We have observed 131 stars of Renson's (1991) catalogue of Ap and Am stars both in the Strömgren & Maitzen's (1976) tex2html_wrap_inline478 system as a contribution to the photometric studies of the tex2html_wrap_inline484 broad band flux depression feature in chemically peculiar stars. With few exceptions the probability grouping of Renson for membership in the CP2 group of peculiar stars is nicely reflected by peculiar values of tex2html_wrap_inline478. Comparison with already available tex2html_wrap_inline478 values yields slightly larger values due to a minor shift in the filter g1 sampling the depression. As found by Maitzen & Vogt (1983) the Geneva system peculiarity parameters correlate well with tex2html_wrap_inline478. This study demonstrates the advantageous performance of a photoelectric photometer with a rapidly rotating filter wheel moving in a stop and go mode.
