I am a sane user in the same situation as you (another scanner, same backend).
You could read my firsts investigations http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/sane-devel/2017-April/035195.html

 Also take a look at this http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/sane-devel/2017-May/035363.htmlWich point at https://github.com/stefdev49/syseneg 
Please share your progress on this list.

 Ok, I can give it a try. Where do I start? The only thing to find out
is probably the values for color scales and scan area, if I understand
the config file correctly.
Wouldn't it be a good starting point to just copy these values from a
similar scanner to see how it goes?
