Steel belt 1 with emitter marks 2 passes (in the arrow-marked direction) soft iron magnetic emitter head 4 with sensors 3. The distance between two emitter marks 2 is greater than that between two head sensors 3. As an emitter mark 2 passes sensor 3, an emitter signal, forming the basis of further printer subscan signals, is generated in a conventional manner, as shown.
