I have the IQSMART but I think they both work the same way wrt wet scanning. There's a mounting station and basically the top glass comes out and gets placed in the mounting station where you wet mount. I think in the old days they'd have 2 or 3 glass panels per machine and someone would be mounting on one panel and then the panel would get swapped with the one in the machine. So no wet mounting would happen on the scanner itself. The top glass panel in my scanner has a handle at each end and this was how they've carry them around
