Low cost Gen4 Ionizing Bars eliminate static cling!

Compact, rugged design for industrial applications!

EXAIR’s Gen4 Ionizing Bar eliminates static electricity on paper, film and plastics that can attract dust and foreign materials, ruin product appearance, produce tearing or jamming, and zap personnel. The electrically powered Gen4 Ionizing Bar is compact, allowing it to fit in the confined spaces of machinery, where the charge is generated. A high concentration of positive and negative ions produce fast static decay, neutralizing any surface within 4" (102mm) of the bar.

The unique design of the shockless Gen4 Ionizing Bar offers improved performance and reliability in industrial applications. Life expectancy has been extended by insertion molding the stainless steel ion emitters into a durable plastic. There are no openings or grooves to accumulate dirt that could cause shorting or arcing. A 5kV power source provides high performance, eliminating frequent burnouts commonly associated with traditional 7kV bars.

How the Gen4 Ionizing Bar Works

How the Gen4 Ionizing Bar Works

The shielded power cable carries the 5kVrms power supply output to each capacitively coupled stainless steel emitter point of the Gen4 Ionizing Bar. An integrated ground wire within the power cable creates a discharge path from the emitter points to the bar channel . The discharge at each emitter charges the molecules of the gases of the surrounding room air, resulting in a shower of ions that are positively and negatively charged . If the material surface has a negative charge, it will attract the positive ions from the Gen4 Ionizing Bar and become balanced or neutralized. If the material surface has a positive charge, it will attract the negative ions from the Gen4 Ionizing Bar to become balanced or neutralized.

 

The voltage potential at each emitter is high enough to ionize the surrounding air without generating a shock when any of the emitters are touched.
