly is known as a spherical lens error and can introduce inaccuracies in the scanning system that can vary quite substantially between different points along the scan line.

GIS professionals and other specialized vertical markets involved in Quality Assurance and Verification require a very high grade of precision stability in the scanned image with a well-defined maximum deviation of 0.1% or less. Most scanner manufactures typically state a +-0.1% accuracy between the two end-points of the scan line.

Contex however, has taken scanning precision to new levels by developing patented technology.

Accuracy Lens Enhancement (ALE)
Accuracy Lens Enhancement (ALE) is an electronic correction of spherical errors in CCD based camera- scanning systems.
Accuracy Lens Enhancement Technology (ALE) electronically maintains precision across any two points of the scan line thus exceeding even the most rigid requirements in the industry today.
Contex is the only scanner manufacturer to offer Accuracy Lens Enhancement (ALE) technology for their entire range of scanners. Contex is committed to developing only the highest levels of quality, accuracy and reliability.

How can I get it?
New customers will automatically get the enhanced version when buying a new Contex scanner and existing customers owning a Chameleon, Cougar, Chroma Tx, or Crystal Tx can install the enhancement feature by simply downloading firmware version 28, higher into their scanner and using Scanner Maintenance version 1.6.1, or higher.


ATAC Technology

ATAC (Automatic Thickness Adjustment Control)

Contex scanners can scan up to 0.6" (15 mm) thick originals such as posters mounted on foam boards, gator boards, and much more. Most Contex scanner models support ATAC, a technology developed to make large and bulky documents easier to handle .

Inserting and scanning thick originals requires adjustment of the guide plate’s height so it accommodates the thick original with the correct pressure and grip for a straight scan path. With most scanners, this means measuring the thickness of the original and then setting the guide plate height on each side of the scanner.

With ATAC technology, adjusting the height of the guide plate is easy and precise. Using the scanner panel, you first raise the guide plate until the original can be inserted without friction - and then lower the guide plate until it stops on its own. Sensors in the scanner monitor the pressure on the original’s surface and position the guide plate at the optimal level.

With ATAC technology, you always get a perfect, even grip on all originals. ATAC technology is also a time saver for scanning jobs that involve many originals of variable thickness.


Thick Media Support Table
The optional Support Table helps protect your original when scanning stiff media. The table stands at the exact level of your scanner's exit slot and is constructed to let the original glide easily during scanning. The support table legs can be folded inwards making it easy to store when not in use. See the specific scanner model specifications for compatibility.


Contex Scanner Maintenance System
The Contex 3C Maintenance kit is designed to
help you keep your cameras perfectly aligned,
adjusted and calibrated for optimal image quality.
Regular scanner maintenance is a sure way to
minimize costly downtime.

The Scanner Maintenance tools consists of..

  • Scanner Maintenance Software (wizard) on WIDEsystem Tools CD-ROM.
  • Single all-in-one maintenace sheet with Alignment chart, B/W Calibration and Color Calibration.
  • Protective cover for storing the maintenace sheet.
  • Scanner Maintenance step-by-step instruction poster.
  • Special lint-free cleaning cloth for cleaning the scan area.
  • Easy Maintenance Instruction Video on CD-ROM (WIDEsystem Kit).

Contex All-Wheel-Drive Guide Plate

Care for your original - The Contex All-Wheel-Drive with contour adjustment and precision rollers ensures a perfectly straight scanning path without using unnecessary force so you avoid both image distortion and damage to your customer's fragile originals.

Dual shared axles synchronize roller movement to ensure a straight and stable scan path. Suspension components apply pressure evenly across the whole width of the document for an optimal yet delicate hold. The roller's soft-friction contact surface adds the final touch to a system that cares for your original and for your scan results.

Can be fitted on most Contex scanner models.
