Fastest Wide Format CIS Scanner on the Market
3 times faster scanning
Image Access raises the bar again. The WideTEK 48C-600 scans at 10"/s (254mm/s) even at 300dpi color which is three times faster than any other CIS scanner. It even outperforms the most expensive CCD scanners by a factor of two.
3 times more processing power
The WideTEK 48C-600 comes with a built-in 64bit Linux PC running on an Intel i3 quad core processor and has more than three times the processing power compared to it's predecessor.
3 times more memory
The internal image memory has been tripled from 2GB to 6GB which boosts the maximum scan length at 300dpi color to 50 feet or 16m. Crop & deskew performed on such a long document still only takes about 45 seconds.
3 times faster to install
Unpack, assemble floorstand, power up, assign an IP address and scan to network resources, wireless to iPADs and Androids or simply to a USB drive – all in less than 1 hour. Compare this to the results from any other scanner vendor.
3 times cheaper to operate
The total cost of ownership is three times less than with most competitors. The Extended Warranty Coverage is the best program in the industry; it even includes glass, transport and pressure drums.
The only thing we did not change is the price.

WideTEK® 48C Compliance
Image Access scanners are environmentally friendly, comply to the highest security standards and do not interfere with other devices. We have also made sure that no harmful radiation in the form of electromagnetic emission and UV or infrared light exists. Because these kinds of scanners are heavy production machines with inherent risks to the operator, no one should operate a scanner from a vendor who cannot provide at least an IEC/UL 60950 safety report.
Image Access scanners conform to the many national and international standards which are listed below. Our scanners have been tested and certified by independent laboratories and we can also provide test reports of each standard on paper upon request.
The WideTEK 48C conforms to the following standards:
The cETLus Listing Mark is used for products going into the Canadian (shown by the "c" in the mark) and US market (shown by the "us" in the mark). Products with the cETLus mark have been examinated and successfully passed tests according the requirements for device safety. The standards for IT-equipment are UL 60950-1 for the US market and CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 60950-1 for the Canadian market.
The ETL-EU Listing Mark is used for products going into the European market (shown by the "EU" in the mark).Products with the ETL-EU mark have been examined and successfully passed tests according the requirements for device safety. The standards for IT equipment are IEC 60950-1 and EN 60950-1, or the new standards (from 2014) IEC 62368-1 and EN 62368.
The China Compulsory Certificate (CCC mark) is a compulsory safety mark for a wide range of products imported and sold in the Chinese market. It became effective on August 1, 2003, when China became a member of the WTO (World Trade Organisation). The CCC mark is required for both Chinese manufactured and foreign imported merchandise. The CCC certificate must be renewed annually as part of a follow-up certification which includes a factory audit.
BIS is the acronym for Bureau of Indian Standards.Relevant safety standards for India are:
