An electrophotographic printer or copier includes many different subsystems which require widely different levels of voltage to operate. For example, some motors within the machine may operate at 110 volts; smaller paper-handling motors may operate as 12 or 24 volts; and electronic control devices may operate at as little as 5 volts. Further, certain devices which are specific to electrophotographic printing, such as development or charging apparatus, may operate at as high as 1,000 volts.
