Volume resistivity measurement - ASTM D991

Post by AndriesB » July 11th, 2012, 1:54 am

I need an instument to measure Volume Resistivity for Conductive rubbers according to ASTM D991 (copy of method can be found http://file.yizimg.com/175706/2011090910491868.pdf )
Have the test fixture but need instrumentation to measure it.
Will any of Keithley's products be suitable??
