Exair’s newly released patented Intellistat Ion Air Gun is a handheld and lightweight solution to static elimination in clean processes or sensitive assembly work, such as scientific and electronic test facilities, laboratories, and clean rooms.

The Intellistat is designed to consume minimal compressed air while simultaneously delivering precise blow-off and static decay rates capable of reducing 1000 volts to less than 100 in less than a second, at up to 24 inches (610mm) away.

The Intellistat is activated with a comfortable, ergonomic short throw, which requires minimal effort.

Constructed with a low voltage transformer converting 120V to 24V, it was designed to ensure user safety, in addition to using an Exair engineered air nozzle to maximise efficiency and meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for sound level and dead-end pressure.

It is equipped with a red/green LED to signify proper functionality, as well as a hook for easy hanging and storage.

Made from durable static dissipative polycarbonate, the Intellistat also assures its usefulness in applications requiring non-conductivity, such as circuit board, electronics manufacturing, or testing.

Available from Compressed Air Australia, the Intellistat is a low maintenance solution that is UL Listed and CE compliant, providing a great addition to Exair’s entire Gen4 static eliminator product line, including Super Ion Air Knives, Ion Air Cannons, Ion Air Guns, Ionising Bars and Ionising Points.
