Shunt resistors

Shunt resistors from Müller + Ziegler: Reliable and have diverse uses

Shunt resistors (Shunts) have diverse uses. They can be used to extend the range of moving coil meters as well as to supply a current-dependent voltage drop, which may be important for the electronic further processing of direct current in energy management or in measurement engineering, for example. Since the voltage drop is proportional to the prevailing current strength, it can therefore be measured. Shunt resistors may also be referred to as current measuring resistors or shunts.

Müller + Ziegler: Highest quality for precise measurements

As a company with over 100 years’ experience in the field of measurement engineering, you can trust in the quality and reliability of our shunt resistors and other products in our highly diverse range. Shunts from Müller + Ziegler have an accuracy of 0.5% in relation to their rated value. Should you require models with an even higher accuracy, you can of course obtain special versions from us that achieve a higher accuracy of 0.2% or even 0.1%. Request a no-obligation product catalogue and take a look at our convincing wide range of high quality electrical meters. Because our products are made in Germany, we are able to make exceptionally reliable and robust shunt resistors to meet your demands.

Bespoke reliable shunt resistors

As a renowned company in the measurement engineering sector, we are constantly striving to satisfy our customers. So in addition to our choice of custom-made products, we also offer shunt resistors manufactured according to your drawing. In this way you can obtain shunt resistors tailored to your individual installation requirements. By virtue of our in-house production we are able to fulfil almost any customer request. Our custom-made products include numerous shunt resistors with, for example, compensation for the feeder resistance or with deviating rated current or voltage drop.

We also have shunts suitable especially for DIN rail mounting or screw attachment in measuring equipment. Our shunt resistors up to 25 amps are always mounted on an insulating base. Compatible with these shunts, we also have diverse meters for DIN rails, such as moving coil meters for DIN rail mounting. The potential screws have an M5 thread. In addition, the connector copper and resistor material (manganin) are hard-soldered with silver solder. Manganin has a low temperature coefficient of specific electrical resistance as well as a low thermoelectric voltage against copper. As a result, our shunts are particularly robust and you can trust in their reliability and long lifespan when used in your company.

All of the models listed are class 0.5 shunts according to DIN EN 60 051 with dimensions according DIN 43 703. Should you have specific installation requirements, please contact us at any time. Our competent staff strive to supply you with bespoke models of the best quality. This is a commitment backed by our good name, for at Müller + Ziegler the individual wishes of our customers take priority. With the high quality of our products, you, as the customer, are on the safe side. Therefore, when purchasing new shunts for your company, rely on the manufacturer of electrical measuring equipment who you trust – Müller + Ziegler.
