Title: DETERMINING MEDIA WEIGHT BASED ON FUSING SYSTEM ENERGY
Abstract:
In one example in accordance with the present disclosure, a method for determining media weight is described. According to the method, an energy used by a fusing system over a time interval is calculated and a number of pages processed by the fusing system during that time interval is determined. A fusing energy per processed page is then determined based on the energy used by the fusing system and the number of pages processed by the fusing system during the time interval. A media weight is then determined based on the fusing energy per processed page.
