The new bar type ionizer range from SMC features a separate controller to meet growing customer demand for a compact design where space is at a premium.
The IZT Series is available in three models – 40/41/42 – that prevent electrostatic breakdown of electric parts, allowing for safer manufacturing processes, as well as reducing production faults and derivative non-quality costs associated with faulty products.
Now that the bar is a stand-alone unit, it can be mounted in restricted spaces, with up to four being connected to one controller. This not only makes the ionizer easy to monitor and adjust, but the space required to house the controller is reduced while reducing installation time.
As the IZT features self-diagnosis functions and LED display, the operation of the ionizer can be effectively monitored allowing any contamination of the emitter to be detected, further enhancing efficiency.
A spokesperson from SMC said: "We have responded to customer demand for a compact ionizer that is small in size, but big in terms of ability. The IZT Series delivers on every level and because the ions are discharged by compressed air, the electrostatic removal distance is extended, improving both production speed and output. It is suitable for a wide range of industries, including semi-conductor production and high-performance film production."
The IZT is available with two types of low maintenance electrode cartridges, energy saving or high speed, delivering additional flexibility and choice for different applications. Both types are removable and replaceable for easier maintenance. With a flexible layout, offering bar length variations of 160 mm to 2500 mm, selectable air supply of right, left or both sides, and a choice of brackets, the IZT stands out for its versatility.
