Whether it’s large color posters, architectural sketches, detailed maps or drawings, the 42” imaging area can handle them all – with the high resolution and accuracy you expect from Contex scanners.


You can depend on the HD4230 for unmatchable full color and monochrome scans – at speeds you won’t believe!
