Model 8192 Ion Air Cannon

EXAIR Corporation has introduced a new design for our Ion Air Cannon. The new design is able to perform all of the same functions as our previous model with
the additional features that the product is even more rugged to withstand the rigors of industrial, everyday use in a variety of applications. The Ion Air Cannon performs on bench-top applications, can be mounted to a wall or ceiling, or placed in tight spaces within machinery to eliminate static. 

The New Ion Air Cannon, Model 8192 still has the UL component recognition for the US and Canada. It is also OSHA compliant for dead-end pressures in that it keeps the output pressure well below 30 PSIG when dead ended. Keeping our RoHS compliance was another important factor when putting together the new Ion Air Cannon design parameters. Beyond these compliances, the New Ion Air Cannon is also CE compliant to applicable European directives for safety as well as electromagnetic interference.

With the new design, we have integrated the grounding reference into the high voltage cable so there is now only one connection that must be made at the power supply for the high voltage signal as well as the return path for Earth ground. We have also changed the cable construction to be built using a PVC coated, stainless steel, armored cable to withstand many common hazards, thus protecting the internal conductors as well as providing electrical shielding to maintain CE compliance.

The modular, high voltage, cable assembly is also removable to allow for cleaning and replacement of the solid, stainless steel emitter point to insure problem free operation. The New Ion Air Cannon comes standard with a 5 ft. long, high voltage cable. However, other cable lengths up to 50 ft. are available by request for applications where mounting the Ion Air Cannon remotely from the power supply is necessary.

When powered by Model 7960, dual input voltage, Power Supply, the new, model 8192 Ion Air Cannon remains shockless to operators and incorporates over-current protection by means of an integrated fuse in the power supply as well as a shunting secondary to lower the voltage output to zero volts should the high voltage cable become damaged and cause a shorted condition.

The New Ion Air Cannon will make a substantial addition to any application requiring a flexible static eliminating solution to be mounted and operated by personnel working in packaging, finishing, plastic molding, pre-paint dust removal and many more applications.

Give the New Ion Air Cannon a try. You will be pleased with the fast static decay times and impressed with how easy it can remove static in your application.
