Direct current instrument shunts are used to extend the range of ammeters whenever the current to be measured is too large to be passed through the instrument—usually currents over 50 amperes. The shunt, therefore, is a diverter which is used to "shunt" the majority of the current around the indicating instrument. Essentially the shunt is a specially-designed resistor which delivers a millivolt output (to a millivolt meter or instrument) in proportion to the current flowing through the resistor.
All RAM METER INC. shunts are standardized to deliver either 50 millivolts or 100 millivolts at their full rated current, although there are times when other millivolt ratings are desired or other physical sizes or configurations are more suitable for an application.
- 0-50 and 0-100 DCmV Standard Outputs
- Adjusted Accuracy: ± .25%
- Rated Accuracy: ± .33%
- Portable-type shunts come on insulating bases whichcan be fastened to any flat surface
- Also available WITHOUT a base by special request
CUSTOM SHUNT DESIGN
We welcome the opportunity to work with you on your special design applications where other current, millivolt, size, accuracy or environmental conditions preclude the use of our standard catalog items. If this is the case, please CONTACT US and one of our highly trained sales representatives will help you find a solution.
