OUTER ENCLOSURE; MODEL Ionaer 7000, Figure 1 and 2
Enclosure – Bent aluminum sheet metal approximately 0.08” thick. Overall dimensions shown in ILL. 1.
Door - Bent aluminum sheet metal approximately 0.08” thick. Fixed to the enclosure with a piano hinge spot welded to the door and enclosure. The door and enclosure are tied together by a green wire for grounding purposes.
Supply Cord Set - Listed (ELBZ) UL/CUL Type SJT min. no 18AWG, terminated in a molded 15A, 250V mounted plug. Between 6 and 10 feet long.
HVAC Relay Connector – Part of the low voltage, energy limiting communication circuit. A 4 pin Molex connector is used on the front of the unit. This unit is designed to generate ions only when the duct circulating fan is on. This connector receives a 24VDC signal to operate the duct fan.
Keyed Lock – This unit utilizes a keyed latch to provide protection against accessing the machine compartment.
LED indicators – 4 low voltage LED lights are located on the front panel door of the unit to indicate unit status. A status light diagnostic chart can be found in Ill. 2 within the unit manual.
Antenna – Unit utilizes a 2.4GHz antenna used to relay unit information to an outside source. (This unit has not been evaluated for EMC compatibility)
Media Filter – A steel mesh filter containing carbon granules is fitted around the ionizing assembly. This carbon filter is meant to limit the amount of ozone reaching downstream of the system. The filter is held in place by four stand-offs that are secured to the enclosure by bolts. A molded plastic end cap keeps the filter from sliding laterally and vertically out of place.
IONIZING TUBE ASSEMBLY; MODEL Ionaer 7000, Figure 3 and 4
Ionizer Tube – Glass tube 38mm x 200mm containing a perforated stainless steel sheet that is connected to the high voltage supply via a conducting coupler.
Mesh Screen – a stainless steel mesh screen is cut and wrapped around the Ionizer tube. A metal arm makes contact with the mesh screen which is connected to a ground pin on the PCB.
Plastic Coupler – R/C (QMFC2/8) Chi Mei Corp. PA-765. Approximately 1.75” in diameter and 1/8” thickness, rated 94-5V. The ionizer tube is attached to a plastic coupler that has a threaded connection in the base. The plastic coupler can be attached to the plastic base and high voltage current can be sent to the ionizer tube.
Plastic Base - R/C (QMFC2/8) Chi Mei Corp. PA-765 min. 5VA rated. Plastic base is 5” x 5” and approx. 5/16” thick. The plastic base allows the ionizer tube and plastic coupler to be secured to the final assembly. High voltage connection is passed over the plastic base with stainless steel conductors and reaches the ionizer tube through a threaded connection.
End Cap - R/C (QMFC2/8) Chi Mei Corp. PA-765 min. 5VA rated. 3.25” x 3.25” and 0.25” thick. This end cap is secured to the plastic base by metal standoffs and holds the media filter in place.
Engineering Note – All plastics in the Ionizing tube assembly tested per High Voltage Insulated Material Test.
INSIDE MACHINE COMPARTMENT; MODEL Ionaer 7000, Figure 5
This product utilizes a PCB that controls the ionizing function, powers the fan, displays unit status via LEDs and provides an on/off door switch. The Ionizing Tube assembly as described on page 4 is meant to be serviceable when the unit door is open. Four bolts secure the Ionizing Tube assembly to the frame of the Ionaer 7000 unit. A small DC muffin fan is secured to the Ionizing Tube assembly to provide circulation in the filter assembly.

2. DC Fan Motor – R/C (GPWV2/8) Delta Electronics Inc. model QFR0812SH, thermally protected rated 12VDC, 0.50A. Fan is secured to the Ionizing Tube Assembly by 4 bolts. Wiring to the fan is routed to the control board and is held in place by tie downs to protect the wires from stress when opening and closing the door.
3. Appliance Inlet – This unit utilizes a R/C (AYVZ2/8) Schurter AG model 6200-23 grounding type attachment plug rated 250V, 10A that the power supply cord connects too. The attachment plug is secured to the enclosure by screws and the output leads connect to the circuit board by wires. The grounding lead is wired directly to the PCB board directly to a grounding stud.
4. Step Up Transformer – This transformer is rated 12VDC input, 6000V output. This transformer is driven by a pulse wave created by the circuit board. The transformer is mounted to the inside door of the unit adjacent to the PCB by a bolt. The output of this transformer is wired to the Ionizing Tube Assembly by means of a snap connector which allows it to generate ions to distribute to the airstream. See Figure 6 and Illustration 4. Consists of the following components:
a. Magnet Wire – R/C (OBMW2/8) Shanghai Zhong Dian Enamelled Wire Co LTD Model UEW.
b. Plastic Case Resin (acts as bobbin) – R/C (QMFZ2/8) BASF SE model B4406 G6 (o) Q113(l) rated for 23kV/mm minimum 94V-0 rated.
c. Molded Case - R/C (QMFZ2/8) BASF SE model B4406 G6 (o) Q798
Engineering Note – This transformer acts like an ignition coil and requires a high frequency pulse to properly function.
