PostSubject: OFICIAL ION HELP THREAD   Sun Aug 05, 2007 7:35 pm

oficial ion tech help...HP or LP Tanks?

First and foremost the ION will take HP and LP style tanks. It is more recommended to use an HP tank as some cheaper made LP tanks produce some shootdown.

What is the bore size for the stock ion barrel?

.689

Where is the Serial #?


Can the Ion run on co2?

Yes, it can. Compressed air is recommended however not required. If you use CO2, anti-siphon CO2 is required. Most proshops carry anti-siphon tubes available for purchase if you need to upgrade your CO2 tank.

Can the Ion shoot faster than 17 bps?

Stock it is capped by the board. The internals are in no way capped at 17. Ydna has proven that it can shoot 21-22 with stock internals and an uncapped board. With a QEV (Quick Exhaust Valve) it can shoot close to 28, or faster.

What regulators can the Ion accept?

The asa is not "reverse threaded", it can accept any standard threaded regulators (AKA Sidewinder, Bob Long Torpedo, CP reg, Evolve Pit, just to name some examples). Reverse threading only means that the screw using to adjust the pressure is reversed, not the actual threads itself.

Does the Ion really have drop off over long strings?

As long as the marker is operating correctly and the electronics are correctly set, no there will be no drop off.

Can I remove the vertical adapter filter?
Does the vertical adapter filter cause shootdown?

This filter is there to help keep your incomming air supply clean and free of debris. The filter is designed to be used with both CO2 and HPA; it's equally valuable regardless of which air supply you use.
Although the reg filter isn't absolutely required for the marker to function, you're better off having it installed without the need, than you are not having it when you actually do need it. Both CO2 and HPA can have dirty fills; this can cause problems if the solenoid isn't protected (which is why the filter is present in the marker). Here is an example of what you get with no filter and a dirty air fill.

How does a QEV effect the Ion's performance?

It allows the air to escape at the point of the fitting instead of the air having to go back to the solenoid to be released. It also keeps excess grease out of the solenoid, as well as decreasing your operating pressure and reducing your dwell to ~ 12-16 blinks.It also allows it to cycle alot faster than it previously could. Most likely it could shoot up to 28 balls per second with a QEV and uncapped board.If you do decide to get a QEV, use teflon tape to set it in place. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT torque it into place. You can easily get it stuck that way and break the internal threads on the QEV and possibly on the Ion body itself. So be VERY careful. For questions on QEV instillation look here.
Can I install two QEV's to increase performance?

There is only need for one QEV on the middle banjo. The rear banjo is a one way contant output hose which never exhausts air in the other direction.

What is dwell?

Dwell is the amount of time that the solenoid remains open (measured in milliseconds, or ms for short), which translates to how long the bolt will stay forward. This determines the length of time that the marker's valve will release pressurized air to fire the paintball. Increases in dwell will generally increase your velocity as well, though there are working limits to this.
Dwell is adjusted in half-millisecond intervals, starting at 8 milliseconds. This means the lowest setting on the board is 8-ms, first setting up is 8.5-ms, then 9-ms, 9.5-ms, etc etc. The stock dwell setting is 52 blinks from the bottom (34-ms). We don't recommend you adjust the dwell unless you wish to spend time and air fine-tuning the marker to possibly receive better performance. If you accidentally adjust your marker's electronics and now the gun doesn't fire, readjust the dwell to 52 and try again.

How many shots will I get off with a 72/3000 tank?

This is all dependent on all your other upgrades. As a rather general rule of thumb, a 3000 psi system gets 10 shots per cubic inch, and a 4500 psi system gets 15 shots per cubic inch. For example, a 47/3000 air system will give roughly 450-500 shots (the formula says 470) on an average gun. The formula estimate is pretty rough; some guns will do a lot better, and some will get fewer shots than the formula says, but it gets you in the ballpark.

How do I adjust the trigger length?

Remove the grips and there should be a small hole under the trigger guard on the gripframe. Put a 1/8 inch allen wrench in that hole and tighten to reduce the length, and loosen the increase length. A new magnet can also be inserted into the trigger, but I'd suggest a New Designz roller trigger, as it will save you the time and hassle of messing with the trigger, as well as being nicer in nearly every way.


What exactly is the Ion's "shell"?

It is a polymer shell that protects the body, and that's it. It also helps hold the eye board and ball detents in place. It in no way is related to any performance aspects of the Ion marker.

What threaded barrels does it take?

Impulse

What about feednecks?

Impulse

How do I adjust the velocity?

Velocity in the Ion is directly linked to the input pressure. Thus, take a cresent wrench and adjust the regulator via the screw on the bottom. Higher psi input = higher FPS... and vice versa.


How do I turn it on?

First, make sure the battery is in the gun. Then press the red membrane to turn the gun on. Press it once for on w/ eyes on (blink once per cycle, or if there's paint it will blink quickly). Press it again for eyes off (blink twice per cycle). Press and hold it for 2 seconds until it goes solid red, then let go to turn it off.

What is a solenoid?

A solenoid is a electronically controlled valve that directs pressure, in terms of a paintball marker, the air flow. If you look at the diagram by Twiek, it changes the pressure from front to back to fire the marker. This is the simplest explanation... they are very advanced little machines though.

How to take off the feedneck

Take a hair drier and heat up the threads. Then take a grip wrench and take off the neck or use a vice and clamp on the neck and twist. Remember to go counter clockwise so you donít strip the existing threads on the breech.

TROUBLESHOOTING

ION WILL NOT MAKE FULL CYCLES-CHECK BATTERY RESET DWELL

ION IS SHOOTING DOWN-CHECK AIR,BATTERY,VOLOCITY,AND DWELL

ION WILL NOT TURN ON- BATTERY, MAKE SURE BUTTON IS HITTING SWITCH.

ION IS BREAKING PAINT IN FIRING CHAMBER-BAD PAINT-EYES R OFF,DETENTS ARE WORN AND BALLS R DOUBLE FEEDING.

BALLS R FALLING OUT OF IONS BREACH-URGENT NEED OF DETENTS CHANGE.
