Weight: 34 lbs
Environment
Operating Temperature: 60° to 85° degrees F
Humidity: 40% to 60% relative; non-condensating
Heat Dissipation: 900 BTUs per hour nominal
Communications
Asynchronous: Protocol is defined to meet user’s requirements; two female RS232 connections.
Communication Speed: From 1,200 to 115,200 baud.
Host Port: Local or remote connection; cable at no charge when specified by the customer at time of scanner order.
Auxiliary Port: Allows connection of a terminal printer or video display in series with the scanner; cable may be purchased from Scantron
Compatibility: Sentry 3000® scanner emulation mode.
RS232 connection or USB 1.1 or 2.0 connection.
Keyspan USB Serial Adapter recommended, if needed.
Power
Standard: 115 VAC +/-10% single phase; 60 Hz +/-5%; US 3-prong plug; 8 ft. cable; requires 15 amp dedicated circuit, single phase
Option A: 50 Hz +/-5%; 100 or 110 VAC +/-10%; US 3-prong plug; 8 ft. cable; requires 15 amp dedicated circuit, single phase
Option B: 50 Hz +/-5%; 220 or 240 VAC +/-10%; US 3-prong plug; 8 ft. cable; requires 7.5 amp dedicated circuit, single phase
Operation
2.5” x 5” to 9” x 14” (60-100 lb. Offset); uses both Mark Reflex and Trans-Optic forms.
Form Input Capacity: Autofeed 300 sheets.
Output Stacker Capacity: 300 sheets main stacker.
Controls: Two push button programmable switches.
Message Display: 40 character, alphanumeric, fluorescent.
Scanning Rate: Model 36—3,600 sheets per hour; Model 50—5,000 sheets per hour (Actual scanning rate depends on quantity of data read from the form and the amount of processing done on that data while scanning).
Options
Dual side read head for two-sided form scanning
Select stacker separates forms that fail edit checks
A programmable interactive printer that prints information on the sheet being scanned - based on the scanned data, such as error codes, alphanumeric messages, serial numbers, validation fl ags, and test scores – with no effect on the throughput rate
Bar code reader delivers application information
SelfScore® module for classroom test scoring and surveys
Components
Read Head: 16 level mark discrimination; self calibrating read head; one or two sided reflective read; Scantron .166” format
Form Transport: Automatic feed; open design
Software Interfaces
The OpScan 6 scanner is compatible with ScanTools® Plus. This software allows you to maintain files and define scannable forms—plus scan, edit, validate and display data. Interfacing with an OpScan scanner into your own custom software solution is done using the ScanTools Plus Link SDK and ScanTools Plus software. These tools are used by software programmers to implement scanning within their own software programs. For added value, the software converts files of scanned data into formats compatible with other commonly used packages, such as Microsoft® Access, Excel, Lotus® and SPSS® software.
