GENERATING COLLATED ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS FROM DUPLEX DOCUMENTS FED TO A SCANNER BY A SIMPLEX DOCUMENT FEEDER (CONT'D)

are well known, but more costly, larger and more complex than simple simplex document feeders for feeding the document sheets only once to image only one side of the sheets. An example of an automatic duplex document handler is the Xerox Corporation "DocuTech" RDH scanner system which automatically copies duplex documents by feeding and scanning the duplex document set sheets on one side thereof, automatically inverting them, and then feeding and scanning the other sides of that set of sheets, and merging the electronic pages scanned in into a collated electronic document for printing. In this "DocuTech" RDH scanner the document feeding and scanning page order is the same for both passes - reverse or N to 1 page order.

Disclosed herein, as shown in the figure, is a two step control sequence system for generating a collated electronic document with a scanner having a simple simplex document...
