b. Opaque Projector.
projector reflects light from the surface of an opaque object rather than
passing through it. You would use this type of projector to display the
pages of a magazine or book, photographs, charts, etc., up to 10 inches
in size. It also can project any relatively small, flat objects such as
cams, gears, and coins without prior preparation. Most opaque projectors
use a 1000-watt lamp.
(1) Using the opaque projector.
This projector has three
the first position from off (middle position) controlling the operation
of the blower. An opaque projector has a feedbelt that feeds material
into the projector smoothly. Place the copy on the feedbelt, turn the
feedbelt handle, and center the image on the screen. If you have a thick
copy, insert it into the projector by unlocking the carriage, moving it
down with the copy space handle, and inserting the copy. Once you have
the image on the screen, use the focusing knob to adjust the clarity of
(a) Advantages of the opaque projector.
To protect the copy
from the heat generated by the lamp, this projector has a heat filter.
Additionally, the carriage has a glass pressure plate to help keep photos
and books flat for projection.
(b) An advantage of this projector is the pointer window and
handle. This window projects a small arrow on the screen that you use to
emphasize points on the screen. Moving the pointer handle up and down
moves the arrow vertically on the screen, and moving the pointer handle
left and right moves the arrow horizontally on screen.
(c) You also have the capability of increasing or decreasing
the magnification with this projector. To increase the magnification,
loosen the lens screw and move the lens back in its mount. To decrease
the magnification, pull the lens out, but no more than one inch.
(2) Cleaning an opaque projector. To ensure an opaque projector
also presents the image clearly, you must clean the optical element's
external surfaces with a lint-free cloth or lens tissue occasionally.
(The manufacturer seals the lens; therefore there are no internal
surfaces for the operator to clean.) To gain access to the rear surface
The most important and delicate optical surface you must clean is the
front surface mirror. Do not touch the mirror, leave
