Current ShuntsThe 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.
