The Static Charger Meter is non-contact, handheld, lightweight static monitoring and locating instrument. It utilizes a precision LCD display to indicate the magnitude and polarity of the electrostatic charge.
The static charge meter incorporates state-of-the-art circuitry, to enable measurements to be made for as long as 30 seconds without significant drift. In practice, the measurement time is usually less than 10 seconds.
The Static Charge Meter has good directional sensitivity and is ideal for measuring electric charges encountered in critical electronic assembly and storage areas as well as Antistatic Work Stations. It can also be used for Plastics, Paper, Textiles, Food, Explosives and Pharmaceutical Industries.
The Static Charge Meter gives direct readings of electrostatic potentials on any surface, when held at a distance of 50 mm. However, virtually any electrostatic potential can be measured by proportionately increasing the distance from the meter to the charged object. The use of very low current circuitry results in a long battery life of over 6 months under normal use.
