Canon Cheque ( CR ) Scanner | CR180 |

The Canon CR-180 is an compact front-counter cheque-scanning device that captures MICR data with images of the front & back of cheques at speeds of up to 180 cheques per minute. Loaded with advanced back-office functionality, it rapidly delivers Canon’s proven high image quality and superior document handling for faster, more efficient cheque processing and electronic image exchange at the first point of presentation.

High-Speed Check Scanning
Scans check on both sides at up to 180 checks per minute (cpm). It is almost twice as fast as other compact check scanners. You can choose between black & white or grayscale. To value-add, it also comes with an advanced text enhancement and color dropout features. CR-180 allows you to load up to 200 checks on the tray at any one time.

Compact yet Durable
While its compact size is catered perfectly for desktop use, its superb durability is just like any other Canon’s production scanners. CR-180 boosts a shelf life of 24 millions scans*, with an average daily volume of up to 200,000 checks.
Priced very affordably, it is a must-have device for back office use in banks, check-clearing houses, back up machine in process center application or for other mission critical tasks.
*Maintenance and parts replacement are required

Advanced Text Enhancement & Color Dropout
With this value-added feature, letters, signatures or checks printed with illustrated or faint colored backgrounds can be emphasized for higher legibility.Color Dropout is another useful feature to improve OCR and text recognition by removing “unwanted” colors in the electronic images.

Over 99.99% accuracy in MICR Data reading
CR-180 reads the MICR line found at the bottom of each check with a high precision magnetic reader, and can also read this data simultaneously with OCR software.
Canon Scanning Utility software lets you save MICR data in different ways: save as a filename, tag of a tiff file, log file. The log file serves as a detailed and quick reference, containing fields like dates, file names, MICR data.

Double Feed Detection
This function automatically detects when two or more checks have been fed into the scanner at the same time. CR-180 is able to detect double feeds either by the thickness or length of your documents.

Built-in Imprinter
This function allows you to print up to 48 characters on the back of each check as they are scanned through the CR-180. Four different inks’ colors are available: black, red, green and blue.

Built-in Jogger Unit
A stack of checks loaded on the feed tray can be aligned before scanning. This is extremely useful so as to achieve a high MICR reading accuracy. It saves you the time and hassle to physically prepare each stack of checks prior to scanning.

Two Output Pockets
Not just one but two pockets so that you can sort scanned checks into two output pockets based on information printed in the MICR line. For example: Read and Error checks are sorted into Pocket 1 and 2 respectively.

Ease of Maintenance
The CR-180 opens on the side, which makes it easy to change the imprinter’s ink cartridge, clear a paper jam, or perform maintenance tasks such as cleaning the scanning glass and feed rollers.

Wealth of Software Bundling
Canon Scanning Utility is bundled with every CR-180. It is an application that does scanning, file saving, image viewing, printing, etc.

The ISIS/TWAIN driver is also bundled with the device and a Software Development Kit (SDK) is available for customizing scanner operation.

Silver Bullet’s Ranger Transport APIā„¢ Software Tool. As the industry standard, Silver Bullet’s Ranger Software allows customers to use virtually any item processing software with virtually any check scanning hardware. And Canon CR-180 is one of them. The inclusion of Ranger with the CR-180 enables most banks to upgrade to the new Canon Check Scanners without having to replace their current software solution.

With this inclusion, regardless of the software being used by a bank, CR-180 will most likely work in their environment. This is certain delightful news for both application developers and users alike.

“Upgrade” your Pentium PC with the power of Multimedia!!

I found this video series on a old “CD-ROM Today” CD magazine from around 1994. You get to learn how to upgrade a powerhouse Pentium system with a newfangled CD-ROM and sound card! Now you are playing with power, folks, and have a system that meets the horrendously outdated and useless-even-then Multimedia PC (MPC) spec!

Video seems to have been made by Diamond Multimedia. Sorry about the quality; video codecs and the hardware to play videos back really were not all that amazing in 1994.Duration : 0:8:54
