Simco-Ion's µWire ("Microwire") AeroBar Model 571 0 is a cost-effective, high-performance ionizer specifically designed to eliminate static charge on large surface areas. It is particularly suited for sensitive flat panels where fast discharge times and low swing voltages are desired. The use of Micropulse technology applied to a corona wire system for optimal performance. The technology reduces ion recombination thus increasing product efficiency and performance.

The µWire Bar is optimized for its unique corona wire design which produces more ions than emitter points. The corona wire design also permits the bar to be placed closer to substrates without causing the "triping effect" that emitter point bars can generate.

This latest version of the µWire AeroBar includes numerous changes to provide higher performance. Most notably, the addition of a 2nd air input connector improves performance on bars 2500 mm and longer. Shields have been added to protect wire contacts, making it truly a "one swipe to clean" bar.



  • Unique corona wire design, no emitter points
  • Micropulse high voltage technology
  • Flexible and powerful setup


  • Significantly longer cleaning intervals than those emitter point technology products
  • Fast cleaning with a single swipe of the wire
  • Allows mounting close to product without danger of striping
  • Long-term balance stability and discharge time performance
  • Uniform balance over the length of the bar
  • Lower cost-of-ownership
  • Standard "plug-and-play" use or user-optimized performance for specialized applications

Application Flexibility

The µWire AeroBar can be operated with the factory default settings in " plug-and-play" mode, or optimized for a specific application using the Hand held Terminal. The bar's ability to perform well in either a vertical or horizontal position along with the µWire AeroBar low profile height design makes it easy to install in a variety of flat-panel tool locations, including mail-slot, conveyor and load/unload cassette areas.

A maximum of three µWire AeroBars may be electrically connected together in a serial fashion ("daisy-chained").

Air jet spacing at either 25 mm (recommended for target distances up to 600 mm) or 50 mm offers optimal performance for each individual application.

Handheld Terminal
Use the Hand held Terminal (HHT) to change the settings of the 5710 Aero Bar. The HHT can also be used to monitor operation status and parameter, such as bar address, frequency, power output, standby mode, alarm test, and firmware version.

Emitter Wire Cleaner


The 5710µWire Aero Bar has a specific design emitter wire cleaner: placing foam swap inside and swap along the emitter wire, those accumulated dirts can be removed in a fast and simple way. The emitter cartridge can also be detached for replacement.
