WHEN the natural build up of static electricity causes production line or machine function problems, its early detection and eradication can often be the difference between success and failure.
Today, engineers and production staff can now simply check the electrostatic potential of an object and establish an immediate reading thanks to the new handheld electrostatic sensor Series IZH10 from SMC Pneumatics.
Powered by two standard AA batteries, the lightweight IZH10 is extremely portable and its sensor and separate compact display unit can be used in even the tightest of spaces.
Being both precise and accurate the IZH10 can effectively measure electrostatic potential in various situations and, as an example, a charge potential of ±20kV can be detected in a circular areas with a diameter of only 180mm at a distance of 50mm.
When used in continuous mode, the sensor and display can also operate for over 15 hours before its low battery warning light confirms that replacement batteries are required.
