High Voltage Power Supply for Electrophotographic Printers

This article describes an improved high voltage power supply for an electrophotographic printer.

(Image Omitted)

As shown in Fig. 1, which is an exploded view of the supply, it includes a printed circuit card 10, which is secured between a cover 12 and housing 14, the housing having hollow towers 16 molded therein. Circuit contact pins 18 having central rings 19 are captivated between the housing 14 and circuit card 10, and are biased by springs 20 against appropriate contact points on the card 10 and into the towers 18. A control knob 22 is also provided which extends from the card 10 through the housing 14. Power is supplied by a power cable 22 to a socket 24 on the card 10.

Fig. 2 shows the power supply assembled with the various pins 18 extending through the towers 18 which provide a conductive compliant system for high voltage supply to a printer.
