The EK-N Series Balancers offer true zero gravity, with no drifting or strain. Tapered drum and quality springs and bearings provides smooth cable travel throughout the stroke. The EKN Series is used where electrostatic discharge can damage electronics or other sensitive assemblies, but where a "clean room" balancer is not needed. The EK-N is fitted with a grounding wire, which attaches from the balancer to the secondary support hook. The grounding wire safely dissipates any static electricity charge generated by the friction of the cable while the balancer is in use.
