||Continuous Feeder Ramp for Spectrum XF, 8000C Series, 8000BG Series, 8000 Plus Series
Supported Products: Spectrum XF, 8000C Series, 8000BG Series, 8000 Plus Series
The continuous feeder ramp allows you to scan quantities of 500+ documents without having to stop your Spectrum XF, Copiscan 8000 Spectrum, and 8000 Plus Series scanners. The input tray or "hopper" that ships standard with every unit accommodates up to 500 documents at a time. If you wish to scan more than 500 documents at a time without the continuous feeder ramp, you would need to stop scanning after the first batch of 500, wait for the input tray to descend, re-feed the input tray with another stack of documents, and then start scanning again. This does not take long but a few seconds each time can add up quickly in production scanning environments. Thus, if you find yourself in situations where you need to scan more than 500 documents at one time, the continuous feeder ramp could be perfect for you.
The continuous feeder ramp consists of a base metal tray. Two metal side guides affix magnetically to the tray, which allows for left-center-right justification of documents less than 11" (27.94 cm) wide. During scanning, the tray with attached side guides fits into the scanner's input tray and affixes to the front of the scanner. The angle and height of the input tray is user-selectable by tightening a knob at the desired level - hence the "ramp" portion of the accessory's name. Once the continuous feeder ramp is in place, users can feed new documents under those currently in the feeder, via the continuous feeder ramp, as the scanner is fed from the top of the stack.
