Trek Charged-Plate Monitors employ a revolutionary charge plate monitor design that utilizes an ultrahigh-impedance, high-voltage follower to monitor the ion collecting plate voltage. This technique provides very high accuracy and virtually infinite impedance loading of the plate, while allowing the ion collecting plate to be charged and monitored through the same small-diameter connection. This technique also makes the measurement capacitance independent of the physical size and shape of the ion plate. Therefore, the size and shape of an ion collecting plate, as well as the measurement capacitance, may be customer specified to match a particular ESD-sensitive device within a manufacturing process. Charged Plate Monitors can be used for ionizer testing, ionizer maintenance and other ESD applications.
The simplicity of the design of the Model 156A makes it very reliable and completely portable. The Model 156A is powered by an internal rechargeable battery that offers 8 hours of operation from a full charge. Model 156A and 156A/1
This small, lightweight, easy-to-use hand-held charge plate monitor offers highly accurate measurements within a compact design. It is used to evaluate ionizer performance for parameters such as ion balance, decay performance, rate of charge decay, and other decay characteristics. Data is stored on the internal memory but is accessible via USB port.
High Temperature Charged Plates
Trek now offers high temperature ion collecting plates (charge plates) for applications requiring up to 160 C operation. please contact Trek for more information about this "HT" series.
Low Profile Charged Plate
Trek's Model 156P-LP Low Profile Charged Plate provides a design used for ESD monitoring of sensitive manufacturing processes in tight spacing situations. The thin plate is under 7 mm in height, light-weight and can be hand-held for easy transport.
DI Water Probes
Trek's Model PM08035 probes can be used for electrostatic measurement of de-ionized water. The probe can be used during critical wafer sawing processes to monitor for charge accumulation. This probe can be used with other applications or processes involving de-ionized water. Two probe models are available for user defined or application specific purposes. The Model PM08035A probe has a 0.25 inch sensor. The Model PM08035B probe has an independent wire sensor.
