DC Current Shunt

Shunt Series

Accuenergy DC current shunts are engineered for precision measurement in DC current systems. Shunts are designed to measure electrical currents based on a small voltage drop created across a high-precision resistor placed in series with a load. When connected to a DC power meter, DC current shunts provide accurate energy measurements in a variety of applications including renewable energy, mass transit, battery charging, electric vehicles, welding, heavy industrial environments, and OEM applications.

  • Accuracy class: 0.5%
  • Multiple current input options to choose from
  • 75mV rated output

About DC Current Shunt Series

What is a DC shunt?

A direct current (DC) shunt is a specific type of resistor designed to send a millivolt output to a meter, or other instrument, that is in proportion to the current flowing through the shunt. Comprised of two conductive metals on the sides and connected by a band of specialized metal, called manganin, the shunt is designed to be placed along the DC line in series and, when current is flowing, a small, proportional voltage drop can be detected. DC shunts are used in instances where the current that is being measured is too large to be measured directly by a panel meter or other instrument.
