Disclosed is a programmable toner area coverage sensor (TAC) for use in, for example, electrophotographic printing and copying machines. The ability to use a single sensor design for detecting toner area coverage on different photoreceptor substrate materials enables improved quality control, and reduced parts sourcing and inventory. Photoreceptor belts made from different materials typically have different surface reflectivity characteristics.
