AR-M351U/M451U, AR-M355U/M455U  MAINTENANCE AND DETAILS OF EACH SECTION  7 - 22
C. Operational descriptions
(1) Fusing unit drive
To drive the fusing unit, the drive power is transmitted from the
drive motor (MM) through the connection gear to the upper heat
roller gear. 
The drive motor DC brushless motor is driven according to the
control signal sent from the PCU.
(2) Heater lamp drive
The surface temperature of the heat roller detected by the ther-
mistor is sent to the PCU.
When the temperature is lower than the specified level, the heater
lamp lighting signal is sent from the PCU to the heater lamp drive
circuit in the sub power PWB.
The power triac in the heater lamp drive circuit is turned on, and
the AC power is supplied to the heater lamp, lighting the lamp and
heating the heat roller.
To prepare for an abnormally high temperature of the heat roller,
the thermostat is provided for safety.
When the thermostat is opened, power supply (AC line) to the
heater lamp is cut off.
(3) Fusing operation
Toner on paper is heated and pressed to be fused by the heat
roller.

AR-M351U/M451U, AR-M355U/M455U  MAINTENANCE AND DETAILS OF EACH SECTION  7 - 23
The fusing heat roller (heating) is provided with two heater lamps,
which heat the fusing roller to fuse toner onto paper.
The fusing rollers (pressing) are of silicon rubber because of the
following reasons and purpose.
1) Paper is separated upward. (Since the fusing roller (heating) is
of higher hardness, the fusing roller (pressing) is deformed to
separate paper upward.)
2) The nip quantity is increased to increase heat capacity for
paper.
3) By pressing paper with the flexible roller, toner is fused without
deformation.
(4) Fusing temperature control
The temperature sensor is provided at the center of the fusing
roller (heating).
The roller temperature is detected by the installed temperature
sensor, and the heater lamp is controlled so that the temperature
is maintained at the specified level.
In addition, the fusing temperature is switched according to the
kind of paper.
(5) Cleaning roller
The fusing section cleaning roller of this machine is made of the
blast process.
1) Remaining toner attaches to the upper heat roller.
2) Due to coating and the temperature characteristics of the
upper heat roller, toner is not attached to the upper heat roller
but to the lower heat roller.
3) Remaining toner on the lower heat roller is further attached to
the cleaning roller due to the temperature characteristics and
the difference in roughness of surfaces of the rollers.
4) Remaining toner attached to the cleaning roller is accumulated
until the roller is replaced.
