PHY-152 ES1 Manual Addendum V. Procedure V-1: Connect the electrometer to the ice pail as shown in the manual, but keep in mind that the electrometers now in use look different. You will still connect the red lead from the input (sensing cable) to the pail or inner conductor and the black lead to the shield or outer conductor. The electrometer should be on the 100V scale, with the output cable connected to the DVM set at the 20 VDC scale. For the DVM connection, red is positive, black is negative. V-2: The person operating the electrometer must be grounded using the wrist strap. Failure to do so may render the electrometer inoperable. Push the zero button on the electrometer and observe that the DVM reads almost exactly 0 V. Do not rely on the needle on the electrometer itself. If the green light over the 100 V scale is blinking, the batteries need to be replaced. Alert the TA if your electrometer does not zero, or if the green light is blinking. V-3: No change, skip this step.
