Area ionizer ER-X series
CME-ERX No.0060-02V
Thank you for purchasing Panasonic products.
Read this Instruction Manual carefully and thoroughly for the correct and optimum use of
this product.
Kindly keep this manual in a convenient place for quick reference.
Never use this product as device for personnel protection.
In case of using devices for personnel protection, use products which meet laws or
standards, such as OSHA, ANSI or IEC etc., for personnel protection applicable in
each region or country.
This product produces high voltages.
Do not use this product in places where there may be a danger of flammable or
combustible items being present.
To prevent electric shock and to conduct proper discharge, be sure to ground a frame
ground (F.G.) terminal of a controller.
Do not place hands near the discharge needle. Doing so may cause electric shock.
Since the tip of the discharge needle is sharp, take sufficient care in handling the
discharge needle, or injuries may result.
The high-voltage cable between the head and the high-voltage unit must be fixed and
the minimum bend radius is R30 mm or more.
In case of using at the bend radius R30 mm or less and using at moving part may
cause fire and break down, etc. of the high-voltage cable.
Clean the discharge needle regularly (about once a week). Otherwise, optimum charge
removal performance may not be achieved, and accidents or operating problems may occur.
If this product is used in a confined space, ozone emitted from this product may be
detrimental. Be sure to provide ventilation.
Do not direct ionized air toward the face. Ozone may cause irritation to places such as
the nose and throat.
This product has been developed / produced for industrial use only.
Do not use this product for purposes other than electric charge removal.
Do not use this product in environments which are outside the specification range,
otherwise operating problems or damage may occur. In addition, the operating life of the
product may become significantly reduced.
This product is a precision device. Do not apply a shock to it by dropping, for example.
Accidents or operating problems may occur.
Never disassemble, repair or modify this product. Accidents or operating problems may occur.
Do not throw this product in fire. It may explode or toxic fumes may be generated.
Do not run the wires together with high-voltage lines or power lines or put them in the
same raceway.
This can cause malfunction due to induction.
When connecting/removing the head or performing wiring or inspection work, be
sure to turn off the power first. Not doing so may result in accidents, electric shock or
operating problems.
After connecting the cables, check that the connections are correct before turning on the
power. If the cables are connected incorrectly, operating problems or accidents may occur.
Verify that the supply voltage variation is within the rating.
In case using switching regulator, be sure to connect F.G. terminal.
When using as a CSA and UL compliant product, use a CLASS 2 CSA/UL certified
power supply, or a CSA/UL certified power supply that has been evaluated as a Limited
Power Source as specified in CAN/CSA-C22.2NO.60950-1/UL60950-1.
Do not use a cable with any damage such as cracks or splitting. Risk of accidents and
Avoid use in a location with significant steam or dust, or in a location where the product
may come in direct contact with water, oil, or welding spatter.
Avoid use at an elevation higher than 2000m, and outdoor use.
Do not touch the discharge needle with hard objects such as tools. If the discharge
needle becomes broken, it will not provide sufficient charge removal performance, and
moreover operating problems or accidents may occur.
During installation, fasten the product securely. If it is not securely fastened or it is
subjected to continuous vibration or shock, accidents or operating problems may result.
Power cable that are 0.15mm
or more and 30m or less in total length for wiring.
Also, keep the wiring as short as possible in order to prevent noise.
When disposing of this product, treat it appropriately as industrial waste.
After starting discharge, it takes approximately 30 minutes for charge removal
performance to stabilize. Therefore, wait 30 minutes before adjusting ion balance.
Use the correct combination of head, discharge needle unit and controller.

● After mounting the head, set the controller according
to the procedures in “
SETTING” in order to
appropriately remove static electricity.
Notes: 1) Be sure to ground the equipment housing onto which the head is mounted.
2) The distance between the head and the charge removing object should be 30 mm or more.If the static
buildup of the charge removing object is 30 kV or more, set the distance to 50 mm or more.
3) If there is metal near the head or between the head and the charge removing object, ion is absorbed,
hindering appropriate static removal. Install the head based on the above.
4) In case using the side mounting, the discharge frequency should be 10Hz or more.
