Xerox Disclosure Journal
A modular and universal design for document handlers for use in electrophotographic printing and copying machines is disclosed. The modularity of the design allows the document handler to be configured to accommodate N-1 (reverse order or bottom stack feed), l-N (regular order or top stack feed), DADH (duplex automatic document handling) and RDH (recirculating document handling). The Figures 2 - 5 show several variations of the basic configuration of Figure 1. CVT refers to Constant Velocity Transport indicating an additional imaging station for a moving document. An earlier related universal document handler disclosure is found in U.S. Patent 4,881,729.
