Ion Unveils Electrostatic Charging Generators
Ion Industrial, Windsor Locks, Conn.,
now offers a line of single-polarity-charge generators suitable for chill roll edge pinning on cast
film lines, roll transfer, lamination and other static-charge pinning applications. The generators
feature both constant current and voltage operation options. According to Ion, constant current
provides more consistent pinning power as ambient conditions change, or when ionizing electrodes
are contaminated or there are variations in material properties.
Model 7020 OEM is controlled by a programmable logic controller using an analog input/output
(I/O) connection. Model 7220 is designed with a remote I/O, and with all controls and displays on
the front. The universal output connections of both models are compatible with many brands of
charge applicators. Both models also offer an IP54 protection rating.
