Windows device driver information for SNAPSCAN e52

The SNAPSCAN e52 is a scanner that is created and manufactured by Agfa. In computing, a scanner is a device that optically scans pictures, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image. Usual examples that are found in offices are variations of the desktop scanner where the document is placed on a glass window for scanning. The Hand-held scanners, where the device is moved by hand, have developed from text scanning 'wands' to 3D scanners utilized for industrial structure, reverse engineering, test and measurement, orthotics, gaming and other applications. Mechanically driven scanners that move the document are generally utilized for large-format documents, where a flatbed design would be impractical. Modern scanners generally make use of0 a charge-coupled device or a Contact Image Sensor as the image sensor, whereas older drum scanners utilized a photomultiplier tube as the picture sensor.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

The SNAPSCAN e52 is a scanner. In general, scanners can be considered the successors of early telephotography input devices, composed of a rotating drum with a single photo detector at a standard speed of 60 or 120 rpm. They send a linear analog AM signal via standard telephone voice lines to receptors, which synchronously print the comparative intensity on special paper. This system was in utilization in press from the 1920s to the mid-1990s. Color photographs were sent as three individual RGB filtered images successively, but only for special events because of transmission costs. Drum scanners capture image details with photomultiplier tubes, rather than the charge-coupled device arrays found in flatbed scanners and affordable film scanners. Reflective originals are escalated on an acrylic cylinder which is the scanner drum, which rotates at high speed while it passes the object being scanned in front of accuracy optics that generates image information to the PMTs. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and SNAPSCAN e52 errors before installing any driver updates.
