What Is the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon?

EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon neutralises static electricity and cleans at distances up to 4.6m (15 feet) with no moving parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. With an optional pressure regulator, the air volume and velocity are infinitely adjustable over a wide range, for light to heavy duty applications.

The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon will maximise airflow while minimising compressed air consumption. A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume flow of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionised by an emitter point (shockless) and delivered to the charged surface. A hose or tube can be connected to the air intake of the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon to draw quality air from another area.It requires only 0.7 BAR (10 PSIG) for most applications.

The compact design saves bench space and allows mounting in confined areas. The sturdy stand is predrilled and can be bench, wall or machine mounted. It incorporates a swivel adjustment for directing the airflow.

The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon is supplied with a .08mm (.003") slotted air gap which is ideal for most applications. Flow and force can be increased by replacing the shim with a thicker0.15mm (.006") or 0.23mm (.009") shim.

8192-ion-air-cannon Model 8192 Gen4 Ion Air Cannons provide static elimination in between solar panel lenses to assist separation of the lenses during production.
 

How The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon Works

The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon incorporates a Super Air Amplifier* and ionising collar, energised by a power supply. A small amount of compressed air is injected into the barrel of the cannon (1) inducing a high volume flow of surrounding air to flow through it (2). A replaceable emitter point at the discharge end of the cannon (3) ionises the entire airstream. The result is a high volume, conical flow of ionised air (4) capable of eliminating static and cleaning at distances up to 4.6m (15 feet). Because more than 90% of the ionised air is induced, the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon produces maximum airflow at minimum air consumption.

EXAIR Model 7960 or 7961 Gen4 Power Supply Is Required For Ioniser Operation
Selectable Voltage: For use with all Gen4 Static Eliminators

The Two and Four Outlet Gen4 Power Supplies have selectable voltage, which allows you to choose input voltages of 115VAC or 230VAC. The modular cable with electromagnetic shielding protects sensitive electronics against electromagnetic interference while easing connections and routing. An integrated fuse on the primary protects against voltage spikes.

Gen4 Two and Four Outlet Selectable Voltage Power Supplies require an input of 115VAC, 50/60 Hz or 230VAC, 50/60 Hz. A 1.83m (6-foot) modular power cord and lighted power switch are included. Power Supplies are UL Component Recognised to US and Canadian safety standards, and are CE and RoHS compliant.
Advantages:

  • Replaceable rocker switch
  • Durable, stainless steel high voltage connections
  • Selectable voltage 115VAC or 230VAC
  • Electromagnetically shielded modular power cable
  • Fuse protects against voltage spikes
  • Modular power supply cable eases connections and routing
