Question / Problem:

How to enable long scanning when using a BÖWE BELL + HOWELL Spectrum 8000 series or Fujitsu fi-4860c or fi-4990c scanner with VRS 4.x

Answer / Solution:

In previous versions of Hardware VRS, scanning was limited to a maximum length of 17 inches. Starting in VRS 3.0, the maximum length has been increased to capture a document with a length of 36 inches when using the BÖWE BELL + HOWELL Spectrum 8000 series or Fujitsu fi-4860c or fi-4990c scanners.To take advantage of this feature, the Continuous Sheet option needs to be selected in the Scanner Properties.

In order to test this feature:

  1. Launch the demonstration application, VCDem32p.exe.
  2. Select Source ¦ Scanner and choose the appropriate VRS source.
  3. Once the source has loaded, select Source ¦ Properties to view the scanner properties.
  4. In the Other section of the Scanner Properties window, put a check in Continuous Sheet to enable the feature.
    It is also suggested to set the Paper Size to Maximum, to ensure that the entire document is captured.
  5. Once the settings have been modified, click OK to close the Scanner Properties window.
  6. When ready to scan, select Source ¦ Process Image and the entire document up to 36 inches should be captured.
