C-Car update, sorting and scanners

So, back in June we were told to sort items. It seems that depending on which route we are on, depends on the answer. Since we are on Route A, Avant Services prefers that we DO NOT sort the books.

Also, back during the summer, they installed at barcode by the gray bin. I was told at Tuesday’s meeting that as of this week, September 23rd, all A Route drivers have the scanners to use with it. So, to allow for training, we should begin to see our guy using the scanner in the next few weeks. Let’s all keep watch.

BScan ILL Upgrade

On Monday, we had a second upgrade of the BScan ILL Software. This caused a few minor changes.

The first thing you will notice is that the resolution of the computer is different. The text is smaller to allow you to see the complete BScan ILL screen.

When scanning, when you “Scan on Button/Pedal”, instead of waiting for the button to timeout to do the Image Treatment, you can lightly hit the “STOP” button on the front of the scanner. This will exit the scanning mode and allow you to do Image Treatment immediately.

The “Page Size Exception” has now moved out to the main menu. This will allow you to select it, when you encounter a page that is not the same physical size as the rest of the document.

The other big change is that we have the machine calibrated to scan in color now. IN most cases, we won’t be using this, since color scans are so much larger than normal black and white or grayscale scans. But, the option is now there if we chose to use it. You can change from black and white to color by the page. Just select the “Set Color” button when you want to scan a color page.

BScanILL issues


To open BScan ILL software, the scanner must be ON. Otherwise it will not open properly or at all.
