Anti-static bars

Simco-Ion anti-static bars generate an electrical field which causes the air molecules in the vicinity of the bar to break down into positive and negative ions. Because opposite charges attract, any charged material passing near the bar will attract ions until the charge on the material is neutralized. The materials will no longer be attracted to each other or to the machine parts. Attraction of dust, explosion or fire hazards and electrical shocks to personnel caused by static discharge are avoided. Simco-Ion offers a very wide range of antistatic bars in shockless and non-shockless versions. The anti-static bars consist of a series of ionizing emitter points powered by a voltage power unit.
Simco-Ion anti-static bars are also available for applications requiring long range neutralization.

To help you select the right anti-static bar please refer to the table below to compare specific features. (Click to enlarge)

Charging electrodes

Simco-Ion Europe offers a variety of charging bars and electrodes, depending on the specific applications and conditions. These bars are connected to a DC high-voltage generator. A strong, ion-saturated electrical field around the single polarity high voltage points forces the material to a reference earth. The material is charged by the ions. Being attracted by different polarities, the surfaces temporarily cling together. There are various methods of temporarily charging materials electrostatically, using a Simco-Ion Chargemaster system.

Manager IQ Easy

Manager IQ Easy Introducing a new level of static control; the heart of the new IQ Easy platform is the Manager IQ Easy. It comprises of a Control unit with a 7'' LCD touch screen, provides information from all the connected devices and makes it easy to change and monitor status and parameters. Up to 6 IQ devices can be directly connected to the Manager IQ Easy. The 24V DC power distribution is routed via the Manager, so no extra cables! This makes the connection of a device even easier than connection to a single desktop power supply.

The Manager IQ is available in 2 versions:
1) Input voltage 100 - 240V /50-60 Hz This unit converts the input voltage to 24V DC and provides power to all 6 ­connected devices.

2) Input voltage 24V DC
This model needs a 24V power input provided by the user.

Further extension of devices is possible using the Extension IQ Easy. This adds ­another 6 devices to the system with a maximum of 30.

2 ports on each Manager or Extension are available for the connection of ­previous ­(non IQ) Easy products e.g. Performax Easy.

Interfacing:

Communication to machine interfaces is provided. Analogue and digital inputs, ­outputs and several serial fieldbus protocols can be used. Also Ethernet and USB ports are available for many functions.

Pro-Active ionisation control:

Through Simco-Ion’s patented technology of upstream charge evaluation, it is ­possible to fine tune neutralisation of static in combination with a Performax IQ Easy anti-static bar. Adding a Sensor IQ Easy to the system will allow the user to measure the downstream charge on the material. The system can also be perfected further to enhance ­efficiency and allow quality control. Closed loop measuring and adjustment of the static bar output will guarantee an extremely low level of residual charge.

Data logging:

Al device and process parameters are logged in real time and can be made ­visible on the LCD screen or downloaded through the Ethernet interface.

Features:

7” full colour touch screen.
Information is colour coded.
Controls up to 30 devices.
Connection up to 6 devices.
Analogue & digital inputs and outputs.
Serial fieldbus interfaces.
Ethernet interface.USB interface.

The LCD display is beautifully styled and clearly organised giving the ­operator an i­mmediate overview and status of the system. All information is colour coded and ­visible from a long distance.

Blue: The device is operational and running.
Green: The device is operational, but in standby mode.
Orange: Notice, one or more devices need attention e.g. cleaning is required.
Red: Alarm, a device has a fault or parameter has exceeded the alarm level.
Grey: No device is connected.

Static control ready for Industry 4.0

The buzz word in all sectors of the industry is: Industry 4.0. Further automation, networking, cloud and data collection and analyzing are the trends.

Simco-Ion’s IQ Easy platform is fully prepared to fit in and function in this new environment.

What is the need for static control equipment to fit in?

For many years’ static control has been treated as a last resource, as cost factor instead of a benefit. Combining all components into a system that can be controlled by the Manager IQ Easy from one central location suddenly puts static control in another light. It has become a valuable tool for process optimization, quality control and most important, the insurance no material leaves the factory with too much static charge that can cause problems in further process steps. Thus preventing costly customer complaints and rejects.
Integration of the IQ Easy system with the machine control, the companies network and SCADA systems provides an easy platform for data logging and quality reports.

How does the Simco-Ion IQ Easy system fit in?

Up to 32 static control devices within a process can be controlled by one Manager IQ Easy. Warnings and alarms give the operator insight in the status of all devices. Advance notice if an anti-static bar needs cleaning or if any device is not functioning optimally or if any set levels are exceeded provide the opportunity to correct the problem before the process will be influenced.
The Manager IQ Easy is prepared for connection to a fieldbus interface for integration in the machine or process control system. Ethernet and USB connections can be used for data collection.

Implementation:

The example shows a typical value chain. Extrusion of the film material, slitting the film into smaller rolls, printing the film and finally converting it into bags. Instantly it becomes clear that when anywhere in the chain the static levels are too high which results in bags delivered to the customer that do not open, all efforts have gone to waste.
Continuous developments towards reducing film thickness to reduce cost and weight, and increased machine speeds, make films more susceptible to problems with static charge.

The Simco-Ion IQ Easy system will manage each converting process step and ensure very low levels of static charge as a basis for each next step and final delivery of the finished product.

Data can be linked to the SCADA or quality control server to provide a protocol that proves perfect conditions for a high quality end product.

System integration is easy. All devices are plug & play with 24V supply voltage provided by the Manager IQ Easy. Mounting is easy through the standardized, quick release, mounting brackets.
Set up is easy with the intuitive software and 7” touch screen.

Get in touch for an evaluation and demonstration of the IQ Easy system tailored for your application.

Your production process completely under control!

The IQ Easy system is an intelligent static electricity control system.
It will help you to control static electricity through your whole production process and offers you many other advantages.

All the devices in the system are controlled by the Manager IQ Easy, a full colour touch screen, that gives you all the information about the connected devices that you need. You also can find all process parameters on the LCD screen or download them through the Ethernet interface.

The advantages of the IQ Easy system for your production process and for your end-customers are:

- Your end customers expect a very high quality product with very little, or no, static charge. With the IQ Easy system, you will get the lowest possible residual static charge at the end of your production process.
- Production failures and production stops will be reduced.
- Quality assurance: you can find back all data and action logs. When you get customer complaints you can prove what the residual charge was on your end product.
- An advantage of the IQ devices instead of the classic static devices is that you will get a warning when there is something wrong with a device so that you can intervene on time.  The warnings and alarms will give you the change to plan the maintenance or replacing of equipment before full break down. So no surprise machine stops due to defective static control equipment anymore!
- The IQ Easy system will provide optimum settings for the devices to ensure maximum neutralisation efficiency.
- 4 years warranty on all 24V products 

The following products can be connected to the IQ Easy system:

Extension IQ Easy

The IQ Easy platform can be extended with the Extension IQ Easy to control an additional 6 devices on top of the in total 30 devices that already can be controlled by the Manager IQ Easy.

Sensor IQ Easy

By adding a Sensor IQ Easy to the IQ Easy platform, the electrostatic charge can be measured over the entire material web. All data of each sensor element is communicated to the Manager IQ Easy and stored for process monitoring. Anti-static bars in the system receive a closed loop feedback from the Sensor which makes it possible to control the static charge level on the web in real time.

IQ Easy Anti-static bars

When IQ anti-static bars are connected to the IQ Easy system they will ensure a very high efficiency of static neutralisation.

IQ Easy static bonding devices

There are charging generators and charging bars available to connect to your IQ Easy system.
