What is your static control system telling you?

admin Static Solutions

A customer recently commented that a competitors product changes the output of the static bar and you can tell it does that by the lights on the optional controller they sell. This simply isn’t true. Lights do not indicate change, its just a monitoring system that they allude changes by how the bar interacts with the charges present on the web, when if fact their static bars have a fixed output. It might tell you that you are attempting to neutralizing a positive or negative charge along with its rough magnitude, but that’s all the lights indicate.

The Simco-Ion IQ Power system with Control Station and IQ Sensor bar DOES adjust the static bar’s outputs and can be done several ways:

-CLOSED-LOOP FEEDBACK. A Simco IQ Sensor bar is a continuous static measurement device (i.e. static meter) that reads actual charge present on a moving web. When paired with a Simco Static bar through the Simco Control Station and set up in Closed-Loop Feedback mode, the output of the paired bar IS adjusted to null the residual charge actually measured by the static sensor automatically.

-AUTO-TUNE: Using a special mix of firmware and software in the Simco BPS power units and Control Station, when properly set up and dialed in/calibrated with a hand-held static meter, Auto-Tune can adjust the output of the static bar automatically by how the static bar responds to the magnitude of charge present.

-MANUAL: The Simco Control Station allows the output of the static bar, or bars as you can adjust them individually, so that they are skewed in balance to the positive or negative side in 1% increments.

In addition, the Simco Control Station can monitor and individually control up to 10 devices in both standard and hazardous (XP) (Class 1, Div 1, Group D/E) rated areas such as solvent coaters. Simco IQ Bars are available in (3) operating ranges: Speed (2″ – 9″), Hybrid (6″ – 18″) and Distance (12″ – 30″) and also in 24VDC input and air assisted versions for blow-off/long range performance.
