Installation Fast Facts: The SL-1104 is an overhead unit designed to provide ideal coverage for control of electrostatics. Note: Do not insert objects into air intake or outlet grille and do not operate the SL-1104 in inflammable or explosive environments. The SL-1104 ionizer should be affixed 24 to 54 inches above the work surface with center targeted directly over work area. This unit may also be positioned and operated vertically should conditions dictate. Avoid drafty locations such as that caused by air conditioning, heater outlets, etc.
Attachment to overhead supports: Mounting to ceilings and shelves; S hooks and chains may be used for mounting the ionizer to structurally sound ceilings or wire shelves. Chains and mounting hardware should have a minimum safe working load of at least 50 pounds. When mounting the unit to ceilings it's important to check state and local codes to insure compliance. The units are typically hung in the same fashion as overhead light fixtures (independently attached to overhead building superstructure). Attaching to suspended ceilings only are typically not compliant with local codes. Mounting to workbench overhead supports; The SL-1104 may be mounted to work bench overhead shelves and beams using the adjustable mounting brackets included with your order.
SL-1104 Overhead ESD Ionizer
Electrical Requirements: The SL-1104 requires 110VAC /60Hz (standard) or 220VAC / 50Hz (optional) power. These units must be grounded. Each unit is supplied with standard US 3 prong male grounded power plug (standard). Do not modify the plug or use an ungrounded 3 prong receptacle. If an extension cord is required use heavy gauge fully grounded cords only.
Operating Procedure: Activate the SL-1104 overhead ionizing blower by turning fan speed knob clockwise. The ionization indicator will illuminate and indicate the presence of ionized air. Airflow speed can easily be adjusted from 0% to 100% output utilizing the fan speed knob. The time required to neutralize electrostatic potential is dependant on distance of ionizer to work surface and speed of fans. When used in electronic assembly the ionized air stream should cover as much of the working area as possible. The constant flow of ionized air prevents items from developing an electrostatic potential and neutralizes electrostatic charges present on objects introduced to the airflow.
Routine Maintenance: Clean emitters as needed (usually every two weeks in heavy service). To clean ion emitter points press and turn point cleaner knob (located at each air outlet) clockwise approximately one turn and release. Clean air inlet and outlets as needed with a soft brush or vacuum. Periodically test ion output as indicated by your internal esd program or ANSI/ESD S 20.20-2007, TR53, Air Ionizer Compliance Verification (discharge time and offset voltage). Offset voltages of >+/- 50 volts or decay times that exceed user defined specifications (typically <1.1 sec @ 60%rH and 68 deg F. with ionizer positioned 24" from work surface) may indicate the need for replacement of emitters. Normal emitter life is 3 years, replacement emitters are easy to install and available from United SCP.
