The Sidekick 1400u – is a new model, maintaining
the same best-in-class features as its predecessor, the 1400, and is now
available with Ultrasonic Multifeed Detection and has been manufactured to meet
the Energy Star requirements that will take effect in April 2007.
New MultiFeed Detection: Ultrasonic
multifeed detects multiple documents from going through the scanner at the same
time. This technology, originally designed by BÖWE BELL + HOWELL, sets the
standard for multifeed detection. Ultrasonic multifeed uses sound waves to
detect multiple documents going through the scanner at the same time. This
technology assures you that all of your documents get scanned. The ultrasonic
multifeed detection incorporates two unique features specific to the BBH line of
scanners to further increase scanning efficiency: Auto Resolve and Multifeed
Ignore. These are two differentiating features for the Sidekick 1400u.
Auto Resolve: With Auto Resolve, if a
multifeed is detected, Sidekick prevents the image from being sent to the
scanning application. The multifed document is immediately re-scanned without
losing its place in the image batch. This significantly increases scanning
efficiency. By eliminating the need to re-scan the document and then insert it
into the correct batch after the batch is complete, the operator spends more
time scanning and less time rescanning multifed documents.
MultiFeed Ignore: With Multifeed Ignore,
the scanner can be quickly and easily set up to allow an intended multifeed
document to be successfully scanned. This includes documents with attached
sticky notes, photographs or envelopes. The Multifeed Ignore feature allows you
to capture all of the document’s information without extra document preparation.
Ultrasonic multifeed was first introduced with
BBH’s flagship high-speed production Spectrum Series. The low-volume production
Trūper Series also incorporates this feature in addition to the Multifeed Ignore
function. Now, BBH’s departmental scanner, Sidekick 1400u, is also proud to
include the advanced feature.
The Sidekick 1400u has been designed and
manufactured to meet the new energy efficiency criteria set by the US
Environmental Protection Agency or the US Department of Energy that will become
effective in April 2007. This means that the 1400u reduces the cost of
electricity and helps protect the environment by causing fewer harmful emissions
from power plants.
The Sidekick 1400u continues to offer USB 2.0
connectivity. This connection fully supports the scanner and all of its
functionality. The SCSI III connection will not be available with the 1400u
model. The Sidekick 1400 will be available for a limited time, which includes
the SCSI III connection.
