Meech International (Witney, UK) has been developing electrostatic systems for the printing, packaging and plastics industries for over 20 years. Now the company announces the latest addition to its successful and innovative Hyperion series – the 233v4 DC power supply. The 233v4 is suitable for use in a wide range of applications and is a compact and powerful device that controls the ionisation power.

“Uncontrolled statics is one of the most common reasons for poor productivity in many areas, but it remains an issue that is often overlooked,” says David Rogers, technical director at Meech International. “As a pioneer in the industrial use of DC technology, Meech is proud to develop innovative products such as the Hyperion series that counteract static charges in production lines.”

“For electrostatic systems, a discharge bar is the key component – but the power supply determines their performance and efficiency,” Rogers continues. “As an upgrade for the current 233v3 and 997CM DC power supplies, the 233v4 offers ultimate discharge flexibility. With Meech monitoring technology and a maximum output voltage of 15kV, it is the most powerful power supply in the Hyperion series.”

Meech’s ICM monitoring technology monitors the performance of the unloading units. This is supported by integrated LED status indicators that warn the operator when the connected unit needs cleaning. This avoids unscheduled interruptions and the machine works efficiently. The output voltage, frequency and polarity can be adjusted with the Hyperion BarMaster programmer. This ensures that the system operates at the most efficient level depending on the application.

The 233v4 is supplied with 24 V DC via an industrial M8 standard connector and is therefore easy to set up and install. The double output allows simultaneous control of two discharge units. With IP67 protection, the 233v4 power supply is not susceptible to dust, water and other contaminants, contributing to consistent performance.
