    AL-1000/1010 (2) Outline of print process Semiconductor laser This printer is a non-impact printer that uses a semiconductor laser and electrostatic print process. This printer uses an OPC (Organic Photo Conductor) for its photoconductive material. First, voltage from the main corona unit charges the drum sur- face and a latent image is formed on the drum surface using a laser beam.
  • Page 23 AL-1000/1010 Step-7: Optical discharge (Semiconductor laser) Non-image area Before the drum rotation is stopped, the semiconductor laser is -600 radiated onto the drum to reduce the electrical resistance in the OPC layer and elimate residual charge, providing a uniform state to the drum surface for the next page to be printed.

(Carrier may not be attracted though the carrier is pulled towards the drum by the electrostatic force of –400V. 2) Developing bias ( –400V) is applied when the photoconduc- tor potential is switched from LOW to HIGH.

    AL-1000/1010 (9) Power circuit block diagram Block diagram The power circuit is composed of the main section, the high voltage circuit, the FW signal section, and the heater lamp drive circuit. The main section directly rectifies the AC power current and switch-converts with the DC/DC convertor, and rectifies again and smoothes to form each DC power.

    AL-1000/1010 (10) Cl invertor PWB (circuit) CL (Xenon lamp) CL- (CNT) Invertor circuit and transformer Output 1.5kV (effective voltage) Input +24V Circuit description The Two transistors connected in series to the transformer are switched on/off by the control signal (CL-) from the MCU. By this switching operation, the signals are converted into switching pulses and a high frequency power is supplied to the CL (Xenon lamp) by the transformer.

    AL-1000/1010 The amplified CCD signal output is sent to the clamp circuit. In the clamp circuit, the black level is clamped to 2V at the BCLK signal timing by the analog switch. The clamped voltage is maintained for one line by the coupling capacitor. The clamped analog signal is impedance-converted and inputted to the AD convertor.
