  • Patent number: 7110578
    Abstract: An electronic device stores a plurality of user's fingerprints in such a manner that each of a plurality of functions is stored in correspondence to any one of the fingerprints. Every time before using a function, the electronic device recognizes a user using a fingerprint corresponding to the function. For example, when the right thumb, right index finger and right middle finger are respectively stored in correspondence to an individual recognition function, imaging execution function and copy quantity setting function, at least three fingerprints are checked while the user is recognized by the electronic device, the copy quantity is set and imaging is accomplished. In such a manner that a user is multiply identified by a plurality of fingerprints during using the electronic device, the accuracy in recognizing a user and security can be enhanced with the structure as simple as the conventional one.

  • Patent number: 5754713
    Abstract: An image-reading device is provided with a case having an empty section, a scanner for scanning an original so as to output image data derived from the original by reciprocally moving inside the empty section, a transparent reading-use window that faces the reading region of the original with respect to the scanner, and a transparent confirming-use window that is formed in the case so as to face the reading-use window, with the empty section located in between. This device enables visual confirmation of the original through the reading-use window, the empty section and the confirming-use window. Therefore, the device allows the operator to confirm a positional relationship between the reading-use window that forms the image-reading surface for the scanner and the original to be read through visual observation, readily as well as accurately. Thus, the device makes it possible to readily output the image data accurately.

  • Patent number: 4905051
    Abstract: A fixing means for an electrophotographic copier includes a first roller and a second roller which are compressed against each other and serve to fix toner images on an image transferring medium passed therebetween. A control means is programmed to operate the rollers such that the heating of the second roller is continued for a predetermined length of time or until the surface temperature of the second roller reaches a certain predetermined temperature level after the surface temperature of the first roller reaches another predetermined temperature level such that the second roller is prevented from cooling down suddenly after the fixing operation is started. In another aspect of the present invention, the size of the image transferring medium passed between the rollers is detected and the heaters for the rollers are controlled accordingly such that temperature variations on the roller surfaces can be reduced and hence the roller lifetimes can be improved.
