A copy substrate registration mechanism registers substrates before they contact the photoreceptor belt where image transfer takes place. Center registration machines require variable top-edge sensor locations based on the various substrate widths that are being run. To handle the smaller substrates, the nips must be closer to the Transfer area. This invention addresses the problem of placing the top edge sensor at the appropriate location for the substrate width being run including smaller substrate sizes.
