A CDE Definition
Stationary electrical charges in which no current flows. For example, laser printers and copy machines are electrostatic devices that place a positive charge of the image on a drum, and negatively charged toner is attracted onto the drum. The toner is then transferred to positively charged paper and fused to the paper by heat. See laser printer, electrostatic plotter, electrostatic printer and electrostatic speaker.
