Additions to the RCS, RSH, RSI, RSJ, RSL, and RSN series of precision shunt resistors address all points along the current measurement scale, from 1A to 10,000A, while offering enhanced measurement bandwidth at the desired operating current. A four-point Kelvin connection ensures accuracy by decreasing the influence of terminations when measuring the voltage across the shunt.


The very low resistance values required for shunts, as low as 5 micro-Ohm for the 10,000A 50 mV output RSL-10000-50, are achieved using Manganin resistive elements. These are manufactured to a standard tolerance of 0.25% with certain series offering 0.1% options. Other options include 50 mV or 100 mV outputs and, where applicable, the resistors are mounted on Bakelite bases.


Parts will be available at Digi-Key from 10th May 2017.
