The AD-1683 Static Eliminator from A&D Weighing is used to eliminate static electricity, protecting your electronic balance from electric shock. This DC powered device does not require an external high-voltage power source in order to eliminate static electricity from charged objects. We recommend using the static eliminator with any high cost balance because it doesn't require any high voltage wiring, and offers a compact size that is light in weight and easy to handle.
AD1683 static eliminator, which incorporates a high-voltage power source, is a DC power-operated small-size device which can eliminate static electricity from charged objects without the need of an external high-voltage power source. Since this static eliminator is compact and lightweight with no fan (no breeze is produced) and requires no high-voltage wiring, it is very easy to handle. Being of a DC type, it has a remarkable ability for generating ions.
Can be easily and safely installed because they require no high-voltage wiring.
Being of a DC type, this static eliminator has a remarkable ability for generating ions and can be used for elimination of static charges from quickly running or highly electrified work pieces.
Little or no reverse charge is induced by irradiated ions because of its excellent ion polarity balance.
Achieves static elimination with a high degree of efficiency regardless of the polarity or the potential of the charged object.
Suited for static elimination in narrow and remote places because of its lengthy ion irradiation distance.
Produces only a little amount of ozone thanks to its high ion generation efficiency.
A current limiting circuit is incorporated in the ion generating electrode to reduce the possibility of electric shock
Being of a DC type, this static eliminator, unlike PULSE-DC, involves no swing in surface potential of the charged object.
The AD-1683 generates bipolar ions continuously by DC corona discharge separately from positive and negative discharge electrodes and directs the ionized air onto the charged body to eliminate static electricity. The generated ions are well-balanced in polarity and can eliminate static electricity regardless of the polarity of the charged body. (See Figure 3.)
Generally, insulators such as plastics are prone to be charged with static electricity when the ambient relative humidity is below 45% RH. This may affect weighing and cause a measurement error of several milligrams.
The AD-1683 can eliminate static electricity very effectively.
*Note: Please confirm that the AC adapter type is correct for your local voltage and receptacle type. To prevent electrical shock, insert the POWER cable into a grounding outlet and earth ground the grounding cable.
How to install AD-1683: Choose the installation site so that the AD-1683 can be placed beside the electronic balance and a space wide enough to place sample (10cm to 30cm from the front of the AD-1683) can be secured. Place the sample in front of the AD-1683 inside the specified area and perform static elimination. Then, weigh the sample using the electronic balance.
