Abstract

Charging devices generally have ion generating wires or pins mounted thereto. Electric power is applied to the wires or pins in order to generate ions. In terms of maintenance safety, electric power is supplied through two high voltage supplying pins mounted on the longitudinal end of the charging device. However, this configuration limits not only a configuration of the detach direction of the charging device but also the design feasibility

UNIVERSAL MOUNT CHARGE DEVICE (CONT'D)

of universal charging devices which would be applicable to most printing apparatus. Disclosed is an approach to provide a universal charging device and a charging device having multiple detaching planes.

Figure 1 indicates a charging device of the present invention. In this embodiment, the charging device comprises two main portions which are the base 1 for the charging device and the corotron 2. A high voltage supply pin 3 and shield return pin 4 are mounted on one longitudinal end of the base 1. These pins are inserted into power supply sockets of the main body of the image printing apparatus (not shown) by pushing the base 1 along with the longitudinal direction. The base 1 has two grooves 8 and 10 which are formed along a perpendicular direction to the body. The grooves 8, 10 have recessed porti...
