Abstract

In an electrophotographic printing machine, a magnetic brush developer roller is frequently employed to deposit toner par-tides on the latent image recorded on a photoconductive surface, As shown in Figure 1, a flexible electrode 10 is interposed between developer roller 12 and photoconductive surface 14. The spacing between electrode 10 and photo-conductive surface 14 is determined by the amount of toner particles being transported by developer roller 12- In the embodiment depicted in Figure 1, the toner particles move from developer roll 12 onto electrode 10 and then deposit on the latent image recorded on photoconductive surface 12,
