The KV-S4085CW's extensive hardware elements are further maximized by a range of available software options. With the ability to purchase the unit bundled with either Panasonic's powerful "Image Capture Plus" or Kofax's advanced "VRS Elite Workgroup", the scanner will handle precision document reproduction and versatile image processing with ease.

Featuring a sturdy, dependable construction and a rugged and durable design, the KV-S4085CW fits comfortably into any low-volume scanning environment. Whether it's scanning a single page or a full stack of documents, the KV-S4085CW provides you with an exceptionally powerful and robust scanning solution.

The KV-S4085CW Series scans up to 11"x17" wide sheets

Stapled Document 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 glass.

Corner Staples

Bottom staples

Side Staples

Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection

Ultrasonic sensors detect double feeds. The KV-S4085CW is equipped with THREE ultrasonic sensors to cover a larger area of the document, rather than the center only, for versatile detection of small documents mixed among regular-sized documents. Great for scanning with sticky notes on the corner without double feed error notices

300 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 double-feed.

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 up to 100" can be scanned as a single image.

Background Color Switching

When scanning thin papers that may allow images on the backside of the paper to show through, "Background Color Switching" allows the scanner user to switch the background color to black (standard), or white (optionally) to prevent the backside from being visible. This helps ensure that the image being scanned is scanned as accurately as possible and prevents any errors or discrepancies that could arise if the backside corrupted the image.

Advanced Hybrid Scanning Technlogy

To create the very best possible image, this scanner incorporates "Advanced Hybrid Scanning Technology". This combines a CIS (Contact Image Sensor) along with CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) to create a scanner with high-precision scanning technology. This hybrid system, coupled with a highly-luminous LED lamp, enables higher quality image scanning and provides the best possible image output.

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.

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

Imprinter Option Available

With the "Imprinter Option Available", this separately sold 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"

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

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

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-S4085CW 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.
