Accompanying our electrostatic systems we have various types of measuring instruments, especially to monitor the operation of the ionizing bars and power supplies and to measure the electrostatic field strength before and after treatment.
Available measuring instruments
HAUG offers various types of instrumentation to measure electrostatic charges and verify the proper functioning of power supplies and discharge bars.
is the simplest portable instrument for measuring electrostatic field strength (KVolt/meter). It can measure up to 1000KV/m and is powered by a 9V battery. The instrument is analog with center zero to allow measurement of positive (right) and negative (left) charges. Measurement distance from the material: 20mm.
Static Meter I
This instrument is used to measure the electrostatic field voltage (Volts). It is small in size and extremely accurate thanks to its digital display. It is powered by a 9V battery, and comes in a handy case with all accessories. The sensor is equipped with a rotating element to equalize the electric field reading.
Ac voltmeter (code 12.7232.000)
This instrument is used to measure the output voltage of discharge power supplies (up to 10KVolt ac). It should be installed between the output of the power supply and the discharge bar, so the value of the correct output voltage of the power supply can be monitored.
It is an instrument with high-precision digital readout. It can measure electrostatic field strength up to 2000Kvolts/meter. It is powered either by electricity (230V) or rechargeable batteries. The measurement probe is connected to the instrument with a coiled cable. This instrument has an output so that it can be connected to a recorder. With its convenient handle, it is the ideal instrument for both laboratory and on-site measurements.
Electrostatics studies stationary electric fields, that is, generated by static charges arranged on dielectric surfaces.
One can eliminate the unwanted charge or one can generate a charge.
It is equivalent to the elimination of electrostatic charge. A bar produces ions that remove charges on the surface.
The most typical case is to make one surface adhere to another, making a kind of electrostatic “bonding.”
Yes, a discharge (ionizing) bar generates ions while a charge bar generates a stationary electric field.
No, since the charges on a dielectric are stationary it is necessary to discharge both faces of the film via two opposing bars.
This is a very good solution to REDUCE the charge, but if you need to ELIMINATE the charge you must use an ionizing bar.
20-30 mm. However, with the help of appropriate compressed or ventilated air systems, it is possible to reach 500 mm and more.
Discharge (ionizing) bars are safe to the touch and do not give any problems (excluding special reported cases). The charge bars, on the other hand, should not be touched during operation; in fact, they should be shielded.
Numerous electrostatic charge measurement systems are available in the catalog, but generally the result is seen immediately after treatment.
