Compact sensor head
The ultra-small design of the sensor head allows it to be installed almost anywhere, even in limited spaces within a machine.
Clearly visible indicator
Large LED clearly indicates the status even when the amplifier is not visible.
Connectable main unit and expansion units
Up to eight amplifiers can be connected with the combination of a main unit and expansion units. This reduces wiring in applications that require multi-point measurements.
Measurement of static charges relies on the distance between the sensor head and the target workpiece. Measurement error can be corrected by entering the installation distance into the amplifier.
Standard specifications include an independent 3-output judgment system and analog voltage/current output. By using a communication unit, data from up to 8 connected units can be transmitted simultaneously. The ability to read data and re-write settings from PCs and PLCs significantly reduces man-hours required for setup and operation.
By measuring the static charge and humidity at the same time, you can more accurately identify whether a particular area is likely to have static-related problems. This helps identify optimal anti-static measures, including humidification and other procedures such as installing an ionizer.
Static electricity and humidity are correlated: when humidity exceeds 60% RH, static charge is less likely to accumulate. Even during the winter, when static charges build up easily due to colder, drier air, static-related problems can be prevented by maintaining a constant level of humidity around target workpieces.
Since humidity changes with temperature, humidity can vary in a room depending on the location. Temperature is generally higher around manufacturing systems, which tends to produce lower relative humidity.
