Abstract

Figure 1 is a side view of scan system 10 while Figure 2 is a top view of scan system 10. One of the major functions of scan system 10 is to move the optical scan components under the original document being scanned while limiting image motion. Typically, a carriage 12 is designed to house the optical elements and is driven by cables 14 at one or both ends.
