The Xerox 2830 could make 20 letter size copies in one minute. This model was introduced in January 1982, and the warm-up time of this machine was only 75 seconds.
Each paper cassette easily attaches or detaches to change throughput size. The 8 ½" x 11", 8 ½" x 14" and 11" x 17" cassettes are standard equipment; the 5 ½" x 8 ½" cassette is optional. Each one holds 250 sheets of 20 lb. stock.
If you wanted to make a few copies on varying sizes or types of throughput, you don't have to change cassettes. Simply feed the different copy stock one sheet at a time into the single-sheet feeder.
The Xerox 2830 was also very quite when it operates. For large originals you could also detach the platen cover, in just a few seconds.
Below is the operating panel of the Xerox 2830.
Maximum number of copies one could enter was 99. If you're in the middle of a big copying job, and someone wants to make a few copies, you could touch the Job Interrupt button, make the copies, then go back to your job - the 2830 remembers exactly where it was before the interruption!
