SMC Pneumatics claims to have solved static elimination applications with the introduction of the IZS30 series ioniser.
The Spider is a remote monitoring, control and alarm system.
Directional control valves for pneumatic safety applications in five port two position sliding spool type with static seals, mounted on a safety manifold configured for three port two position operation. Each valve incorporates a two-pole positive driven plunger type switch with positive opening contact. The two models offered have certification to meet Australian & European machinery safety standards.
When it comes to safety in manufacturing operations, the theory tends to be "better the devil you know". This can sometimes spawn over-engineered solutions, based on older, but proven technologies
