Model 520 electrostatic voltmeter provides accurate noncontacting measurements of electrostatic surface voltages in a pocket-sized, hand-held design. The voltmeter features accurate measurement of surface voltage over a wide range of spacings. This feature gives the user the freedom to zoom in and inspect small spots for charge accumulation, and to measure charge accumulation in locations previously difficult or impossible to reach using a fieldmeter. The design retains the chopper-stabilized measurement technique required for operation in ionized environments.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
