Title: Electronic dust collector and air conditioner with electronic dust collector

Abstract: An electronic dust collector has a discharge line spaced parallel to a dust collector electrode. Discharge line fixing parts at the ends of the discharge line are bent outward to increase the distance from the dust collector electrode, thereby reducing the likelihood of abnormal discharge between the discharge line fixing parts and the dust collector electrode. In another embodiment, the discharge line and the discharge line fixing parts remain in alignment, and the ends of the dust collector electrode facing the line fixing parts are bent outward. The electronic dust collector may be part of an air conditioner. The dust collector electrode has a heater therein for self cleaning.
