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 slow
software 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

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.

Paper Ejection Control

The paper exit roller reduces the speed of the paper being ejected and aligns the paper to prevent paper jams or the loss of originals. Different length documents no longer come flying out of control into the exit tray. Each document exits at the same speed. In addition, the scanner exit tray has adjustable "slide panels" to align the exit documents together after they are scanned.

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.

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.


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.

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 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"

*Post imprinter not available on the KV-S5046H

Other Functions INCLUDED

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

PC Magazine KV-S5046H Scanner Review

Although the Panasonic KV-S5046H is the lower-end model of two departmental document scanners that the company recently introduced (the other being the Editors' Choice Panasonic KV-S5076H), it's still a formidable scanner, and offers most of the latter's speed and copious features at a somewhat lower price. It's easy to recommend for companies looking for a heavy-duty scanner that can quickly scan multiple pages
at up to tabloid size.
