Static Locator Measures Electrical Charges

Norton, OH | Meech Static Eliminators USA has launched the 983v2 Static Locator, a lightweight pocket-sized device said to provide an accurate measurement of static electrical charges over a wide range of voltages. This new locator has been developed for use by production, maintenance, inspection, and quality engineers. Its design is suitable for use on any material where static is an issue.

The Model 983v2 Static Locator features a “Continuous” mode that can measure fluctuation in charge levels, while the highest charge can be detected with the “Peak Hold” mode enabled. With an integral distance meter, a clear indication of the correct operating range is given, and this means that all readings will be both accurate and consistent. For further versatility, there is a large, high contrast LCD screen with digital display that allows the locator to be used in all lighting conditions. Reportedly offers fast response time, low drift, and intuitive operation.

Measurement range of the new locator is -200kV to +200kV at a distance of 150 mm, with a resolution of 100V and an accuracy of better than +/- 5% on calibration. All units are supplied with an individual calibration certificate for QC records. Constructed in a robust plastic housing for high durability the Model 983v2 is also supplied with an instrument case for safe and clean storage.
