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.

  • Base mounted shunt

  • 0.05V output available in select resistance values between 83.3µΩ and 294.1µΩ
  • 0.1V output available in select resistance values between 166.7µΩ and 588.2µΩ
  • Current rating from170A to 600A
  • Standard tolerance of ±0.25% with ±0.1% parts available on request
  • Dielectric strength 750VDC (terminal block to base)
  • Operating temperature −40°C to +60°C
  • UL listed
