* Scan speed measured at 200 dpi. The scan rate is proportional across the full range of resolutions supported by the scanner. Actual scan times will depend on host system performance. Quoted top speeds may be limited by the effective bandwidth of the USB2 or Ethernet interface and are not guaranteed for all media types.

For more detailed specifications, see the Large Format Scanner Overview.

Compact and lightweight

CIS technology uses compact, lightweight components that have good tolerance to vibration. The Ci 24 weights just 36 lbs (16.3 kg) which makes it easily portable. It is compact and lightweight enough to use on a desk or table top without a floor stand.

The SmartLF Ci 24's front paper exit removes the need that other scanners have for space at the back to accomodate rear-exiting media. As a result, the SmartLF Ci 24 and its bigger brother the Ci 40 are the only scanners that can be placed flush against the wall or on shelves, thereby maximising the use of available office space.

This makes the Ci 24 ideal for smaller workspaces.

Creates sharp, accurate scans


  • The Ci 24 wide format scanner's CIS imaging technology gives extremely sharp, finely resolved and geometrically accurate images that are especially suited to scanning technical documents. Its high 600 dpi optical resolution is more than enough for any technical large format scanning job. (The optimal scanning resolution for most technical documents is 200 to 400 dpi.)
  • A unique Advanced Single Roller Paper Transport (ASRPT) system comprising a single, large diameter precision ground roller with a dynamic spring mounted media guide mechanism maintains accurate document positioning as the document passes through the scanner.

    The single large, slowly revolving roller introduces less error than the multiple smaller rollers found in all other large format scanners that must complete many revolutions per scan. This makes Ci series scanners the most accurate large format scanners in the SmartLF range.

    ASRPT is combined with a bright bi-directional LED illumination system so that even folded documents scan sharply in focus and shadow free.

    Images are scanned using 48-bits (color) or 16-bits (monochrome), with the best 24 and 8-bits selected as image data respectively.

    Saves you time

    Ready for use within seconds of power on

    Because it's a CIS large format scanner with LED illumination, the Ci 24 doesn't require warm-up time and there's no need for calibration before use.

    Fast scanning speed

    Whether you're scanning monochrome or color, the Ci 24 flies. All models scan monochrome at 10 inches per second (200 dpi). If you need high volume color scanning, choose the express color e model which scans color at 3.33 inches per second (200 dpi).

    "Scan-it-once" philosophy
    (Requires ScanWorks software, not included with scanner.)

    With other wide format scanners you have to perform multiple pre-scans of selected image areas to get scan settings right. With the Ci 24 large format scanner and ScanWorks software you scan only once, then perform thresholding and image enhancements on the scan in real time.

    Scan-it-once technology gives you a huge workflow advantage. You can perform quality assurance and adjustments in-line, "right-first-time", instead of needing to re-scan quality control failures off-line after batch scanning is completed.

    An additional advantage of scan-it-once technology is that it minimizes document movement (and possible wear) through the scanner and document skew caused by back and forth "checking".

  • Intelligent Adaptive Thresholding (IAT)

    IAT allows you to create better quality scans of dirty documents more quickly. The free SmartLF All in One software supplied with the Ci 24 has three IAT settings; ScanWorks software (not included with the scanner) has comprehensive IAT that you can set in real time using slider bars.

    Fast Ethernet 1000 connectivity

    The Ci 24 large format scanner is networkable - it has an Ethernet 1000 connection as well as a USB2 connection. Ethernet 1000 transmits data between the scanner and the PC faster than USB2. It also allows you to place the scanner further from the host PC or network socket than USB2, which has a 2m maximum recommended cable length.

    Preserves delicate originals

    The Ci 24's Advanced Single Roller Paper Transport (ASRPT) applies the minimum force necessary for preserving delicate originals, while achieving the required traction and accuracy to ensure images are sharp and shadow free.

    We have even managed to feed newspaper through the Ci 24 wide format scanner without using a document carrier sheet - you can't say that about many large format scanners!

    Easy to use

    Face-up scanning with front exit

    The Ci 24 large format scanner lets you choose between side justified and center justified document loading. The document is scanned face-up so you can see the content as you scan it, reducing the potential for error. Scanned documents are ejected at the front of scanner, making them easier to retrieve.

    Easy, competent included software

    The supplied All in One SmartLF software is designed for operation by non-specialist users and is very simple to use while providing all the basic scan to file and scan to copy functionality you need.

    Simple scanner interface

    You can access all main functions from a simple to use control panel on the scanner, which includes buttons for Scan, Copy, Stop, Rewind and Forward.

    Plug 'n' Play USB2 Interface

    Simply plug the scanner into your PC and use it.

    Environmentally friendly

    The Ci 24 wide format scanner is RoHS compliant; energy efficient (it is designed to comply with internationally recognized energy saving standards); does not use consumable fluorescent lamps which contain mercury; and uses recycle friendly components.

    Saves you money

    Low cost

    The Ci 24 is a CIS technology large format scanner. Quality CIS wide format scanners cost less to manufacture than quality CCD scanners - they use simpler optical pathways with fewer components. This cost saving is passed on to you when you purchase the scanner.

    No need to buy scanning software

    The Ci 24 wide format scanner is supplied with free SmartLF All in One software. SmartLF is easy to use scanning software designed for the non-specialist. It includes all essential functions such as scan to file (PDF, TIFF, JPG) and scan to copy (any Windows printer).

    Economic to run

    As a CIS large format scanner using LED illumination the Ci 24 uses less power than fluorescent tube illuminated scanners. In addition, because LEDs do not require warm-up time the Ci 24 can be used immediately after power on and can be switched off when not in use.

    Low maintenance

    The Ci 24 requires minimal service and calibration. The utility software included with it provides you with all the maintenance applications you need to keep your large format scanner in prime condition and up-to-date with the latest firmware and drivers.

    In addition, the Ci 24's paper feed can be easily accessed for cleaning.
