    Significance and Use

    This practice is for determining the color response of an electrostatic copy system by examining the black and white copies obtained from an electrostatic copier. This practice covers the capability of a copy system to reproduce various solid colors in varying shades of grey or black and white.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the determination of the color response of an electrostatic copy system, black and white output.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
