The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner features Graphtec’s proprietary LUXios engine, delivering high speed, high image quality and excellent colour reproduction. By combining the fastest face-up feed speed with optimised 64-bit technology, total throughput time is improved. The resolution of the sensor output has been expanded to 48-bit and Graphtec proprietary colour matching technology enables production of images with accurate colour and uniformity. The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner supports sRGB and Adobe RGB colour space for wider colour production. Graphtec’s newly designed digital processing system reduces the RGB colour shift that typically occurs between 200 and 300 dpi, which means high-quality images are available at fast scanning speeds.

The Graphtec CSX550-09 features Graphtec proprietary high-precision paper feed technology and a 1200 dpi optical resolution sensor which enables the highest resolution scanning. Scanning speeds for all three models, using an A0 size document at 400 dpi are as follows:

High Speed Normal High quality
CSX510-09 mono/gray 16 sec 30 sec 31 sec
CSX510-09 colour 44 sec 85 sec 86 sec
CSX530-09 mono/gray 7 sec 12 sec 13 sec
CSX530-09 colour 17 sec 31 sec 32 sec
CSX550-09 mono/gray 7 sec 11 sec 12 sec
CSX550-09 colour 15 sec 28 sec 29 sec

The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner includes Scanning Master Pro Color software, which improves productivity when editing and managing files. Scanning Master Pro Color software includes file management and file sharing features such as linking, auto de-skew, auto de-speckle, background colour suppression, re-touching and deleting, together with search function, thumbnail view and display tree of image files. Scanning Master Pro Color software is compatible with GIS and CALS/EC editing applications.

Scanning ART for WIN software is also included with the Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner. Scanning ART for WIN enables scanning, printing, and copying. In the Scan mode, the software features batch scanning, allowing selection of document type, size and shading. In the print mode, files can be selected and freely enlarged or reduced and number of copies can be selected. There are a total of 21 file formats available, including BMP, TIFF, PCX and JPEG. Easily configured for customised settings such as colour or monochrome, document type and size, print size and number of copies, Scanning ART for Win software makes an existing large format printer work like a large size copying system with the Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner.


The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner features three models: the entry level CSX510-09, with 600 dpi optical resolution and 43 seconds/A0 scan time; the standard CSX530-09, with 600 dpi optical resolution and 17 seconds/A0 scan time; and the high quality, high speed CSX550-09 with 1200 dpi optical resolution and 15 seconds/A0 scan time. The CSX530-09 and CSX550-09 support interpolated resolution of up to 9600dpi. The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner creates large-format colour scans of up to 36.7 inches wide from a scanning document width of 10.1 to 38.0 inches (257 to 965 mm). The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner features face-up document feeding and accepts a media thickness of 0.05mm to 1.6mm. Document feed reliability with the CSX500 Series scanner is a given, with Graphtec’s mechanism supporting the underside of the document, allowing the sheet guides and document hold, feed roller and pinch roller to work optimally.

The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner features Graphtec contact image sensor (CIS) technology with and LED (R/G/B) light source. There are five A4 sensors arranged in a staggered pattern, supporting 48-bit/pixel in colour, and 16-bit/pixel in grayscale. The sensors in the CSX510-09 and CSX530-09 feature an optical resolution of 600 dpi and the CSX550-09 features an optical resolution of 1200 dpi. The CSX500 Series Scanner features an enhanced gray scan mode, which optimises the triple sensor light to produce the best light for scanning documents.

The Graphtec CSX500 Series Scanner features two scanning modes, Scan only and Scan and File, and is compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, 7 and Vista. System requirements for the software include a CPU Dual Core or high grade, 3.0 GB memory or more, HDD with enough space for storing scanned image data, and a monitor with 1024 x 768 or more, true colour display.
