27 August 2019: Leading static control specialist Fraser Anti-Static Techniques has announced UL certification for its popular range of 30 kV and IML 20 kV IONFIX Compact static generators.
Since being launched a few years ago, the IONFIX Compact has become a world-leader in the creation of static electricity to enhance the efficiency of manufacturing and production processes. The feature-rich product supplies high voltage power to charging electrodes to provide temporary adhesion between materials in industrial applications such as bagmaking, pinning, packaging, bindery and in-mould labelling (IML). With a variety of compatible accessories available to meet the demands of each job, the IONFIX Compact is also suitable for product charging and material separation.
Fraser Anti-Static Techniques CEO, Bruce Clothier, said: “It is vital that our customers have confidence in our products, and UL certification was the obvious next step for the IONFIX Compact.
“Formal certification will provide OEMs and manufacturers worldwide with the assurance that models in the IONFIX Compact range are compliant with the requirements of the UL standard with respect to their potential risk of fire, electric shock and mechanical hazards.
“Widely used in organisations across the globe, this product has proven safe and effective - not only in ensuring efficient production but also in keeping operators completely safe in their working environment.”
With AC and DC variants, the IONFIX Compact delivers a full 20 W of power from 20 kV up to 30 kV. With both positive and negative polarities available, the small yet robust IONFIX Compact has built-in protection against overload, short-circuit, sparking and miswiring alongside multiple levels of safety circuitry. In addition to offering full remote control, it has a clear and simple user interface that gives the operator complete control over voltage and current output, as well as precise running and fault analysis.
In addition to the new IEC CB Certificate DK-94020-UL, the IONFIX Compact is CE certified and meets the standards of the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU and EMC Directive 2014/30/EU.
Fraser is leading product development in electrostatic control technology.
