Abstract

In electrophotographic copying machines using heated roil fixing and hard surfaced rollers, it is common to measure the surface temperature of the roller by means of a sensor having direct contact with the roller surface. If soft rolls are to be used, however, it is not desirable for a sensor to be in contact with the roller because damage could easily occur to the roller surface.
