Scan2x System Prerequisites





System prerequisites


Scan2x – installed on a PC as a kiosk or workstation


The installed version of Scan2x will run on any PC running the Microsoft™ Windows™ 10 operating system.  The interface has been designed for touchscreen use; however the software can run on a standard mouse-driven operating system - mouse clicks are used instead of finger taps.


To ensure that the installed version of the Scan2x software functions at its best, it is recommended that the system be installed on a PC with the following minimum specifications.


For PC-based implementations, each PC should be equivalent or greater to the following:

4-core Intel processor or better


500GB SSD hard disk

1GBit network card

Touchscreen interface (if software is to be used in touchscreen mode)

USB ports running USB-2 or better


For server-based implementations running ScanFront 400 and/or Canon iR MFD’s, the server specification will depend to some extent upon the expected level of usage. However, a good rule of thumb is that one should plan for one server for every thirty Scan2x devices. Each server should have a minimum of 16GB RAM and a 4-core processor, running Microsoft Server 2016 or later.


Scan2x Web Server – installed on a server for MFDs and ScanFront 400


By installing a server version of Scan2x, it is possible to run the software in browsers, on Canon ScanFront 400 devices and Canon imageRUNNER multifunctional devices (Generation 3 or later).


For this environment, the following minimum specification is recommended:

4-core Intel processor or better


500GB SSD hard disk

1GBit network card
