Hello, in this video I will be showing how to replace the High Power Emitter cord on the EXAIR Gen4 Ion Air Cannon. If you have questions about this process or the parts needed to replace this cord please contact any one of our Application Engineers.
- 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
EXAIR uses many different methods to connect with our customers. We have our website, social media, blogs, publications etc. We like to share solutions for some of the most common pneumatic problems in the industry. EXAIR generated a large collection of application information where EXAIR products have already solved problems and improved processes. We organized them by Application and by Industry. In this blog, I will show you how to use the Application database; specifically, for Static Elimination.
As the weather gets colder and the air gets dryer, static electricity can become a real nuisance in a production plant. Machines will start jamming, alignments will be difficult, debris will collect on surfaces, and hazardous sparks can shock staff. EXAIR manufactures a large line of Gen4 Static Eliminators to remove this static nuisance. We collected these key solutions in an Application Library.
Here is how you can find this library. First, you will have to sign into EXAIR. Click here: Log In. Once you fill in the proper information, you can then retrieve a great number of resources about EXAIR products that we manufacture. The Applications are under the Resource tab. (Reference photo below).
In the Application library, we have over one thousand applications that we reference. In the left selection pane, we organized them under two categories, Applications and Industry. (Reference photo below).
Scroll down in the “Application” selection pane until you come to the sub-category: Static Elimination. (You may have to click on the “Expand” to see more categories). You will find many applications in which EXAIR has already helped to improve processes by removing static, and it is documented.
Why is this important? If you are a plant manager or owner, the value of the Application Database can improve your current processes with pre-qualified results. Within the Static Elimination Application Database, simple solutions can be found to address those “nagging” issues that you see every day. For crisis situations and shutdowns, EXAIR categorized these applications in a way to reference quickly and easily. And since EXAIR stocks our solutions, we can get these parts to you very fast.
In today’s market, companies are always looking for ways to cut cost, increase productivity, and improve safety. EXAIR can offer engineered products to do exactly that. With the “been there and done that” solutions already described in the Application Database; you can have confidence you will find a way to solve your static issues. If you do not sign up at http://www.EXAIR.com and take advantage of these offerings, you will be missing out on a great tool to optimize your compressed air system.
