Abstract

It is desirable to provide automatic or semi-automatic document feeders or document handlers, as they are variously known, for automatically feeding the document sheets to be imaged to a scanner, and merging the electronic pages scanned in into a collated electronic document for printing. Typically, such document feeders have limits set for the number of document sheets to be loaded therein at one time, e.g., 50 sheets or less, for reliable sheet separation and feeding.
