3M 718A Air Ionizer Test Kit
3MTM 718A Air Ionizer Test Kit
When used with the 3MTM 718 Static Sensor, the 3MTM 718A Air Ionizer Test Kit can provide periodic veriﬁcation of air ionizer performance. The 718A Air Ionizer Test Kit consists of a charge plate and a charger. The system as a whole is designed to meet the guidelines speciﬁed in ESD Association Draft Standard D3.3.
The charge plate slides over the housing of the 718 Static Sensor. Placing the 718 in the air ﬂow of an air ionizer allows

for measurement of the ionizer’s offset balance. The charger can be used to deposit an electrostatic charge on the plate. Measuring how long it takes the ionizer to neutralize this static charge gives the ionizer discharge time.
Calibration and Certiﬁcation
The 3M 718 Static Sensor can be ordered as calibrated and certiﬁed by a 3M ISO9002 Registered Metrology Laboratory. Calibration can be traced back to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, as speciﬁed in
