Abstract

Proposed is an enhancement to a built-in Electrostatic Voltmeter (ESV) used to measure photoreceptor surface voltages in a xerographic printing machine. The enhancement provides additional capability to the ESV for measuring other critical voltages. Consequently, all of the critical xerographic voltages are placed on a common measurement basis to substantially reduce total system variability. This is especially important in high quality color printing where relative voltage accuracies of 5 to 10 volts are required.
