Riedon launches e-commerce site dedicated to current sense vand fuse blocks

Riedon, a specialist manufacturer of power and precision resistors, has announced what it says is the “industry’s first” e-commerce site dedicated to the rapid sourcing of current sense shunt and fuse block product lines.

Shunts.com aims to simplify the identification and purchase of shunts and fuse blocks for use in commercial, industrial, aerospace, transportation, instrumentation, renewable energy and medical applications.

According to Rideon, the Deltec ammeter shunts deliver a rugged and accurate means of measuring a broad range of currents, while the company’s fuse blocks provide a durable and safe method for protecting high-current DC systems.

Visitors to shunts.com can select shunts with ratings ranging from 10A to 6000A and fuse blocks that are rated from 110A to 400A. Both technologies are available in a variety of configurations and mounting options. In addition, visitors to the site can request further information or submit requests for custom configurations.

Riedon’s e-commerce site also offers 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.
