Plunger Mechanism

Figure 2-13 shows the plunger mechanism. The paper bail assembly is attached to the end of the plunger's iron core. The paper bail assembly axis is connected to the frame. When the plunger coil is energized, the force of the paper bail spring returns the paper bail assembly to its original position.

2.2 power supply operation

The printer can be powered by either of two power supply boards: the 120 V C204 PSB board or the 220/240 V C204 PSE board. The only difference in the operation of these two boards is in the primary circuitry. They supply power to the printer in the same way. The power supply board outputs the DC current required to drive the control circuits and printer drive mechanism. Table 2-1 shows the input voltages and fuse ratings of the boards and Table 2-2 shows the PSB/PSE board output specification.
