Shunts

Beemet Ammeter Shunts are manufactured with high quality Manganin wire, which is the best alloy for shunts application with temperature coefficient of only 10ppm. This provides a high level of stability. Our shunts confirm to IS:1248 specifications and are approved by DOT (CACT) Bangalore.


Salient Features

• Very low temperature coefficient.

• In-line bus bar mounting.

• Withstands high overload.

• Ruggedly constructed.

• Shock & vibration proof.

• Long term stability.

• Custom made shunts available.

Instalation

• Shunts may be mounted horizontally or vertically. Horizontal mounting gives the best heat dissipation.
• Utilize the full end block surface area.
• Ample ventilation should be provided.
• Busbar should be adequately rated, cleaned and coated with a thin layer of silicon grease applied to the contact surface area.
• Bolts & nuts must be carefully tightened.​
