DC Electric Field Measurements
DC electric field (Electrostatic) is surface potential measured in Volts and the discharge time in sec. Shocks from DC electric fields can occur between 2000 and 4000V. DC voltage generated by synthetic material could reach 10,000 V. Nature’s electrostatic is below 100 V.
