Facsimile equipment (fax) has come into wide use for business and also for personal use recently. The total power consumption of these machines has become huge. As the fax is a communication equipment that can receive and transmit documents whilst unattended, then this equipment must be ready to receive documents at any time. The actual operation time of a prevailing business fax is short-about 99% is standby. Thus the effect of saving power consumption during the standby-state is very large. The RICOH MY310E (Rifax BL110: Japanese model) is a multi-functional machine with fax and copier functions using a laser printing method. This machine has achieved the minimization of power consumption during its standby state (1.4 W) and has taken the initiative in energy saving
