Electrostatic Charge Sensing Apparatus

Electrostatic charges in remote or confined spaces can be measured by attaching a conductor between a charged element (pr and an electrically isolated charging plate at a location convenient for measurement.

In the figure, an insulated charging plate 1 and the electrostatic voltmeter 2 can be properly mounted on support 3 at a favorable roomy location. A probe 4, attached to plate 1 by an insulated conductor 5, is placed at the remote desired position for measurement of the electrostatic charge. The charge can now be easily measured at plate 1. Alternatively, the output of meter 2, may be coupled via cable 6 to chart recorder 7 for a permanent record.
