Image Access WideTEK 12 Spectrum Flatbed Scanner

Fastest UV, VIS, IR, 3D and Backlight Flatbed Scanner in A3+

The WideTEK® 12 SPECTRUM scanner captures images faster and more accurately than most much higher-priced lab instruments. This backlight flatbed scanner captures objects under ultraviolet (UV) at 365nm, visible light (VIS) as well as the infrared (IR) contrast of objects under IR light at 850nm in formats up to DIN A3+ (12 x 18 inch).

Another unique feature is the capability to capture 3D surfaces for industrial quality control and surface inspection applications. From Braille print on medication boxes to SMD parts on electronic boards, the superior image quality of a WideTEK® 12 SPECTRUM captures every detail.

The WideTEK® 12 SPECTRUM was designed for authenticity verification of banknotes, passports, ID cards, certificates, and other special objects containing security features. The built-in backlight in the lid detects watermarks and other semitransparent features of documents.

Multilight Scanning with Razor Sharp Accuracy

Under all lights from UV, visible, to IR; it scans up to 1200dpi (3D mode 600dpi) at astonishing speeds. A full color or IR scan of the whole area at 300dpi only takes 3 seconds, while the highest resolution scan at 1200dpi is ready after 12 seconds.

Docuvan will provide a number of key environmental and IT Setup requirements prior to delivery of your scanner.  This will enable you to place the scanner in a suitable location and connect it to your network once it arrives.
It also means we will be as efficient as possible in getting you up to speed with your new scanner without typical IT delays,
once we come on site or remote connect to it for the setup, configuration and training.

Because the Bookeye has a built-in Linux PC and is managed from a simple interface on a touch screen, it very quick to get up to speed with.

There is also a web interface that can be used for setup and configuration of the scanning profiles from a PC on the same network, if you want to do it that way, using a Poweruser login.
We provide On-Site Training for multiple staff, if required.  This can be broken into Administrator and User Training, if required.

Alternatively, we offer remote training over the internet, using TeamViewer or Microsoft Teams, connected to your scanner, so we can configure the scanner to your needs as part of the training.
This can be more cost effective where travel and accommodation costs are prohibitive.  (Or we are subject to travel restriction such as during covid)

This would require the IT component to be pre-configured so it can be accessed remotely.



We offer a rental service for certain Bookeye Models.
