Wire Type Shunts

Posted on Posted in Shunts

Description

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

A range of shunts designed mainly for low cost applications, manufactured to class 1.5

Application

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..
