Riedon RSB Series

Riedon RSB Series
The RSB series of precision current shunts from Riedon have been especially designed for DC ammeters and similar instruments. These base-mounted shunts offer current ratings from 170A up to 600A with outputs of 0.05V, 0.1V or custom options available. They utilise a Manganin® resistive element and have a standard tolerance of ±0.25% with ±0.1% parts available on request. The very low resistance values required for the shunt resistors, which range from 83.3µΩ at 600A to 588.2µΩ at 170A, are provided by the Manganin® resistive elements. The RSB precision shunt resistors are also UL listed and feature a 4-terminal design, separating the heavy duty load carrying connections from the voltage sensing terminals.
