Graphtec proprietary color matching technology enables production of images with accurate color reproduction and uniformity.

Overall color is not good in other scanner. It is required the adjustment in an onerous way for matching the color.

In the CSX series, the color can be matched by simple calibration.


Advanced scanning engine - Luxios®

Luxios™ color engine offers an enhanced sensor which is expanded to 48-bits that can produce scans with greater accuracy and speed. It is also compatible with Adobe RGB mode, allowing for a wider gamut of color reproduction.

Luxios® High Speed

The fastest scanning speed in its class

Graphtec America has improved the total throughput time by combining the fastest feed speed with optimized 64 bit technology.


Graphtec scanners have the following two scanning mode:
(1) Scan only    (2) Scan and File


In the image processing, the scanned image is required to be edited before it is saved to the file. Graphtec scanners exhibit a faster throughput when it is used in this image processing way.

In other scanner, the “scan only” mode is not available. The editing of the image will be waiting until the scanned image data is saved.


Enhanced the image quality


Produces high-quality images by using a new digital processing system.

The RGB colorshifts that typically occur between 200 and 300 dip and greatly reduced by Graphtec newly designed digital processing system. This means that high-quality image are available at fast scanning speed.


Reduced the ghost on the image


Produces images of sharp edges by using a new digital processing system.

The blurry image is not appeared around the characters and lines. The characters and lines have always sharp edge.


Supported the Abobe® RGB compatible color space


Support sRGB and Abobe® RGB compatible color space for wider color reproduction. The Abobe® RGB compatible mode supports a wider color space than sRGB. It improves color reproduction of the printed document.

sRGB · · ·it is a standard color space for use on various devices such as monitor, inkjet printer, camera, and others. The hue and saturation are specified to unify the differences in color reproduction between devices.

Adobe RGB · · ·it is an RGB color space developed by Adobe Systems. It was designed to encompass most of the colors achievable on CMYK color printer. It can be represented colors on the printed document that can not be represented in the sRGB.


Enhanced the Gray Scan mode

The brightness of color on the document needs to be detected for scanning the document in the grayscale mode. Triple light source in the CIS is used to create white light for scanning in the grayscale. Cyan, magenta and yellow colors are recognized in the same level as other colors.

When the setting of the Gray balance on the software is set to the OFF, the single light (green) sourse is used for scanning the document. The detection of color brightness for green and magenta color is emphasized.

When the setting of the Gray balance on the software is set to the ON, the triple light (R, G, B) souse is used to create white light for scanning the document. The detection of color brightness for green and magenta color is not emphasized. Cyan, magenta and yellow colors are recognized in the same level as other colors.

*1. Actual scanning length varies depends on the condition of scanned document and the performance of the PC. The scanning of long length documents is not guaranteed, because it can be affected by the accuracy of the document alignment and the condition of the document itself.

*2. The scanning speed varies depending on the performance of the PC. The scanning may be slower when the resources of the PC are shared with other application software. The scanning speeds above were measured using the following PC:- .
 · CPU: Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz
 · Memory: 4.0GB
 · Interface: USB2.0 (High speed)

*3. The scanning accuracy may vary depending on the operating environment and the quality or thickness of the scanned document. The accuracy figures above were measured under the conditions described below.
 · Test chart used: Mylar sheet #300, 841 mm x 1,189 mm
 · Guaranteed accuracy condition: Temperature 20 +/-3deg.C ; Humidity 60+/-10%R.H.
