The power supply unit is located in a sealed box. The box is adapted to be fixed at the place of use.

On the side wall of the STZ-6 there is a power socket with a special pin.

There is an on / off button located on the external door of the STZ-6 :

– (start – green, stop – red);

– STUNNING LAMP – red indicator light;

– ALARM LAMP – yellow indicator light;

– Digital display of stunning voltage, stunning current and frequency (x10);

– PIG821 stunning parameter control panel and stunning parameter recorder;

– Inspection window with SD card slot and fuse socket.

The device automatically measures the resistance and, based on the guidelines (included in the parameters set in the PIG820 slaughter parameters), selects the correct current values ​​(during slaughter) in order to carry out the correct stunning cycle.

The STZ 6 DW sunning device should be connected to a mains power supply made of copper conductor with a cross section of no less than 1 mm2.

The STZ 6 / DW device is suitable for stunning poultry in a water tank (with a wet electrode). Device complies with Council Regulation WE No 1099/2009 of 24 September 2009 on the protection of animals at the time of their killing and also meets the European Union requirements for the humanitarian treatment of animals.

Power supply: 230 V; 50 Hz;

Stunning voltage (output): <400 V; 50 to 700 Hz

Output current: 0,1 to 3.3 A

Weight of STZ-6 : 18 kg

Dimensions of stz-6 : 480 x 365 x 205 mm

Parameters of stunning animals in water bath are in accordance with Council Regulation (EC) No 1099/2009 of 24 September 2009 on the protection of animals at the time of killing.

Values according to WE 1099 from 2009.

Stunning parameter recorder


The recording device fulfills the requirements of the Council Regulation No. 1099/2009 of 24 September 2009. (Annex II, point 4.1) on the protection of animals at the time of killing.

The recorder device is factory-installed in the STZ 6 DW stunning device. During stunning process, the recorder performs the measurement of electrical parameters related to the slaughter and saves these parameters ​​on the SDHC memory card located in the recorder socket.
