Please note this is a Czur Certified Refurbished scanner. Every Czur Certified Refurbished product completes a rigorous refurbishment process that includes full testing that meets the same functional standards as new Czur products. Your refurbished device is truly “like new”, with full 12 months product warranty.

A Fast Scanner

Czur ET-16 Plus is capable of scanning a single page in less than 1 second. So, theoretically speaking, you can scan 60 pages in 1 minute. In the real world, however, we will say you can scan around 40 pages in 1 minute because the actual scanning speed is still limited by how fast your hands can manipulate a book’s pages before the scanner.

Digital Camera-Based System

We are using a digital camera-based scanning system instead of the traditional linear image sensor based system, that helps to archive a much faster scanning. With the traditional linear image sensor scanners, the sensor array and light source need to move across the pane, reading the entire area, and then go backward before scanning the next page which is a drawn-out process. ET16 works totally differently. It takes a snapshot of the document placed beneath its lens in a split second, much like a camera, so it is amazingly fast.

SONY 16M-Pixel HD CMOS Sensor

ET16 Plus is equipped with 16M-Pixel HD CMOS Sensor, when compared with the CCD sensors commonly used in other overhead scanners, CMOS sensors have no limit to the number of data readout channels, so its data readout is quicker. When it comes to the scanner, that means ultra-high-speed scanning.

CPU and Memory

A scanner is not just about capturing the image, it needs to process the image too. ET16 Plus has a 480MHz 32-bit MIPS CPU on board, working together with the 1GB DDR3 cache memory, 2GB NAND flash storage, ET16 can complete the image processing (flattening the image, removing fingers, auto crop, de-skew etc.) quickly and smoothly.

Innovative side diffuser LED light

ET-16 Plus comes with the additional diffuser LED light which helps to avoid the light reflections when scanning glossy page documents/photos.

A Non-destructive Scanning Solution – Book Scanned Without Damages

ET16 Plus is an overhead scanner which offers a perfect non-destructive scanning solution. With traditional scanners, bound material scanning requires unbinding in advance which is time consuming and destructive. it is very unlikely that your book/bound reports/delicate manuscripts can remain intact at the end of their ”scanning journeys” with traditional scanners. With ET16 Plus, scanning a book is safe and easy. Just placing the book beneath the scanner’s lens and pressing the scan button, your book will remain intact from the beginning to the end.

Easy to use – Designed with the user in mind

With ET16 Plus, scanning was never so easy before, all you need to do is press the button and the scanner will capture the image, flatten it, crop it, de-skew it, purify the background, remove your fingers from the image and send the image to your PC. ET takes care of the all the hassles, that is why we call it SMART.

An all-purpose scanner

ET16 is an all purpose scanner. Objects with a size up to A3 can be scanned by ET including books, magazines, business cards, receipts or even 3D objects.

Proprietary image processing algorithm with first-class OCR Engine from Abbyy

Czur’s proprietary image processing algorithm is what makes ET outstanding. It helps to flatten the image, cut the edge, purify the background and remove fingers from the image automatically and quickly.

When it comes to OCR, Czur has implement the industry leader – Abbyy’s FineReader Engine in Czur Scanner programme (for Windows Only). FineReader Engine can recognise 12 languages (Traditional Chinese, Traditional Chinese, English, French, German, Polish, Greek, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean) with high accuracy and transform the scanned file into searchable and editable PDF files with ease.

Visualizer and Document Camera Function

With the 16M-Pixel camera on board, ET16 can work as a visualizer and document Camera with ease.
