Charging Generator suits pressroom and bindery operations.

Press Release Summary:

With microprocessor-based 30 kV 5 mA dc power supply, Model 7305 Charging Generator provides timed charge action, output level alarms, remote output control, and 3 modes of output control. High-performance 7430 charging bars with tungsten electrodes help achieve high charging currents, while electrode resistors help prevent formation of high-voltage arcs. All internal components are encapsulated in special fiber-reinforced resin body.

New Electrostatic Charging Generator for Pressroom and Bindery Applications

New charging equipment offers greater pinning power for a variety of demanding applications in pressroom and bindery.

(Windsor Locks, Conn.) The new charging systems from MKS, Ion Industrial and Tantec Static Control are specifically designed for the demands of pressroom and bindery operations, including subscription card tacking, magazine tacking on incline stackers, including UV coated magazines, ribbon tacking, and for chill-roll tacking to eliminate condensate build-up on a chill roll.

Operating versatility is provided by the 7305 Charging Generator, a microprocessor-based, 30 kilovolt, 5 milliampere DC power supply available in three output versions: negative, positive or dual-polarity. This fully-programmable generator can provide timed charge action, output level alarms, remote output control, and three modes of output control.

Special high-performance 7430 charging bars feature long-lasting, tungsten electrodes in a unique spacing configuration to achieve charging currents 20 percent higher than industry-standard bars. Special electrode resistors help prevent formation of high-voltage arcs. All internal components are encapsulated in a special fiber-reinforced resin body. Mounting holes, located on a structural rib along the back of the bar, allow using metal hardware for simplified retrofitting into existing machines. The 7305 Charging Generator is well suited to handle multi-bar 7430 Matrix Chargers for most demanding applications.
