1.0 General Description
2.0 Performance
The 3M™ 980/980E Ionized Air Gun
provides efficient static charge
neutralization by effectively removing
particle contamination even on the
most static-sensitive products. The 3M
980 Ionized Air Gun operates from
AC120 V power, and the 3M 980E
Ionized Air Gun from AC 230 V
power. All references to model 980
throughout this instruction pamphlet
pertain to both of the models, unless
otherwise noted.
The 980 reduces a static charge of +/1000 V to +/- 100 V in less than 1
second at a distance of 6 inches (15
cm) and 30 psi (2 bars) inlet pressure
when tested in accordance with the
ESD Association ionization standard
ANSI/ESD-S3.1, and IEC standard
61340-5-1, Figure A.5.14 Balance
variance is within
+/- 30 volts of zero at a distance of 6
inches (15 cm).
Patented technology ensures
constantly balanced ionization for
consistent control of surface charges.
The 980 never needs adjustment and
requires very little maintenance.
3.0 Power Requirements
Compact and lightweight, the console
for the 980 can be mounted anywhere
on the workstation for easy access. It
connects to any supply of clean, dry
air or nitrogen, and an internal
disposable filter collects particles from
the air supply. The electrical feed from
the console to the gun is incorporated
into the light, flexible air hose. The
gun itself is very lightweight and
ergonomically designed for long-term
user comfort and efficient operation.
The console, gun, and air hose are all
static-dissipative and ESD-safe. An
extremely low EMI level minimizes
any chance that the 980 might
interfere with other electronic
equipment or operations.
The 980 console requires AC 24 V
power, which is provided by the wall
transformer supplied with the unit. An
AC 120 V transformer is supplied with
the model 980, and AC 230 V unit is
supplied with the 980E Ionized Air
Gun.
4.0 Air Supply Requirements
For maximized operation, the 980
should be supplied with clean, dry air,
or nitrogen. The air delivery system
should utilize a refrigerated dryer or
equivalent water removal system to
achieve an upper limit of 550 ppm
water vapor at 35° F dew point. To
prevent particulate from entering the
air gun console, a 2 micron coalescing
filter or better should be used upstream.
A compressed air prefilter can be installed
at the inlet to the air gun console, such as
a Finite filter Grade 10 or equivalent.
Usage of such a filter prevents gross
3
amounts of water, particulate, or aerosols
from entering the air gun console.
Please note that the failure to use clean,
dry air or nitrogen (as defined in this
section) may result in damage to the
3M™ 980 Ionized Air Gun that will not
be covered by warranty.
5.1
Mounting the Console
Prior to mounting, plug one end of the
supplied 10 foot (3 m) RJ-11 cable into
the jack on the back of the console.
Lay the cable inside the groove inside
the console. Mount the console using
the instructions below.
5.2 Permanent Mounting
5.0 Installation
Choose a location convenient to the work
area and to the air supply. The console
takes up very little space and is adaptable
to a variety of permanent or nonpermanent installations. To minimize
bends in the air gun hose, orient the
console so that the open end that accepts
the filtered air hose to the hand unit points
toward the work area, and the male
connector points toward the air supply.
See Figure 1.
•
Attach the supplied mounting
plate to the threaded holes on the
back of the console, using the
supplied screws. See Figure 1.
•
Attach the plate to a flat surface,
such as a wall or back of a
workbench, using suitable screws
and fasteners. When mounting to a
hollow wall, be sure to use
adequate screws and wall anchors
to ensure stability of installation.
5.3 Non-permanent Mounting
Use 3M™ Dual Lock fastener strips
or pads to attach the console to a
flat surface.
5.4 Mounting onto an air supply
Fig. 1

When an air supply is close to
the work area and fitted with a U.S.standard industrial interchange quick
coupling, you can attach the console to
the air supply fitting directly using the
female quick coupler provided with the
console. If a U.S.-standard industrial
interchange quick change is not
available on the air supply, be sure to
use a suitable interconnect between the
air supply and the console, including a
prefilter as defined in Section 4.0.
6.0 Assembling the
Components
interconnect. In both cases, use a
prefilter as defined in 4.0.
CAUTION!
Protect the hose from sharp objects,
abrasion, and high temperatures. Do
not pull or pinch the hose while
assembling the components.
6.1 Insert the larger end of the filter
cartridge into the fitting at the end
of the flexible air hose. Push the
filter gently until it is firmly seated
and the metal Filter Release Tab
pops out, locking the filter into
place. See Figure 2.
Fig. 2
6.2 Connect the hose and filter to the
console. First, push the Filter
Release Button (Figure 3) in all
the way. Then, push the fitting
containing the filter all the way
into the opening in the console
until it latches with a click. The
fitting fits only in the correct
orientation. The small plastic
fitting on the end of the filter must
align with the metal guide
coupling in the console. You may
have to wiggle the filter slightly
while inserting it. See Figure 3.
Fig. 3
6.3 Connect the male (air inlet) fitting
on the console to the air supply.
The console is designed for a
U.S.-standard, industrial
interchange quick coupling. You
can attach the console directly to
the air supply using the female
quick coupler provided with the
console, or attach it using a hose
(not supplied) or some other
6.4 If you have purchased the
optional foot switch, plug its
cable into the jack on top of the
console (next to the power
switch).

7.0 Operation
WARNING!
The 3M™ 980/980E Ionized Air
Gun is NOT for use in hazardous
environments where the possibility
of explosion exists.
7.1 Make sure the Power Switch on the
top of the console is in the OFF
position. Insert the end of the 10
foot (3 m) RJ-11 cable into the
output jack on the supplied wall
transformer. Insert the wall
transformer into a properly
grounded AC 120V (for 3M 980
Ionized Air Gun) or AC 230V (for
3M 980E Ionized Air Gun)
receptacle. Use only the correct
transformer, as use of an incorrect
wall transformer may result in
damage to the unit. Refer to Section
3.0 for additional information.
7.2 Secure the power cord so that it
cannot accidentally pull the
console and gun off the
workbench.
7.3 For safety and the most efficient
ionization, set the pressure
regulator on your air or nitrogen
supply between 20-65 psi (1.4 4.5 bars). Discharge times vary
depending on air pressure.
Note:
Pressures of 30-40 psi (2.0-2.8 bars)
are commonly used for decontaminating
surfaces. Please refer to the pertinent
regulations concerning maximum air
6
pressure on hand-held air blow
devices in order to determine a safe
operating pressure.
WARNING!
Use of this equipment with air
pressure above 65 psi (4.5 bars) is
NOT recommended.
The unit is rated at 65 psi (4.5 bars)
inlet pressure, at temperatures up to
75º F (24º C), and the rating decreases
at higher temperatures. When using
high pressures, consider the ambient
room temperature as well as heat from
surrounding equipment.
7.4 Verify that neither the gun trigger
nor the foot pedal is depressed.
Turn the power switch on the
console to ON. The green LED on
the console should illuminate.
7.5 Hold the gun approximately
6 inches (15 cm) from the surface
you want to discharge and blow
off. Aim the gun and press the
trigger to blow ionized air. The
green LED on the back of the gun
lights up while you press the
trigger, indicating that the gun is
ionizing. Typically, static
electricity on a surface will be
discharged within one second.
Release the trigger when the
surface is assumed to be clean.
7.6 When the optional foot switch is
installed, you can use either the
foot switch or the handhold trigger.
7.7 If the gun is not in use, it is
recommended that the Power
Switch on the console be turned
off. This will avoid unintentional
operation of the gun. The
included S-hook may be used to
hang the gun out of the way but
still within reach.
8.0 Maintenance
The 3M™ 980/980E Ionized Air Gun
requires very little maintenance.
Occasional cleaning of the case and
emitter points, and periodic
replacement of the air filter are all that
is required. Always be sure to protect
all components from liquids and
corrosive chemicals. Carefully follow
these maintenance instructions.
8.2 Replacing the Air Filter
3M recommends changing the filter
every three months or when it begins
to look dirty. Replacement filters are
available from 3M; see Table 1.
8.21 Hold down the filter release
button on the side of the
console.
8.22 Remove the hose and filter from
the console by pulling the
textured rubber plug where the
hose emerges from the console.
Rocking the plug back and forth
can help loosen the filter. Do not
pull the hose itself. Remove the
filter from the hose fitting by
depressing the metal release tab
on the fitting and pulling the
filter.
CAUTION!
Always disconnect power and air
supplies before cleaning or replacing
components.
8.23 To install the new filter, follow
the directions described
previously under Sec. 6.0.
8.1 Cleaning the Components
8.3 Replacing the Emitter Points
8.11 Using a cloth moistened with
isopropyl alcohol, wipe the
exterior surfaces of the console
and gun to remove any dirt or
dust that may have collected.
The emitter points, built into the
plastic tip of the gun, usually last the
life of the unit. However, the tip
should be replaced if it is broken, or if
the points are bent, broken, otherwise
damaged, or if you are unable to
remove dirt by cleaning the points
with isopropyl alcohol. A replacement
tip containing a pair of emitter points
is available from 3M; see Table 1.
8.12 Using a swab moistened with
isopropyl alcohol, gently clean
the emitter points on the gun.
Extremely dirty emitter points
will increase the time needed to
discharge static.

8.31 Insert the tip of a screwdriver
into the slot on the gun barrel.
See Figure 4.
8.32 Using the screwdriver as a lever,
loosen the old clip, grasp it
between your thumb and
forefinger, and detach it from the
gun. The emitter points are very
sharp; touch only the plastic lip,
and handle it carefully. To avoid
damaging the points, do not
touch them with hard objects
such as a screwdriver.
8.36 Press the clip all the way in
using the tip of a screwdriver. It
should fit snugly between the
raised rim of the barrel and the
raised rim of the air nozzle. If
the clip overlaps the air nozzle,
it is installed backward.
8.33 To insert the new emitter points,
hold the gun with the barrel
pointing up.
8.34 Grasp the new clip between
your thumb and forefinger, and
align it so the curved edges
match the curve of the inside of
the gun barrel.

8.5 Testing for Proper Operation
8.51 To make sure that your ionizing
air gun is working properly,
check the balance and discharge
levels. The performance of the
unit should be measured
periodically using a charged plate
monitor, such as the 3M™ 711
Charge Analyzer or the 3M™
713 Handheld Ionizer Tester.
8.52 Calibration should be performed
in accordance with the ESD
Association ionization standard
ANSI/ESD-S3.1, or the IEC
standard 61340-5-1, Figure
A.5.14. At a line pressure of 30
psi (2 bars), discharge of
+/- 1000 volts to +/- 100 volts
should require less than 1 second
at a distance of 6 inches (15 cm)
and balance should be within +/30 volts of zero.
