The SmartLF I Series - great scanners made even better

The Colortrac SmartLF SCi series scanners are perfect for everyday scanning tasks. An A1 / D size document can be scanned in full color at 12 inches per second, only 1 inch per second slower than its black and white scan speed. Connection to the host computer is straightforward and uses a standard USB 3.0 cable which is supplied with the scanner.

SingleSensor Technology

Colortrac SmartLF SCi series scanners feature one-piece scanning sensors spanning the full scan width of the device. Only from Colortrac, the appropriately named SingleSensor combines sensors and illumination in a single scan line for unbeatable 'all-over' scan accuracy and best-possible document illumination. Simple and reliable, SCi series scanners deliver high-quality scanning at an affordable cost.

NEW SmartWorks Imaging

Optimized all the way through, SmartWorks Imaging is clearer and easier to navigate than SmartWorks Pro. With a faster performance, revised preset control, better printer drivers and a new multi-page thumbnail pop-out feature, SmartWorks Imaging is the perfect productivity partner for SmartLF SCi and SmartLF SGi large format scanners.

LINK Remote Control

Work smarter with LINK. This portable tablet app works with any computer already connected to the scanner and running SmartWorks Imaging to bring effortless control of the scanner to your fingertips. Use LINK to reduce body movement and to improve operator comfort while scanning.

Large Document Staging Area

SmartLF SCi scanners have a large, easy-to use staging platform that accepts documents for scanning face-upwards. Specifically designed to auto-detect the size of documents placed in the center of the scanner, documents can be loaded and prepared for scanning in just a few seconds. Documents conforming to standard drawing sheet sizes (manual mode) can be placed in the center or to the side depending on the choice of software. Magnetic paper guides are also provided ot make positioning easier. SCi 42 scanners have a maximum media width of 44” (1117mm) and are able to scan documents and maps up to a thickness of 0.08″ (2 mm).

Dynamic Document Feed

Unlike scanners using staggered sensors SmartLF SCi benefits from a simplified pressure roller arrangement to ensure that the document always stays in contact with the optics. The rollers either side of the scan line and the active soft pressure roller running the length of the SingleSensor are all motor driven allowing the scanner to dynamically respond and actively work against optical disturbances caused by creases and uneven documents. This unique technology ensures that delicate or fragile media such as newspaper and old blueprints can be safely and accurately scanned without problem.

SuperSpeed PC Interface

SmartLF SCi 42 uses a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 digital interface that allows the scanner to work at full speed on full width documents or to scan smaller documents at higher resolutions more quickly. Improved productivity is easy to achieve with the time-saving innovations built into every Colortrac I series scanner.
