overhead ionizers

Mounting an ionizer in an electronics production area can be challenging. Ideally, an ionizer will meet the ESD Protected Area’s performance standards while not interfering with normal activity at the workstation. The ionizer should be pointed directly at the target area where ESD susceptible devices are located. The ionizer’s fan speed can be increased to…

Ionization is probably the most misunderstood and under used technology for controlling ESD. There are some cases where ionization would be primary method of controlling ESD in an ESD Protected Area and there are others where it would not even be necessary. The need for ionization largely depends on what and how ESD susceptible devices…

Desco offers a wide product offering of Ionizers: bench top, overhead, and point-of use. Desco products incorporate superior technology providing fast discharge times, and such features as auto balancing feedback controls and “clean me” alarms. The primary function of an ionizer is to neutralize electrostatic charges on insulators and isolated (non-grounded) conductors to reduce the…
