Abstract

In xerographic liquid development of electrostatic latent images, the maximum voltage between the imaging member and the applicator -oller which can generally be tolerated is about 600 volts. At higher voltages there ta a tendency for air-breakdawn to occur resulting in spurious discharge of. parts of the imaging member due to arcing between the member and the applicator roller.

In xerographic liquid development of electrostatic latent
images, the maximum voltage between the imaging member and the
applicator ~oller which can generally be tolerated is about
600 volts. At higher voltages there ta a tendency for air-
breakdawn to occur resulting in spurious discharge of. parts of
the imaging member due to arcing between the member and the
applicator roller.

Rowever., by ingteasing the voltage at the exposure station to
about 900 volts and then reducing the voltage on the imaging
member to about 600 volts at a point prior to the developing
station, damage to the imaging member and applicator roller is
minimized and faithful development of the latent image is ob-
tained.
