Abstract

There is a need for a self-contained static eliminating unit to eliminate the necessity for a complex harness and bulky power supply. In some machines there is often the problem of space as well as requirement of anti-static bars. Also, high voltage wire routings from the base (the power supply location) to the document handling system and the sorting system often introduce potential noise problems to the logic. In addition, the possibility of arcing exists from high tension cable bends to the nearest sharp edge or point of the frame (metal). Extra precaution has always been taken in reducing the above-mentioned problems by conventional insulating techniques. To overcome these probems in a simple manner, however, three concepts are proposed.
