Abstract

In a xerographic system it is generally necessary to maintain a system ground between all components of the system. Usually, this type of component grounding is accomplished by connecting each component through a grounding harness. The harness is typically a braided wire terminated by a grounding lug, which is electrically attached to the components via a machine screw located on a conductive surface of the component. Unfortunately, use of the machine screw fastening method results in additional time to insert and tighten the screw during initial assembly and in subsequent service situations.
