With the MonroeTM 282 fieldmeter series, accuracy is unquestioned. All you need to do is hold the fieldmeter so the range finder LED beams form a non-pulsing circle. This indicates you’re at the right distance from the target. Additionally, our chopper-stabilized circuitry is immune to ionization, unlike ordinary static locators, which makes zeroing is pushbutton simple.


  • Monitor "static-free" electronic workstations
  • Measure static buildup on webs in converting, laminating, and printing operations
  • Check grounds and bonding in dry particle/powder transport systems
  • Test ionizer performance using optional charge plate adapter 282CPS


  • Easy-to-read digital display of field strength provides quantitative data with 100 V resolution
  • LED-pulsed beam range finder identifies calibrated distance from the surface
  • Chopper-stabilized measurement technique works in the presence of ionization
  • Recorder output to pass measurements to auxiliary instruments to display or record the data
  • Optional charge plate system to test ionization systems
  • Monroe 282IS is UL approved for use in hazardous environments
