Image Access has created a new family of Scan Line Bars suitable for a wide range of inline inspection and scanning applications. The scan line bars come in three different lengths of 24, 36, and 48 inches. At only 45mm height and 80mm width, they are extremely compact and fit into many applications.

Last year, Image Access began their cooperative effort with Global Graphics Software, developing a solution to enable printer vendors to implement a new family of Image Access scan line bars called WideSCAN into their printers to support the creation of PrintFlat calibrations.

The point of scanning is 17mm above the surface, leaving enough room for transport wheels and other items. This unique design is based on standard CIS (contact image sensor) technology but features a long focal range, moving the point of scanning 17mm above the surface. This allows room for glass flats, transport guides or drums , and other hardware.

Illumination, optics, and controller are integrated into the case. The WideSCAN bars only need 24V and one or two USB 3 connections. An optional rotary encoder input allows for on the fly synchronization with the speed of the objects to be scanned.

Speed ranges from 6 inch per second at 600dpi color to 68 inches per second at 300dpi monochrome independent of the length. It can be integrated into almost all single-pass printers for the purpose of nozzle correction and streak elimination.

The scan bars come at an unbeatable price of only € 100 per inch which translates to € 2.400 for the WideSCAN 24, €3.600 for the WideSCAN 36 and €4.800 for the WideSCAN 48.


  • Three models - 24", 36" and 48"
  • Unbeatable price of only € 100 per inch
  • Illumination, optics, controller included. Needs 24V and one or two USB 3 ports only 
  • Long focal range of 17mm above surface including a 6mm glass plate. Depth of focus is +-1mm
  • Speed ranges from 6 inches per second at 600dpi color to 68 inches per second at 300dpi monochrome
