Xerox Disclosure Journal
This disclosure relates to a document imaging system and describes a method of controlling exposure variations caused by operating temperature variations of the document illuminating light source. A typical light source in a document copier such as a fluorescent lamp, has a light output that varies as a function of operating temperature. For example, over a temperature span of 80°F to 120°F, the light output within a single run can vary as much as +/- 20%, respectively.
