Riedon, manufacturer of power and precision resistors, launches what it calls the industry's first e-commerce site dedicated to the rapid sourcing of current sense shunt and fuse block product lines. Shunts.com promises to significantly simplify the identification and purchase of shunts and fuse blocks for use in a wide variety of commercial, industrial, aerospace, transportation, instrumentation, renewable energy and medical applications. Orders placed on the site will typically be dispatched within 24 hours.
Rideon Deltec ammeter shunts measure a broad range of currents, while the fuse blocks provide a safe method for protecting high-current dc systems. Shunt resistors and fuse blocks are essential for current sensing and protection in the battery monitoring and off-grid backup solutions deployed in recreational, emergency, and industrial vehicles and marine systems. They also play a critical role in power conversion, PV inverters, DC motor drives, traction, welding, mining and electroplating equipment.
Visitors to the site can select shunts with ratings ranging from 10A to 6,000A and fuse blocks that are rated from 110A to 400A. Both technologies are available in a variety of configurations and mounting options to accommodate the broadest possible range of installation requirements. In addition, visitors to the site can request further information or submit requests for custom configurations.
Riedon's site also offers comprehensive tutorials on current sense shunts and fuse blocks. The 'Shunts 101' tutorial covers shunt operation and installation, typical use cases, how to choose the correct shunt resistor for a given application and standard and custom shunt options. In the fuse blocks tutorial, visitors can find out more about how to specify fuse blocks alongside product and application examples.
