Advanced Scanning Engine - LUXios -
It is a coined word that symbolizes the proprietary technology of Graphtec scanners, focusing on the process of the "reading the light" and "creating the image in fast".
"LUX" (light in Latin) "image operation" "system"
Graphtec have developed the high-precision image scanner sticking to the process of the light and image.
- The "s" in the "Luxios" has also the meaning of the "speed".
LUXios High Speed
The fastest scanning speed in its class
Graphtec Corp has improved the total throughput time by combining the fastest feed speed with optimized 64 bit technology.
Graphtec scanners have the following two scanning mode. (1) Scan only (2) Scan and File
In the image processing, the scanned image is required to be edited before it is saved to the file. Graphtec scanners exhibit a faster throughput when it is used in this image processing way.
In other scanner, the “scan only” mode is not available. The editing of the image will be waiting until the scanned image data is saved.

Enhanced the color reproduction
Graphtec proprietary color matching technology enables production of images with accurate color reproduction and uniformity.
- Color difference values are the evaluation of BERTL. It has better color reproduction performance when the value is smaller number.
- Overall color is not good in other scanner. It is required the adjustment in an onerous way for matching the color.
- In the CSX series, the color can be matched by simple calibration.
Enhanced the image quality
Produces high-quality images by using a new digital processing system.
The RGB colorshifts that typically occur between 200 and 300 dip and greatly reduced by Graphtec newly designed digital processing system. This means that high-quality image are available at fast scanning speed.
Reduced the ghost on the image
Produces images of sharp edges by using a new digital processing system.
The blurry image is not appeared around the characters and lines. The characters and lines have always sharp edge.
Supported the Abobe® RGB compatible color space
Color space of Abobe® RGB and sRGB
Support sRGB and Abobe® RGB compatible color space for wider color reproduction. The Abobe® RGB compatible mode supports a wider color space than sRGB. It improves color reproduction of the printed document.
sRGB · · ·it is a standard color space for use on various devices such as monitor, inkjet printer, camera, and others. The hue and saturation are specified to unify the differences in color reproduction between devices.
Adobe RGB · · ·it is an RGB color space developed by Adobe Systems. It was designed to encompass most of the colors achievable on CMYK color printer. It can be represented colors on the printed document that can not be represented in the sRGB.
Enhanced the Gray Scan mode
The brightness of color on the document needs to be detected for scanning the document in the grayscale mode. Triple light source in the CIS is used to create white light for scanning in the grayscale. Cyan, magenta and yellow colors are recognized in the same level as other colors.
When the setting of the Gray balance on the software is set to the OFF, the single light (green) sourse is used for scanning the document. The detection of color brightness for green and magenta color is emphasized.
When the setting of the Gray balance on the software is set to the ON, the triple light (R, G, B) souse is used to create white light for scanning the document. The detection of color brightness for green and magenta color is not emphasized. Cyan, magenta and yellow colors are recognized in the same level as other colors.
Three models to match all requirements
CIS (Contact Image Sensor) method in the scanner
CIS : Contact Image Sensor Method CCD : Magnification Optical Method
Image scanners can use one of two methods to scan documents—CIS or CCD. Graphtec employs the leading-edge CIS method for optical systems in its scanners. Enabling extremely high-resolution and high-accuracy input with large-format scanners, the CIS (Contact Image Sensor) method is a state-of-the-art scanning technology that uses contact image sensors developed solely by Graphtec.
CCD method (optical reduction method)
Light from the light source is reflected by the document’s surface. This reflected light is reflected further by a mirror, directed through a lens, and received by the CCD. Since the CCD reads light reduced by the lens, this method is called the “optical reduction method”.
CIS method (contact image sensor method)
The light from the three RGB color LEDs used as light source are reflected by the document. This reflected light is received in turn by the CIS sensor, which performs the actual scanning. The LEDs, lens, and sensor are integrated into a single module. Since these components are all rods of the same length in close contact, this method is called the “contact image sensor” method. This is the method used by Graphtec.
This method is ideal for markets that require precision for applications such as civil engineering survey drawings, urban planning drawings, and apparel patterns.
Features of CIS method
- No Warm-up time
- The scanner is ready for scanning 10 seconds after power on, thus saving energy.
- Power save
- This feature meets several environmental standards. Power consumption is 3W or less when it is in power save mode.
- Compact Design
- Compact design saves space, operability and resource.
