The NAC is in talks with Global Tronics, El Sewedy Electrometer, Iskra, El Maasara, ZTE, Huawei, Gamma, Siemens, and Ericsson.
First, enhanced Beta-Mike basis-weight measurement is achieved with a special high-resolution electrometer. Measurement is said to be faster and more accurate and able to discern streaks quickly in high resolution while also providing tight machine-direction control.
According to a previous press release, a "Steyr" type firearm, ammunition, five explosive devices ready to be fired from a distance, three 12mm calibre shotguns, six mobile phones, binoculars, an electrometer, a large knife and a sum of money were seized during this operation.
Companies participating in the council include global building materials company CEMEX, the Egyptian Pico Energy Services Group, the private water company Aqualia, El Sewedy Electrometer, Kidzania and Polimeros Mexicanos.
A programmable electrometer (Keithley 6512) was used to detect the output charge Q.
The instrument consisted of a particle charger and a Faraday cup aerosol electrometer. In the years since, that same concept has been used in several rather simple aerosol instruments such as NSAM [7] and DiSCmini [8].
Designed for use with the vendor's Model 6517B electrometer and Model 8009 resistivity chamber, the KICKSTARTFL-HRMA application automates volume and surface resistivity measurements for accurate and repeatable results without the need for custom programming.
The resistivity of (PVA-PEG-PVP-MgO) nanocomposites was measured over range of temperature from (50 to 80)[degrees]C using Keithly electrometer type (2400 source mater).
All measurements were made with the combined Keithley 6517 Electrometer and Keithley Model 8009 resistivity test fixture using both in-house and commercially produced thin films.
Parameters of corona field electrometer [9] are determined as a result of field computation by use the Deutsche assumption: vector of the corona field strength differs in magnitude from the strength of Laplacean field, but their directions coincide [10], [11].
The current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of the devices were measured using a Keithley 2400 electrometer. The crystalline microstructure of the ZnO:YAG film was determined by X-ray diffraction with Cu-Ka radiation ([lambda] = 0.1541 nm) in the scanning range of 2d from 30[degrees] to 40[degrees].
One victim claimed she was pressured to buy a number of products including an electrometer to measure mental energy for a total of more than E20,000.
