Description

Multi-mode scanner
Technical Field
The present invention relates to a scanner, and more particularly, to a multi-mode scanner capable of scanning a single side, even a double side of a general document as well as a bound document (or any folded document).
Background
In general, when a bound document such as a passport or a book is scanned, the bound document often has a non-uniform left-right thickness or cannot pass through a sheet-fed scanner smoothly due to a back of a book, a binding method, or the like, and therefore a flat-bed scanner must be used to obtain a document image. However, the flat bed scanner has a disadvantage in that both sides of the bound document cannot be scanned simultaneously, so that the user must turn over and scan again, which is time consuming and inconvenient.
On the other hand, government agencies such as customs often need to scan passports and certificates such as second-generation certificates to register entry. If a platform scanner for scanning passports is used for scanning double-sided images of the certificate, the scanning action must be repeated twice; if a sheet-fed scanner is added to conveniently and rapidly scan the document, the cost is high, a large amount of space is occupied, and the limited office environment is very unfavorable.
In addition, by matching with diversified authentication modes of fingerprints, chip cards and radio frequency identification, if the functions can be integrated on the scanner, the scanner can operate in more modes and meet various use requirements.
Disclosure of Invention
Therefore, an object of the present invention is to provide a multi-purpose scanner, which is suitable for single-side scanning of bound documents (or any bent documents) and general documents, or even double-side scanning, to form a convenient and fast scanning environment, and can reduce the cost of adding different types of scanners, save space, and achieve the purpose of one machine with multiple purposes.
To achieve the above object, the present invention provides a multi-mode scanner, which includes a first body, a second body and a scanning module. The first body is provided with a first side and a second side which are connected with the first body. The second body is connected to the first body, and a channel is formed between the first body and the second body and used for containing the first part of the bent file. The second portion of the folded document is connected to the first portion of the folded document and is supported by the second side of the first body. The first body and the second body are arranged to enable the bent document to be subjected to the action of gravity, so that the second part is flatly attached to the second side, or the first part is flatly attached to the first side. The scanning module is arranged in one or more of the first body and the second body and is used for executing image scanning on the first part of the bent file positioned in the channel to obtain an image signal.
The multi-mode scanner may further comprise a radio frequency identification reader, a fingerprint sensor and a card reader, and provides anti-counterfeiting, identity identification and data storage functions.
The multi-mode scanner is different from a common platform scanner and a common paper feed scanner, can automatically feed in and bend to scan (even double-sided scanning), is also suitable for single/double-sided scanning of common files, is simple to operate, time-saving, labor-saving and convenient to use, has the functions of fingerprint identification, wireless radio frequency identification and chip card reading, saves the cost of purchasing electronic devices of different types, saves space, and achieves the purposes of multi-mode operation, anti-counterfeiting, identity identification and data storage.

The scanning modules 240, 241 may be a visible light scanning module, an ultraviolet light scanning module, and an infrared light scanning module.
In the present non-limiting embodiment, the included angle between the first side 211 and the second side 212 is approximately 100 degrees. The included angle is any value between 10 degrees and 170 degrees in another example, between 20 degrees and 160 degrees in yet another example, and between 30 degrees and 150 degrees in yet another example. Although the channels 230 are disposed in an orientation parallel to the YZ plane, in other examples, the channels 230 may not be parallel to the YZ plane.
The folded document D passes through the scanning modules 240 and 241 in a manner of moving in the Y direction, and the main surface (surface with characters or patterns) of the folded document D faces in the negative X direction, and the folded document D may also have a secondary surface facing in the positive X direction, and the folded document D includes but is not limited to a bound document, a folded card, and the like.
The feeding mechanism 250 is installed in the first body 210 and the second body 220, and is used for feeding the folded document D through the passage 230. In the present embodiment, a roller is preferably used as the feeding mechanism.
The rfid reader 270 is disposed in the first body 210, and is configured to read rfid information of the bent document D, so as to provide an anti-counterfeit function. In other examples, the rfid reader 270 may be disposed in the second body 220, or disposed in both the first body 210 and the second body 220. The fingerprint sensor 280 is disposed on the first body 210 or the second body 220 for reading a fingerprint. The card reader 290 is disposed on the first body 210 or the second body 220 for reading a chip card or a memory card.
In addition, the scanner 200 may further comprise a plurality of cushions 291, 292 disposed on adjacent sides 201, 202 of the scanner for bearing the weight of the scanner in two modes, respectively. That is, in fig. 2, the cushion 292 bears the weight of the scanner 200 in the upright mode; in fig. 3, cushion 291 carries the weight of scanner 200 in the lying mode. The cushions 291, 292 may be fused directly to the sides 201, 202 to maintain aesthetics.
Fig. 4 shows a perspective view of the first body 210 of the multi-mode scanner of fig. 1. Fig. 5 shows a perspective view of the second body 220 of the multi-mode scanner of fig. 1. As shown in fig. 4 and 5, the mounting surface 223 of the second body 220 is mounted on the mounting surface 213 of the first body 210, and the mounting surface 224 of the second body 220 is mounted on the mounting surface 217 of the first body 210. The first body 210 is composed of a main body 214 and a base 215, which may be separable or integrally formed. When the multi-mode scanner 200 is to scan a non-flexed document DD, the non-flexed document DD may be positioned against the retaining wall 216 of the first body 210.
