New Static Locator Launch by Meech Static Eliminators USA Inc.

Meech is pleased to announce the launch of the new 983v2 Static Locator, a lightweight pocket-sized device that provides 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 and its innovative design means that it is suitable for use on any material where static is an issue.

The Model 983v2 Static Locator features a �Continuous� mode that can easily 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. Combined with its fast response time, low drift and intuitive operation, the new Model 983v2 is the static locator of choice for companies around the world.

Measurement range of the new locator is -200kV to +200kV at a distance of 150mm, 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.

A digital image and diagram is available.
