If you are dealing with static charge, then there is usually a need to know how high that charge is and which polarity it has.
Measuring instruments can help you to make the invisible phenomenon static charge visible.
When is it useful to measure static charge?
- For locating the source of static charge
- After a neutralisation system to measure the effectiveness or to actively control the ionisation
- As quality control to give a guarantee to your customer
- As control after a static charger
How can you measure static charge?
There are 2 ways:
- Manually with a static locator FMX-004
- Automatic with the Sensor IQ Easy
In order to determine if and where there is a static charge, an electrostatic fieldmeter FMX-004 can be used. Herewith the electric field strength can be measured at a set distance without contact.
The Sensor IQ Easy offers even more options.
It delivers measurement values to devices in an IQ Easy system so that they can be actively regulated depending on the measured values. Furthermore, the measured values can be logged via the Manager IQ Easy for further evaluation. This gives you a unique tool to control your process and capture process parameters for quality control.
How do static meters look like
The Simco-Ion Static meters come in different shapes and lenghts, all using dedicated electrical field sensors in one or more configuration. The compact handheld meter, the FMX-004 is the most common used electrostatic fieldmeter used for measuring static electricity. The rugged tool is standard tooling for many operators and is available in many production factories worldwide. The FMX-004 is also used by students to measure objects in laboratory environments. In production lines the IQ Easy Static Sensor Bar is used in many different lenghts up to 4 meters in length.
