Abstract

In the operation of a xerographic copy machine 1, a static charge may build up on the underside 3 of the platen glass 5 due partially to the movement of documents and/or feed belts over the top surface 7 of the glass 5. This static charge may attract dirt and toner particles to the underside 3 of the glass and require cleaning of the glass. By periodically passing a known static eliminator (grounded metal tinsel 9) across the underside 3 of the platen glass, this static charge can be minimized to prevent or minimize said dirt build-up on the underside of the glass. The tinsel 9 may be mounted to and extend along the reflector 10 or lamp carriage of the known scanning illumination lamp 12 assembly.
