6012M/2000 A Range Extender
The model 6012M precision DC range extender is based on direct current comparator technology. The 6012M provides a precision current division ratio of 1000:1 to a maximum of 2000 A on its primary with 2 amperes out. Used in conjunction with the Model 6025 reversing switch, the 6012M can reverse currents up to 2000 A.
The 6012M may be used as a stand-alone device to divide high DC Currents down to workable levels.
The 6012M is also used in Measurements International’s Shunt Measurement System with the 6010/6011 and 6025 high-current reversing switch for ratio measurements of 1,000,000:1 [1 µΩ shunt against a 1 Ω standard (model 9210)] automatically for direct comparisons up to 2000 Amperes. This completely Automated “turn-key” Current Shunt Measurement System, utilizing a 6010 and 6011 is the only system of its kind commercially available worldwide.
