Abstract

This invention proposes a smart multi-component electrophotographic dispensing system to fix problems of additive depletion and the change of toner additive optimum set point, often brought about by aging or changes in environment. It is proposed to introduce a second auxiliary dispenser. Such a system contains developer with a toner concentration, (TC), that can be different than that used in the first or normal trickle sub-system and which can have an additive concentration (AC) which is also different.
