High voltage electrostatic generators, like the Simco CM5 charging generator, create a controlled static charge up to 60kV on a non-conductive material that will allow a temporary adhesion between 2 surface s with charges of opposite polarity. A high DC voltage (up to 60kV) can be safely produced and is carried by a high-voltage cable to the emitters of a charging applicator, charging electrode or charging bar, where it is connected to an array of suitably designed emitter pins to generate a “corona”. A strong, ion-saturated electrical field around the single polarity high voltage points forces the material to a reference earth clinging the different surfaces together.
To choose the right generator you need to choose between a large variety of high-voltage generators. The choice is mostly based on the space that you have available and the Voltage (power) that is needed to get the job done.
Charging applicators are the extensions of the static charging generators to reach the material. With the charging applicator a high-Voltage field can be applied to the material. Charging Applicators come in different shapes. All have points to where the Corona effect needs to be generated. There are single point applicators like pinner-electrodes. Also there are bar-shaped charging applicators. These can be mounted inside machines for continuous charging or switched charging of material that is processed inside the machine.
The CM Tiny is the smallest industrial charging high voltage static generator for static electricity applications like static bonding, static cling or static used to glue materials together. The kV generator has fully integrated high voltage parts and only needs a 24V DC voltage powersupply. The housing is compact, robust and only weighs 500 grams which makes it perfect for small machines and applications with moving parts like for instance pick and place handling systems. It can easily withstand the high G-forces occurring during the process. The End-of-Arm-Tool can easily be used and configured and comes with a 4 year warrantee.
The CM Lite is the mid-sized industrial charging high voltage static generator for static electricity applications like static bonding, static cling or static used to glue materials together. The 20kV generator has fully integrated high voltage parts and only needs a 220V AC Voltage powersupply. The housing is compact and industrially robust and weighs 5,2 kilogram. A compact high voltage supply with an adjustable output voltage(both positive and negative) of 0 – 20 kV (with a maximum current of 0,7 mA) clearly shown on the digital display. State-of-the art electronics are employed with a remote control option. The power supply is available with a positive or negative output voltage. A warning lamp lights up if the system is overloaded or in the event of spark-over.
CM5 is fully backwards compatible with ECM30/60 and ECM DI30/60. For basic users a quick set-up menu is provided to set-up the generator to function as an ECM30/60. The Menu is available in English, German, French and Italian.
The new standard function Current Control will enable you to set a constant current vs a constant voltage. This will provide a much more stable charging and will compensate contamination and emitter pin wear automatically.
