Understanding UL Compliance Marks

UL stands for Underwriter Laboratories, a third-party certification company that’s been around for over a century. UL was founded in 1894 and Headquartered in Northbrook, IL. UL is a privately held company with over 14,000 employees and located in over 36 countries*. They certify products with the aim to make the world a safer place for both workers and consumers. Besides testing, they set industry standards to follow when innovating new products. 

EXAIR is UL recognized within our Static Eliminators, Cabinet Cooler Systems and Hazardous Cabinet Cooler Systems. The UL Component Recognized mark below is what you will see on our static eliminating products including our GEN 4 Power Supplies, GEN 4 Ion Bars and Intellistat Ion Air Gun.

If a product or device carries one of these markings, it’s been evaluated for safety by top professionals in the field.**

This mark is seen least often because it is specifically used on component parts that are part of a larger product system. This component mark is used on a wide range of products including but not limited to power supplies, industrial control equipment and many other products. You will notice the “C” and “US” on either side of the main logo indicating the product has been tested for compliance for both Canada and US requirements.

EXAIR Cabinet Cooler Systems have The “Listed” UL marking indicating that the product meets the requirements and have passed the testing required to gain the mark for specific characteristics.

EXAIR Cabinet Cooler Systems have the following UL Marking indicating they are UL Listed for both Canada and USA requirements.

If a product or device carries one of these markings, it’s been evaluated for safety by top professionals in the field.

EXAIR has NEMA 12, 4 and 4X Cabinet Cooler Systems and each are UL Listed to maintain NEMA Integrity:

NEMA 12 (IP54) Cabinet Coolers: (Dust tight, oil tight) are ideal for general industrial environments where no liquids or corrosives are present.

NEMA 4 (IP66) Cabinet Coolers: (Dust tight, oil tight, splash resistant, indoor/outdoor service) incorporate a low pressure relief valve for both the vortex tube and cabinet exhaust. This valve closes and seals when the cooler is not in operation.

NEMA 4X (IP66) Cabinet Coolers: (offer the same protection as NEMA 4 but are constructed of stainless steel for food service and corrosive environments.

Note: some cabinet Coolers have thermostats that are UL Listed and Solenoids which are UL Recognized.

Our Hazardous Cabinet Cooling Systems have been tested by UL and meet the stringent UL requirements for service in use in Class I, Group A,B,C and D. Class II, Group E,F and G. and Class III. EXAIR Hazardous Cabinet Coolers have a UL Marking as shown below:

UL Classification for EXAIR Cabinet Cooler Systems

UL’s Marks for our Classification service appear on representative samples of products that UL has evaluated with respect to specific properties, a limited range of hazards or suitability for use under limited or special conditions. In the Classification service, UL determines that a manufacturer has demonstrated the ability to produce a product complying with UL’s requirements with respect to; specific risk, specific conditions, compliance to regulatory codes & standards, and/or other conditions as determined by UL.

All products carrying any UL mark are subjected to UL’s Follow-Up Services program to regularly confirm continued compliance with UL’s requirements.

Two Specialized Air Guns for Static Removal

EXAIR manufactures a range of Static Eliminator products that are all efficient, effective, and easy to use…none more so than the Gen4 Ion Air Gun. Consider:

  • It’s “plug and play,” all the way.  Connect the cable to the Power Supply, and hook it up to your compressed air system, and you’re ready to go.
  • It’s efficient and quiet.  The high velocity jet entrains an enormous amount of air from the surrounding environment, where it’s ionized and ready to eliminate static charge quickly and effectively.
  • Instant static dissipation, at your fingertips (literally) – squeeze the trigger to blow ionized air, anywhere you want (well, within the reach of the 10 foot cable, anyway.)
  • This is our rugged, industrial use model which can be seen in assembly, packaging, painting/coating and plastics processes.
Model 8493 Gen4 Ion Air Gun Kit comes with everything you need, right out of the box. Just add compressed air.

Again, the Gen4 Ion Air Gun is just one of our Static Eliminator products.  Another handheld Static eliminator is our Intellistat Ion Air Gun, this product is more geared towards clean room type applications.

EXAIRs’ Intellistat Ion Air Gun has earned a Class 5 Cleanroom Rating making it ideal for static elimination in cleanrooms for sensitive processes. There are manufacturing processes that require certain cleanliness standards for operation in such as scientific research, solar panel manufacturing or biotechnology industries. This means that any tool or material you use in this process has to meet a certain standard. EXAIR’s Intellistat was engineered to do just that.

EXAIR Intellistat Ion Air Gun

The Intellistat Ion Air Gun is a patented handheld air gun for static elimination in sterile environments and clean rooms. This lightweight tool provides rapid static decay with a simple squeeze of a short-throw trigger reducing 5,000 volts to 500 in under second. Furthering the Intellistat’s utility, it has now been awarded the ISO 14644-1 Class 5 rating for clean rooms and controlled environments making it the perfect tool for electronics manufacturing, testing facilities and laboratories.

The Intellistat is the ideal solution for static elimination in your sensitive processes. Learn more about the Intellistat as well as the rest of EXAIR’s large line of static elimination products at www.EXAIR.com or by contacting any of our Application Engineers.

EXAIR Gen 4 Power Supplies

EXAIR offers systems for total static control. When static is a problem on moving webs, sheet rock, three dimensional parts, extrusions or packaging, EXAIR has a solution. The Gen4 static eliminators (also called ionizers) will eliminate the static charge. The shockless ionizers are use a power supply and produce a bulk of positive and negative ions. The charged surface attracts the appropriate number of positive or negative ions from the ionizer to become neutral (discharged).

Gen 4 Power Supplies

The two and four outlet Gen 4 power supplies have selectable voltage which allows you to choose input voltages of 115 VAC or 230 VAC. The modular power cable with electromagnetic shielding protects sensitive electronics against electromagnetic interference while easing connections and routing. One cable is for domestic USA power outlets and another is included to facilitate international outlet plugs. An integrated fuse on the primary protects against voltage spikes.

The two and four outlet selectable voltage Gen 4 power supplies require an input of 115VAC, 50/60 Hz or 230VAC, 50/60 Hz. A 6′ (1.83m) modular power cord and lighted power switch are included. Power supplies are UL Component Recognized to U.S. and Canadian safety standards, and are CE and RoHS compliant.

One power supply is able to power up two or four Gen4 static eliminators, which minimizes the space required for installation. EXAIR will build custom length cables to minimize the number of power supplies needed when products are spaced out. Each power supply can power up to 100′ of total cable length from any Gen4 static eliminators which are connected. For example, a two outlet power supply can have two Gen4 static eliminators with 50′ cables installed. The integrated high voltage connections to accept any Gen4 static eliminator are made from stainless steel to provide durability.

Model 7960 Gen4 Power Supply (top) has two ports; Model 7961 (bottom) has four, depending on how many Static Eliminators you wish to operate from the same Power Supply

Combining our engineered airflow products with ionizers gives the ability to eliminate a static charge quickly from from great distances. Laminar flow airstreams make it possible to blow away contaminants and eliminate the charge that attracts them. If you have questions or want additional information please contact any of our Application Engineers for additional details and data.
