Say goodbye to unreliable and outdated Current Shunts and upgrade to Measurements International’s 6311A Precision Current Divider. Designed to revolutionize the current measurement process, the 6311A features a 100:1 and 1000:1 range and operates on the principles of MI’s trusted Resistance Bridge and Extenders.
Say goodbye to the inaccuracies caused by temperature instability and power coefficient issues present in traditional Current Shunts. The 6311A’s current transformer eliminates these challenges and allows for accurate measurements with ease – simply apply power and measure the divided output. With a maximum current of 10A for the 100:1 range and 300A for the 1000:1 range, both ranges can handle both DC and AC current up to 1kHz with uncertainty of < 5 and < 20 parts in 106 respectively, far surpassing the accuracy of DC shunts with a calibration uncertainty of 0.01% or higher.
Built with over 28 years of expertise, MI has established a worldwide reputation for dependability, quality, and performance. The 6311A leverages the ratio of two sets of winding on a DC Current Comparator (DCC) to deliver accurate measurements, making it the superior choice for any current measurement application.
|No temperature coefficient||Reduces uncertainty|
|No stabilization period||Measurements can be made immediately|
|No power coefficient||No error difference from 5% to 100% range|
|AC/DC||Works at DC and AC up to 1kHz|
|CT/Current Divider||Current In is divided by either 100 or 1000|
|< 5 ppm DC / 20 ppm AC||Approximately 1/20th of a traditional Current Shunt|
