Canon Cheque ( CR ) Scanner | CR180 | www.somnet.co.in

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 API™ 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.

MS-DOS and Windows 3.11 on Zip250 Disk aka Portable OS

DIRECTIONS BELOW TO INSTALL WINDOWS 95 OR DOS AND WINDOWS 3.1/WINDOWS FOR WORKGROUPS.

Imagine, taking your OS with you without getting the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). Just plug it in the USB port of the computer and start working or having fun. This can be done with windows 95 also, but it’ll be like running it off a Tandy or old IBM!!

All you need is an IDE or USB Zip100, 250 or 750 drive and the disk. Don’t mis-match the disk or drive cause it won’t work.

If your computer can boot off the USB ports on board, then plug the drive in, insert the disk and restart your computer. Make sure you got an old Windows 95 CD + boot disk (with CD-ROM drivers), DOS 5.0, 6.0 or 6.22 disks and Windows 3.11 or Windows for Workgroups 3.11 disks.

1. Insert the boot disk (windows 95) or first DOS disk in DRIVE A: (primary floppy drive).

2. Wait till you get the prompt (DOS setup screen for DOS disk. If you don’t wanna create the undo/backup disk, exit setup and type SETUP /? and look for the option to bypass it. Run the setup program with that command. Example: SETUP /G)

3. Proceed with setup of windows 95 (you’ll know how cause I don’t have to).

4. DOS users, make sure the zip disk is detected as drive C: or you might wreck your windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP or Vista installations.

5. Ensure DOS or Windows is installed to drive C: (the zip disk).

6. Proceed with the instructions provided with setup in windows 95, DOS users will have to insert all 3 disks to complete setup and reboot their PC WITH THE ZIP DRIVE AND DISK still plugged in.

7. DOS users have to setup Windows for Workgroups/Windows 3.11 by inserting the disk in the A: (primary floppy drive) and type: A:\SETUP

8. Go through the setup with defaults, accepting the current configuration. MAKE SURE ZIP DISK IS DRIVE C:!!

9. Windows for workgroups/windows 3.11 will prompt for each disk to get to the GUI part of setup, which will allow you ease of use for the rest of setup.

10. Once you get to the GUI part of windows setup, windows for workgroups will attempt to find your network card, then show you “Select components” screen, same with Windows for Workgroups. Click OK, proced with all defaults. Once you get to the Virtual Memory screen, click CONTINUE or OK. You don’t have to install a printer, just click OK or continue if your prompted.

Once setup stops prompting you to insert disks, restart the computer and THERE YOU GO, you’ve got a portable, take anywhere Operating System.Duration : 0:3:58
