Compact Scanner Series 

Developed and equipped on the basis of the Synchron Table, these compact devices also achieve the outstanding image quality known to our customers. 


Scans Up to 600 ppi


Fast Scan Speeds


Capture in 2D & 3D




Light quality that sets new standards!

Thanks to the high power LEDs with optical lenses specially developed for this scanner series, the scanning speed is doubled.

The precise and powerful temperature control of the LED light system ensures perfect uniform illumination over the entire scanning range.

The high CRI value of over 95 guarantees maximum color accuracy like the CRUSE scanners. These scanners achieve a ΔE-value below 1.


Available Standard Sizes for The Compact Scanner


Line Sensor Scan Technology

• Larger formats are possible

• Very homogenous illumination across the whole scan area

• Balanced light distribution even for glossy surfaces


CRUSE Design Studio with the following modules:

• Scan Software

• Template Manager

• Image Stacking

• Factory

• Printer Profiling

Compact Scanner Series Light Settings & Effects

Left + Right

The equal lighting on the left and right sides perfectly illuminates the original. Since textures in the original cast no shadow on the surface, it produces a flat look.

Texture Effect

The one-sided illumination (left or right) creates shadows and shaded effects, which reveals textures. The scan has a three-dimensional look.

Variable Texture Effect

The texture effect can be enhanced or reduced by adjusting the position of the lamps accordingly. This allows the resulting scan of the textures to be changed.

Light Deflector

For light deflector modes, the light is additionally deflected by 35° in one direction. Combined with the vertical and horizontal textures, the diagonal illumination makes the original even more visible.


Compact Scanner Series Color Management


The color management of the CRUSE scanners, which was developed in 2010 and continuously improved since then, consists of two components: the CRUSE Professional Profile software and a specially developed profiling target (CRUSE Professional Target). This target consists of more than 800 color fields of different materials (common targets for scanner calibration usually consist of 96 or fewer color fields).

Based on our highly specialized software, we chose from more than 20,000 spectrally measured color samples collected in a database. The chosen color samples enable the scanner to cover the largest possible color range for any type of material, therefore achieving the highest possible color accuracy.

“Experiments were performed to analyze the color accuracy of five camera systems used for museum image-archiving applications […] Only the [experimental] Sinar and CRUSE systems produced acceptable results, systems optimized for archival imaging […]”

Analysis of Color Management Default Camera Profiles for Museum Imaging Applications

from Roy S. Berns, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Stanley Smith, J. Paul Getty Museum (USA)

Each CRUSE Professional Target is manually produced and spectrally measured for accuracy. This profiling target is not available for purchase, but a one-time calibration of the CRUSE scanner is sufficient to guarantee permanently perfect results.

The CRUSE Professional Target is very demanding compared to other profiling targets, because it has a very high color range and metamerism. With this strict target, CRUSE scanners achieve a color accuracy of ∆E < 1.0. On standard profiling targets, the E value is even significantly lower than 1.0. To compare, the average human eye cannot perceive deviations below 1.
