* As stated before in our Scan Station Wizard, we seldom recommend simplex scanners except in unique circumstances, because with a duplex scanner you have more flexibility  in setting up different scanning jobs for different type of documents. Please understand that the very specific applications that may require only a simplex scanner may save you about 10% in equipment, but cannot be covered by the parameters set by our Scan Station Wizard. We recommend that you contact our scanning specialists for further analysis and recommendation if you need a simplex scanner.

** The runtime factor takes performance reduction into account, due to routine scanner cleaning (paper dust), paper jams, double feed clearance, feeding and batch operation processes, as well as hardware and software maintenance.  Highly optimized operation may have a runtime factor of up to 85%.

*** Since the Rated Speed is not a standardized number, every scanner manufacturer showcases its own speed definition to make its scanner appear more competitive.  Therefore, to compare "apples to apples" using the KAB Scan Station Wizard, we have listed scanner recommendations where the Rated Speed is represented using the following parameters:  Letter sized documents, 200 dpi for bitonal and 150 dpi for color, listed in pages per minute (ppm), scanned in landscape format and rotated 90 degrees using DpuScan if possible (based upon the width of the scanner document feeder).  The "Approximate Rated Speed" refers to the approximate minimum rated speed you would need to meet the required performance parameters you had set using the KAB Scan Station Wizard.

DISCLAIMER - The KAB Scan Station Wizard is meant as a courtesy service to our website visitors, and it is possible that these recommendations may not meet your specific situation.  Before making any final decisions on a scan station solution, KAB highly recommends that you consult with one of our imaging professionals for a complete evaluation of your scanning needs.
