May 1979 Xerox announced the 2300 model to the market. The compact Xerox 2300 was designed for the small office or small business that didn't do a lot of copying. The first copy appeared after 6 seconds, the rest at a rate of 10 per minute.
Accepted input originals up to 8 1/2" x 14" legal size, including photograps, paste-ups and bound volumes
Quantity selector could be dialed from 1 to 15; automatically returns to 1 after the job.
The paper path inside the copier was quite simple. When the paper left the paper tray, a "gripper bar" with two clips opened and grabbed the paper and transported it under the drum, and through the fuser. The fuser unit was a heat roller and pressure roller, and the paper passed between the two rollers in order for the toner to melt into the paper.
The control panel consisted of the ordinary green Start print/copy button, and a wheel with quantity selector. There was a display at the top/back end of the machine, where it showed symbols of ready and paper jam.
