Shunt type A
Shunts are used for extending measurement of currents beyond the available limits of self-contained DC Ammeters. By using Manganin as resistor material the voltage drop is kept at a constant rate.
The shunts are fully compliant with DIN 43 703 and DIN EN 60 051.
Nominal current ranging from 1 A to 250 A with a voltage drop of 60 mV or 150 mV are available.
As an option the shunts are available with a voltage drop of 100 mV or 300 mV.
Generally the type A shunts up to 25 A / 60 mV or 150 mV are pre-mounted on insulated plastic bases.
The accuracy is 0.5 % of the nominal value. On special request the accuracy can be increased to 0.2 % of the nominal value.
