The KV-S5055C's extensive hardware elements are further maximized by a range of available software options. With the ability to purchase the unit bundled with either Panasonic's powerful "Image Capture Plus" or Kofax's advanced "VRS Elite Workgroup", the scanner will handle precision document reproduction and versatile image processing with ease.
Featuring a sturdy, dependable construction, a rugged and durable design, and modern styling, the KV-S5055C fits comfortably into any departmental scanning environment. Whether it's scanning a single page or a full stack of documents, the KV-S5055C provides you with an exceptionally powerful and robust scanning solution.
200 Page ADF
A large capacity ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) is an essential part of any scanning experience. Users simply place up to the allotted document capacity into the ADF in the tray and start the scan job. This allows for an easily managed scan process, and saves users time by eliminating the need to individually feed pages one by one through the scanner.
Double-Feed Skip Key
The Double-Feed Skip Key is a helpful tool which allows you to resume scanning when the device detects a double-fed document. This is especially convenient when scanning documents with sticky notes, taped receipts, envelopes or folders. These items typically trigger the Double-Feed Detection sensor and pause the scanning operation. The Double-Feed Skip Key allows the user to quickly and easily resume the scanning operation by skipping past the double feed detection error with a single touch of a button.
Mixed Size Document Feeding
The ability to handle "Mixed Size Document Feeding" is an essential feature for any situation in which the scanner user may encounter the need to scan a multitude of different sized documents. This helps save time by feeding documents of varied sizes at the same time, from business cards to the maximum document size, without the hassle of having to continuously stop the scanning process to adjust settings or guiderails.
Advanced Image Enhancement
With a mixture of progressive hardware and software features, through Advanced Image Enhancement, Panasonic scanners help to create images of equal or greater quality than the originally scanned documents. This proves not only beneficial for the purpose of precise record archiving, but also allows for extremely accurate OCR (Optical Character Recognition) processing.
The suite of "Self-Cleaning Functions" in scanners is a revolutionary set of functions that help reduce the need for users to conduct scanner maintenance and cleaning, as well as help keep the scanner in the best operating condition and producing the highest quality image reproduction possible. The "Scan Glass Cleaning Brush" and "Paper Dust Ionizer" both contribute to keeping your scanner performing as it did when you first purchased it.
Scan Glass Cleaning Brush
A "Scan Glass Cleaning Brush" is an essential tool for increasing the longevity of your scanner. Over years of use, production-level scanners experience high volumes of paper, leaving a film of paper dust to settle on the scan glass, in turn creating a reduction in image quality. The "Scan Glass Cleaning Brush" directly cleans the scanning glass and prevents the paper dust from settling. This eliminates the need for scan glass maintenance and ensures a comfortable scanning operation.
Paper Dust Ionizer
The "Paper Dust Ionizer" creates an ion-filled breeze which helps reduce the amount of paper dust clinging to the scan glass surface by neutralizing their electric charge. An ion-filled breeze also flows through the paper path and helps remove paper dust from the scanning glass to reduce the need for the user to clean the glass manually.
Stapled Document Detection
To prevent documents with staples from going through the scanner and damaging the scanning glass, "Stapled Document Detection" uses a sensor to detect various types of stapled documents and immediately stops the scanner when they are detected. This minimizes damage to both the document and the scanning glass, and keeps your scanning glass in excellent condition.
Ultrasonic Double-Feed Sensor
For advanced worry-free scanner operation, an Ultrasonic Double-Feed Sensor is equipped within the scanner to detect items such as sticky notes or smaller documents mixed in amongst regular sized documents. These innovative, high-performance sensors can detect even subtle changes, and immediately pause the scanning operation so that the double-feed document can be recovered. Thanks to these double-feed sensors, optimum scanning reliability is assured even when scanning high volumes of documents.
Superior Roller Mechanisms
With the "Superior Roller Mechanism", paper feed rollers separate from the paper each time a document is fed, so the tendency to double-feed caused by the paper feed roller pressure is reduced, even when feeding papers of different thicknesses. Any paper sliding is detected and the double feed prevention roller pressure is adjusted to prevent the paper from slipping and jamming.
Long Paper Mode
Long Paper Mode allows documents of up to 100 inches in length to be scanned in one single scan job. This feature was designed for scanning electrocardiograms (EKG), well logs, exceptionally long receipts or any other special documents. The highly reliable paper feed system ensures that these documents are scanned straight through as a single scan job.
Thin Paper Scanning
Increasing the capabilities of scanners, "Thin Paper Scanning" allows scanner users to continuously scan documents as thin as 0.00157 inches (0.04mm). This makes it easy to scan thin forms, vouchers and carbon paper, while also increasing the number of situations where you can scan without having to worry about whether your documents will properly scan.
Single-Sided Document Alignment
When placing documents of varied sizes in the ADF tray, "Single-Sided Document Alignment" allows scanner users to align the paper guiderails in whichever way is most comfortable for them. By allowing either right, left or center alignment, this option allows for a smooth scanning experience.
Easy User Maintenance
Panasonic scanners are designed with the comfort and ease of use of the scanner user in mind. The clamshell design allows for full, easy access to the main paper path for Easy User Maintenance. This allows scanner users to effortlessly clear the occasional paper jam, clean the unit or replace the rollers without having to call a service technician.
Imprinter Option Available
With the "Imprinter Option Available", this separately sold scanner accessory can be mounted to the scanner and used to print a string of characters on documents. The imprinter is beneficial in helping to raise filing efficiency and reliability, as well as ensuring that documents are processed correctly post scanning.
Auto Erasure Security
Scanning situations requiring the highest levels of security are benefitted by Auto Erasure Security. Scanners featuring this high security technology automatically erase all data from the scanner's built-in memory. This feature helps secure against data leaks and aids in preventing hardware hacking.
Image Capture Plus Software v1.3
Bundled standard with all Panasonic Scanners, the Panasonic Image Capture Plus Software is your ultimate capture solution. Featuring a wealth of image processing functionality, it ensures that you have the tools necessary to handle virtually any scanning requirement. Features of the Panasonic Image Capture Plus software include: Automatic Brightness Adjustment, Automatic Image Emphasis, Zonal OCR, Automatic Binary/Color Distinction, Double Exposure, Blank Page Removal, Automatic Crop, Automatic Deskew, MultiStream, Dynamic Threshold, Multi-Color Dropout, Hole Removal, Background Smoothing, 2-Page Separation, Multi-Crop, and more.
Kofax® VRS Elite Workgroup Software
For environments where the Kofax® Virtual Rescan Elite Software is required, Panasonic also offers the Panasonic KV-S5055C scanner bundled with the Kofax® VRS software. Panasonic scanners that include the VRS software bundle are designated with a (-V) at the end of the model number. The Kofax® VRS Elite software provides a variety of advanced scanner applications such as: Device Health Monitor, Centralized Licensing, Profiles and Customizable User Interface, and more.
3-Year Advance Exchange Warranty
Panasonic provides a "3-Year Advance Exchange Warranty" standard with the purchase of the Panasonic KV-S5055C. This provides, in most cases, next business day scanner replacement for problems that cannot be remedied by our technical support hotline.
