Abstract

Developer materials are typically humidity sensitive, and the developer chargeability, At, typically is high at low humidity and low at high humidity. Tonedcarrier combinations provide low sensitivity to humidity. Proposed is a method of providing At control at various humidities. Changing the developer housing speed in response to relative humidity (RH) changes (or other changes), is a way of eliminating At changes and provide improved, more uniform copy quality.
