You are running a very old sane-backends. Too bad it does not give any
information about the chipset used. I suggest you try the latest
sane-backends: 1.0.21. Maybe you will get more useful information from
it because at latest sane I note that there are several models of the
brand UMAX that have the 0x1606 vendor ID and are supported by a
variety of backends depending on the chip used:

- plustek
- rts8891
- umax1220u

So please see what output you can get from the latest SANE.

Best regards,
