Connect the ground post of the electrometer to an earth ground. 4. Push the power button ON. One of the range switch LEDs will blink twice in quick succession. 5. To zero the meter, press the ZERO button. You’re now ready to use the electrometer to measure charge, current or voltage. 6. Set the range switch to the desired File Size: KB. Definition. An electrometeris an electrical instrument for measuring electric charge or electrical potential difference. Basics. An electrometeris an electrical instrument for measuring electric charge or electrical potential difference. There are many different types, ranging from historical hand-made mechanical instruments to high-precision electronic Size: KB. Mr BENNET's Description of. In very clear weather, when no clouds were visible, the electrometer has been often applied to the insulated string of kites without metal, and their positive electricity caused the leaf gold to strike the sides; but when a kite was raised in cloudy weather, with a wire in the string, and when it gave sparks about a quarter of an inch long, the electricity was sensible by the electrometer .

(DMM). Electrometers can be used for virtually any measurement task that a conventional DMM can and offer the advantages of very high input resistance when used as voltmeters, and ultra-low current sensitivity with low voltage burden when used as ammeters. Electrometers are superior to DMMs by three to eight orders of magnitude in these respects. Electrometer, instrument designed to measure very small voltages and quadrant, Lindermann, Hoffman, and Wulf electrometers measure electrical potential between charged elements (e.g., plates or fine quartz fibres) within the housings of the sensitivity of these instruments is about volt.. A much more sensitive device is the vacuum-tube electrometer, a . Description. The Tyne electrometer is a compact device that can measure currents as low as 1 fA at a floating potential of up to VDC and convert it to 1 mV. The electrometer has a BNC input and 18 AWG flying lead outputs. electrometer: (ĕ-lek-tromĕ-tĕr) A device for measuring the electromotive force (voltage) of a source of electricity.

As described in Section 1 of this handbook, measurements made from high resistance sources include low DC voltage, low DC current, high resistance, and charge measurements. The instruments used to make these high impedance measurements include electrometers, picoammeters, and .
