Abstract

Copiers and other electrically controlled devices require a control panel as a means for the operator to designate how the machine should operate. If the machine has more than one configuration the control panel must be designed so as to be changeable or to contain all alternatives. These panel layouts must be determined early in the design making it difficult to incorporate late improvements or retrofits.
