Simco-Ion is the world’s largest manufacturer of static control equipment, providing solutions for our leading manufacturer’s electrostatic needs since 1936. With colder weather approaching, we can expect an increase in static charges. Increased charges in a manufacturing process can cause product defects, costly downtime and be an operator safety concern. Simco-Ion offers devices to locate, monitor and control static charges.
The Simco FMX-004 Electrostatic Fieldmeter is a portable hand-held device used for measuring static charges. Its lightweight and compact design makes it convenient and easy to use. The FMX-004 measures both positive and negative polarity charges up to ±30 kV (30,000V) at a distance of 1”. Two LED guide lights help position the FMX-004 at the right distance from a charged surface. The IQ Easy Sensor Bar is an active multi-point sensor bar that offers real-time monitoring of a static neutralizing or charging application. When paired with an IQ Easy Static Neutralizing Bar, it creates a true closed-loop static solution to ensure you are receiving the lowest possible residual charge.
This same monitoring capability is available in areas classified as hazardous locations with the IQ Power HL Sensor Bar.
