Section: SANE Scanner Access Now Easy (5)
Updated: 14 Jul 2008
The sane-teco1 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to some TECO SCSI flatbed scanners. This backend should be considered beta-quality software! TECO scanners are sold under various brands like RELISYS, PIOTECH, TRUST. This backend may or may not support yours.
The scanners that should work with this backend are:
Vendor Model TECO model status ---------------------- -------------- ----------- Relisys AVEC 2400 VM3520 tested Relisys AVEC 2412 VM3520+ tested Relisys AVEC 4800 VM4530 untested Relisys AVEC 4816 VM4530+ untested Relisys RELI 2400 VM3530 untested Relisys RELI 2412 VM3530+ tested Relisys RELI 2412 VM3530+ untested Relisys RELI 4816 VM4540 tested Relisys RELI 4830 VM4542 tested Relisys RELI 9600 VM6530 untested Relisys RELI 9612 VM6530* untested Relisys RELI 9624 VM6530+ untested Relisys RELI 9630 VM6540 untested Relisys RELI DS15 VM3440 untested Relisys RELI DS6 VM3420 untested Dextra DF-600P VM3510 tested Dextra DF-4830T VM4542 untested Dextra DF-1200T+ VM3530+ untested Dextra DF-9624 VM6530+ untested
Note that the untested scanner will not be directly supported. You should contact the author for that.
The TECO VM number can usually be found at the back of the scanner. It is also part of the FCC ID. "sane-find-scanner -v" will also show the scsi inquiry, and if it is a TECO scanner, the name will be there too.
The options the backend supports can either be selected through command line options to programs like scanimage or through GUI elements in xscanimage or xsane.
If you have any success with a scanner not listed here, or if you have any strange behavior, please report to the backend maintainer or to the SANE mailing list.
Valid command line options and their syntax can be listed by using
The configuration file /etc/sane.d/teco1.conf supports only one information: the device name to use (eg /dev/scanner).
The windows TWAIN driver has many more options than this SANE backend. However they are only software adjustments. This backend only implements what the scanner can support.
