In Solar Panel installations, for the monitoring of DC current flowing out of the battery, it is important to install a measurement device such as a current shunt.... - Read More
Elektronik Praxis published an article on Riedon resistors titled “High-precision, active high-current shunt for industry and automotive”. This was originally published in German however, it is translated here into English.
Riedon’s busbar shunts play an important role in New Life International’s water purification systems. New Life International operates as a non-profit organization.
A prominent University in the Mid-West recently approached us looking for a current measurement solution. They are in the process of installing a high voltage DC system in one of their campus buildings. This means that everything in the building will be powered by direct current including LED lighting, appliances like the refrigerator and even the HVAC. High voltage DC systems such as this have the potential to be much more efficient when the power source is from solar or other technologies that generate DC current, as there are fewer conversion steps degrading overall efficiency.

Fuses are safety devices used to limit the amount of current through an individual circuit branch, or to limit the amount of current delivered from a voltage source such as batteries. Read about how Riedon uses and supports fuse blocks.
Ever wondered what a precision shunt is? Perhaps how it might be used and what types of products use this type of electronic device? We go over these details and show how a precision shunt works and how it is used in the real world.
There are a number of considerations that should be taken into account when deciding on how and where to mount a shunt. Electrically, it is common practice to place the shunt on the ground or return line in close proximity to the power source.
