Illustrated in Figures 1 and 2 is a corona discharge device comprising a subassembly 70 including an insulative, generally rectangular-shaped frame member 72. A corona wire 27 is permanently secured to the frame member such that together with the frame member and a pair of corotron caps (not shown) they form the subassembly 70. Each end portion 74 of the structure 70 has secured thereto a clip member 76 adapted to receive a ball stud 78 forming an integral part of an optics module (not shown). Thus, the subassembly can be readily attached to and detached from the optics module 80 which forms a permanent part of the machine.
