Evrex Overhead Scanner


Sonnet 1800Overhead Scanner delivers a powerful yet affordable book scanning solution for libraries. This leading-edge technology reduces book scanning to page-turning: it creates flat scans from curved books, removes the user’s thumbs from the scan area, separates the left page from the right page, and crops the images with intelligent tilt correction and auto-cropping. The Sonnet 1800 overhead scanner is powered by Scannx state-of-the-art software.

As powerful as the Sonnet 1800 Overhead Scanner is, this state-of-the-art scanner solution makes it easy for everyone to use. Flexible in design from the ground up, it enables users to control the scanner using a touch screen, a hand button, or a foot pedal while scanning pages at the ultra-fast rate of 6 seconds per page – including dual-facing pages of a book or A3-size documents.

Security Stand

Sonnet 1800 Overhead Scanner ships with a custom security stand to protect the scanner from theft in high-traffic areas. It is easily installed in minutes, fits the scanner perfectly, and can be attached to a table for further protection.


The Sonnet Overhead Scanner is designed with accessibility built-in from the ground up. The touchscreen interface is designed for ultimate ease of use and includes contrast and magnifying tools for the visually impaired. Audio narration is built in. And the selection of scan controls consists of a simple touch on display, a desktop button for the hand, or a foot pedal to keep the hands free. We also offer a 48” x 30” height adjustable table to meet additional ADA-compliant requirements.

Keep Your Library Green

The system also helps you meet your environmental goals by allowing your scans to be sent to or stored on various media rather than printed. The Standard Edition software includes output to email, Google Drive, mobile devices, network, print, USB drive, and Wēpa. Add-on options include Article Exchange, Box, Dropbox, fax, ILLiad, Odyssey, Office 365, OneDrive, print from cloud or USB drive, print from a mobile device, Tipasa, and WorldShare ILL.

Supported Billing Systems

The scanner supports ITC and Jamex coin and debit/credit card systems. It also works with leading print management vending systems, including Pharos, EnvisionWare, P-Counter, Blackboard, and CBORD.
