Anti-static bar is at home in small spaces

Anti-static bar is at home in small spaces

For packaging facilities tight on floorspace, technology improvements that help shrink equipment are most welcomed. And the new 3024 Ultra-Compact 24V DC static eliminator is designed for use in such confined spaces.

With an operational length of 47 millimeters (less than 2 inches), it can be combined with a fixed nozzle for ionized cleaning of packaging materials or used to form an ionized air gun. Built-in, high-voltage electronics provide a high degree of static elimination at close range to substrates and other materials.

The anti-static bar, available from Fraser Anti-Static Techniques, has integrated mounting holes and standard M8 four-pin connector for ease of retrofitting. Operating distance ranges from 20 to 150 millimeters (almost 6 inches), and it can deliver up to 7.5 kV from a low-voltage 24 VDC input. Pulsed DC high voltage provides good charge decay performance, even at longer distances.

Users can remotely monitor status using outputs compatible with IEC 61131-2 Type 3 PLC inputs.
