Pulse AC Method Area Ionizer ER-X

High-Speed, Airless Charge Removal


UL , CE , CSA , UKCA Approved
UL, CSA : Certified by TÜV SÜD America Inc.


"Fast Charge Removal", "Airless", "Low-Pressure". Three charge removal modes for diverse application coverage

The ER-X series offers an airless charge removal capability to eliminate the need for compressed air in addition to low pressure and high speed compressed air based modes. Furthermore, it supports dual-head configurations for expanded application coverage.

Massive ion discharge when using air reduces charge removal time

By applying a compressed air source, the ion volume increases providing an improved tact time for substrate ionization. This makes the ER-X suitable for applications such as electronic paper and thin film solar cells, where charge removal time is directly linked to productivity.

Prevents dust dispersion and cleanliness degradation!

The ER-X series can effectively remove surface charges with an air pressure of less than 0.05 MPa. With the advantage of minimal dust dispersion, it is suitable for charge removal in semiconductor, FPD (mobile panel), and other applications that require high degree of cleanliness. The presence of air also helps prevent adhesion of dust to the discharge needles, requiring less cleaning than in the airless charge removal mode.

Pulse AC method for faster charge removal

The ER-X series has adopted the pulse AC method that alternately applies positive and negative voltages to each discharge needle. This enables generation and discharge of a large amount of ions, resulting in faster charge removal. Select from eight pulse frequencies according to your application, from 100 Hz for charge removal on nearby or moving workpieces to 1 Hz for charge removal on far-away workpieces or in a threedimensional space.

Pulse AC method for faster charge removal

Automatic ion balance control

The ER-X series provides an automatic ion balance control mechanism that senses the amount of ions being generated (which changes according to environmental factors) and compensate for this deviation in the controller, thus maintaining a highly stable ion balance as an original operator setting.

0.3 sec. or less*1 fastest charge removal achieved with pulse AC method spot type ionizer*2

The pulse AC method enables the ER-X001 to generate and discharge a large amount of ions, which makes charge removal faster. Furthermore, as a spot type ionizer, it achieves the fastest charge removal of 0.3 sec.
or less*1 (±1,000 V → ±100 V).

High and low temperature resistant type also available

Bar type head compatible with ambient temperatures of -60 to +200 ℃ -76 to +392 ℉ is available.

High and low temperature resistant type also available

Super-compact slim head

By thoroughly redesigning the discharge needle, we have created a super-compact slim head that combines high-speed charge removal*1 with a maintenance-saving design*2. The ER-X series can be embedded in, or retrofitted onto, equipment that did not provide enough space for antistatic measures in the past.

*2 : Discharge needle air barrier structure, discharge needle unit for simple need replacement

Super-compact slim head

Flat discharge surface for easy cleaning

The ER-X series heads have a flat discharge face, allowing effortless cleaning of the discharge needles and air outlets by simply brushing along the groove provided.

Flat discharge surface for easy cleaning

Discharge needle air barrier design for reduced contamination

A barrier of clean air around the discharge needle keeps foreign matter from adhering to it, preventing degraded performance.
Additionally, by using separate air sources for the discharge needle barrier and ion transport, the ER-X series keeps discharge from becoming unstable due to pressure concentration, allowing the device to efficiently generate and transport ions.

Discharge needle air barrier design for reduced contamination

Carefully designed to prevent contamination in manufacturing processes

In consideration of the manufacturing process (secondary cells etc.), the ER-X series heads neither use copper nor plate processing. This minimizes the risk of contamination with foreign substances.

Discharge needle unit for simple needle replacement

The removable discharge needle unit (including a set of four needles) substantially simplifies maintenance. To remove the unit, just slide it toward both ends as indicated by the arrows.


Dual head configuration for enhanced charge area and layout expansion

  • Different heads can be combined.
    *The new-type controller, ER-XC02, allows simultaneous connection of the bar type head and spot type head.
  • Charge removal is possible with a layout that places heads on either side of the workpiece.
  • The charge removal efficiency can be increased by synchronizing the two heads.

Dual head configuration for enhanced charge area and layout expansion

Equipped with charging function

The charging function is useful when charging paper or parts for static electricity adsorption transport.
1) Head 2 performs the ordinary charge neutralizing operation.
2) The ER-X001 cannot use the charging function.(Discharge operation stops.)
