Testing. Everytime the unit is turned on it conducts a self-test to confirm balance and output compliance. Input Power. The input AC Line Power operates at 100 VAC at 50/60 Hz. Ion Emission. The unit utilizes inherently balanced A/C Corona Technology.
AC Corona Ionization
AC Corona Ionization. When an AC ionizer is used high voltage is applied to a single emitter point that cycles between negative and positive at line frequency (50/60 Hz). Since the cycles are so fast, there is a high level of recombination of ions.
When should I use an AC Air Ionizer?
AC corona ionization is most appropriately used in industrial applications where the ionizer can be placed close to the charged objects and cleanliness is not required.
How does ESD Air Ionization Work?
When AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current) is applied to a sharp emitter point it creates an electric field or “corona” around the emitter. This high voltage corona of ions then interacts with electrons in the nearby gas molecules “cleaning” the air of unwanted charged air molecules.
ESD Air ionizers are used to remove static electric charges from the surfaces of ungrounded objects. (Keep in mind, you can use anti static mats to ground table tops and standing surfaces.) However, if you need to make sure static is not building up on your workstations consider using ESD air ionization.
