  • Fiche Carrier (fiche, ultra fiche, jackets, aperture cards, micro opaques).
  • UCC150 manual combination carrier for fiche (including flat films listed above) and 35/16mm roll film.
  • UCC300 manual and motorized roll film carrier for: fiche (including flat films listed above) and motorized 16/35mm roll film.
  • UCC400 manual and motorized roll film carrier for: fiche (including flat films listed above) and motorized 16/35mm roll film and motorized cartridge film (M).

The microform carriers supplied with the ScanPro 2000 use heavy gauge steel and steel bearings on all moving parts. These carriers are used in microfilm conversion applications and in public use applications. A customer recently reported 'Our ScanPro's are constantly in use by the public, they just get hammered and they just keep working'.

These motorized combination carriers utilize a digital micro controller to precisely position the microfilm image on the view screen. The state-of-the-art design of these microfilm carriers makes it possible to position the film image without requiring the use of manual knobs found on old style carriers. These precision controllers make look ups and research faster and easier. A researcher using one of the old style carriers recently stated 'having to go back and forth between the screen controls and the manual knobs on the carrier to position the screen image is frustrating and time consuming'.

We have been asked why we have put so much effort into developing a precision carrier. Well, it makes for a better product, it lasts much longer and provides for better location of the microfilm image on the view screen. We developed these precision microform carriers right from the start so that we would have a carrier that could be used as a platform for automatic scanning. We currently scan microfilm with our AUTO-Scan software and plan to add the capability to scan fiche soon.

There are four microform carriers that are available with the ScanPro 2000. There is a flat film carrier and three combination carries to choose from.

All of these carriers use new parts and assemblies that are tested and aligned at the factory for precision performance (no obsolete or used carriers provided with the ScanPro 2000).

You just mount the roll film on your motorized roll film carrier and the remote operator does the rest.

Energy Star Compliant

The ScanPro® 2000 was designed from the bottom up to be energy efficient, engineering that earned it the Energy Star logo for environmentally friendly design.

  • Our "Cool Green" illumination system is hundreds of times more efficient than white lamps used in other equipment and doesn't generate harmful heat that could damage film.
  • The ScanPro's "Cool Green" illumination system doesn't contain materials found in CCFL illumination systems that have been identified by the EPA as a danger to health and harmful to the environment.
  • Its electronic components were selected for low power consumption and a special surface mount design was incorporated to minimize power usage.
  • When components are not required to be operational, they turn off automatically to save even more energy, features not available with any other microfilm equipment.
  • The ScanPro's power management feature lets users select the low-power sleep mode that best meets their application requirements.

Optional software Plug-in: AUTO-Scan is optional software that operates with your ScanPro 2000 and your motorized combination roll film carrier (UCC300 carrier for 35mm and 16mm microfilm or UCC400 carrier for 35mm, 16mm, and cartridge (M) microfilm) to automatically scan your microfilm. When AUTO-Scan is installed on your computer (the full version or the free demo version) an AUTO-Scan button is added to your library of buttons and can at anytime be added to your toolbar for automatic batch scanning . It is that easy.

How does AUTO-Scan work?
: The AUTO-Scan software automatically moves the film image into the viewing area and positions the image on the view screen, stops the film, straightens the image, crops the image and saves the image to the specified folder in the selected file format and then continues to the next image until finished. AUTO-Scan doesn't require your film to have "blips" for scanning.

Demo Version of AUTO-Scan.
We highly recommend that you evaluate AUTO-Scan with your own film using the demo version of AUTO-Scan that is included on every ScanPro 2000 install CD. Some film is difficult to automatically scan and we want to make sure that you know how AUTO-Scan works with your film before committing to a purchase. There is a no refund policy on AUTO-Scan so the evaluation step is very important.
