Simco-Ion ISO Class 1 High Performance Digital Ionizing Bar scorpION3

Simco-Ion’s scorpION3 Ionizing Bar is designed to meet today’s requirements for cleanliness and performance for the semiconductor front-end, semiconductor back-end, and general electronics markets. It’s unique combination of available air assist, “Peak-reduction” technology, numerous emitter point materials and lengths make it suitable for a wide range of applications. It can be used to reduce charge on surfaces to minimize ESD events, as well as to reduce airborne particle contamination landing on product surfaces during manufacturing.

The scorpION3 is available with three different emitter point materials, including single-crystal silicon (the standard for the semiconductor industry for its cleanliness), silicon carbide (useful in specific environments where airborne molecular contaminants are present), and tungsten (for general purposes where ISO Class 1 cleanliness is not required).

  • Air assist versions
  • “Peak-reduction” technology
  • Daisy-chain feature with “master/slave” capability
  • Power supply included
