The Static Unloader represent a simple system to unload to the ground all the electrostatic energies that our body accumulate or can accumulate during the day.
Many times we got a shock opening the car’s door to get off. The resulting spark can be seen with the naked eye and hurt more or less depending on the part of the body that touches the door. That phenomenon it’s nothing but a very quick and powerful discharge of all the energy we accumulated up to that moment. The heap of these electrostatic charges is not constant and changes with reference to different factors. For instance it depends on the clothes you wear, on the moisture in the air (more dry is the climate and more easy is to accumulate these energies), spend some time in an ambient rather than in another, and so on. A simple system to avoid the accumulation of these charges is for instance not to wear rubber sole shoes. Doing so we don’t ‘isolate’ from the ground and then little by little these charges unload to the ground by the shoes and don’t succeed to accumulate thus to then unload in one stroke with a spark. Clearly the contact with the ground sets our body at the same potential. This technique is not used only for the above mentioned reasons. We have to say that being in contact with the ground it’s a very used practice in some kind of meditation practices. According to these theories, being in contact with the ground gives tangible benefits to our body and unloads the accumulated tensions. Not necessarily electrostatic charges, but nervous tensions, anxieties, and so on. For this reason it’s said to walk barefoot on the meadows for a long time, better after the dew or a summer drizzle. At those times the meadow and the ground are loaded with positives energies and our body takes a great benefit.
Running Unfortunately it’s not so easy to go barefoot on the meadows. This simple instrument gives a direct contact with the ground by a cable joined to a radiator or a water piping. Anyhow to an iron pipe or a tool directly driven in the ground. You need to check that the pipe you want to use is really joined to the ground, otherwise the circuit won’t run. As for construction it has been paid attention to simplicity. A 9V battery allows the timer to take care of the passing of time. Since an absolute precision is not necessary, the timer that has been built allows a large choice of time between few minutes and 4/5 hours. These times can change if the battery isn’t completely loaded. A 9V alkaline battery is recommended, so that it allows various cycles before expiring. Since this is a battery instrument, it causes no danger. Besides, the ground connection circuit is isolated from the timer circuit.
USE The use is very simple: - Connect the crocodile, taking it from the isolated handles, to a surely grounded pipe. - Put the bracelet round the wrist. - Choose the approximate length. - Set the switch ON. - At the end of the chosen time a simple continuous sound will be issued to mean that our ‘unload’ moment is over. - Then, it will be enough to set the switch OFF and disconnect the bracelet from the wrist. - Then you can disconnect the terminal from the pipe.
Relaxation You can now relax as you prefer. You can do meditation, you can practise Yoga, you can fall asleep, you can read. Well, you can use this time in the most suitable way for you. It is recommended not to stay by electronic or electric apparatus to avoid being in their electric field. Besides, if these devices have a leak, you avoid to cause a dangerous situation. You can never forget that you’re connected to the ground and therefore a preferred vehicle for eventual electric discharges, practically you’re a conductor. The device has not a really direct ground connection, according to common used standard, this is to well reduce possible dangers. There is a point to clear: even if the timer provides various hours times, for our purposes we don’t need to exploit them all. Two hours are enough.
