Negative Ion Generator Owner's Manual- All IG- series models
Please read all instructions and warnings furnished with the ionizer
carefully before using.
Use of your Negative Ion Generator
1.Insert the ion emitter; simply plug it into the opening in the top of
the ionizer. Push straight in; do not twist. If necessary, gently bend the wires so that
the tips are about 1 inch apart and at least 1 inch above the top of the ionizer. Leave
emitter in place.
2.Place the unit in an open area of the room, away from other objects or walls.
3.Plug in your unit; you'll see the light on the front glow.
4.If you almost touch the ion emitter with your ear, you should hear a faint hiss. You
should also feel a movement of air while you are near the tips of the ion emitter. When it
is dark, turn out the lights, and after a few minutes (when your eyes become accustomed to
the dark) you may be able to see a small pinpoint blue glow on the tips of the emitter.
The glow will intensify as you move your hand close, and disappear for a few seconds if
you touch it. Your Negative Ion Generator is doing its job.
5.Now walk away and enjoy the benefits of negative ions!
6.To keep your ion generator working at peak efficiency, trim the ends of the SSE emitter
wires back 1/16" about once a month (once every 3 months for the new SSE emitters). A
pair of wire cutters works fine. Just hold it over a wastebasket and trim off the worn
ends of the ion emitter wires. Trimming is never necessary for the optional CFE emitter.
7.Keep the unit clean!
Is it safe to use one near a computer?
Yes. We run our negative ion generators near computers and other sensitive equipment. We
have never had a problem, and are not aware of anyone who has.
An IG-133A ionizer near our main PC (with a 21" monitor) happens to be about 4 feet
away, on a shelf to our left on a wall over our head. It does the job of neutralizing
positive ions from the monitor in front of us there; high levels of negative ions are
detectable within a foot of the front of the monitor.
If you place the ionizer at least a foot or so away from a computer, you should be safe.
However, please note that if you touch any ion emitter to certain portions of sensitive
electronic equipment, (such as the connectors on the back of your PC or cables, etc.), the
potential for damage is significant.
It is possible that if you place a negative ionizer too close to your monitor, it might
get dustier than normal, because the monitor's positive charge can attract negatively
