Abstract

A copy handling module is disclosed that has the capability of feeding paper continuously while an operator has access to the main or auxiliary paper supply tray for replenishing purposes. The module has advantages over previous copy handling modules of providing ready access to paper trays without disrupting the feeding of paper from the tray not in use, switching automatically from one tray to another through a low paper switch signal and assuring safety of the operator that would be exposed to the machanics of the operating machine while loading paper.
