The performance specification figures indicated are nominal values of production units. There may be some deviations from these values in individual units.

Using the SPF

(1) Make sure that no original is left on the original table.

(2) Adjust the original guides to the size of originals.

(3) Set the originals face up in the document feeder tray.

40

SINGLE PASS FEEDER (AR-SP3)

Before feeding originals in the document feeder tray, be sure to remove any staples or paper clips from them.

Before placing curled or wavy originals into the document feeding tray, be sure to flatten them. If not, original misfeeds may result.

The SPF ( ) indicator on the operation panel will light up. If this indicator does not light up, the originals are not properly set or the SPF is not properly closed.

Badly damaged originals may misfeed in the SPF. It is recommended that such originals be copied from the original table.

Special originals such as transparency film should not be fed through the

SPF, but should be placed directly on the original table.

Original face up

Stream feeding mode

The stream feeding mode allows easy operation of continuous copying from the SPF.

If the stream feeding mode has been enabled using user program No.4, the SPF ( ) indicator will blink approximately 5 seconds after the last original has been fed by the SPF. While this indicator is blinking, any new originals placed in the document feeder tray will be fed and copied automatically. If the stream feeding mode has been disabled, the print ( ) key must be pressed each time the originals are set even immediately after completion of a copy run from the SPF.

The default setting of the stream feeding mode is "ON". See page 20, USER PROGRAMS.

Misfeed in the SPF

An original misfeed may occur at one of three locations: if the misfed original is seen from the document feeder tray, (A) in the document feeder tray; if the misfed original is not seen from the document feeder tray, (B) in the exit area or (C) under the feeding roller. Remove the misfed original following the instructions for each location.

(A) Open the feeding roller cover and pull the original gently to the left and out from the document feeder tray. Close the feeding roller cover. Open and close the original cover to clear the SPF misfeed ( ) indicator.

If the misfed original cannot be easily removed, proceed to (C) without pulling the original forcibly from the document feeder tray.

Section 4.

Hazardous Identification (Emergency Overview)

Toner is a fine, black powder possessing no immediate hazard. There are no anticipated carcinogenic effects from exposure based on animal tests performed using toner. When used as intended according to instructions, studies do not indicate any symptoms of fibrosis will occur.

Section 5.

Health Hazard Data

Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation?

Skin?

Ingestion?

Yes No Possible but very unusual.

Health Hazards: Acute oral toxicity ------------- LDL0 of this toner is over 2,000m g /k g .

Mutagenicity -------------------- The result of Ames test is negative.

Carcinogenicity: In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible human carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate human evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of carcinogenicity. The classification is based upon the development of lung tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation exposures to free carbon black at levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies performed in animal models other than rats did not show any association between carbon black and lung tumors.

Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor development in rats.

Chronic Effect: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration

(16m g /m 3 ) exposure group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in

22% of the animals in the middle (4m g /m 3 ) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1m g /m 3 ) exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures.

Signs and Symptoms of Exposure: Minimal irritation to respiratory tract may occur as with exposure to any non-toxic dust.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: None

Emergency and First Aid Procedures:

Inhalation; Remove to fresh air. If effects occur, consult medical personnel.

Eye; In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with water for 15 minutes.
