ER-F12 / ER-F12S
Thank you very much for using Panasonic products. Please 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 with a 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.
Do not use this product in places where there may be a danger of � �ammable or
combustible items being present.
Clean the discharge needle regularly (about once every two weeks), otherwise
optimum charge removal performance may not be obtained and � �re or operating
problems may occur.
If this product is used in an airtight room, ozone emitted from this product may be
detrimental. Therefore, in order for this product to be used in an airtight room, be
sure to keep the room ventilated.
Do not direct ionized air toward the face. Ozone may cause irritation to places
such as the nose and throat.
Since the tip of the discharge needle is sharp, take ���� cient care in handling the
discharge needle, or injuries may result.
Be sure to ground the frame ground (F.G.) terminal, otherwise electric charge
removal may not be reliable.
This product is a fan-type charge removal device which uses ion generation from
The device is suitable for a variety of charge removal applications. It is equipped
with a straight louver which is ideal for long-distance charge removal, and an angle
louver which is ideal for wide-range charge removal.
The fan speed can be adjusted to one of four settings.

Be sure to turn off the power before carrying out angle adjustment for this product,
otherwise accidents or problems with operation may occur.
Remove the bracket from the main unit, and then secure it to the installation
Use the holes in the base of the bracket to secure it with screws.
The vertical angle of the product can be freely changed by loosening the two M5
screws. After adjusting the angle, retighten the screws to secure the device so
that the angle will not change. The tightening torque for the M5 screws at this time

This product includes two types of louver as accessories. Select the type of louver to
use based on the charge removal area.
This louver provides excellent direction stability for the air. It is ideal for cases where
rapid charge removal for objects is required, or when the object is some distance away.
This louver is excellent at dispersing the air. It is ideal for charge removal over a wide
Notes: 1) The discharge needle unit is loaded on the straight louver before shipment. To replace it
with the angle louver, refer to the discharge needle unit installation procedure in "
AND MAINTENANCE" in this manual.
2) If no louver is attached, the device will not turn on even when the power is supplied.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Be sure to turn off the power before carrying out cleaning and maintenance.
The discharge needle has a sharp point, so be very careful when cleaning the needle.
If the device is used for a long period, dust and other foreign particles may
accumulate on the discharge needles or on the fan � �lter, and so the needles and
� �lter should be cleaned before use.
If the device is not cleaned regularly, the charge removal performance will drop and
operating problems or accidents may occur. Clean the device regularly, using the
following as a guide.
Discharge needle unit: Every 2 weeks
Fan intake � �lter: Every 2 weeks
The discharge needle is a consumable part. If the discharging performance is not
restored after the discharge needles have been cleaned, it is recommended that
you replace the discharge needle unit. It is recommended that you replace the
discharge needle unit after about 10,000 hours of operation.
Cleaning the discharge needle unit
Check that the power is turned off and that the fan has completely stopped.
Following the removal procedure of the louver, remove the louver from the main
Clean with the discharge needle loaded. Use a cotton swab or similar tools
moistened with alcohol to clean the discharge needles and the areas around them.
If the needles are particularly dirty, use a brush (such as a toothbrush) moistened
with alcohol to rub them clean, and then use a cotton swab to wipe them.
<When using a commercially-available ultrasonic cleaner for cleaning>
Following the removal procedure of the discharge needle unit, remove the
discharge needle unit from the louver, and immerse the discharge needle unit
into the cleaning tank to clean them. After that, dry the discharge needle unit well.
Following the installation procedure, install the discharge needle unit to the louver.
Following the installation procedure, install the louver to the main unit.
