Neutralizing High Electrostatic Charges With HAUG EI DC Ionizing Unit

Neutralizing, High, Electrostatic Charges, HAUG, EI DC, Ionizing UnitThe Ionizing unit EI DC is an excellent choice for use in fast running processes or for neutralizing high electrostatic charges. Due to the direct voltage technology employed, it provides a high discharging output. Its GRP section makes the EI DC torsionally extremely stiff and allows the production of large bar lengths.

Functional Principle

The ionizing units of the DC Line continuously supply positive and negative ions. Due to the direct ion output, the ionizing unit is able to reach a high discharging performance for the neutralization of electrostatic charges.

The use of tungsten pins characterized by a long service life make the EI DC a particularly robust ionizing unit: light contamination of the pin strip has little impact on the effectiveness of the ion output. The EI DC is operated with the discharging power pack EN 1 DC.

Examples Of Application

The high discharging output of the EI DC allows the bar to be used for fast-running processes (material webs up to 400 m/min) or for neutralizing surfaces with high electrostatic charges.

The EI DC has a reach of up to 100 mm. It is therefore particularly suited to mounting situations where it is not possible to approach the surface to be discharged down to 30 mm.

Its high-strength GRP section makes the EI DC torsionally very stiff. Only very few mounting points are needed even for a long ionizing bar for installation in a production system – a T-slot provided at the back of the bar offers much freedom to the installer.

The silicone-sheathed HV cable allows small bending radii to be achieved during installation and is insensitive to shocks and movements – for example in handling systems.

The DC Line is suitable for a total HV cable length of 50 m. In combination with the discharging power pack EN 1 DC which is operated with 24 V direct voltage, an ionization system for highly flexible use is achieved.


The EI DC  is characterized by the following properties:

  • high-strength GRP section with T-slot
  • flexible high-voltage silicone-sheathed cable
  • long-life ionizing pins made of tungsten
  • neutralization of high electrostatic charges
  • long reaches of up to 100 mm
  • use in fast running processes.
