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 color.
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
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 the imageFLOW interface resides an advanced RIP engine that supports over 550 printers,
includes over 325 ICC profiles and can print postscript files. The SK200C also includes a TWAIN compatible driver.
