  • Patent number: 5438435
    Abstract: A duplex document handler feeds document sheets from a document sheet supply to a stationary exposure position through which the document sheets are moved for scanning by a linear CCD array. Duplex document sheets are fed from the exposure station into a loop, leading edge first, and returned, still leading edge first, to the exposure for exposure of the opposite side of the sheet. The document sheets are moved in opposite directions through the exposure station for exposure of the two sides. The loop is the size to receive either one large, for example, ledger sized document, or two smaller, for example, letter or legal sized document sheets, before receipt of further document sheets.
