Title: AIR SUPPLY IN IMAGING DEVICES
Abstract:
The present subject matter describes a system for air supply in an imaging device. In an example implementation, the system includes a mounting assembly to house a fan of the imaging device. The mounting assembly has at least two outlets to discharge air blown by the fan. The system further includes a first air guide and a second air guide. The first air guide is coupled to one of the at least two outlets to supply air from the fan to internal electrical components of the imaging device to dissipate heat generated by the internal electrical components. The second air guide is coupled to the other of the at least two outlets to supply air from the fan to a media output region of the imaging device to dissipate moisture in air escaping from the imaging device at the media output region.
