DESCRIPTION
The Linear Ion Bar Systems have been designed to
effectively eliminate localized static charges which exist
in the work area.
UNPACKING AND INSPECTION
Your controller and bars were carefully packed at the
factory in a container designed to protect it from
accidental damage. Nevertheless, we recommend
careful examination of the carton and contents for any
damage. If damage is evident do not destroy the carton
or packing material. Immediately notify the carrier of a
possible damage claim. Shipping claims must be made
by the consignee to the delivering carrier.
The Non-Air Ion Bars are available in several sizes.
There are 4 Controller options, and several accessory
items. See the following table for the list of available
item numbers.
For more information on the Ion Bar sizes and
dimensions, see page 2.
INSTALLATION
I. Install the controller console on or near the target
area. It must be close enough to connect to the
Ion Bar.
II. Locate and attach the Ion Bar in a position so that
the air ions are directed toward the target area.
III. Connect the Ion Bar to back of controller console.
IV. Plug the console unit into an appropriate electrical
outlet.
NOTES:
1. One SPI controller will power up to 40 emitters. It is
possible to daisy-chain bars together as long as the total
number of emitters does not exceed 40.
2. To permit the power supply console unit to supply
more than 1 Ion Bar you must obtain and attach a 94250
to one connector for two bars.

HOW TO USE THE CONTROLLER
There are two adjustments that can be made on the
controller: BALANCE and RATE.
The BALANCE of positive and negative ion output can
be adjusted to increase polarity bias by turning the
BALANCE CONTROL, slowly turning CLOCKWISE to
increase positive and decrease negative ON time
pulses, OR COUNTER-CLOCKWISE to increase
negative and decrease positive ON time pulses. The
RATE or pulse frequency can be adjusted down to one
pulse per second or up to 5 pulses per second by
SLOWLY TURNING THE RATE CONTROL clockwise
to increase and counter clockwise to decrease the
frequency.

NOTE: Contact manufacturer for special dimensions
REMEMBER:
It is important to verify calibration after any adjustments
and before using your ionizer around sensitive
electronics. Merely repeat above Balance Verification
steps after all adjustments.
IMPORTANT:
Your IONIZER has been designed to minimize effects of
localized static charges. If your processing involves
generation of considerable static charges you may
need more aggressive equipment. SPI has available a
complete line of ionizers; bench top, overhead and hand
ion guns to meet all ionizing requirements.

DISCHARGE TIMES
Measurements are taken with a charged plate monitor
below two consecutive emitters.
Pulsing rate is adjustable from 1 to 20 Hz. This will need
to be customized depending on application requirement
Note:
This data applies to all sizes of the non-air SPI ion bars,
and is intended to be used as a reference.
Values will vary with environment and particular
application settings.
