Current Shunts

The DCCS Series Current Shunts are calibration grade devices used for precise dc current measurements. They extend high accuracy measurements beyond the available limits of self-contained dc ammeters and the DCCS Current Shunts can be used as standard reference resistors.

The DCCS Current Shunts are low cost 4 terminal calibration resistors that combine high accuracy , class 0.02, long term stability and permanence of calibration in a compact unit. Constructed using carefully selected low temperature coefficient Manganin® or Zeranin® wire, depending on the value, and mounted to ensure mechanical stability, these current shunts will provide a cost-effective addition to any laboratory or workshop.

Main Areas of Application For The DCCS Current Shunt:

  • *For tests of measuring bridges or electrical temperature measuring equipment
  • *For a laboratory setup of a Wheatstone bridge
  • *As shunt resistor for current measurement
  • *As part of standard equipment in research laboratories


A variety of values are available from 100 µΩ - 1 kΩ.
