Abstract

Picker belt 10 functions to advance top document 11 to separator belt 12. Separator belt 12 advances only the top document to feeding devices not shown. When the leading edge of 11 is detected by detector 15 consisting of light source 13 and photosensitive element 14, solenoid 16 is energized. Actuating solenoid 16 causes a scissoring action between pivot arm 17 and picker arm 18. Thus shoe 19 is pressed against top document 11 and 10 raises out of contact with it. This arrangement reduces buckling of 11 between picker 10 and separator 12.
