Two Faraday‐cup electron collectors have been developed which are capable of measuring the absolute integrated beam current of the Stanford linear accelerators to better than 0.5% at electron energies ranging from 4 to 300 Mev. A description of these instruments is given and complete design criteria are offered which allow the extension of the range to Bev energies.
