Abstract

In various xerographic printers which have a Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) capability, there is a requirement to use a specific toner. Introducing an incorrect toner into the machine will result in the loss of MICR capability and a general loss of print quality. This disclosure defines a technique whereby the probability that the correct toner will be added to the machine is significantly increased.
