And, it practically eliminates any downtime; you can test your monitor in less than five minutes on the shop floor of your workstation! All you have to do is select the resistance value on the knob, and turn the switch to test each limit.

Check out its settings:

  • Low: 1.5M

Posted on by Kathy S. in New Products Leave a comment

Kasuga Benchtop Ionizer with Cleaning BrushDon’t think twice about installing the new Kasuga benchtop ionizer with cleaning brush; it’s got double the discharging electrode needles as conventional units for ionization that’s twice as fast. Its eight, solid tungsten emitters reduce ion recombination and broaden the ionization coverage area, so you can neutralize electrostatic charges on insulators and ungrounded conductors in a wide, 12” x 48” area.

You’ll save time on maintenance, too. With the built-in cleaning brush, all you have to do is turn the knob to dislodge contaminants.

And, the KD-750B is easy to use. Its intuitive front panel displays the unit’s operating status. Visual and audible alarms let you know when cleaning is needed or if the fan is not working properly.

In fact, because this Kasuga ionizer exceeds the required limits of ANSI/ESD S20.20 and ESD TR53, the reasons to try it are actually more than twofold.
