Electrostatic charging generators offer both ‘constant current’ and ‘constant voltage’

A new line of single-polarity charge generators from Ion Industrial feature the choice of ‘constant current’ or ‘constant voltage’ operation.

They are suitable for a broad range of static charge pinning applications, including card insertions, chill roll edge pinning on cast film lines, in-mold labeling (IML), roll transfer, lamination, shrink wrapping, plastic bag manufacturing and many other processes. They are available from Bondline Static Control Solutions.

While ‘constant voltage’ has been a standard mode for most other generators, the ‘constant current’ feature provides more consistent pinning power regardless of changes in ambient conditions or contamination of ionising electrodes or variations in the material's properties.

Ion's line of new charging products also includes a small-profile, lightweight charging bar with tungsten ionising electrodes.

The new 7020 OEM generator is a fully-integrated ‘black box’ controllable by a PLC using an analogue I/O connection.

The 7220 generator, in addition to the remote I/O, provides all controls and displays on the front of the unit for ease of monitoring or operator adjustments.

Both systems use universal output connections compatible with many makes of charge applicators.

An IP54 protection rating is standard on both generator models.
