The VIP-200 Dielectric Cell
The Vertex VIP-200 is a stainless steel,
cavity-type test cell for performing dielectric and
conductivity measurements. Parallel, vertical, plane
electrodes are contained in the cavity, with one electrode
being movable with a micrometer adjustment. The electrode
gap is adjustable up to about 0.4 inches, with readability
better than 0.001 inches. Fringe electric fields are
suppressed around the low end (fixed) electrode by a
grounded guard ring isolated by a layer of Teflon™.
several micrometer options available in the VIP-200 series dielectric cell.
The VIP-200 has a simple micrometer barrel, available in S.A.E. or metric
graduations. The VIP-200F incorporates a fristion thimble micrometer, which
permits each technician to apply the same compression force to the sample.
The deluxe VIP-200D, also having a friction thimble, has a digital
electronic micrometer with a 5 digit LCD display convertible from metric
to S.A.E. units.
