During the high frequency working process the phenomenon of discharges may occur between the press plates. This problem could damage aluminum or steel plates, or the conveyor belt. To avoid this problem Start Power realized the HF Discharge Detector, a device capable of catching the arising of a discharge (arch/flashover) and stopping the HF power. In the generators made by Start Power, which have constantly controlled power, the Discharge Detector is used to decrease the applied power without turning off the generator, avoiding the interruption of the work.
The High Frequency Discharge Detector can be set up in any
press with any kind of HF generator.
