Compact Brass Ended Shunts

Compact Brass Ended Shunts


Highly accurate manganin resistance d.c shunts. When a current is passed through the shunt a proportional millivolt output is produced.

Our special Compact Brass Ended Shunt is often requested for special applications due to its small size. manufactured to BS89/IEC51 class 1 it can be current rated from 5A to 50A, with 25mV, 50mV, 60mV, 75mV or 100mV output.


Shunts are used for measuring current in d.c. applications by connecting them to moving coil panel meters, digital meters or other measuring devices. Shunts can also be used in control devices such as power supplies and battery chargers for overload protection.
