AbstractA control system for a copier having at least one stapler for inhibiting the start of production by the copier in the event the number of staples is less than the number of copy sets to be stapled with the stapler. The system includes a sensing device adapted to produce a low staple signal when an approximated predetermined number of staples remain. The presence of this signal will permit continuation of the compilation of the copy set then being produced, or the compilation of copy sets in a sorter array associated with the copier and stapling thereof, and then inhibit the restart of the copier thereafter.
