Abstract

This article describes a grid wire configuration and end mount for use in a corona generator such as those in use on electrophotographic copier machines. In the prior art, individual grid wires were attached to the end mount with an extension spring anchored to a fixed attachment point. This resulted in the need to wrap an eyelet on both ends of the grid wire, and was difficult and time consuming to assemble.
