Spanish term or phrase: Grupo Patrón de FEM

actualmente disponemos de un grupo patrón de FEM constituído de pilas tipo weston....

I realize that this is not an easy phrase...I misplaced my user id to login to the specialist site and I am still waiting to get a new password from proz.com. However, if anyone out there has come across these terms, I would greatly appreciate your help, as always.

"Grupo patrón", I think, could be a standard generator.

FEM = "Estudiar el principio del potenciómetro y medir la fuerza electro motriz (FEM) de una batería seca utilizando el potenciómetro. Determinar la diferencia de potencial y resistencia interna de la batería cuando está alimentando corriente a un circuito."

Best wait for s.o. else.!!

EMF Standard Enclosures

As already mentioned, fem is "fuerza electro motriz", which is electromotive force in English (EMF).

When being tested, the Weston cells are grouped in an enclosure (which I believe is the translation of "grupo" here".

Patrón of course means "standard".

In a search through the Internet, you can see these enclosures being sold, being called "EMF Standard Enclosures". I am listing a company below that sells this particular product.
