Most modern industrial static eliminators are powered by means of a standard M12 cable connector. Usually the 24Vdc power is available in the machine and can easily be routed to power the industrial static bar. The advantage is that there is no need for High-Voltage(HV) cable placement and HV cable routing inside the machine.
Perforations in products can be detected using high voltage to create a spark through the perforation. Common application is testing the injection point of injection moulded products e.g. yoghurt cups, bottles and containers.
High voltage spark over can be used in a controlled way. A spark over from a special electrode to a ground reference can be detected and evaluated. Perforations in plastic webs can be detected and counted. A Perfomaster provides the hardware and software to generate a controlled spark over, detect this and evaluate the spark over to produce a pulse signal.
