Stapled Document Detection
Both the KV-S8127 & the KV-S8147 feature Staple Detection
Multiple sensors are used to detect various types of stapled
documents, and to immediately stop the scanner when stapling is
detected. This minimizes damage to both the document and the optical
Even when documents are set in different directions, this function detects the
direction of the scanned text and automatically rotates the document into the correct direction.
This boosts work efficiency by eliminating the need to change the direction of each page in advance
when scanning large quantities of documents with various sizes and directions.
750 Page ADF
A large capacity ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) is an essential
part of any scanning experience. Users simply place up to the
allotted document capacity into the ADF in the tray and start the
scan job. This allows for an easily managed scan process, and saves
users time by eliminating the need to individually feed pages one by
one through the scanner.
Mixed Size Document Feeding
The ability to handle "Mixed Size Document Feeding" is an essential feature for any situation
in which the scanner user may encounter the need to scan a multitude of different sized documents.
This helps save time by feeding documents of varied sizes at the same time, from business cards to the
maximum document size, without the hassle of having to continuously stop the scanning process to adjust settings or guiderails.
Double-Feed Prevention Roller
Ensuring reliable scanning of large amounts of
documents, the "Double-Feed Prevention Roller" helps prevent
scanning mis-feeds. Assisting the document feeding process, the
double-feed prevention roller separates the feeding documents from
the second sheet onward. This reduces, and ultimately helps to
prevent the number of occurrences of sheets coming through as a
Long Paper Mode
The highly reliable paper feed mechanism quickly and accurately scans long documents.
This function boosts work efficiency by smoothly scanning long monitoring sheets, like those used for EKG documents.
Documents of unlimited length can be scanned as a single image.
Curved or Straight Paper Path
To provide scanner users with the most versatile scanning
environments, the user has the choice to utilize a "Curved or
Straight Paper Path". While the typical output via the curved path
outputs to an output tray at the front of the unit, the user can
choose to utilize a straight path which outputs straight through to
the rear of the unit. The choice to utilize the straight paper path
ensures high reliability with thick or long paper. The possibilities
for both usage and installation location are almost unlimited as a
result of this feature.
Panasonic scanners are designed with the comfort and ease of use of
the scanner user in mind. The clamshell design allows for full, easy
access to the main paper path for Easy User Maintenance. This allows
scanner users to effortlessly clear the occasional paper jam, clean
the unit or replace the rollers without having to call a service
Imprinter Option Available
With the "Imprinter Option Available", this scanner accessory can be mounted to the scanner and used to print a
string of characters on documents. The imprinter is beneficial in
helping to raise filing efficiency and reliability, as well as
ensuring that documents are processed correctly post scanning.
What's a Pre-imprinter ? The pre-imprinter prints text on the surface of a
document before its image is scanned so the text data is
included in the scanned image data.
What's a post-imprinter ? The post-imprinter prints text on the back side of a
document after its image is scanned so the text data is NOT included
in the scanned image data "scanned 1-1-2013"
Auto Erasure Security
Scanning situations requiring the highest levels of security are
benefitted by Auto Erasure Security. Scanners featuring this high
security technology automatically erase all data from the scanner's
built-in memory. This feature helps secure against data leaks and
aids in preventing hardware hacking.
Other Functions INCLUDED

document separation, and Control sheet functions are included with
Patch code sheets are entered amongst a stack of documents.
For example, you can use the patch code sheet to change the
scanner "mode" settings from Black & White to Color mode & then
back again. Great when you have photos at the end of each file
folder to scan in color. No separate batches needed !
