Panasonic KV-S5046H Scanner

Introducing a whole new way to scan. With on-board CPU image processing, the new Panasonic KV-S5046H scanner radically outpaces the competition. Instead of a slowsoftware interface, the scanner’s on-board processor does the heavy lifting.

Hardware image processing on the KV-S5046H allows you to scan a document and sample different scan settings without rescanning the original over and over. Until you output your document as a file, the original document data is temporarily stored in memory. This allows you to manipulate a scan without the time and frustration of rescanning.

The KV-S5046H Series scans up to 11"x17" wide sheets of paper

The scanner has a 25,000 page per day rating for their Daily Duty Cycle
Standard Features
  • High Speed Full Color Scanning
  • Black & White, Grayscale Scanning
  • Duplex and Simplex scanning modes
  • Thin Paper Scanning Mode
  • Long Paper Scanning Mode
  • Mixed Document Mode
  • 300 Page Auto Feeder
  • Ultrasonic Double Feed detection
  • Blank page detect
  • Bar code detection (ISIS Driver)
  • Searchable PDF, PDF & PDF/A
  • JPG,TIFF, & BMP output
Automatic Image Orientation

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.

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.

Image Capture Plus Software

Bundled standard with all Panasonic Scanners, the Panasonic Image Capture Plus Software is your ultimate capture solution. Featuring a wealth of image processing functionality, it ensures that you have the tools necessary to handle virtually any scanning requirement. Features of the Panasonic Image Capture Plus software include: Automatic Brightness Adjustment, Automatic Image Emphasis, Zonal OCR, Automatic Binary/Color Distinction, Double Exposure, Blank Page Removal, Automatic Crop, Automatic Deskew, MultiStream, Dynamic Threshold, Multi-Color Dropout, Hole Removal, Background Smoothing, 2-Page Separation, Multi-Crop, and more.

Kofax® VRS Elite Workgroup Software

For environments where the Kofax® Virtual Rescan Elite Software is required, Panasonic also offers the Panasonic KV-S2087 scanner bundled with the Kofax® VRS software. Panasonic scanners that include the VRS software bundle are designated with a (-V) at the end of the model number. The Kofax® VRS Elite software provides a variety of advanced scanner applications such as: Device Health Monitor, Centralized Licensing, Profiles and Customizable User Interface, and more.

3-Year Advance Exchange Warranty

Panasonic provides a "3-Year Advance Exchange Warranty" standard with the purchase of the Panasonic KV-S2087. This provides, in most cases, next business day scanner replacement for problems that cannot be remedied by our technical support hotline.

Superior Roller Mechanisms

The paper feed rollers separate from the paper each time a sheet is fed, so the tendency to double-feed caused by the paper feed roller pressure is reduced, even when feeding paper of different thicknesses. Any paper sliding is also detected and the double feed prevention roller pressure is adjusted to prevent the paper from slipping and jamming.

Scanning Glass Cleaning Brush

The brush directly cleans the scanning glass to further prevent paper dust. This eliminates the need for maintenance and ensures comfortable scanning operations.

Easy User Maintenance

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 technician

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.

Imprinter Options Available

With the "Imprinter Option", 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.
"CASE#: ABC-1234"
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"

*Post imprinter not available on the KV-S5076H

Other Functions Included

Barcode Detection (ISIS only), Patch Code Detection, Automatic document separation, and Control sheet functions are included with the scanner.
