While any scanner will eventually show effects of wear and tear on the rollers and separators, replacements are needed infrequently on most ordinary desktop check scanners. Due to the extremely high number of items typically captured and sorted by the Quantum DS, these parts wear down much more quickly, and replacements are common. For perspective, with many Quantum DS users scanning 25,000 documents per day (or more!), they will often exceed the total lifetime usage of most teller scanners in as little as a week or two.
The new consumables kit is intended primarily for Quantum DS users with extremely heavy usage, or with multiple machines. Please contact your Digital Check distributor for ordering information.
