Title: Jump monocomponent development arrangement

Abstract: A jump monocomponent development arrangement includes a dielectric photoreceptor belt having an image-bearing surface on one side and a conductive surface on the other side with a thickness in the range from 30 microns to 50 microns and an electrostatic charge image on the image-bearing surface has a contrast potential of 1000 to 2000 volts. Toner particles with an average diameter in the range from one micron to 20 microns are transferred from a developer roll to the electrostatic charge image using a bias potential in the range from 500 volts to 1500 volts across a development gap in the range from 100 microns to 500 microns. The difference between the maximum development voltage and the threshold development voltage is less than the contrast potential.
