Posted on by Michelle R. in All-Spec News, ESD News, Static Control Tips and Tricks Leave a comment

When it comes to benchtop ionization, Simco-Ion is the clear choice for many. The brand’s popular PC Personal Bench Ionizer and Aerostat XC Extended Ionizer Blower are each great options, both inherently balanced to 0 ± -5V with a patented emitter point cleaner and lifetime emitter points. But when it comes to localized coverage, which ionizer is best?

More compact and lightweight, the PC Personal Bench Ionizer offers slightly less extensive coverage of 1’x5’ for a targeted work zone. The Aerostat XC Extended Ionizer Blower is designed for wider 3’x6’ coverage with an integrated heater for operator comfort.
