EzeScan PC / Server specifications can change depending on your scanning requirements. A suitable machine for scanning large volumes of colour documents will differ from a machine intended mainly for black & white scanning or KFI indexing. Please feel free to contact us if you require more assistance with specifying your EzeScan PC hardware.

EzeScan can be configured to work on 32-bit or 64-bit Windows operating systems. 

  • On 32-bit Windows operating systems, EzeScan will use 32-bit TWAIN scanner drivers, and will work with USB or FireWire connected scanners.
  • On 64-bit Windows operating systems, EzeScan will still use 32-bit TWAIN drivers. Our testing shows that 32-bit TWAIN drivers for USB-connected scanners function well on a 64-bit operating system. Microsoft's 64 to 32 bit USB driver translation layer allows the scanner to work as expected. However during our testing we found that 32-bit TWAIN drivers for FireWire-connected scanners will not always work on 64-bit Windows operating systems (unless the scanner Vendor has certified their driver to do so)

EzeScan PRO

Below is a minimum specification for EzeScan PRO.

  • Intel™ Core i7 3.06 GHz i7-950 or AMD equivalent processor
  • 8GB Ram 
  • 250GB SSD
  • 1000 Mbps Ethernet (for network scanners or to store to EDRMS / network repositories)
  • A video controller with at least 512MB RAM
  • Monitor supporting at least 1600 x 1280 pixel resolution
  • Microsoft Windows 10, 8.1, 7, Vista, Windows Server 2016, Server 2012 R2, Server 2012, Server 2008 R2 (Note: EzeScan LITE and PRO is a foreground application)
  • x64-bit Operating system
  • Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.5.2
  • USB or SCSI connection for scanner (USB 2.0 recommended)
  • A TWAIN or ISIS compliant scanner (please refer to our supported scanner list)

For high volume production environments we recommend the fastest quad core Intel CPU (with hyperthreading). The latest i7 5th generation CPU's perform well. Minimum of 16GB of RAM. We recommend using a motherboard that supports the RAM operating at 2133GHZ. The operating system should be run from an SSD, not a HDD or a hybrid HDD/SSD.

Please note: Installing EzeScan on poorly spec'ed equipment may compromise processing speed. We highly recommend using the minimum specifications as listed above.

EzeScan SERVER

Below is a minimum specification for an EzeScan SERVER (Routing).

  • 1 Intel™ Quad Core 2.26 GHz E5520 or AMD equivalent processor
  • 8GB Ram 
  • 250GB HDD, preferably SSD.
  • 1000 Mbps Ethernet (for network scanners or to store to EDRMS / network repositories)
  • A video controller with at least 64MB RAM
  • Monitor supporting at least 1024 x 768 pixel resolution
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016, Server 2012 R2, Server 2012, Server 2008 R2
  • Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.5.2

Note: This is for a single instance of EzeScan SERVER. Additional instances may be required to provide acceptable processing speeds. The additional instance(s) will require more RAM (a minimum of 16GB of RAM should be installed when running 2-3 instances)

For high volume production environments we recommend buying a server that supports multiple CPU's.  Choose the fastest clock speed Intel E5-2600 version 3 CPU's (with hyperthreading) and the maximum number of cores that you can afford. Minimum 32GB of RAM per CPU installed. Use the highest speed RAM that will operate with the CPU. The operating system should be run from an SSD, not a HDD or a hybrid HDD/SSD.

EzeScan WebApps

Below is a minimum specification for an EzeScan WebApps (if EzeScan SERVER is going to be installed on the same server then please note the specifications above)

  • Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit edition), Windows Server 2012 (64-bit edition) , Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit edition).
    • IIS Application pool running ASP.Net 4.5 framework.
    • IIS Needs the following role services enabled/installed:  
    • Application Development 
      • ASP.NET
      • .NET Extensibility
      • ISAPI Extensions
      • ISAPI Filters
         
  • Ensure that all windows updates have been installed

Please note: The following PowerShell command can be used to enable/install the IIS features needed
