Abstract

This disclosure relates to a compact copier wherein the functions of cleaning, charging and development are combined in a single module 10. The module 10 comprises a housing 12 having a cleaning brush 14, charging brush 16 and a developing brush 18 operably supported therein. The housing is partitioned by a baffle member 20 which separates the developing brush 18 from the other brushes. The partition is provided with an opening 22 through which toner removed from a detoning roll 24 by means of a scraper 26 is passed. A photoreceptor 28 is moved in the direction of the arrow 30 into contact with the brushes 14, 16 and 18. A fiber optics array 32 disposed intermediate the brushes 16 and 18 adjacent the backside of the photoreceptor which is light transmissive serves to transmit light from, for example, a laser source (not shown) to the other surface of the photoreceptor.
