In xerographic imaging systems in which a document lying on a platen is scanned by a lamp/reflector arrangement, a carriage assembly of some type is employed to carry the arrangement in a line of travel beneath the platen. Figure 10 shows the drive system for a carriage assembly which has been designed to provide a gentle acceleration to reduce acceleration associated with start-of-scan operations.
