Anti-static bar is at home in small spaces

By Jenni Spinner in Static Control Equipment on September 10, 2019

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.
